Dota 2 weekly roundup: Luna and Wisp out, hero tutorials now included


One of the heroes glaringly missing from Dota 2‘s initial batch of heroes was Luna, the agility hero whose Luna Beams were a fearsome sight for any foe. Dota 2 players will have to wait no more to inflict her wrath as the latest update has added Luna, alongside Wisp, to the game.

It will be also interesting to see if any competitive teams plan to utilise this new option for the upcoming International Championships.

Aside from that, Valve has added a Heropedia to the Learn tab in the game client. The Heropedia contains more details and video tutorials for the heroes’ skills, allowing players to understand how each skill actually functions. Definitely helpful for any new player.
