Dota Underlords: Jull-tide Greetings

Dota Underlors is back on the rise yet again after it received the Outlanders Update. Although some people didn’t like the new changes, the overall player count clearly states that the fans of the game are enjoying it more than before.

However, it seems like the devs of this awesome game have another gift for us. The newest update, called Jull-tide Greetings, introduces many new changes, including a new Underlord.

Let’s take a look at some of the highlights from it.

Jull, the new Underlord

According to the update, Jull is a “businessman first and a criminal second.” This hero has very interesting skills, each of which can be invaluable in certain scenarios:

  • Shake it off allows Jull to reflect up to 50% of the melee damage back to the enemies. In addition, he will heal for 30% of the melee damage or 15% of the range one.
  • Aggressive Tank Fighting Style inflicts double the reflected damage but over eight seconds.
  • Healing Tank Fighting Style has a 10-second cooldown and it converts the damage to healing split.
  • Barrels of Fun is an ability that summons barrels on the battlefield. They can hit either an ally or an enemy. In the first case, the ally will get 50% attack speed, whereas if the target is an enemy, he will receive up to 800 physical damage.
  • Happy Hour – When Jull takes damage, 70% of it will be received over a period of 7 seconds.

New Selection Flow for the Underlords

Previously, you could get an Underlord at the beginning of each match. Now, you can only do this in Round 10. Every single Underlord now has Fighting Styles that contain a core and an ultimate ability.

There are no special talents for the Underlords anymore. Instead, some of them are added to the Core Underlord abilities. There is also no more Hype in the game, something that players were requesting for ages. Every Underlord will now cast its abilities when they are off cooldown. However, each Core ability will have a 50% cooldown remaining at the beginning of each round.

Apart from Jull, there are many other changes added to the other Underlords. Be sure to check the entire changelog if you want to learn more about them.

There are a couple of small hero tweaks here and there. However, the thing that definitely caught us off-guard is the removal of 14 heroes in the game. Here is a full list of what’s not available anymore:

  • Anti-Mage
  • Arc Warden
  • Enigma
  • Lina
  • Luna
  • Magnus

Apart from the mentioned above, there are also more not available anymore. Read the entire changelog before you start playing because Dota Underlords looks like a very different game than before.

Whether or not this was a good Christmas present for the fans is yet to be seen. However, one thing is certain, the Dota Underlords devs are very active, which is always a good sign.
