Heads up, Marci fans! DOTA: Dragon’s Blood’s best girl is Dota 2’s 122nd and newest hero.
Her arrival was announced by Valve during Day 5 of The International 10’s (TI10) playoffs after Chinese team PSG.LGD defeated Team Secret 2-0 in an upper bracket final match.
She is the second character to be added to the game’s cast of heroes this year, following Dawnbreaker, who was released on September 28, 2021.
Marci is Dota 2’s next hero
DOTA: Dragon’s Blood viewers will recognize Marci as Mirana’s badass mute bodyguard from the popular Dota 2 Netflix show.
A favorite among old and new fans alike, Marci and her royal companion can now continue their quests in-game once she is added to the game’s roster in the fall.
Based on her reveal trailer, Marci looks like a strength melee hero who deals massive amounts of physical damage. She can also charge her strikes with a cool-looking power-up in which her eyes and fists light up.
