  • Melee attacks now miss if the target is farther than 350 range more than their attack range
  • Reduced All Pick drafting time from 40 to 35 seconds per turn

  • Damage Block no longer affects physical spells (previously it affected some physical spells and some not):
The following abilities no longer have their damage reduced by Block: Counter Helix, Eye of the Storm, Anchor Smash, Slithereen Crush, Unstable Concoction, Shadow Wave, Entangling Claws, Return, Echo Stomp, Land Mines, Suicide Squad, Attack!

The following are abilities that were previously getting reduced twice as part of the attack instead of just once: Shadow Walk, Vendetta and Meld

As an example reference, here are some of the abilities that were already ignored by Block before: Wild Axes, Exorcism, Acid Spray, Poison Touch, Diabolic Edict and Quill Spray

  • Cast behavior while turning to cast has been adjusted:
Previously if you cast a spell and were already in range, but not facing the target (outside of the small cast angle), your hero would start turning, but not consider that turn as anything beyond normal movement from an order priority perspective. This meant that issuing any order while turning, during that very short threshold window, would not be in the order queue in the same way as once your casting time started.

It now treats your order as the same once you are in cast range.

The effective difference this has is that you can queue your actions in the same way after you click one ability without depending on the angle of cast being 16 degrees or 20 degrees. Previously if you issued the order at the wrong degree, it would completely interrupt the ability, rather than queuing it to do after your existing order finished as is the usual spell casting behavior.

This subtle difference applies most commonly with Blink Dagger, as you could easily accidentally cancel your blink order if you clicked the other ability before you reached the critical angle (since otherwise Blink has 0 cast time).

  • Reworked the Item Silencing and Passive Disabling behaviors:
Item Silencing is called Mute.

Passive Disabling is called Break. Mute disables the ability to cast Items (in 6.83c Doom, Scepter Static Storm, and Hex applied this state)

Break disables the bonuses of passive Abilities only (in 6.83c Scepter Doom and Hex applied this state)

Previously a small portion of passive abilities were disabled by Doom and some others by Hex. The Break mechanic is now responsible for this behavior, and previous passive abilities that Hex/ Doom blocked (not items, abilities) are included in the list of abilities Break disables.

The following additional passive abilities are now added to the list of passives disabled with Break: Aftershock, Counter Helix, Great Cleave, Craggy Exterior, Bash of the Deep, Inner Beast, Dragon Blood, Mortal Strike, Degen Aura, Greevil's Greed, Drunken Brawler, Feral Impulse, Shapeshift's Critical Strike, Chaos Strike, Return, Reactive Armor, Curse of Avernus, Natural Order, Empowering Haste, Spell Shield, Thirst, Marksmanship, Precision Aura, Presence of the Dark Lord, Blade Dance, Coup de Grace, Vengeance Aura, Backstab, Headshot, Take Aim, Psi Blades, Geminate Attack, Lunar Blessing, Moon Glaives, Desolate, Jinada, Geostrike, Essence Shift, Fervor, Arcane Aura, Static Field, Heartstopper Aura, Lua error in Module:Ability_ID at line 61: Could not find Cargo data for "Sadist"., Overload, Fiery Soul, Untouchable, Null Field, Gravekeeper's Cloak, Entangling Claws and Demolish.

Additional Note: Evasion, Damage Block and Critical Strike no longer have special classifications on how they interact with the above. They are only disabled if they match the general rules of the above. For example, Butterfly icon.png Butterfly's evasion is not disabled when you are Hexed/Doomed (Since Break does not affect Items, no different than Platemail icon.png Platemail not being disabled).

  • Silence no longer disables Invisibility
  • Previously it disabled some and not others
  • Tier 2 and 3 towers armor reduced from 25 to 22
  • Runes now have a higher hit box priority over units
  • Armor now shows decimal places in the hover tooltip
  • Fixed buyback respawn timer penalty being reset if you die holding Aegis


  • AoE Bonus Gold component based on Team Net Worth difference reduced by 25%
  • AoE Bonus XP component based on Team XP difference reduced by 40%
  • Reduced the direct hero last hit bounty by 100 and redistributed that gold into AoE gold (in ratio of 100/75/40/25/20 for 1/2/3/4/5 heroes)
  • If you are the only person contributing to a kill, you still get the same gold overall
  • AoE Bonus Gold is now distributed based on the relative net worth amongst the heroes involved in killing the hero by +/- 25%
  • Example: If 3 heroes kill an enemy hero, and the extra AoE bounty would normally be 200 gold for each player, it is instead 200+25% for the poorest hero, 200 for the middle, and 200-25% for the richest
  • The amount of AoE Bonus Gold given is now increased/decreased by up to 20% based on the dying hero’s relative rank in net worth amongst all the enemies on that team.
  • Example: If the total AoE gold would normally have been 600, if the hero dying is the lowest in net worth, the bounty is reduced by 20% giving only 480. If the dying hero is the highest, it is increased by 20%, giving 720
  • Instead of Buyback temporarily preventing unreliable gold gain, it now reduces all gold gained (including hero and AoE gold) by 60%
  • This means that if you buyback when the enemy is pushing and you get a few kills, the amount of gold you get for that, including the networth difference bonus, is reduced by 60%
  • Melee lane creep bounty reduced from 43 to 40 (-7%)
  • Range lane creep bounty reduced from 48 to 45 (-6.25%)
  • Hero kills (the non-net worth portions) are worth 10% more
  • Melee Barracks team bounty increased from 175 to 275
  • Ranged Barracks team bounty increased from 100 to 225
