Dota 2 Items: 7.20 Impressions On The Thing Changes

Previously, FOX Sports Asia has shared its bits of knowledge about the Ability revamps of a few Heroes in the most recent Dota 2 items 7.20 update.

Now, here are a few contemplations about the thing changes.

Movement speed bonuses

Dota 2 leaderboards

With specific things giving level rewards and some having rate based ones, while certain Heroes get rewards from capacities and abilities, either level or percent, there appeared to be irregularities.

For uniformity, a percentage-based movement is now implemented on all items that provide such.

While it may impair the movement speed of most Heroes early game, it is entirely a different story on the latter stages.

Phase Boots

Dota 2 update

By and large, Power Treads is favored over this thing, principally in light of the alleged “tread-exchanging” which can be viable for most Heroes, and a decent lift for conveys.

Phase boots most recent update, in any case, is between being positive or not. It passively provides gives phased development at whatever point one is seeking after an adversary, allowing higher odds of effectively pursuing. In any case, consider the possibility that a truly necessary getaway and juke is required, now that it would not give rewards when not attempting to assault.

The components were also updated, now needed a Chainmail and Gloves of Haste, which is a weird combination.

Power Treads

Power Treads now have Blades of Attack as the component, instead of the Gloves of Haste that is now part of Phase Boots.

This gives all the more right clicking capacity to conveys, particularly that the property extra was raised by two, to the detriment of some attack speed

Tranquil Boots

Dota 2 update

There are occurrences when underpins need to drop their Tranquil Boots on the ground, if not in the Backpack, amid pulls to make sure they would not lose the rewards. When endeavoring to deny from the backlines, the same occurs. This can be tedious for them since little activities have huge “cost.”

Now, Tranquil Boots do not get disabled when doing so, alleviating this item’s buyers of their long-time predicament.

Dota 2 items: Sange

The Maim mechanic seemed too early to be “accessible” at a cheap cost, knowing that the Eye of Skadi already slows in the game. In fact, players should resort to the latter instead.

As a result, Sange was changed to provide Status Resistance. A stat that is so limited yet needs to be more available for users.


Dota 2 axe

When the item was introduced, players anticipate it as the third weapon of the trio, the other two obviously being Sange and Yasha.

Despite the fact that its cost was refreshed, from 500 to 650, to coordinate its sister things, it would now be able to be combined with both of them.

This gives possibilities to Heroes which mainly rely on Abilities yet need the extra tankiness such as Timbersaw or Pudge, or to Agility Heroes that need spell amplification alongside their mobility such as Ember Spirit.

Ring of Tarrasque

Dota 2 items

First introduced in Artifact, it is quite expected that this item will be ported to Dota 2.

Small components like this, which provide HP and regeneration, are important for bigger items such as Heart of Tarrasque, especially that it is costly.

Holy Locket
dota 2

This is now the item which amplifies healing and HP regeneration. A feature from Spirit Vessel already removed, which can be helpful for healers such as Omniknight, Oracle, or Dazzle

They don’t really need to depend on “charges” like before to make sure they can boost their heals and Holy Locket can be entirely convenient

Solar Crest

Dota 2 update

There was a period that this thing was so prominent. Particularly that it is easy to build, but quite falls off in the late game. The Accuracy it once gave does not so much have a noteworthy effect.

There are a lot of instances that Medallion already suffices, outshining this item even it if is its upgrade.

Now, it was changed to be a more expensive item that alters attack speed, movement speed, and armor, consisting of Medallion, Ultimate Orb, Windlace, and a recipe

Dota 2 items: Crown

Dota 2 gameplay
If there is a Circlet, there must a Crown.

This is essentially an upgrade which provides 4 to all stats, consuming only one space, unlike two Circlets.

Crown is now the component of items which previously required Bracers, Wraith Bands, or Null Talismans. Since those should not be upgraded anyway as early game items that are already “upgraded.”

Ring of Aquila

Dota 2 gameplay
This item has been so popular, even for Strength or Intelligence Heroes. Yet, its cheap cost seemingly gives a lot early game.

As such, it was now removed from the game, joining Iron Talon and Poor Man’s Shield.

Bracer, Wraith Band, and Null Talisman

Dota 2 update

On the previous meta where dual-lanes and one-on-one mid matchups are prevalent, cheap items. Like these provide the much-needed stats and lane power. Most of the time, players stack these items, similar to what was done in the so-called Dota 1.

It is only imperative for them not to be upgraded anymore since the trajectory is for them to be sold mid-game to late-game anyway. Their prices were also increased because they seem to be too easy to acquire.

Spirit Vessel

Dota 2 update
Since Holy Locket was already introduced, it would be redundant if this item would still have the healing and regeneration amplification.

Mind that the healing and regeneration reduction still exists, and this still a must-buy against Heroes like Alchemist.


Dota 2 gameplay
During the late game, there is no point in gaining “burst” movement from its Flutter. Since it already scales well enough that the movement speed of the user tends to be above 400.

Force Staff

Dota 2 gameplay

With the new Leash mechanic, it is highly beneficial for Heroes like Slark. Since the only choice is for its duration to expire.

Now, Force Staff is able to get a unit out of it. As long as it is from an external source and not the Pounced unit itself.

Gem of True Sight

Dota 2 ranking
There are times during team fights that the Gem gets dropped. The players would have a hard time recovering it from the ground or in the trees.

A small change which allows it to grant a respectable amount of ground. Vision and true sight on the area where it was dropped is much needed.
