That is no secret that Valve transfer all heroes from Dota in Dota 2. The point in this process put Underlord. It would be difficult to find ideas for the further expansion of the list of characters, but at the last TI6 Valve announced the Monkey King, than surely have pleased fans of the game.
New heroes in Dota 2
All you have repeatedly heard about the Monkey King, and maybe even familiar with its history, so it makes no sense to repeat. An interesting point is that the Monkey King is the owner of the very Monkey King Bar – the well-known artifact of DOTA 2. What is interesting in it? Perhaps in this way Valve reveal the principle that new characters will be added to DOTA 2. There is a probability that they, like Monkey King, will be taken from the lore of DOTA, which, incidentally, very well established. It contains references to various mythologies, the cult and the history of the world of Warcraft.
Tarrasque – French dragon
The character of a famous French mythology, which is based on one of the most expensive items in DotA Heart of Tarrasque. According to legend, a dragon lived on the banks of the Rhone, near the village of Nerluk. Now this place is called Tarrascon, in honor of the dragon itself. The beast devoured animals and humans; especially it like the taste of a virgin. Residents of Nerluka have sought to overcome Tarrasque, but they can not.
Tarasque looked like half-animal, half-fish, exceeds in thickness – bull, in length – horse. His teeth were like a sword blade, sharpened on both sides, and there were sharp like horns. On each side, he was armed with a double round shields. He was hiding in the river and kill all who try to pass it and drowned ships.
Skadi – guest from Nordic mythology, was the patroness of hunting. Originally she was probably a fertility goddess in its winter incarnation. Skadi is winter and ice, is the wife of Njord. As you might have guessed, that to he refers artifact Eye of Skadi.
According to Scandinavian mythology, when the Æsir (in Nordic mythology, a core group of gods and goddesses) killed her father Pjazi, Skadi armed and went to avenge him in Asgard. However aces offered to Skadi as a ransom for his father to choose one of the gods as her husband. She agreed, but only if they set off laughing her. After reconciliation Odin (Supreme God) took Thiassi eyes and threw them into the sky, creating the stars of them; so between Skadi and aces became peace. It was she who helped to Scandinavian gods conclude Loki by putting on him a snake, that exuding poison.
Perhaps you did not know, but Aghanim’s Scepter, which can be collected are now by almost all the heroes of DotA was named in honor of this great dark wizard that serves as an antagonist in the game A Link To The Past (it is possible to play it on SEGA). In addition, it is believed that he is a father of the hero, who is in DotA for a long time – Rubick.
Many heroes have specially prepared phrases that they pronounce with the purchase of this scepter. I wonder what they will say, if they met the greatest magician, part of the power that they use. If developers will continue to add new aghanims in the game, then it is very likely that we will see that character.
