A Hero Needs a Quest

Winter Season Quests
Prior to each game, choose one of three Paths to determine your current objective. Complete the assignment and win the match to earn Battle Points and move to the next Quest. Earn enough Battle Points and you'll find your treasure stash comfortably full for the winter months to come.
Choose Your Path
Each Path will present challenges relevant to the chosen role. Give your allies a tactical edge as the cunning Support, crush your enemies and rally your teammates as the unwavering Carry, or strike out alone to direct the flow of battle to your team's favor as the daring Solo. You can change your selection during the picking phase to match the needs of each game.
Each PATH Offers a Unique Completion Reward
The final Quest of each Path will unlock a related Completion Reward unique to that Path, each of which can also receive a Community Unlock style upgrade as more players progress through the Paths.
Community Goal
unlock a new style for your reward
As more Battle Pass owners advance along their Paths, the Community Goal progress bars will fill. Once a bar is full, the new Community Unlock will become available to all players who have completed that Path.

Winter Wagering

PLACE YOUR BETS
Each week you will receive a balance of Tokens to use in the wagering system. Place a wager and back it up with a victory to earn additional Battle Points.

But choose wisely, for while victory will grant double your wager in Battle Points, defeat will deposit your ante evenly into the hands of your enemies.
Here's how it works:

1.

Get Weekly Tokens
Each week you will receive an allowance of 1,000 Tokens to wager on your games. Unspent Tokens will not roll over to the following week's balance, so lay them on the line!

2.

Wager Tokens
Once in game, determine your wager amount within the 30-second wagering period.

3.

Win Battle Points
Achieve victory to receive double your wagered amount as Battle Points. The balance of the losing team's wagers will be split evenly amongst the victors as Battle Points.

4.

Level Up
Each Token won converts to one Battle Point to be applied to your current Battle Level.
Tipping -
Something for the Effort
After destroying the enemy Ancient, reward a resourceful teammate or crafty opponent with some of your winnings, mindful that the distinguished warrior is gracious in both victory and defeat.

Winter Achievements

MORE POINTS FOR THE CAUSE
As you embark upon winter Quests and accumulate victories, you can gain additional points to raise your Battle Level by completing any number of Winter Achievements. Learn more on the Achievements tab of your Battle Pass.

Battle Pass Winter Access

No matter what your Battle Level is, there are several exclusive features available to all Battle Pass owners for the duration of the Winter season.
SEASONAL TERRAIN - WINTER
Behold the beauty of the pristine snows settled upon the battlefield. Then unlock your inner battle artist and splatter the blood of your enemies across that white canvas on your march to victory. This exclusive frosty terrain is accessible to all Battle Pass owners, and will be available until your Battle Pass expires.
Frost Creeps Forward
Trudging through snow drifts and frozen rivers, frostbite is bound to set in. With no winter garb to keep them warm, the Radiant, Dire, and neutral creeps find the touch of frost impossible to keep at bay!
BATTLE PASS REPLAYS
As a service exclusive to the Battle Pass, replays for any matches you play with your Battle Pass active will be available to download for three months instead of the standard ten days.
