Patch is out BTW, I'll post some stuff from the files when I get it downloaded.
Only Treant Protector.
Dear Dota 2 Test.
Please update, I want to play you.
Yeah novid is pretty useful.
I like that you can ping the runes now, and I really want to try treant protector.
Runes should show on the minimap at all times for spectators, would be nice when watching a cast to see where a rune spawned.
Meepo had a lot of texture work done, he's been totally redone as his hood is now blue, and he looks a bit more polished, we'll probably see him after Ogre/Chaos. The texture below is just his head.
The yellow in Lanaya's texture work is gone, it's been replaced with some sort of orange, along with some more work done in it.
The courier got some shield icon of sorts, mabye it's to show it's immune to some magics or it's a ghost scepter/bkb sort of thing.
Phantom Assasin got her skill icons reworked:
Really hope Mortred is next week.
Can't wait for her.
Treant's voice is also really gravely and badass. He's got lines for using tangoes, like "Sorry.", or "I'm sure you understand."
meepo and ogre/chaos will be next
or undying out of nowhere
Treant Protector is really growing on me, probably going to choose him a lot this week.
Since he's very similar to Tidehunter I'm probably going to build him almost exactly the same way.
Although you pretty much have to spam Nature's Guise (which is fairly easy given its cooldown and mana cost) to make him truly different and worthy of being chosen over Tidehunter since his ult is similar but imo worse. Once you do that though he becomes a very hilarious, enjoyable, and useful hero.
I thought they got rid of the courier shield ability for balance reasons.
Also has anyone seen the new aegis player death animation. I want to see it.
Nevermore's new lines are really good.
Oooh, I just saw the new aegis death animation. Very flashy.
Now you'll DEFINITELY know that a player had the aegis. No missing that.
I wanna hear the new voicework. I love what this game dors with voices. If you buy a lot of branches as treant protector he achkniwledges it
How useful is treant's invis?
Treant Protector looks basically done, although I think his ult really needs some polishing visually-wise. The blue tree thing looks and even sounds like lightning, and the vines that grab the heroes look really awkward flailing about.
Otherwise, he looks amazing. Can't wait to see him in-game!!! Valve never ceases to surprise me with how well they recreate the heroes.
Does overgrowth stop spells?
Nature's Guise seems to have no Fade Time.
So you're safe as soon as you use it! Never get ganked, hooray!
Found out it doesn't, I still get ulted by bane when he's in the ult.
Yeah, you can still cast spells when caught by overgrowth.
BUT, overgrowth goes through magic immunity.
BUT BUT if you become magic immune while stuck in the ult, you'll become free.
I wonder why his ulti is so weak :/
For example, Tidebringer's ulti does almost the same job (0,25 sec differense), but providing a full stun and deals 150 more damage. It also has almost two times larger radius and doesnt trigger linkens.
TP can repair towers? Cool.
