In Dota 2, it's not interesting if players will only focus on mastering the mechanism, especially those that are inherently dependent on visual effects as "video" games.
Aspects that improve the graphics quality of Dota 2 such as cosmetic items require game flow because adjustments provide aesthetic appeal, ambient effects, new ability icons, animations, and much more for players, whether pro or not.
Cosmetic items, dubbed "hats" by the community, have different categories. Even though there are "drops" in the game based on scarcity, there are some that cannot become spoils of war, so to speak.
For example, Immortals, the "rarest" of all cosmetic items, was exclusively released at Valve's event, especially during the much anticipated International.
There are items that are only available on other servers, while some are free in buying exclusive merchandise in real life.
Because they are subject to "limited selling power," they are usually highly valued in the Steam Market and are not even available sometimes. Traders tend to surpass it.
FOX Sports Asia has registered the 10 most expensive items of all time, not including certain Crimson and Gold God versions, as well as unusual couriers, such as those currently listed on Steam Market:
10. Eternal Machine Head (Immortal) – Clockwerk
While items only provide Clockwerk head elongated with a touch of gold and silver, Mohawk like teeth, and a pair of blue light lenses as the eyes of a "poor trader," the price is around $ 500.00.
Initially obtained during Steam Summer Sales in 2014, where users had to collect Steam trading cards online and make "badges", the form of rewards displayed on someone's profile, to get prizes.
The head is given at the fifth and final level of the craft, where only about one hundred copies of the item are available, thus justifying the current price even if it doesn't provide anything else.
This is "the greatest warfare belonging to Clockwerk known by the sharp people," through which "finally reached the peak of destructive power."
9. Guard Red Mist (Mythical) – Ax
Based on in-game items of the same name, which is a common build for him, this Ax item costs around $ 750.00.
It was initially available in quality Genuine in 2013, where one had to buy a real Vanguard Shield from Weta Workshop, a prop company based in New Zealand.
Eyes from "hell," creatures like ram, emblazoned on the item will light if the player takes Vanguard in the game.
The item is no longer available, because Vanguard Shield has been deleted. While the 2016 Trust of the Benefactor, the treasure that contains all the items, released more items, only 25 copies were available for the entire community.
It shares the same slot as the Immortal Ax, Mantle of Cinder Baron item, which adjusts Hunger Battle animation and has effects such as lava and the second selective style, which is more accessible to disadvantaged players.
8. Shuttered Greatsword (Mythical) – Sven
This $ 770.00 Sven weapon is only available during the 2015 event by Nexon, the South Korean Dota 2 server.
With a comparison that is greater than the other Sven weapons, the item has electric blue particles and seems to give a heavier autoattack swing.
However, when an Sven Immortal item, Vigil Triumph, was released in 2017, older items seemed to lose.
Newer Sven weapons, parallel to the exclusive item size of Nexon, offer the same ambient effect and have improved it by adding animations to the loadout, spawning, and Great Cleave, plus custom capability icons.
Maybe someone's intention to get this is to let others know that he can buy expensive items.
7. Tsukumo the Moon Cloud (Mythical) – Mirana
Mount Mirana, whose name is portmanteau from the Japanese words "tsuki" (moon) and "kumo" (cloud), is around $ 800.00 on the market.
The item, taken from the East Asian folklore moon rabbit, was only available in 2017 when someone bought a statue of Mirana from community artist "Artgerm" and "MarkNewman."
It has two styles to choose from, with the first being the embodiment of lepin. Available spawn, idle and running animations.
The second style seems to be a fierce, colored cat in shades of blue and white sky, with shining eyes and marks on its body. It does not have custom animations, however.
In any case, alternating between a soft, cute rabbit and an aggressive and cool tiger is possible, someone should have this ride.
6. Dragonclaw Hook (Immortal) – Pudge
Originally Mythical items returned in 2012, which cost only less than a hundred dollars, the price increased when Pudge became very popular thanks to veteran Danil "Dendi" Ishutin. On writing, it sits around $ 830.00.
The item adjusts the Pudge's hook as "the claw of the black dragon's left leg", with a chain that looks like a spine. He also got a "bone chain" behind his arm.
Its smooth appearance and bright colors can catch the enemy by surprise, compared to other Pudding poodles, more complicated hooks such as Hook of Prey Prey, Whalehook, Ripper's Reel, among others.
5. Lava and Ice Baby Roshans (Immortal) – Courier
The miniature version of the most powerful neutral game of this game is listed between $ 900.00 to $ 1000.00.
The Lava Baby Roshan has a Touch Gem of "Flame Touch" and Prismatic Gem "Pyroclastic Flow", while Ice Baby Roshan has "Touch of Frost" and "Glacial Flow." Both of them displayed their respective elements in detail and left traces as they moved across the map.
Couriers can only be obtained in two ways: from the Roshan Prize, exclusive tournament items from the Dota 2 Chinese Perfect World server; or from a promotional code for purchasing the Roshan Statue, during the Dota 2 Asia Championship in China.
Depending on the courier, players will also get the opportunity to receive Roshan’s Rage (Lava) and the loading screen Roshan’s Greed (Ice).
4. The Alpine Stalker 's Set (Immortal) – Ursa
Originally criticized by fans after being released in 2012, this Ursa set remains one of the most expensive items on the market today, at a price of around $ 1220.00 in total.
The set contains the following items: Lucky Alpine Stalker 's Hat ($ 660.00); Alpine Stalker 's Scarf ($ 310.00); Alpine Stalker Pants ($ 190.00); and Alpine Stalker Gloves ($ 60.00).
The set was initially rare, based on the Wild West theme where Ursa don cowboy hats, scarves, gloves, and pants. There are no particles or anything.
Many felt that his appearance was lackluster and incompatible with Ursa's knowledge, which showed that he was "the most fierce member of the Ursin tribe" who had killed "spreading evil" in the forest, his village.
The effect, it was immediately removed from the game, although some players were able to guard them. The set then changed as the first Immortal item from the game.
While the set makes Ursa look non-fashionable, it will definitely remind other players how rich the owner is.
3. Phractos (Mythical) Ax – Ax
Another Weta Workshop item is considered one of the most expensive cosmetics in the game, marked at almost $ 1700.00
An Ax statue must be purchased to receive Original quality goods, now not publicly available.
The weapon looks like a double-edged steel that is still being refined in remote areas. It has sparks and liquid particles, which customize the Helix Counter Axes.
Aside from the Wyvernguard Edge, it is the only Ax weapon that has an ambient effect, making it worth buying even if it's expensive.
2. Monarch Bow (Mythical) – Drow Ranger
But another Weta Workshop item is part of the list, worth $ 1730.00. It was available in 2013, by purchasing the Butterfly Sword.
Bow, said to be based on items in game Butterflies and Monarchs, has shades of teal, denim, and black. This has an ambient effect, where the bowstring illuminates in electric blue.
Every time the Drow Ranger forms Frost Arrows, blue electric monarch butterflies emerge from the bow.
Together with the Bow of the Howling Wind, it is the only Ranger Drow arc that has the effect of Frost Arrows, although several other arcs provide ambient particles, such as Bow of the Frostfangs, Bow of the Lone Traveler, and Infused Algid Legacy.
1. Platinum Baby Roshan
This Roshan courier is a discount on all other cosmetic items, even if some of them are combined, with an estimated value of $ 2,000.00.
It was initially given to 2013 Diretide players who made it into the Rush of Fame Rush Sugar.
The messenger had the "Ionic Ionic" Ethics Gem and Prism Pristine Platinum Gem, a combination which other couriers, including other Roshans babies, did not have.
When writing, one Platinum Baby Roshan on the Steam market has been modified and "improved;" The Prismatic Gem was originally replaced with Diretide 2012, Golden Baby Roshan, Midas Gold.
Since when is the price of just one item behind a computer screen enough to buy two new iPhone Xs?
