After days of clamoring, a big addition to The International 10 Battle Pass has dropped in Dota 2.

The Disciple’s Path Hero Persona for Anti-Mage has arrived, giving fans one of the most sought-after cosmetic items of the battle pass. The skin reimagines Anti-Mage as a younger, female disciple named Wei.

It’s the second Hero Persona skin in Dota 2, following the Acolyte of the Lost Arts skin for Invoker that showed him as a young, aspiring mage.

While the Disciple’s Path skin technically falls into the same category of skin as the Acolyte of the Lost Arts, it actually goes a few steps beyond what fans got from one of 2019’s most sought-after skins.

The Disciple’s Path really, truly transforms Anti-Mage into being a completely different character. This includes everything from a complete remodeling of the character, new animations, and new portraits.

Despite both being Hero Personas, Wei is a completely different character. While Anti-Mage is self-important and preachy, Wei is significantly less serious. She has a more cheerful demeanor and cracks wise in a way that fans wouldn’t expect.

Wei still plays exactly the same way as Anti-Mage always has though, rushing an early Battlefury and playing Dota 2 as a single-player game in hopes of emerging from the jungle as an unstoppable killing machine.

TI10 Battle Pass still has a whole lot left to deliver on

The Disciple’s Path Anti-Mage skin was one of the most buzz-worthy parts of the TI10 Battle Pass and Dota 2 players are glad to have it. That said, there is still a whole lot left to look forward to when it comes to the battle pass’ premium cosmetics.

The Immortal Treasure 2 and 3 crates are still yet to be released and are actually a bit behind schedule. On top of that, the Compass of the Rising Gale Arcana for Windranger and Toy Butcher Hero Persona are yet to arrive for Pudge.

It’s unknown when those new items will arrive, but expect them to arrive before too long. The TI10 Battle Pass will be gone before long.
