These include various heroes such as very powerful mages, predatory creatures, and agile warriors. But today our focus will be on the most expensive Dota 2 item.

Players choose the heroes that appeal to them the most, both in terms of gameplay and appearance and play the game from their perspective. The appearance of the heroes in the game can be customized, but this does not affect the course of the game.
