Dota 2 Patch 7.32e Patch Analysis – The Big Winners

We were patiently waiting for the arrival of the next Dota 2 patch, but most of us expected to wait for at least a week after The Lima Major 2023. However, Valve dropped The Dead Reckoning Update, which includes tons of new things, including Muerta.


We have already covered some of the new things you can expect to find in the patch. Aside from the new hero, features, and item changes, the Dota 2 patch 7.32e also brought tons of hero changes. Some of our favorite midder, carries, offlaners, and supports were nerfed, whereas others received buffs. 

This article will focus on the buffs and go through all heroes you should pay attention to in the new patch. Make sure to follow us for more information, and remember to take a look at the best Dota 2 betting sites.

Anti-Mage

Dota 2 - Anti-Mage becomes Godlike

Anti-Mage is one of the forgotten Dota 2 carries because he hasn’t been popular at all in the last few months. Many of the best players in the world considered him the worst hero in the game, so we weren’t surprised Valve decided to buff him.

Even though the changes aren’t that significant, AM’s Mana Void will now mini-stun all targets that he affects. Furthermore, his attack backswing is down to 0.3s instead of 0.6s.

Axe

Axe returns damage using Counter Helix in battles

Like AM, Axe hasn’t been that big lately, so he got a few buffs. For starters, his movement speed is now 315 instead of 310, meaning he will be able to chase his targets even easier.

The second new thing related to this hero is his Counter Helix radius. Although the ability deals the same damage, its radius is up from 275 to 300. Combined with the movement speed bonus, Axe should be able to hit its targets much easier.

Elder Titan

Elder Titan uses Echo Stomp on enemies

We haven’t seen Elder Titan in the meta for a while, and it seems like the Dota 2 patch 7.32e will change that. The new update increased Echo Stomp’s wakeup damage threshold to 250 on level 4. What’s more, the hero’s Astral Spirit now gives 17/38/59/80 damage per hero, instead of 14/36/58/80. It may not seem much, but it will positively affect the hero’s early game.

Enchantress

Enchantress slows her enemies and deals Pure damage with her hits

Puppey will be happy with Patch 7.32e because Enchantress is among the heroes that received significant buffs. Her ability Enchant now has 4s less cooldown on level 4, it slows for up to 60% and its duration is down from 3.75 to 5s.

Aside from this ability, the hero’s Little Friends cast range is also up from 600 to 750.

Juggernaut

Juggernaut cuts his enemies with his blade

One of the all-time favorite Dota 2 heroes, Juggernaut,  might make a return to the meta in patch 7.32e. His base damage is now 53-55 instead of 50-54, and Blade Dance does 190% critical damage instead of 180%. 

On top of that, Juggernaut’s level 10 talent gives Blade Fury a + 100 radius instead of +75. Interestingly, Blade Fury with an Aghanim’s Scepter now has an attack rate of 1.4s instead of 1.2s.

Lich

Dota 2 - Lich casts Frost Shield to protect his allies

Lich appeared in a couple of matches at The Lima Major 2023, but we expect to see him a lot more often. The new Dota 2 patch buffed his INT gain from 3.6 to 3.8 and also improved Flost Blost. Lich’s first ability now has a 0.3s cast time instead of 0.4s. And its range is 650 on level 4 instead of 600.

Although these changes may not seem much, they will definitely affect the hero’s popularity in pubs.

Sand King

Sand King impales enemies and stuns them

Sand King is one of those heroes we don’t see that often in-game, especially in the last few months. However, patch 7.32e will most likely change that because the hero received 4 substantial buffs.

His big ultimate, called Epicenter, now reduces the enemy’s attack speed by 30/45/60 instead of 30, whereas the movement speed slow is up from 30% on all levels to 30/40/50%. 

Besides that, Sand King’s level 10 talent gives Burrowstrike + 0.5s stun duration. On the other hand, his level 15 talent grants +120 damage to Caustic Finale instead of +100.

Warlock

Top 5 Intelligence Heroes in 7.32 - Warlock summons Golem to fight enemies

One of the heroes that can be a mid-laner or support (depending on what’s needed) also received buffs. Warlock’s Chaotic Offering with an Aghs gives the second golem +20 bonus damage, whereas the main one gets +30 extra damage on level 3.

In addition to the hero’s changes related to his Chaotic Offering, his level 10 talent gives him + 4% damage to Fatal Bonds instead of +3s. Needless to say, we think these changes will make the hero a lot more popular.

Windranger

Dota 2 - Windranger stuns enemies using Shackleshot

Many people have forgotten about Windranger, but we remember when this hero was the go-to option for everyone. However, the nerfs removed her from the meta, and we’re yet to see her back.

It seems like patch 7.23e might be just what she needed to bounce back in the meta. The changes gave Powershot a total of 3000 range, and Focus Fire’s damage reduction is now down from 30% to 25%.

Honorable mentions 

Of course, the heroes we’ve mentioned above are just some names that received buffs. There are a couple of honorable mentions that definitely deserve some attention. For example, Jakiro and AA got several minor buffs that strengthened both heroes.

Keep in mind that the Dota 2 Patch 7.32e has only been around for a couple of days. In other words, we are yet to see what will happen in the upcoming weeks. Make sure to follow us for more information if you don’t want to miss out on anything.
