7.22 patch winners (Part 2)

We couldn’t cover all the heroes in one article so let’s have a further look at the buffed heroes of 7.22.

Faceless Void

Void receives a +3 boost in his strength gain. His level 10 talent will now +12 strength instead of +10. On level 15 Time Walk cooldown reduction has been improved from -1 to -1.5. Lastly on level 20 the attack speed has been bosted from +40 to +45.

We didn’t get much fancy changes for the  Void. All we got are some decent buffs, which could make him able to get more farm faster. In the pro games, OG’s Ana and PSG.LGD’s Ame showed that Void is a very good pick now. We expect the hero to be a very popular pick not just at the TI9 but in the upcoming ESL Birmingham 2019 and the Starladder Minor.


Valve has increased the base damage of the hero by 3. They also reduced the Exort attack damage per instance. In the talent tree department, the contact damage of Chaos Meteor has been increased by 10. Lastly at level 20, Alacrity damage has also been give a +10 buff.

The increase in base damage will correlate well with the damage reduction to Exort. Yet this is only a problem, if you are playing the EEE invoker. Yet for all other builds the damage output of the hero has been increased. Meanwhile, the buff to Alacrity and Chaos Meteor mans that the Exort invoker may very well make its way back to the pro scene.

Io and Mars

Io and Mars are in the winners category just by their addition to the Captains Mode. Since they are coming to the pro scene without getting any nerfs. This is a huge plus point for Io. At the same time both of them get Scepter upgrades which might be more of a situational pick. We believe that in the next few tournaments, we are likely to see the duo getting banned in the first phase of the drafts.

Keeper of the Light

The 7.22 Scepter upgrade enables Kotl to Illuminate without the need of channeling. It still provides the same heal bonus, which is a big buff. You can now cast Chakra Magic one the enemies, forcing them to lose their mana on movement and it lasts for 5 seconds.

In the 7.22 Aghs on Kotl was quite useless yet it was still picked by the players. So the no channeling will make the item useful again on the hero. The hero can also pick it from Roshan so it means that you won’t have to spend long time farming the item. We also suggest that Kotl is now an incredible pick if you are not playing against Night Stalker. Since you can easily push the without without the changeling time.

The Chakra Magic is similar to the Mana Leak ability of the old days. But on testing we conclude it is not as effective, yet it is a great tool to harass the likes of Medusa and Wraith King.
