The International 2020 (TI10) Battle Pass is finally here, bringing with it a whopping three Arcanas and two new Hero Personas for Battle Pass owners right off the bat.
Check out the new Arcanas and Hero Personas, as well as how you can get them, below:
Wraith King – The One True King
Wraith King’s “The One True King” Arcana is the only one available at the time of the TI10 Battle Pass’ release and is unlocked at Battle Pass Level 375. As you can see, the Arcana returns the Wraith King to his old beloved form as the Skeleton King.
Aside from returning the Wraith King to his old skeletal self, the Arcana also gives him new and fitting Hero Portrait, minimap icon, and Ability Icons. Of course, it also comes with a full set of all-new animations, along with all-new effects for Wraithfire Blast, Reincarnation, and critical hits — including a special kill effect for striking down heroes with a critical hit.
The Arcana also gives the skeletons summoned by his Mortal Strike ability more regal model, animations, and effects as well as a custom skeletal model for the Battle Pass’ High-Five feature.
In addition, the Arcana comes with an alternate style called “Malignant Rule” that imbues the One True King’s skeletal form with hellfire. Kill 100 unique enemy heroes and harvest their bones to unlock the alternate style.
Queen of Pain – Eminence of Ristul
Queen of Pain’s Eminence of Ristul Arcana is unlocked at Battle Pass Level 445, though it has yet to be released.
Judging from the artwork, the Arcana gives Queen of Pain a more demonic look and may change the animations of either her attacks or abilities to feature the whip she’s wielding.
Windranger – Compass of the Rising Gale
Windranger’s Compass of the Rising Gale Arcana is unlocked at Battle Pass Level 575, though it has yet to be released.
Judging from the artwork, the Arcana will give Windranger a new model that features her legs either wrapped by or turned into wind, alongside a new hairstyle and cloak. It should also give a new animation effect to her Windrun ability, among other possible changes.

Pudge – The Toy Butcher
Pudge’s the Toy Butcher Hero Persona is unlocked at Battle Pass Level 255, though it has yet to be released.
Judging from the artwork, the new persona will give Pudge a stuffed doll-like model and animations. The animations of his abilities should be changed as well, with stuffing probably replacing the blood and gore effects of the hero’s regular ability animations.
Anti-Mage – The Disciple’s Path
Anti-Mage’s the Path of the Disciple Hero Persona is unlocked at Battle Pass Level 305, though it has yet to be released.
Instead of turning the hero into another version of himself like the Invoker or Pudge personas, Anti-Mage’s persona allows players to switch him out and instead play as his female disciple, Wei. This should be accompanied with new voice lines and animations for the Anti-Mage’s disciple.
How to get them
The most direct way to unlock all the new Arcanas and Hero Personas in the Battle Pass is to simply reach the prerequisite levels for the items. Make good use of the new features arriving with the TI10 Battle Pass such as the Guild system, Battle Gauntlet, Bounty Killing, and the Sideshop.
If you don’t have the time or don’t want to go through the grind but have enough cash to throw around, then you can simply buy your way to unlocking them all.
Start by buying the Level 100 Battle Pass Bundle for US$44.99 to get to Battle Pass Level 100 right off the bat. To quickly get to Battle Pass Level 575 and unlock all the Arcanas and Hero Personas, then you need to buy the 24 Battle Pass Levels Bundle, which costs US$9.99, 20 times.
In total, you need to spend almost US$245 to get the TI10 Battle Pass and unlock all the Arcanas and Hero Personas that come with it without having to grind for free levels. As a bonus, buying your way there also unlocks a lot of the other features and goodies that the Battle Pass has to offer.
