Valve’s decision to forego the usual BattlePass for Dota 2 this year leaves the community wondering about the game’s future content. Fresh insights from a recent data mining session of the August client update might provide some clues. However, as always, it’s pivotal to understand that this information is unconfirmed and might contain speculative elements.
1. Broodmother Persona
An intriguing placeholder suggests the possibility of a new persona for Broodmother, amplifying the curiosity of fans.
2. Skywrath Mage and Vengeful Spirit Arcanas
The community has been abuzz about these Arcanas for a while, especially after a previous hint about the Skywrath Mage Arcana. This latest update fuels the anticipation, suggesting that Arcanas for both Skywrath Mage and Vengeful Spirit might soon be unveiled.
3. ‘Crownfall’ and Vengeful Spirit Lore
A newly discovered file format, NOVELDEF, has emerged in the update. The presence of a file named CROWNFALL.noveldef points towards a potential narrative connected to the Vengeful Spirit’s lore.
4. Road To The International Quests
Hints about a quest system, termed “RoadToTI”, suggest a possible alignment with the upcoming Dota 2 championship, The International.
5. Collector’s Cache Sets
The update provides links to potential new hero sets, including those for Dragon Knight, Lone Druid, and others. These might be part of an upcoming Collector’s Cache release.
6. Muerta Store and Possible Immortal
The mysterious term ‘Muerta store’ has been discovered, and with a new armor slot added for Muerta, speculation is rife that an Immortal item for this character could be in the offing.
The diligence of a data miner named Chuchelo has brought much of this information to light. However, given the speculative nature of these findings and Valve’s focus shift from the BattlePass, it’s essential to approach this with cautious optimism.
While the exact content Valve intends to release remains shrouded in mystery, the Dota 2 community can certainly expect some thrilling updates in the coming months.
