The patch attempts to take care of many of the more popular heroes in the professional meta.

As the last Dota Pro Circuit of the year wraps up, so has 7.07c. On Tuesday afternoon, Valve dropped gameplay patch 7.07d, which takes aim at many of the frequent heroes present in professional matches.

The changes in this patch are much more specific than those of 7.07c, but they still do some work in changing some major heroes. For instance, Medusa’s ability to survive has been nerfed, and Omniknight has gotten some pretty obvious blows. Meanwhile, Dazzle gets a few small but important Talent buffs, and Mask of Madness, a popular carry pick, sees some hits to its movement speed and survivability. Morphling, a common pick for cores, sees some tweaks to his abilities and talents that may make him a little less unsavory.

Have your favorite heroes in this meta been hit? Or will you and your favorite pros be able to continue into the new year unfazed by these changes?

We’ve got the full list of changes below.
