Dota 2 7.27d patch notes – Spectre, Zeus nerfed, 27 other heroes changed

Almost a quarter of the hero pool get tweaks in the latest patch

Dota 2 has released the patch notes for its 7.27d patch, which sees a few changes to the items in the game, but mainly focuses on the hero pool. 29 of the 119 heroes come in for tune ups, or close to a quarter of the entire roster.

These changes range from a minor tweak to a hero’s Agility scores, to a complete retooling of their ability pool, to everything in between. Void Spirit and Snapfire, the two heroes most recently added to the game, do not come in for tune ups here, but Mars, the only hero added in 2019, does get a buff. Mars’ Intelligence has been raised, as has their mana regen.

Compared to the hero changes, it’s slim pickings on the item front. Only four – Drums of Endurance, Heaven’s Halberd, Soul Ring, and Helm of the Denominator – get any sort of change at all. Dota 2 is constantly pushing and pulling the game to cope with developing metas, and this patch is no different.
