Here are the Dota 2 Patch 7.35c patch notes

Jungling the small camp just became a whole lot harder.

Valve delivers Dota 2 patches like ambush predators, unleashing new updates when they’re least expected. Patch 7.35c went live today and while it may look underwhelming at first glance, beware of the game-changing updates to items, as well as the Kobold uprising in the jungle.

When players first loaded Dota 2’s 7.35c patch notes, three Kobold buffs greeted them as the whole gang received damage increases. Fluff aside, there were quite a few notable changes, with Mage Slayer leading the way for item nerfs. Despite receiving a notable downgrade, Mage Slayer’s key specialty—its spell damage reduction—was unchanged. Disperser’s Suppress effect was also nerfed while the item’s cost increased. On the hero side, Witch Doctor’s Death Ward lost its True Strike. Arc Warden’s Spark Wraith won’t be on the map for as long with its duration more than halved, and Lion received hefty nerfs to Mana Drain.

While these changes will spice up the meta before DreamLeague Season 22, Dota 2 fans are more focused on the Crownfall update, which is supposed to bring Ringmaster, Arcanas, and a Dota visual novel. Those hoping for the new hero will need to wait a little longer.

Here are the full Dota 2 Patch 7.35c patch notes, including neutral creep, item, and hero updates.
