The 7.33 New Frontiers patch for Dota 2 has brought numerous changes to the game, including new objectives, modifications to the map, and adjustments to several heroes. With every patch, there's usually something that developers forget to mention in the patch notes. In this case, players were surprised to discover a new item in the game, the ‘Block of Cheese’, which was not mentioned in the patch notes. Additionally, there were buffs to Enchantress, specifically the Impetus skill, that were also not mentioned in the patch notes.

Obtaining the Block of Cheese

Lotus Pools were introduced in the new patch as objectives in the form of a fountain near the safelane of each side. The fruits that spawn from the Lotus Pools can be collected by players and are required to obtain the Block of Cheese. It requires players to collect three Healing Lotuses from the Lotus Pools, which can be combined into a Great Healing Lotus, and two Great Healing Lotuses can be combined to create a Greater Healing Lotus. In order to create the Block of Cheese, players need to collect three Greater Healing Lotuses and have a Cheese in their inventory.

In total players would require a total of 18 Healing Lotuses to get the required number of resources to obtain the Block of Cheese. This can be a daunting task as only one Healing Lotus spawns every 3 minutes at each Lotus Pool. Players would be required to collect them over time until they get a Cheese. However, the overall benefits in the form of a permanent 500 damage-absorbing shield may be worth the trouble that players go through.

Enchantress Buffs

In addition to the Block of Cheese, the 7.33 patch has also introduced a significant buff to Enchantress's Impetus skill that was not included in the patch. Initially, the skill dealt damage equal to 8%/12%/16%/20% of the distance that the auto-attack travels before hitting the enemy. However, with the new patch, the damage has been increased to 10%/15%/20%/25%, making Enchantress a more formidable hero in the early and late game. These hidden buffs and items add an extra layer of excitement to the game, as players continue to discover new items and skills in every match.
