Dawnbreaker shines in the heart of battle, happily crushing enemies with her celestial hammer and using the energy released to heal nearby allies. At one with the mass of her weapon, she revels in hurling her hammer through multiple foes and then converging with it in a blazing wake.
Created to rival ancient forces of chaos and darkness by descendants of the first light, Dawnbreaker only taps her true cosmic power to fly to the aid of her teammates — eager to rout her enemies on the battlefield no matter where they may be.
Dawnbreaker is a new melee hero who is described as a Children of Light warrior “molded from the heart of a young metallic star.” Her primary pass, Starbreaker, entails spinning her hammer three times.
The hammer smashes down on the final blow, shocking and destroying opponents in front of her. Who doesn’t like throwing a massive hammer?
There hasn’t been any Dota 2 news, aside from the anime spinoff series that aired on Netflix last month. The game has been greatly improved, and a new hero, the hammer-wielding Dawnbreaker, has been added.
Dawnbreaker has three additional powers. Celestial Hammer directs her hammer in a single direction, damaging all opponents in its path and leaving a trail of fire in her wake.
Luminosity, which can be unlocked after three attacks, restores all allied heroes within 650 units of her—the more damage she does in her attacks, the more healing her allies get.
Finally, Solar Guardian causes a pulsing effect near every allied hero, damaging enemies and curing the squad.
Dawnbreaker is part of the wider v7.29 Dota 2 update, which also includes map patches, XP improvements, new and disabled objects, and much more. The complete changelog is available here.
