Dota 2 s newest hero, revealed overnight, is Grimstroke and he is playable right now. Another hero, Mars, will come later this winter.
Grimstroke is a support / disabler type with varied attack capabilities. He is part of a demonic artist, with four abilities that have brush / ink motifs.
- Stroke of Fate is a shot of ink that is making ever worse damage to every enemy it hits while lowering anything it hits.
- Phantom Embrace launches an inky ghost on the target that seizes the enemy, drains and damages it. If the phantom survives the duration of that grip, the victim takes a lot of damage, the phantom goes back to Grimstroke and updates the ability of the chill.
- Ink suction covers Grimstroke or an allied in ink, which puts them, giving them bonuses and immunity to attack. The ability ends that ink explodes, stunner and delivers damage to enemies nearby.
- Soulbind, binds an enemy to the nearest Allies within range. Then, some spells on any of these enemies affect both. The bond can be destroyed, but it means that the originally targeted enemy will be bound to the nearest nearest ally within range.
In Dota 2 s lore, "Grimstroke" was prepared from a young age to become a guardian of his people. "But" Grimstrokes road to power was instead built on a victim he was too willing to do: the life of his entire race. "So the phantom and the ink in his abilities are" inky revenants "who were his people. Muahahahahaha.
Mars leads the video with a short teaser and nothing is known to him except he seems to be able to call soldiers for to fight with him.
Grimstroke's announcement coincides with today's final in The International 201
