After much anticipation, the Dota 2 7.29 release date is here, and with it, a brand new hero. Valve has lifted the veil on Dawnbreaker, and she's pretty much Lady Thor without all the Jane Foster backstory – a celestial warrior who uses a big ol' magic hammer to smite her enemies. Here's what you need to know about Dawnbreaker and her abilities.
"Valora, the Dawnbreaker, most prized warrior amongst the Children's ancient creations, is the shining herald of the majesty of order and light," as Valve describes her backstory. "Molded from the heart of a young metallic star, and charged by golden breath with new life, Valora was called to spread the glow of the Children's wisdom to the darkest reaches of the universe – setting fire to the heavens with each swing of her celestial hammer amidst an endless battle to keep chaos at bay."
Dawnbreaker's first ability is Starbreaker, which swings the hammer around three times in an AOE arc, before a final, forward strike that stuns enemies in front of you.
