A new update has hit the test client for Valve's free-to-play title Dota 2, bringing with it a new addition to the hero ranks; the Elder Titan.
The one we know as the Elder Titan was a great innovator, one who studied at the forge of creation. In honing his skills, he shattered something that could never be repaired, only thrown aside. He fell into his own broken world, a shattered soul himself. There he dwelt among the jagged shards and fissured planes, along with other lost fragments that had sifted down through the cracks in the early universe. And this is why the world we know resembles an isle of castaways, survivors of a wreck now long forgotten. Forgotten, that is, by all but the One who blames himself. He spends his time forever seeking a way to accomplish the repairs, that he might rejoin the parts of his broken soul, that we and the world alike might all be mended. This is the One we know as Elder Titan.
The Elder Titan's abilities are quite interesting in that the use of his summonable Ancestral Spirit will play a large part in damaging and initiating fights. Using the Echo Stomp ability (Q) both yourself and your spirit will stomp the ground, damaging and knocking nearby enemy units unconscious around their locations but also causing physical damage through Elder Titan and magical damage through the spirit. The Ancestral Spirit ability (W) will allow you to use your controllable spirit to dart through enemies, causing damage to anyone it touches. The twist? Elder Titan gains "bonus damage and movement speed for each unit it damaged."

The Elder Titan is also able to reduce nearby enemy units' base armor and magic resistance with the Natural Order ability (E), which coupled with the Echo Stomp will be a deadly combo. To finish things off Elder Titan can activate his Earth Splitter ultimate (R), causing a jagged crack to spread in front that will explode after three seconds slowing enemies while dealing damage based on the maximum life of units caught in the area.

For more on Elder Titan, you can swing by his Wiki page for a look at recommended items and suggestions on play. You can also check out the full patch notes for the test client over here, which include several UI changes including revisions to the Community page.

Yeah it's particularly interesting, will have to see if that includes minions or just heroes. Sounds like my kind of guy though.

I remember playing DOTA back in the day and watching a abbadon tower dive past tier 3 real early game using his ult to heal as he chased down the enemy for first blood. Nothing special now that i know better but back then i thought it was epic.

Whats also surprising is how many heroes have been added that i dont remember from DOTA 1. My memory is pretty foggy but i did play it a bit and think 1 of the newest heroes released around the time i stopped playing was that zombie dude that spawned mini zombies. Maybe he is the current undying but back then he was very different and was originally INT i think then was changed to STR with spell changes.

Just checked youtube and yeah, it was purge. Dont recall the new sky dude, or this elder titan but sure remember bristle, centaur from old dota.

Elder Titan is based off the Tauren Chieftain.
