Dota 2 Patch 7.29 Notes: Terrain, Rune, and Gameplay changes

Valve is introducing Water Power rune. It will spawn at both power run locations at the 2 & 4-minute mark. It provides 100 health and 80 mana and can be used to refill bottles. The power runes will start spawning from minute 6.

Now, controlling 2 outposts does not give your extra XP. Also, the outposts give XPM now rather than every 10-minute mark.

Another interesting thing to note is that Bounty runes will spawn even if the old one is not picked up. The new Bounty rune will spawn right next to the old one.

Also, players will have only 1 TP when the game begins. You will gain a TP every time you die in the Game.

These are the Gameplay changes. Keep watching this space for the hero changes which are important.
