DotA 2: Top 5 Best Heroes to Use in 7.33

DotA 2 7.33 patch

We can’t stress this out but, 7.33 is probably DotA 2’s biggest update so far! It’s so massive that it’ll take you another lifetime just to understand every change (just kidding). The newest DotA 2 patch added major features such as a bigger map and buffed heroes. Trying to re-learn DotA 2 now? Well, you might find yourself experimenting as you try to keep up with the game. But, don’t worry, we got you covered! If you are looking for the best heroes in 7.33, then no look further. We will be listing the top 5 best heroes for you to use in the 7.33 patch. Easy MMR? Read more below.


Tinker users will feast in 7.33 with how great this hero will capitalize on the new patch. Although its skills were nerfed, Tinker will be a go-to midlaner in the DotA 2 moving forward. Not to mention, Tinker will probably rule every game because of three main reasons: First, the map just got BIGGER. Second, most stuns/disabling skills duration received a significant reduction, which will allow Tinker to cast spells continuously. And lastly, Black King Bar just got nerfed big time, which means Tinker’s spells will bombard his enemies with ease. Well, most spell casters will take advantage of this BKB change, but we got our money on Tinker.

Just when you thought Alchemist’s time is over. 7.33 made huge buffs on Alchemist, making him a very reliable jungler. A bigger map means a bigger jungle, right? With Greevil’s Greed now becoming an innate ability, it wouldn’t be as hard as it once was for Alchemist users. You might see this hero in the game come out with full items in just 15 to 20 minutes, which is already very scary. In addition, he’s got a new passive ability called “Corrosive Weaponry”, which allows Alchemist’s attacks to apply a stack of debuff on movement speed and status resistance. Isn’t that just the perfect pair for Chemical Rage?

Arc Warden

Seeing double? That’s just your not-so-friendly neighborhood Arc Warden. Before you read anything, it is highly advisable you play Arc Warden when you are on the Dire side (just trust us). “For better or for worse”, Arc Warden’s Tempest Double creates a better or worse duplicate of itself depending on which side you’re on. The Tempest version has better abilities and spells compared to the original, making it a more formidable foe.

Arc Warden’s changes in Dota 2 patch 7.33

  • All Tempest Double’s abilities are replaced with ‘Tempest’ versions of Arc Warden’s abilities

  • Flux: Tempest version provides higher damage (15/30/45/60 -> 20/45/70/95) but a lower movement speed penalty to the enemy (14/21/28/35% -> 6/10/14/18%)

  • Spark Wraith: Tempest version has a shorter activation delay (2s -> 1s), a faster moving Wraith (400 -> 725), longer Slow duration (0.4/0.5/0.6/0.7 -> 0.6/0.8/1.0/1.2 ) but has lower damage (100/180/260/340 -> 75/135/195/255)
  • Tempest Double: Cooldown decreased from 60/50/40s to 56/48/40s
  • Level 15 Talent +40 Magnetic Field Attack Speed also grants to +40 Magnetic Field Magic Damage (Tempest Version)
  • Level 20 Talent +40 Flux Damage replaced with -9s Magnetic Field Cooldown

This is another case of “bigger map means bigger playground”. Techies, the explosive specialist, may just be perfect for the New Frontiers. Proximity Mines, Minefield Sign, as well as his other abilities can take advantage of this new massive map.

Techies’ changes in Dota 2 patch 7.33

  • Base Damage decreased from 21-23 to 12-14
  • Damage on level 1 unchanged (46-48)
  • Damage gain per level increased from +3 to +4.08
  • Reactive Tazer: Aghanim’s Scepter Upgrade moved to Aghanim’s Shard (the effect is unchanged)

  • Proximity Mines: Magic Resistance Reduction debuff now stacks independently
  • Minefield Sign: Cast Time increased from 1s to 2s. Now upgradable by Aghanim’s Scepter. Increases effect radius to 1000 and duration to 4 minutes. When an enemy hero gets within 200 units of the sign, the entire 1000-radius area becomes a minefield for 10 seconds. Enemy units will take 300 damage for every 200 units moved. The minefield area is visible to enemies once activated. The sign is destroyed after the minefield expires. Only one sign can exist at a time

Absolutely BROKEN! No words can say how broken and overpowered Zeus’ new ability is. Zeus’ newly acquired skill called Lightning Hands allows this hero to create Arc Lightnings along with each of his normal attacks. Although the damage dealt is only 50% (20% with illusions), isn’t that like a cheat code for Zeus? However, this will only be acquired once you buy Aghanim’s Shard. Some players will probably resort to a Zeus with attack speed items once they have Lightning Hands.
