DotA 2 is one of the most popular games in the world today. DotA 2 features competitive gameplay and a challenging learning curve, which is why it’s played in high-stakes tournaments around the world.
Although the DotA 2 Items Mod is still a work in progress, this mod aims to bring a number of DotA 2 items to your Minecraft world. Instead of simply copying item textures over from DotA, each item has been individually re-textured to reflect Minecraft’s unique 16-bit style.
The end result is DotA 2 items that look like they belong in the Minecraft world. The DotA 2 Items mod includes new:
All of which are based off of features from DotA 2. One interesting feature with this mod is the fact that DotA 2 items are not dropped on death. Instead, players instantly receive all of the DotA 2 items they were carrying as soon as they respawn after death. This is useful when you just spent several thousand coins on a Blink Dagger or new staff.
Just like in DotA 2, passive effects will accumulate from all 9 items currently in your inventory hot bar. This is a great way to buff your player prior to a fight or protect them when simply exploring the world.
Players also receive gold coins for killing enemy mobs and other players. The higher the player’s level, the more coins that will drop upon death.
Where do players get all of these DotA 2 items? The best source is the new DotA 2 Shopkeeper NPC which spawns in every village. This NPC buys and sells DotA 2 items in exchange for gold coins.
DotA 2 items are slightly slower than items in vanilla Minecraft. Specifically, each blow takes 1.3 seconds to land with 0 agility. So far, all of the following items have been added to the game through the DotA 2 Items mod:
-Blink Dagger: Teleports players to target points up to 30 meters away. The Blink Dagger also negates all fall damage. It’s a great way to quickly climb up cliffs and other obstacles.
-Tango: The Tango consumes a tree when used. As the tree is consumed, the player’s health increases. Each Tango comes with three charges and the healing effects last for 16 seconds. This is also a convenient way to clear out a jungle or forest in a short period of time.
-Quelling Blade: This Blade destroys any targeted tree and gives bonus attack damage against all mobs.
-Eul’s Scepter of Divinity: Eul’s Scepter of Divinity sweeps targets into a cyclone for 2.5 seconds. During their time in the cyclone, that unit is invulnerable, but they also cannot move, attack, or use items. Eul’s Scepter of Divinity is easily the most expensive DotA 2 item in this mod, as it costs 2800 coins (the Blink Dagger is the second most expensive item at 2100 coins).
Whether you’re a fan of DotA 2 or you just think the new item abilities in this mod are cool, the DotA 2 Items Mod aims to improve Minecraft by adding some seriously cool new items and abilities.
