Winter gloom may shadow the lands, but for those battling over mastery of the lanes and destruction of an Ancient, nothing stops the action. And for the most dedicated, whose mastery is no longer in question, today’s update unveils a new level of greatness — Grandmaster — along with other seasonal updates for Dota Plus.
Dota Plus Grandmaster Tier
Dota Plus members can now level up heroes to a brand-new Grandmaster tier at level 30. In addition to the inherent intimidation factor, players who earn the title of Grandmaster have access to a new chat wheel voice line for that hero. Any hero challenges completed as a Grandmaster will also grant shards as a reward instead of hero XP.
Dota Plus Seasonal Treasure
To accompany the debut of Grandmaster, the Winter 2020 Seasonal Treasure is now available for purchase with shards. Exclusive to Dota Plus members, this treasure features all new sets for Dragon Knight, Puck, Spirit Breaker, Templar Assassin, Earth Spirit, Vengeful Spirit, Luna, Necrophos, Undying, Ember Spirit, and Centaur Warrunner. There’s also a chance to receive the Very Rare Hermid the Crab courier, which comes preloaded with random prismatic and kinetic gems.
Updated Seasonal Quests & Guild Rewards
Today’s update also comes with a new set of Dota Plus quests to haul in some extra shards for the Seasonal Treasure, helping you earn up to 115,200 shards over the course of the season.
Not to be left out, the guild rewards for silver, gold, and platinum tier guilds have been switched out for the season.
