Level 30 is usually a rare sight in Dota 2, but a new Tome of Knowledge glitch can put anyone at max level right after the laning stage is complete.

Dota 2 players have discovered a new glitch that duplicates the Tome of Knowledge in the shop. The glitch allows all five heroes to consume infinite Tomes and get to level 30 at the start of the game. There’s no telling when Valve will address this glitch, but its game-breaking consequences warrant an immediate fix.

Tome of Knowledge is a consumable item in Dota 2 that grants a large amount of experience to a single hero. Each team gets one Tome of Knowledge available in the shop every 10 minutes. It’s usually used to get supports to level six or to boost a struggling core hero, but in this case, it allows you to just outright win the game. It’s nearly impossible to contest level 30 heroes less than 20 minutes into a match. 

How to activate Tome of Knowledge duplication glitch

To replicate the infinite Tomes glitch for yourself, purchase the Tome as soon as it is available and then sell it back to the shop. If you’ve activated the Tome duplication glitch correctly, it should increase the number of Tomes in the shop to three. You can then purchase two of the duped Tomes and sell them back to start the process all over again. 

This Dota 2 item dupe glitch also seems to affect other timed consumables as well. Players can get infinite Observers, Sentry Wards, and Smokes of Deceit. This bug is just the latest in a series of game-breaking glitches players have discovered since the release of 7.30.
