Dota 2 update: Ulfsaar awakes

ImageThursday means Dota 2 update, Ursa joins the Hero pool.

As usual Valve comes up with bugs and balance fixes and is also adding a new Hero to the pool, Ulfsaar the Warrior formerly known as Ursa. While barely used in professional games, he sure has the potential to pubstomp anyone on his path. The main problem for Ulfsaar is his lack of a gapcloser which is also the reason a lot of people end up buying Lothar's edge and prefer sneaking up behind people ripping them apart. If you want to take out Roshan very fast, pick this guy.

Besides adding Ulfsaar, the update also brings the Suggested Item Editor where you can customize your own builds when you play so you can buy your items even faster. Because of Steam Cloud you can change this whenever and wherever you want.

When throwing a quick glance to the changelog, my eyes fell on:

" - Buying an item while dead no longer puts it in the main inventory. Fixes an exploit of buying items while dead with Aegis or as Skeleton King and respawning with the item."

" - We now allow courier to purchase items away from base (they go into the stash)."


Besides fixing the annoying game changer, the courier purchase of items away from base have finally been taken care off. I'm sure I'm not the only one who ended up with an empty courier because your item ended up in your stash as someone else was using the courier.

Here's part of the changelog:
