True Sight: The Kiev Major Grand Finals

An all-new episode of True Sight is now available, and all fans are invited to venture backstage with Team OG and Virtus.pro as they battle through the best-of-five Grand Finals at The Kiev Major.

With a level of all-access coverage that follows the contenders all the way from the ready rooms directly into the tournament booths, you’ll gain new insights into the battle of wits that occurs as two of the top teams in the world face the gamesmanship of the draft, endure the ebb and flow of the fight for the Ancients, and regroup with coaches and teammates in the aftermath of both victory and defeat.

While you may already know who reigns supreme, as you witness the journey undertaken to seize the Mystic Staff, you’ll see that not all has yet been revealed.

Exclusive Io Arcana

Some fans may have noticed that Io was not included in this year’s Arcana vote—indeed, we removed the wispy Fundamental from the selection process for pressing ceremonial concerns. But Io’s influence reaches into the very fabric of the Dota universe itself, and many astute fans found they could still hear the comforting sounds of Io’s benevolence seeping through the stream of rewards by clicking on the blank space at Battle Level 245. With today’s update, however, Io has at last relocated directly into the line of level rewards to unveil an all-new Arcana.

After seeing Io float away with a second-place finish in last year’s hotly-contested final round, we decided this year that the wisp deserved to skip the vote and select its own favored form. And what a heart-warming form it is! Now available to all Battle Pass owners who surpass level 245, the Benevolent Companion Arcana imbues Io with the form and function of the best friend anyone could ask for.

Featuring new animations, custom ability effects, custom sounds, and a special death effect, this exclusive Arcana can be obtained by reaching level 245 in The International 2017 Battle Pass, and—much like the Kunkka Prestige item at level 225—will not be available to market or trade. Don’t miss out—make sure to level up your Battle Pass before the end of The International to claim yours. Then take heart, all ye who unlock this reward, for Io knows that no matter where the tide of battle leads you, the bonds of friendship will always carry the day.
