Dota 2 Commences the Ascension Saga with the Crownfall Patch

Share This Post

The new Dota 2 update, titled “The Crownfall,” has finally arrived, bringing with it a host of new experiences beyond the core game, along with the highly anticipated Arcana. While the elusive Ring Master remains elusive, the expanded lore surrounding Dota’s beloved heroes promises a delightful treat for old fans.

Dubbed as “The Market of Midgate,” today’s update marks the inception of the Ascension saga, comprising four thrilling acts, with subsequent chapters set to unfold in the months ahead. This installment boasts a plethora of rewards, mini-games, and side quests, setting it apart from previous events.

At the heart of the Crownfall update lies an enthralling adventure centered around the narrative of Ascension Day. Players will guide the newly empowered Vengeful Spirit and Skywrath Mage through the Overworld, navigating obstacles to reclaim the throne.

To progress through the quest, players must unlock paths using tokens, earned by simply engaging in Dota matches with required heroes. While most heroes bestow multiple tokens across various categories, others offer double the rewards within the same category.

Each cleared pathway yields valuable shop coins, redeemable for discounts on Crownfall Store purchases. Additionally, there are candies up for grabs, exchangeable for randomized sets, and two treasure chests which housing a total of 25 unique items for collection.

And finally, the update unveils two exclusive Arcanas for Vengeful Spirit and Skywrath Mage, complete with revamped models, animations, effects, and immersive lore-infused voice lines. While each Arcana priced at $35 USD, players can unlock discounts by completing the minigame.

Despite lingering desires for substantial updates, especially since the unveiling of Ring Master at the International 12 over five months ago, Crownfall offers a welcome respite. With its myriad of entertaining bits, it serves as a refreshing departure from the rigors of competitive play. Moreover, the influx of new cosmetic offerings proves a delightful addition, filling the void left by the absence of the Battle Pass.

After some consideration (and a bit of fan pushback), Valve has brought back the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) 2021-2022 Regional Finals! However, with the Omicron variant lingering, the DPC 2021-2022 season will look slightly different. These changes will trickle down into the lead up to The International 11 (TI11), but they’re happening nonetheless.
