Anime Mirana is finally in Dota 2, as Level 135 Reward for Dota 2‘s latest Battle Pass.
Anime Mirana is here, rendered in the same art style as the one seen in the Dragon’s Blood anime. Now she’s here, you can now form a party composed of the main characters featured in the anime. A second style, dubbed “Dark Moon Set”, gets unlocked at Level 235, which features alternative clothing for the Moon Princess. The set includes a Sagan skin for her month as well.
On top of the Anime Mirana skin, a Level 333 Reward features a Drow Ranger Arcana, dubbed “Dread Retribution.” The skin reworks Drow Ranger’s character model, which now features a bad-ass Ballista Crossbow. An alternate style gets unlocked with Arcana Progress, which gives the Drow Ranger a Crimson Glow. The 2021 Winter Battle Pass also features the return of Aghanim’s Labyrinth.
The introduction of Dragon Knight‘s Persona in Dota 2 introduced a new art style to the game. Admittedly, the art style does not match the majority of art styles for the legacy heroes in Dota 2, but it seems like Valve is introducing brand-new Personas and Arcanas to solve the issue. New Arcanas and Personas that match the anime’s style are starting to become the norm, and some of the more recent releases, such as Anti-Mage’s Persona, also match this new art direction. Over time, these Arcanas and Personas will likely replace the old character models of Dota 2, ushering in a new look for the game over time.
