Aghanim's Labyrinth is here. This new summer event is free to all Dota 2 players and does not require the Battle Pass.
Aghanim's Labyrinth is a player-vs-everything challenge mode that pits groups of four players against "the toughest monsters Aghanim could procure from countless dimensions before facing the Apex Mage himself." If playing solo, players can matchmake to find a group for the challenge.
Players will choose their path as they move through the challenge. They can decide what skills to acquire, rewards to earn, and monsters to fight each time they take on the labyrinth. Aghanim Scepter Shards are collected on each run and augment your character's abilities. Players can earn up to 2,000 Battle Pass points per week by competing in the challenge. Upon victory, players can return to the labyrinth with a new "Ascension Level," increasing the difficulty and improving the rewards. There are four Ascension Levels that players can take on.
Aghanim's Labyrinth: How to Beat the Dota 2 Summer Event
Starting Jul. 21, players can compete in "Aghanim's Trials". This is a weekly challenge with a global leaderboard where the best teams are rewarded with "Aghanim's rarest and most valuable prize."
Aghanim's Labyrinth just released yesterday, and Dota 2 players are already offering a bevy of tips to help beat the challenge. For one, the final boss has no magic damage resistance. Stack up on magic damage and upgrades as you proceed through the labyrinth. Popular hero selections are Viper, Winter Wyvern, and Sniper. Many players are finding success with Omni as their tank.
There is also a way for players to stack a ton of permanent agility onto Sniper. Sniper's Big Game Hunter skill will grant him three permanent agility any time he assassinates a captain. In the room with the black altars, captains will continue to spawn until the altars are broken. Sniper can stack up his agility by killing them as long as his team is willing to hold back.
