Valve released its fourth tweak to gameplay patch 7.32 in Dota 2, marking a ‘D’ version of the most well-balanced patch in the game’s history. Like any fine-tuning patch, this one also features various tweaks that look to keep all heroes and items in check.

Some heroes at the top of tier lists were nerfed, while it was an item that was hit the heaviest. The patch, 7.32d, brought the end of Wraith Pact, as the item won’t be applying damage reduction to all sources.

Wraith Pact’s damage-reducing effect will only work on physical damage, meaning magical and pure damage types will be in the clear. Given this change makes Wraith Pact counterable, heroes that build the item will also have to think twice about builds. 

Here are all the remaining patch notes for the Dota 2 patch 7.32d.
