Dota 2 May 16 Update Notes

The latest Dota 2 update rolled out today, May 16, 2023. This update addresses many gameplay anomalies, provides fixes to heroes, items, and abilities, and even clarifies tooltips.

One of the significant changes was the correction of the Universal heroes’ damage per level tooltips that were previously showcasing an incorrect value. The Tormentor tooltips also underwent revision to correctly display the reflection, damage barrier, and regen values.

Furthermore, the issue with Neutral Tokens being inaccessible when sent to stash by hero clones has been fixed. This is a considerable relief for players who leverage the ability of heroes like Meepo and his clones to acquire and utilize neutral items efficiently. For the complete patch notes, check below.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
