Dota Allstars 6.64 Map Download Updates

Posted by drew on October 7th, 2009 |

IceFrog has begun working on the Dota 6.64 map update about two weeks ago, and in a recent statement he said that the 6.64 update will focus on balance improvements. In an older article dated September 23rd, he mentioned a bug with Phase Boots:

However, we found out that there is a technical issue with Phase Boots. They seem to prevent procs like crits, bashes, etc while phased. It was never as apparent before because it was not coupled with attack speed. This makes the Phase Boots a bit anti-synergetic.

A workaround was underway and he is playing around with different versions of Phase Boots and Power Treads:

Phase Boots:
Boots of Speed (500)
2x Blades of Attack (1000)
Recipe (none)
Total: 1500

+70 Movement Speed
+26 Damage
Phase (Active)

Power Treads:
Boots of Speed (500)
Boots of Elvenskin or Belt of Giant Strength or Robe of the Magi (450)
Gloves of Haste (500)
Recipe (none)
Total: 1450

+60 MS
+10 Any Attribute
+30 IAS

While he notes:

While there may be workarounds for that bug, most would probably come at the cost of some functionality. So while still keeping with the primary no armor concept, I am exploring a new buildup for Phase Boots and Power Treads. Keep in mind that numbers are still at an early stage and this change is by no means final, but I’d like to share one version of what we are experimenting with.

While Dota 6.64 will contain mostly fixes, IceFrog hinted new remakes and heroes in version 6.65.

    @Ghost well not really. The damage is pretty useless for heroes like SS, Lion, Enigma. The armor was the second most importantpart of Phase boots imo. taking that away drastically reduced EHP. The old Phase and Treads was the perfect balanace.

    @ghost – ofcourse lol.. but that’s because phase and treads both got nerfed.. imo.. I prefer the old phase… casters won’t need too much damage.. they love some armor though :(
