Dota 2 January 8 Patch Notes

Valve has released an update for Dota 2, fixing some issues related to the Frostivus event. You can find the changes below.

Dota 2 Update – 1/8/2024

Some items from the Frostivus 2023 Treasure Chest were missing unusual variants. Those have been added. Over the next couple days, unusual items from these sets that should have been dropped will be granted.

In addition, over the last few days we’ve addressed several gameplay issues:

  • Fixed Frostivus wards not being selectable/attackable
  • Fixed an issue where pinging certain items in quickbuy could cause the game to lag for teammates
  • Fixed an issue where Arc Warden Tempest Doubles could gain gold by selling Midas
  • Fixed Doom Devour Neutral abilities not leveling up automatically at the time when neutral abilities would scale
  • Fixed Lina permanently gaining Fiery Soul stacks until she casts another spells if she was broken when supercharging with Laguna Blade
  • Fixed Tiny Tree particle showing at the wrong time
  • Fixed a rare server crash with motion controlled abilities (e.g. Spirit Breaker Charge of Darkness)
  • Fixed an issue with Profile Showcase where items could appear floating before the rest of the hero loaded and fixed an issue with anchor points on ultrawide monitors
  • Added missing descriptions for various recipes
  • Fixed some bugs in the tutorials in the Learn tab caused by the 7.35 Gameplay Patch

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.
