Dota 2 hero Muerta carries one of the most powerful items in MOBA

Dota 2’s newest heroine, Muerta, was announced during The International 11 finale, and her Latin aesthetic and neon-inspired Día de Muertos design have already won over the MOBA fan base. Scheduled to drop in 2023, players analyzed the character’s trailer and found a cheeky little Easter egg tied to one of the game’s most powerful items.

An eagle-eyed fan zoomed in on Muerta’s backplate during the first segment of the trailer, taking to Reddit to comment “Muerta owns Revenant’s Brooch.”

A powerful magic item that requires components from the Secret Shop, the Revenant Brooch is described as “the cursed brooch of a fallen guardian who lurks forever between the veil of life and death.” Given Muetra’s name (literally “Death” in Spanish) and her ethereal appearance, one can assume that the brooch is, in fact, hers.

“The title of the entry in the Muerta short stories is ‘a mournful revenant rises’ and it also says ‘pierce the veil between the living and the damned as the new hero Muerta’,” comments the fan, noting that “she literally wears it”, in the cutscene.

You can see Muerta and the pin in action in the next video at 0:25.

The Wight’s Brooch is a pretty powerful item, providing bonus hit and magic damage, as well as high poison damage. It may imply that Muerta’s kit revolves around all things poisonous and magical, but with no concrete proof of his abilities, we’ll have to wait and see.

In 2021, League of Legends did a similar thing with the infamous Ruined King, Viego, the original owner of the game‘s legendary item, Blade of the Ruined King. The item is central to the Spectral Tyrant build, so it will be interesting to see whether or not Valve goes down the same path with Muerta and the Revenant Brooch.

I’m absolutely obsessed with Muerta’s design philosophy and can’t wait to see what it brings to the game. Until then, though, you can find me browsing our best Dota 2 heroes list for a idea of ​​competition. If you’re looking to debut at TI12 like Muerta did this year, it might be worth investing in some of the Dota 2 N0tail icon hardware choices to follow in the footsteps of Dota 2 royalty.
