After a surprise announcement during TI10, Dota 2 fans can now play as Marci from DOTA: Dragon’s Blood in the latest Dota 2 patch 7.30e update.
Joining the ranks as a strength hero, Marci’s skill kit excels at disrupting her foes with annoying AoE slows and stuns. What’s more, she can also buff herself and an ally with bonus damage and lifesteal to increase damage output and survivability.
With such a versatile skill and talent set, she’s going to be a great go-to hero in your future pub games.
Marci’s skills in Dota 2 patch 7.30e
Skill 1 – Dispose

Skill 2 – Rebound
Marci dashes to a unit and springs over them.
All enemies within range of her landing zone after bounding will take damage and remain slowed for three seconds.
