Oracle has come to let you seize the fates of both friend and foe. Weave your power into a harmful bolt that stops your enemies and removes helpful auras. Or render an ally resistant to harmful magics. Combine either approach with your double-edged purifying flames, and you'll have all you need to aid or destroy. Still in danger? Delay an ally's doom with a false promise, and give them the time needed to see their destiny to its fullest. As Oracle, the future is always in your hands.
FORTUNE'S END – Channel power into a bolt of scouring energy that stops and removes buffs from enemies.
FATE'S EDICT – Briefly render a target immune to magic damage, while boosting all damage from other sources and removing their ability to attack.
PURIFYING FLAMES – Instantly burn a friend or foe, then heal them slowly over time.
FALSE PROMISE – Grant an ally invisibility while moving and attacking. Any damage or healing they receive will be delayed until the spell ends.
With a raspy cackle, the elder smith Craler swung the sword that his family had spent eleven generations to fold and forge. So sharp it was that, with a sound like tearing fabric, a rip in reality tore open. Through this rip, Craler recognized himself from moments before, holding aloft the very same coveted blade. Then, in a fit of greed and madness, he cut this earlier self down to seize the twin sword as his own. Too late, however, Craler felt a familiar wound, and was suddenly filled with the memory of being cut down himself...

Oracle peers into the future. Do you share his skill at foresight? Use a Charm of the Defender's Vision at the beginning of an All Pick match to predict that your team will emerge victorious.
Three correct victory predictions will transform your charm into a Treasure of the Defender's Vision. Make two incorrect predictions and you'll receive a Charming Celebration action item instead, primed with three uses.
The Charm of the Defender's Vision is only available for purchase during the Nemesis Assassin Event. Predict wisely!
Emboldened by the destruction of enemy structures, the Ancients have long had the ability to transform their creeps into larger, more imposing warriors to push even further into enemy strongholds. But a new transformation is afoot. Now the Dire creeps become more dire, the Radiant more radiant, each kind taking on architectural characteristics of their Ancient's fortifications. When the end is nigh, your creep waves will bring death to your enemy's doorstep.
Those who purchased this year's Compendium for The International have a new way to display their heroism! Heroic Effigies are a new customization feature allowing players to sculpt their favorite hero, along with any items they have equipped, into a statue for their team's base.
To craft an Effigy, first grab your Effigy Block of Triumph, and then use it to open the Sculptor menu and begin posing your hero. After you've set your statue's equipment, pose, and written your inscription, you're ready to create your Effigy.
Once equipped from your loadout, your Heroic Effigy will appear in your team's base for all to see.
