The snows have begun to melt, revealing a ton of new features. Destroy your foes with Terrorblade and Phoenix. Rewrite history using the Replay Takeover feature. Mix up your matches in Random Ability Draft, now accessible at level 5 thanks to your feedback. Then check out all the new content in the Dota store, while keeping an eye out for flash sales throughout the event.
As you’re taking it all in, prepare yourself to face the Year Beast. As you play matches you’ll earn Flamesalt Ingots, which are used to purchase the weapons you’ll need to battle the Year Beast when it appears. The more damage you deal, the better your loot will be.
Need more Ingots? Activate Fortune’s Favor to boost the number of Ingots you find after matches, and begin earning Jade Tokens you can redeem for various prizes.
As you can tell, there’s a lot to see and do during the New Bloom Festival. Fun and prizes await, so dive in and discover for yourself everything that’s in store!
Out of the cold and chaos come the very things that the New Bloom Festival is here to celebrate: rebirth and renewal. In this final rush of revelations, a cosmic force arrives to light the skies, while the past itself begs to be rewritten. The New Bloom Festival makes ready!
The New Bloom Update will be available tomorrow.
New life means new chaos. As the Year Beast stirs from its slumber, a much darker presence prepares to unleash itself upon the world of Dota. But the chaos doesn’t end there: every hero, and every power, will feel its impact. The New Bloom Festival approaches!
As the cold days grow longer and the first blooms slowly reach above the snow, powers both benevolent and savage have begun to stir. Discover the first of many developments that the coming renewal will bring to the world of Dota. The New Bloom Festival is about to commence!
