if you think you'll get the game fixed by posting here instead of the dev forums, you might as well be looking for the dev forums in a box

they're most likely unsusual items. Unusual items in TF2 have a special particle effect on them when worn.

You asked about an ultra-rare new feature that just got applied few hours ago to the people just who got the update exactly like you.

And your point is what? If they have the same chance as TF2 chests I'm sure quite a few people have gotten them already.

Yes. But only fews buy keys to open it, and the chance they get rare item is near zero. So why don't you ask they developers, who actually made that?

There's no manual or tutorial to tell us what are those things and how we can get those items and how we can customize our heroes by using proper method. I have no idea why that "Socialize" tab is lasting for so long with an empty blank page.

Because they didn't reveal them with TF2 so I'm assuming it would be the same.

Are stranges the same as they're in TF2? They keep count of kills?

Here's what I got in my first chest ^^



When killed by a strange weapon wielder, in this particular case, you are shown how many heroes that person has killed in their lifetime of wielding the weapon. The weapon will level up as more kills are attained, which results in a name-change.

I advise you guys not to open crates as the majority of loot is trash. Strange weapons are plentiful in TF2 and will soon be in Dota 2 and the chances for that exceedingly rare item is around 1%.

Open crates only is your in the mood to gamble.

Long term into the game the market will be oversaturated with items going for cheap.


ONLY DIFFERENCE IN DOTA 2 AND TF2 IS THAT YOU CAN'T CRAFT AT THIS TIME, OBTAIN METAL, OR MAKE MASS IDLE ACCOUNTS.

Anything in the store is not rare. I'm talking about chest only items like strange weapons and whatever else is in them.

Strange weapons with killcount, agh, all just like in TF2...
Do those kills work on bots, or only real players?
Anyway, this will lead to some awful farming, like forcing enemy team under fountain and killing them as long as possible just to 'lvl up' weapon :/

People do that already. I've never once seen a team in the position to fountain farm NOT do it.

Do people always have to buy a key or do keys also drop from games?

BTW, according to TF2 experience, opening crates is useless (unless they contain some sort of 'unusual hats' with special visual effects). As it is in TF2 now, most of items that are found in crates are worth less than a key for that crate if you trade with players instead.

I got a Unusual Fearless Badger with Burning Animus. If it's the same as TF2 it'll be about 1% of uncrating an unusual item.

There are 2 chests right now, Lost Treasure of the Ivory Isles and Treasure of the Deep Druids and each item in them has support for the strange modifier which tracks certain events. Some items track things other then kills such as Omnishred the Defiant which tracks Omislash jumps or Horns of the Forest Lord which tracks trees created. There are also unusual versions of some of those items and others that add special effects to the item just like TF2 which also come from the chests.
