Valve has released the latest Hero Persona for Anti-Mage to owners of The International 2020 (TI10) Battle Pass. Called the Disciple’s Path, the new persona swaps Anti-Mage out for his female disciple, Wei.
The female Anti-Mage persona is unlocked at Battle Pass Level 305, and lets players take to the field as Wei, who has her own model, animations, hero portrait and icons, and voice lines.
Here’s a closer look at the new hero model for the persona:
The lore of the new persona reveals Wei as an orphan who was adopted by the Anti-Mage and trained in the lost arts of the Turstarkuri, the now-extinct group of magic-averse monks whose deaths drove the Anti-Mage to destroy all magic and those who use it.
Valve has also released a short comic that explains Wei’s entry into the battle of the Ancients. You can check out the comic, along with other details about the Anti-Mage persona, here.
The Anti-Mage persona is the first of the two hero personas that come with the TI10 Battle Pass to be released, with the second one being the Toy Butcher persona for Pudge. The battle pass also features three new Arcanas, with the first two for Wraith King and Queen of Pain already available.
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, don’t want to go through the grind, or simply have enough cash to throw around, then you can just 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.
