Dota 2's Tinker repairing his armor

With The International prize pool constantly growing and the grand tournament just around the corner Valve is constantly releasing minor updates in order to get Dota 2's balance as perfectly adjusted as possible before the carnage begins. One such update has been released earlier late last night, bringing with it a bunch of small, but rather meaningful hero and item changes.

Blademail is no longer affected by spell amplification, Solar Crest has been slightly reworked, Clinkz and Shadow Demon buffed up, and the list goes on. If you're interested in all of the details you'll find the patch notes right below, but if you don't really care about the specifics feel free to just continue playing as normal as none of these changes will affect your playstyle.
