It changes everything, but it doesn’t change Dota 2

Natural Talent

After playing it for a while, as Merlini said in his brief video, the big changes are three: Talents, Backpack, and the minor reworks on items and heroes overall.

With the Backpack, you could have your Skadi, Desolator, Abyssal Blade, and Refresher Orb ready to be activated (in six seconds), something that sure Warcraft 3 players never though that could be possible.

Backpack, Hero and items reworks reinforces this idea. Backpack allows for more Items in a hero, so a 9-slotted unit around the map gives more flexibility. Some “Unique Attack Modifiers” dropped allows for more Item combinations. So you could go for Skadi + Desolator instead of just Abyssal Blade. With the back back, you could have your Skadi, Desolator, Abyssal Blade, and Refresher Orb ready to be activated (in six seconds), something that sure Warcraft 3 players never though that could be possible.
