    Yeah. Finally after a year without any updated he brought most of the new changes in Dota2 to wc3. Sadly he didn't fix nor adjust anything that isn't in dota2 yet. Again.

    There is a second wave of tickets going on sale later.

    Also, me and 1112e had our threads up within 30 seconds of each other, ASCI made his like 10 mins after both of us. Clearly didn't even bother checking.

    Manta Style, it is literally the perfect item on him on basically every respect.

    It's a massive powerspike from the 26 agility and the illusions combined with your Metamorphosis, plus your illusion DPS with just one conjure image doubles, or even triples if you have both conjure image illusions and manta illusions.
    The 10 strength, 10 intelligence, and movespeed also do a lot for TB and his chasing and survivability.

    It brings your ability to fight people online, it brings your ability to rat online, and the only thing you need afterwards to go into teamfights safely is Eye of Skadi.

    That whole chest is pretty good actually, which is a shocker since more than half the sets in the last few have been crap.

    Only a slight coloured glow on the face, nothing extraordinary.

    Oh well.

    I'd personally like it if I could use the default Metamorphosis over the cosmetic ones, I don't particularly like either of them.

    Thank you for doing that by the way.

    This is actually a problem with the importer itself. It doesn't add the necessary material proxies for the demonform to tint with the arcana.

    Damn, I want that set, replaces the default blades I despise and looks sexy with the arcana.
    Wish TB wasn't nerfed so much, I enjoyed playing him when he got ported, then he got popular and every nerf made me like him a lot less

    Played my first real game as Woiven (had one during the year beast bullshit) and damn, she is a real fun hero to play. Strong as well. Blink near grouped enemies and that's a big ult, especially after you get refresher.

    i REALLY miss when chests dropped singular items instead of entire sets

    there were so many cool single items that were made with all of the author's focus, but now we have entire sets that struggle to make the hero look different but still stay inside the theme of the hero
