At the time when Dota 2 7.00 was released before a week ago, everything seemed so messy. Now, a new Dota 2 update 7.01 took place. We supposed these changes are going to come very soon feeling the 7.00 was kind of buggy. Did Valve find a solution to all of the bad happenings and put an end to that? Time will tell.
The update fixed a lot of things including the hall of fame, effigies and PA arcana gravestone bugs where models were not appearing. One of the most important things they also changed are the broken spells of some heroes.
Monkey King and others
While speaking of Monkey King before that he’s too OP, now it has been nerfed. They fixed Jingu Mastery and the ignoration of the enemy armor towards its lifesteal calculation. Also, Jingu Mastery counter duration is reduced from 15 to 10 seconds which pretty much means you are not going to see the number of hits above your hero’s head for that long. Speaking of Monkey King fixes, Boundless Strike crit strike
Speaking of Monkey King, Boundless Strike Critical Damage multiplier is now rescaled to 140/160/180/200%. The spell is no more OP and everyone can stop banning Monkey King while the picking phase is on.
While all of this has been going on, there have been a lot of other fixes too. Visage is also not feeling that strong after the Dota 2 7.01 patch came to live. Visage’s base damage is reduced by 3. Also, Visage’s familiar HP is reduced to 300/500/700, for which I can say “thank god”.
The annoying Treant Protector’s bash from Nature’s Guise spell have been also rescaled to 0.7/1.2/1.7/2.2. Personally I do not know if this should count as a nerf because the highest level of Nature’s Guise is still the same, which is 2.2 seconds. However, Treant level 25 talent is changed from +20% 2s bash to 50s respawn time. This is kind of ok.
On the other side, Sven has been kinda buffed with his talent tree. From +6 to +8 to all stats properties and also from +15 MS to +20.
Guess what, this is for all the Meepo lovers, do not worry now the Meepo clones can pick up runes too. This should be really funny as I cannot wait to go into the game and spectate a good Meepo player picking all the runes on the map.
This is probably the most annoying thing and I personally think that Necrophos will be picked in Captains Mode every single time when he’s available. Nothing has been changed with necro except the fact that he’s been added to CM. This is going to be frustrating and can’t wait for one of the bigger tournament events just to see what kind of love will Necro receive.
