Default Bloodstone of the Precursor!! *NEW ITEM*


So, I just received this randomly in my inventory...




Does anyone know what these are for?

//EDIT: My apologies, I did a quick scan of page 1 and didn't see a thread had already been created a page or two back.

Still not sure what it is for.

Someone mentioned you should delete it because the chance of getting a quality item from it is very high, idk about that lol.

11 count mythical here. I sent out a lot more invites than 11 though, but then again I did trade a few of them rather than gift them, which kinda sucks.

Are they something akin to the medals in TF2 that tell you how long you played for?

In other words, it's a waste of inventory space.

This brings me to my second question.
Seeing how the item is useless, would it be wise to delete it for a chance to acquire something of better use?

People are claiming to receive high value items and couriers from deleting the item.

Thoughts?

Random drops are random.I got a mythical announcer when i had 2 items


OT

What this item should do IMO is

"Thank you for getting new players into dota.You have a guaranteed item drop for every invite you have sent.The bloodstone can be equipped as a misc item on every hero"

That would be truly epic!

Part of me wants to think that Valve wouldn't just make a 'special' item of appreciation without giving it some type of use/benefit/profit.

Makes me wonder what might be in the works for this item.

Then again, TF2 hats, so, idk.

I guess I'll wait a little bit and see if valve has plans for this item before I delete it at a chance for something better.

It would be funny if someone actually deletes it because of that troll in this thread.

I would keep it if I were you. Valve might come up with an idea to give something exclusive to its owners. Don't tell me filled your inventory completely and can't spare any space for one item..?
