Good things come in multiples. Further fixes include:

  • Minor updates to Jakiro's new model.

March 16 - Post-Legacy patch

Minor tweaks always flood in after a major gameplay update. This time:

  • Added tooltip modifiers for towers to indicate their new armor change from 7.03.
  • Fixed the magic resistance of Hood of Defiance not being updated to 7.03 change correctly.
  • Fixed the scroll bar not being on the correct side on the combat log when the HUD is flipped.

Usual Reddit thread has more details.

March 15 - The Bladeform Legacy

Ho boy, that's a big one, large enough that patch 7.03 - Bladeform Legacy - has its own post. Some more details over on Reddit.

March 13 - Unranked patch

Dota 2 Heroes Roster

Teeny-tiny patch to switch unranked pick orders to be the same as ranked. It's important to someone, so it's here:

  • Unranked All Pick now uses the same picking order as Ranked.
  • Performance improved when using Monkey King’s Wukong's Command, especially for players with high ping.
  • Performance improved when spawning Illusions.

Those latter two are rather important as well, particularly considering Monkey King's upcoming introducting to Captain's Mode. Here's the usual Reddit thread.

March 8 - Rapier patch

Just the one gameplay change, and more of a bugfix really, along with some other bits:

  • Rapier can no longer be disassembled
  • The Kiev Major is now the featured tournament. You can find it at Watch > Featured.
  • Minor Tweak to Lycan face texture.

Some details and all the changes in the usual Reddit thread.

Those are the last five Dota 2 patches - more are always on the way. We'll update when Valve do.
