Dota 2 Patch 7.33 Item Updates

Dota 2 patch 7.33 The New Frontiers features a massive update for Dota 2 in almost a year. In this 7.33 patch, they update a lot of items that exist in the game. Especially for the Black King Bar’s Avatar active and Spell Immunity mechanic.

While some items are removed from the game, including Hood of Defiance, Tome of Knowledge, and our beloved Wraith Pack.

But before we start with New Items, one of the most important in the Dota 2 patch 7.33 update is the Black King Bar rework.

Black King Bar Reworked

Avatar (Black King Bar active) is Reworked: Applies a basic dispel. Provides Debuff Immunity for the duration: any negative effect on the user won’t affect them, Magic Resistance increased by 50% and they’re immune to pure and reflected damage.

These only affect spells that don’t pierce Debuff Immunity
If Avatar expires before the debuff then it will take effect for the remaining duration

Debuff Immunity is different from the old Spell Immunity in three major ways: spell application, debuff protection, and damage reduction.

Spell application: All spells can now be used on units with Debuff Immunity, even ones that don’t pierce Debuff Immunity. Corresponding visual effects will appear and the spell will apply all of it’s debuffs on target

Debuff protection: Negative effects that don’t pierce Debuff Immunity will not have an effect on the target for the duration of the immunity. However, if the Debuff Immunity expires before the debuff that doesn’t pierce it, then it will take effect for the remaining duration. Negative effects that pierce Debuff Immunity take effect immediately

Damage reduction: Debuff Immunity increases Magic Resistance and negates Pure and Reflected damage completely. These effects protect only against spells that don’t pierce the Debuff Immunity. Physical Damage is not reduced in any case.

Consumable Items & Support

Enchanted Mango, Clarity, and Healing Salve: Each of these items now have an initial and max stock of 4 and a restock time of 120s

The area lasts 12 seconds. Debuff lingers on enemy heroes for 8 additional seconds after they leave the area of effect
