Top 5 winners of Dota 2 Patch 7.29b
The heroes on this list are in no particular order. All of these heroes have equal merits & unique positives. However, some of these heroes are easier to play, picked more often, and have better win rates than their counterparts.
1. Faceless Void
The recent changes to Faceless Void, especially the buff to Time Dilation, along with the changes in the talent tree is what makes Faceless Void the winner of this patch. With these changes, the playstyle of the hero has become different. With a lot of extra health which can be picked up by choosing the Strenght & +health talent at 10 & 15, Faceless Void is the undisputed winner of Patch 7.29b.
2. Drow Ranger
Drow Ranger’s Shard which debuffs enemies hit by her frost arrows is very useful, especially against tanky off-laners like Bristleback and Tidehunter.
3. Death Prophet
While Death Prophet never really fell off the meta-list, the latest changes make DP a very powerful hero. The reason she comes third is that the buff is only to her Crypt Swarm and that too, only at the final level of the skill.
Dazzle is also on this list due to one reason: Aghanim’s Shard. Poison Touch now hexes enemies for 1.5 seconds apart from the original slowing debuff.
Necrophos has suddenly come back into the limelight with Patch 7.29b. Although he doesn’t offer much AoE control in teamfights, Necrophos is one of the best heroes to tank against enemies who are hard to lockdown.
