Which do you want first? The good news or the bad news? I take it you've already read the headline of this post so I'll get straight to it - No, Skywrath Mage is not included in this week's Dota 2 update like everybody was expecting. Unlike the past few weeks, a major new feature or improvement also remains to be seen, with this update focusing primarily on gameplay bug fixes and slight UI improvements. Additionally, in-game music will now play for spectators and replay viewers. Exciting times, ladies and gentlemen.
On a more serious note - Leshrac, Rubick, Bounty Hunter and Windrunner all received brand new cosmetic item sets alongside the release of the "Fiery Soul of the Slayer" item for Lina. When equipped, this new headpiece changes Lina's appearance to make her look similar to the initial artwork which was released parallel to the announcement of Dota 2 back in 2010. Here's hoping next week's update will be a lot more exciting, with perhaps the addition of a new hero or gameplay feature. gl hf, as always.
