Patch 6.87 brought a lot of new, incredibly fun items to the game. In this article, we will be covering all these items.
Made of Orchid, Crystalys and Recipe, this item will now be the most expensive item in game @7195 gold. The item gives 1.3x critical hit and true to strike on the enemy hero upon which it is casted along with silencing it. The item also has a passive critical chance.The item is quite good on heores like Windrunner and Clinkz who can benefit from both silence and damage from the the item. In my opinion, Bloodthorn is the best item to come out of 6.87.
This item require an oblivion staff and an Ogre club to make. At 2650 gold this item is specially for melee heroes as its passive is that it cause melee attacks to attack twice in succession in 0.6 while applying a 100% MS/AS slow. It has a 5 second cooldown the item seems a rather good one on heroes like Juggernaut and Sven. It gives a feel of pseudo-SnY.
This is a 300 gold item which reduces 2 armor by attack. A neat little item to kill those early tanks. This item is also used in making desolator and medallion of courage so now you can have a –armor item in the early stage of game. Good on heroes like Windrunner, Witchdoctor etc.
At 225 gold this item is one of the most effective item against heavy magical damage lineups early game. It has 5 charges and whenever you receive more than 50 magic damage it repels 120 magic damage while taking up a chage. The item comes with a catch that it can’t be purchased before 3 minutes.
This 225 gold item gives +20 movement speed and is used to make drums and Euls. Having this early game can be the difference between life and death. Good on heroes which can benefit form drums or Euls like Juggernaut and Lina.
Tome of Knowledge:
This is a rather new type of item. This item is a consumable which gives 425 exp. This makes comebacks a little more easier in my opinion. But it has 10 minutes cooldown. Good for all roles. Beware though this can cause outburst among teammates in pub matches.
Now this is my favorite item released in this patch. This item is made of dragon lance, force staff and a recipe. This 4375 gold item works like force staff if casted on allies but when casted on enemy it pushes both the caster and the enemy 450 units each while giving the caster 4 attacks for maximum of 5 seconds duration without any range restriction. Really great on Enchantress because Impetus does damage according to distance travelled by the projectile.
That was our take on the new items from patch 6.87. Hope you guys liked the article. For more info regarding the patch go to http://www.dota2.com/687. To read more on Dota 2, click here.
