Mage synergy just got a huge indirect nerf by the addition of Black King Bar to the game. The latest patch comes with a buff for the six Knights bonus and a Blink Dagger rework among other changes.
Dota Auto Chess Black King Bar
Just like in Dota 2, BkB counters magic damage. It has a simplified recipe in DAC of course, and it’s actually more effective here than it is in Dota 2. In Dota Auto Chess (DAC), Black King Bar does not have any charges but it still grants 100 % spell immunity as well as magic resistance for 8 seconds.
Black King Bar combines from Mithril Hammer and Ogre Axe which will grant to a chess piece a plus 15 attack damage and 15% max HP.
Ogre Axe is also a new item for DAC and except for the BkB, for now, it does not combine with anything else.
Blink Dagger became even more effective for a piece like Tidehunter or Techies as now it grants +25% mana from taking damage.
Reaver: +500 Max HP, additionally +15% Max HP
Heart of Tarrasque: +1000 Max HP, additionally +30% Max HP. Grants 1% HP regeneration per 2 seconds.
Blade Mail damage reflection duration decreased from 5 to 4 seconds.
Besides item changes, the latest patch brought a buff for Terrorblade and for the six Knights synergy.
· Increased Metamorphosis bonus damage from 50/100/200 to 100/150/200.
· Increased (6) Knights’ Holy Protection team proc chance from 35% to 40%.
