Buildings
 
 
 
 
 
 

All buildings grant multiplied gold bounties based on the game's global setting. Bonus gold is only granted to the hero that deals the last hit on a structure.

Towers[edit]

A tower with 4 skills, able to hold Mega Creeps

Towers now have a 400 base experience bounty, of which can be multiplied by the global setting.

Towers may gain random custom abilities when the appropriate game setting is enabled. All tower abilities fully stack with each other.

The tower upgrade splash

Towers may also improve their abilities if the appropriate game setting is enabled. When a tower is destroyed, a splash message visible to all players will appear and a sound is played, indicating that all towers on that team have been upgraded. Each tower that is destroyed increases the tower "level" by one, leveling up their current ability by one. When a destroyed tower causes the abilities to reach level 3, a new skill is learnt by all towers in addition to the first. These skills can level up as well, following the same rules as above. The last tower will have 3 level 3 abilities and 1 level 2 ability.

The first ability of all towers is mirrored by both teams. This means that Dire's Tier 1 Bottom Tower has the same first ability as Radiant's Tier 1 Top Tower. However, subsequently gained skills are not mirrored.

To make achieving the goal of destroying the enemy Ancient harder, Ancients now receive multiple buffs and abilities that trigger when certain criteria are met. Ancients now gain a flat 15 armor bonus at all times, for a total of 30 armor. Ancient health has also been increased to 7000.

When the Ancient is first damaged, Poison Nova is cast. Subsequently, when its health falls;

  • under 80% Overgrowth is cast;
  • under 60% Eye of the Storm is cast and Poison Nova's cooldown is refreshed;
  • under 40% Borrowed Time is cast and Eye of the Storm's cooldown is refreshed;
  • under 30% Ravage is cast and Eye of the Storm's cooldown is refreshed;
  • under 15%, all cooldowns are refreshed. This only occurs once.

Ancients use their abilities when there is an enemy within 600 range, or if they receive an instance of damage from any range.

Fountains[edit]

To prevent fountain camping, each Fountain has a 1400 attack range and flying vision, +100 attack speed, passive Grevious Wounds (a skill similar to Fury Swipes), and every enemy unit in 1800 range is bashed whenever the Fountain attacks. A glowing marker on the floor indicates the range in which the fountain can attack enemy units. Mirana's Shooting Star is not able to enter the enemy fountain.

Fountains also now heal for 5% of max health and mana, an increase from the normal 4%. This would mean one can heal completely within 20 seconds in the Fountain.
