After the release of Dota 2’s Patch 7.32 update, it was discovered that a bug regarding Dark Seer was found.
The bug was recently showcased by DuBu, where a player retains Dark Seer’s Aghanim's Scepter upgrade if the scepter was sold within the first ten seconds of purchase.
The bug might be patched with or after the release of the Battle Pass.

Following the release of Patch 7.32 update, players and streamers alike have been thinking of new strategies to give them an edge in matches. However, it was recently discovered that players have found a bug to retain Dark Seer’s Aghanim's Scepter ability upgrade. The discovery of the bug caused players to have an economic advantage, as players retain the full refund price of Aghanim's Scepter as well retaining the ability upgrade on Dark Seer.

Kim "DuBu" Doo-young, TSM’s support player recently encountered the bug on his livestream on Twitch and was dumbfounded before trying out the bug on Dark Seer himself.

Dark Seer’s Aghanim Scepter Bug Discovered as DuBu Tested It On Stream

Following the release of Patch 7.32 update, players and streamers alike have been thinking of new strategies to give them an edge in matches. However, it was recently discovered that players have been exploiting a bug to retain Dark Seer’s Aghanim's Scepter ability upgrade, where the ability “Normal Punch” will be permanently retained by the player if they sold the item, Aghanim's Scepter within the first ten seconds of purchase. This would be a game-breaking bug, as it allows a player to not only retain the scepter’s ability, but also allows them to regain a full refund which could be used to purchase other items.

During his livestream on Twitch, DuBu discovered that one of the players in his previous matches was abusing a bug on Dark Seer, where the player would purchase Aghanim’s Scepter and immediately sell it within the first 10 seconds. In return, the player would have Dark Seer’s Normal Punch ability on a permanent basis despite the game not showing the ability on the player’s HUD (Heads-Up Display).

At first, DuBu was dumbfounded as he thought the player had bought Aghanim's Blessing, which is an upgraded version of the scepter where it no longer requires an item slot and still provides any buffs from the scepter to be permanent. However, upon discovering the bug DuBu took things into his own hands as he attempted to see if the bug was actually there.

DuBu, following the steps that he witnessed from the previous match, tried out the method. He was shocked as he witnessed that the bug is actually real, before laughing in disbelief and calling the bug broken.

Despite Valve releasing a small update earlier today, it seems that the Dota 2 developers might have missed out on the bug. Following the release of Patch 7:32b update earlier this week, players might get innovative and try to find new ways to exploit bugs within the game before it gets patched as the Battle Pass will be released to the public tomorrow, along with some minor hotfixes.
