Dota 2 Patch 7.30: Data Miner Reveals Hidden Neutral Items That Were Not Added
Dota 2 patch 7.30 may have had additional content and updates that were not included in the release version. According to u/TheZett on Reddit, the update included seven new neutral items, two new abilities, and changes to the Dagon item that Valve did not include in patch 7.30. Despite the fact that these changes were not reflected in the game, players can still test them out in the Demo mode at the time of writing this article. On 18th Aug 2021, Dota 2 patch 7.30 was released, introducing eight new neutral items and removing seven previous ones, among other changes to hero abilities and items.
New neutral items, spells, and a Dagon buff were unreleased in Dota 2 patch 7.30
The data miner from Reddit found these changes in Dota 2 files, but Valve didn't release them with patch 7.30.
Though these items cannot be used in official games, they are still functional in demo mode. This can be done by typing "-item into the chat followed by the item's internal name."
Here are the eight items along with a brief description of what they do.
Assassin’s Dagger: Passively grants attack speed and deals 30 magic damage to a target on attacking.
Internal name: item_assassins_dagger
Assassin’s Contract: Causes you to lose 5 strength but you can steal gold from enemies.
Internal name: item_sample_picker
Light Robes: Causes you to lose 175 health but grants 35 attack speed. Internal name: item_light_robes
Icarus Wings: Passively grants movement speed. The Active component allows you to have flying vision and flying movement.
Internal name: item_icarus_wings
Ring of Fortitude: The active component allows you to reduce incoming damage by 50% for 3 seconds.
Internal name: item_fortitude_ring
Tree Processor: Passively grants intelligence,bonus movement speed, and HP generation “depending on how many trees you’ve destroyed with its AoE ability.”
Internal name: item_tree_processor
Mechanical Arm: Passively improves attack time and has a chance to deal a mini stun on attacking.
Internal name: item_mechanical_arm
There will still be no stats displayed when these items are spawned in the demo mode.
Spells and Items
Dazzle’s Aghanim’s Scepter - Rain of Vermin
The Dazzle's Aghanim's Scepter was reworked according to the data files and renamed Rain of Vermin. The Scepter provided the hero with a new ground-targeting spell. Over the course of seven seconds, the spell would damage the enemies in that area and also hex them in intervals.
Treant Lifebomb explode
As per the data miner, this ability was either intended for the Mud Golems neutral creeps or the Treants of Nature’s Prophet. The ability causes the unit to inflate massively before exploding and dealing damage around it.
According to the data files, Dagon was supposed to get a buff. In addition to the original Magic Burst, the Dagon would also deal damage based on a value of Intelligence Multiplier at all levels from 1 to 5. Currently, Dagon grants you bonus Intelligence, but it does not deal damage based on your Intelligence.
The decision by Valve not to release certain changes is not new, as previous Dota 2 files have revealed that certain Neutral items were unreleased in the game. One of these unreleased neutral items from a previous patch included the Gloves of Travel, which passively reduced the cooldown of TP scrolls and prevented them from being consumed.
