Patch 7.00 changed the landscape of hero builds with the introduction of talent trees. Replacing the attribute bonus upgrade, players now have free upgrades at levels 10, 15, 20, and 25. While the meta for talents is still being figured out, many players are gravitating towards choices that result in lower win rates. Some talents are just better than others.
Lone Druid hasn’t been part of the meta for the longest time now. All of this may change with a new build and approach to the hero.
It has been a month since the release of 7.00, and despite some changes introduced in 7.01, it is time for a pub tier list. Once again, we will focus solely on the “very high skill” bracket, to have a respectable sample size, while only analyzing data from games where people have a good understanding of the core mechanics and strategies.
6.88 may have entered the history books as one of the most diverse patches in Dota yet, but it still wasn't without its faults. For all the records it broke in regards to heroes picked and banned, a few iconic heroes of the game have been on the sidelines, demoted to niche picks at best.
7.00 changed the game and as a result also the meta. The recent ESL One Genting was a first glimpse at what 7.00 (or 7.01 if you will) has in store for us and the return of two iconic heroes gives hope that this patch could out-class its predecessor.
Necrophos now tops the win rate charts for patch 7.01 at 57.64%. His rework, along with the nerfing of perennial pub-king, Omniknight, has rocketed him to be the biggest pub stomper of this patch.
We have already touched on the subject of how the new talent system, while being more or less a linear upgrade for the majority of heroes, can also open up completely new playstyles for others. Ember Spirit’s magic damage build is among the most popular new, meta strategies, but he is not alone.
