Dota 6.78 official map update has been released just a few hours ago by IceFrog, the original DotA founder himself.

With this patch you can expect a couple of new heroes and several balance changes.

Here is an excerpt from the changelog:

When the blight of the Scourge threatened the isolated peak villages of the Crag Lands, their pleas for aid went unanswered.

The strong villagers climbing ever higher up the mountains to seek refuge, leaving those too young or old to their fates.

When the forces of evil fed upon the helpless, their innocent blood wet the stones of the foothills. Seeing this, the heart of the mountains wept, and forged it’s own champion to face off against the teeming hordes.

Hewed from the cliff face, Kaolin was born into our world. Wielding the strength of the mountain, he bends stone and metal to his fierce will.

DotA v6.77b AI 1.4

OFFICIAL map DotA v6.77b AI 1.4.w3x (DOOMSDAY) by PleaseBugMeNot (March 11, 2013)

Here we are again with this fine AI map release, thanks to the countless hours of developing time contributed by the AITeam members. This release is having some heavy tweaks to the items system + AI`s having their own courier to bring them the goods. The new heroes got their AI too and the biggest news from the team are… our new developer – Ciel_Asuka. Blending well and adjusting to the script, Ciel will make us all happy.

Also, we sent Green_Sliche to talk with the AIs in person and get their item preferences on list. He did not also bring them to us… but he used his time there to teach the AIs using some of the new and old items.. which they didn’t use yet. With fewer words: Green made all the item builds

Why DOOMSDAY you will ask? Well, we had that 12.12.12 date, when we would all die from horrible events… and we were in so so great danger that the AITeam decided that we should celebrate the death avoidance during the whole 2013. So.. that`s the reason.

Enjoy DotA v6.77b AI 1.4, codenamed DOOMSDAY!

From The_Artful (member of PlayDota forum) ask Icefrog:
Dear Ice frog you have mentioned that 6.78 is comming soon and I wanted to point out some of the “cream of the crop” from the forums over the last few months. So in not particular order:

Phantom Assassin:-Adding caustic farming mechanic method 1, and method 2 (a little op)
-Cosmetic change to PA blink strike

Phantom Lancer:-Situation Nerf/buff to Spirit Lance(numbers need work).

Treant Protector:
-Leach seed + Tree in the forest

-Goblin’s Greed situation nerf/buff

Crystal Maiden:
-Frostbite doubles as ghost sceptor + “Telepad”

Poof w/ combat “perks” method 1 (simple), method 2 (complex, but interesting)

-Added utility of Lightning Bolt

Nerubian Assassin:
-Spiked carapace +1 skill required

-Now useful 2/3 of the fight.
-fish oil +1

-Culling Blade scaling late

Well, let’s hope we’ll get some nice changes here and there!
