Dota 2's balance has shifted. This small gameplay update includes new tricks for old friends, and a handful of helpful adjustments to augment your strategies. Want to learn more? You'll find the changelog further down the page.
Winter's grip has tightened, causing the river to ice over as deepening snow settles upon the forest paths. Yet the battle rages on! Heroes must now brave the bitter cold of day, and the freezing dark of night. Each ice-tipped tower that shatters, every shivering creep that dies on the field, becomes another step toward victory.
Raise a cheer for the victors of Season 2 of Fantasy Dota. Those who placed 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in Season 2 of their Fantasy Dota league will find a new teleport effect and trophy to show off to their friends. Well played!
Keep your heroes warm this winter with new armor for Luna, Sniper, Legion Commander, Drow Ranger, and Shadow Shaman. Open a Treasure of the Frosted Flame, and you'll also have a chance to find a new set for Tiny, or a rare Hexgill the Lane Shark courier inside!
It's a treasure that contains treasures! Open a Treasure of the Nested Cache, and you'll receive a random treasure, and have a chance to earn a special gift. You might even find a Treasure Redemption Token inside, which can be redeemed for another treasure of your choosing. It's the gift that keeps on giving.
Create a frosty monument to your favorite heroes with a new material for Heroic Effigies! Available from the Dota Store, the Effigy Block of Frost can be used to design a frozen sculpture in your base for all to see. We're also enabling new animations for the creation of Effigies, which can be used with all materials.
Tis the Season of Givening! Purchase Gift Wrap from the Dota Store, then use it on any bundle, courier, or wearable item to create a present for your favorite fellow warrior.

Gift Wrap will be available on the Dota Store until January 12th, 2015.
