Dota 2Update 7.32 included several revisions to the game.
Heroes take longer to level up, there is less passive gold on the map, a new season of neutral items has been introduced, and the new Flagbearer Creep now charge through lanes.
It doesn’t matter what year or Dota 2 the patch is, two things will always be true: the latest Battle Pass is the worst ever released and people will find the best heroes to spam for MMR grind.
While there’s nothing we can do to fix the Battle Pass, we’ve compiled a list of the three best mounts to play in the current 7.32b patch to help players climb the MMR ladder.
The thrill king of the jungle received several nerfs in both the 7.32 update and the subsequent 7.32b patch. Despite his many successes, Chen is arguably the strongest support in the game.
There are many things for Chen to do. The hero only needs a headgear along with a level or two in Divine Fervor to win his carry lane. The extra 3.5 health regeneration during the lane phase is enough to sustain almost any enemy.
In addition to the high support provided by the hero, Chen can also take control of neutral thrills to tackle any lane match.
Does the enemy have high physical damage? Then an Ogre Frostmage is perfect.
Do you want to exclude the opposing offlaner? Get a Harpy Stormcrafter and Spam Chain Lightning a couple of times.
Worried about the enemy using their mana to play aggressively? A burn or two of mana from the Satyr Mindstealer will put an end to this.
After the lane phase, Chen can begin to reap the creeps with powerful auras and take down towers with ease.
The way Chen plays has changed over the years, as the hero now focuses on providing his team with more useful auras rather than just four Conqueror Centaurs with War Stomp (not that there’s anything wrong with that too).
While Chen has received several direct nerfs, the hero item build has been improved to compensate.
Mekansm and Guardian Greaves are cheaper and heal more respectively, while Vladmir’s Offering and Wraith Pact also provide more lifesteals.
Chen isn’t the easiest hero to use, but he’s worth mastering, thanks to his Swiss Army knife approach to lane phase, strong pushing power and ability to strengthen his allies.
Chen is currently in the top 10 heroes with the best win rates this month with a solid 53% win rate.
If the thought of controlling multiple units seems daunting, then how about an army of mindless zombies who don’t need you to command them to attack?
Undying received some strong buffs to Decay which made the hero overwhelmed during the lane phase.
Decay does not change a hero’s health upon expiration, which means that Immortal no longer loses 80 health when a stack of Decay expires and the enemy does not regain 80 health.
This means that every time Decay is used, Undying gains a 160 health advantage over its enemies.
Since most offlaners tend to be strength heroes, Undying also reduces their attack damage as it hits harder with each Decay throw.
Combine this with bonus health and become the strongest hero to play lane against, as long as he has enough mana to spam Decay.
Aside from Decay’s buffs, Undying is still the same old hero.
Tombstone is a fantastic team combat spell and works great when fighting close to a target or when falling to the nearest cliff. Soul Rip is a versatile skill for finishing off weakened enemies, keeping Tombstone alive or healing allies, especially with a Holy Locket.
While Undying doesn’t fit particularly well at the end of the game as a support, its overall duration with Flesh Golem allows it to waste many of its enemy’s spells and damage to take it down.
Immortal is harder to ignore in patch 7.32b, as Decay deals more damage and the level 20 talent halves its cooldown.
Undying is the perfect hero for people who like to destroy their enemies in lane and proceed to accumulate all the damage inflicted by their opponents.
The hero is simple to use, has a versatile kit, and transforms into one of the most durable stands in the game with his ultimate.
In nearly every list of the best MMR grinds, Omniknight makes an appearance, and for good reason.
The hero is incredibly resilient and provides his team with a powerful dispel along with a maximum that nullifies the enemy’s physical damage.
Despite the hero’s numerous strengths, Omniknight has been out of the competitive meta for a long time, so in patch 7.32, IceFrog decided to provide the hero more and more passionate.
Heavenly Grace now dispels both the Omniknight and the target it is used on. This makes the spell more useful when dealing with area-of-effect spells like Arcane Curse, Crystal Nova, Fire Spirits, and more.
In previous patches, Omniknight would have had to choose between removing negative effects on allies or on himself and now that’s no longer a problem.
But it’s not just Heavenly Grace that got some affection in the latest gameplay update.
Hammer of Purity costs significantly less mana at all ranks, while dealing more damage. Since the spell was added to his kit, Omniknight’s lane phase has greatly improved and, with the buffs the spell gained at 7.32, it will be a headache to play against for melee offlaners.
When it comes to the hero item build, there really aren’t any wrong options.
Players can opt for utility with Force Staff and Lumen Cape, or for additional healing with Holy Locket and Mekansm, or simply add more auras with Drums of Endurance and Vladmir’s Offering.
Omniknight is flexible with its item build, allowing players to adapt to different play styles and match-ups.
A good lane phase, strong dissipation, high durability, and the ability to completely nullify physical damage are some of the many reasons why Omniknight has an excellent 55% win rate and is worth mastering.
