➡ In the first five-part series, we look at the top 5 mid heroes for Dota 2 patch 7.32 in pubs over the past month.

International 2022 (TI11) is officially over. Tundra Esports acquired the Aegis, misplaced it, and later recovered it.

The void left in our lives by the conclusion of the professional Dota 2 season can only be filled by playing the game while pretending to be as good as the TI-winning team and getting frustrated with your teammates when they are unable to match the abilities of the best Dota 2 players in the world.

Now that we know that, let’s look at which heroes are crushing it in bars. Although TI11 had its own meta, the professional meta frequently deviates from the pub meta.

Today, we examine the top 5 pub mid-heroes from the previous month of Dota 2 games using patch 7.32.

There is a good chance that you will lose the game and get reported if, like Tundra’s Leon “Nine” Kirilin, you choose mid-heroes like Tusk, Spirit Breaker, or Outworld Destroyer.

You have a better chance of success if you stick with heroes who have been performing well in prestigious bars.

The Divine and Immortal brackets’ top performers, the heroes, have been chosen. This information was obtained from Dotabuff and examined over the course of the previous month while using patch 7.32.

Heroes with a high pick rate and a high win rate were combined to create the final roster.

➊ Leshrac (Pick rate: 11.78%, Win rate: 54.15%)

Recently, Leshrac received a few minor upgrades, one of which—an increase in base attack damage—has made life a little bit simpler during the laning phase.

The buff to Bloodstone, however, is by far the leading factor making Leshrac a well-liked hero at the moment.

Dota 2 patch 7.31d increased the lifesteal of Bloodstone’s spell from 25% to 30%, and patch 7.32 raised the active multiplier from 2 to 2.5.

Therefore, Bloodstone provides 30 x 2.5 = 75% spell lifesteal when the active is used! That is completely crazy.

The Disco Pony is the only hero in the game that the item is currently playable on (or Tormented Soul, if you prefer a much more dire and Dota 1-related name).

It is not only workable on Leshrac, but it also has problems. That is how effective the item is on the hero—almost all Leshrac picks at TI11 went for a first item Bloodstone on the hero.

Leshrac has a lot of tankability thanks to the spell lifesteal if he’s among two or three heroes and Pulse Nova and Diabolic Edict are both active.

Leshrac’s viability will be in doubt once the item is nerfed or reworked. This hero is good to play in the mid-lane until then, though.

➋ Tinker (Pick rate: 8.25%, Win rate: 54.87%)

Tinker received a buff for the Rearm channel time in Dota 2 patch 7.32, as well as a reduction in the mana cost for Laser and Rearm.

Because they supply the controlled units that enable Tinker to teleport anywhere on the map with just level 2 of Keen Conveyance, heroes like Beastmaster, Broodmother, and Chen who are fairly decent in the meta also help.

Although Tinker already has Rearm, the new talent’s 25% cooldown reduction benefit is still very useful to allies, especially when dealing with abilities with long cooldowns like Black Hole or Ravage.

The fact that Tinker didn’t have a very high pick rate at TI11 is a little surprising, but it’s likely that it’s because professional teams can outplay him with their coordination. But in bars, Boush rules supreme.

➌ Arc Warden (Pick rate: 4.85%, Win rate: 56.36%)

This is a tricky hero, but he works well in bars if you know how to play him.

Following the Dota 2 patch 7.31 increase in Spark Wraith damage and the level 25 talent’s 50% Tempest Double cooldown reduction, the popular build has been Octarine Core and Aghanim’s Scepter, making him a Spark Wraith spamming nuisance.

Aghanim’s Scepter had a win rate of 64.61% and was the fourth most popular item on Arc Warden last week, according to Dotabuff!

Aghanim’s Scepter causes a new Spark Wraith to appear where the previous one struck an adversary.

But it must be emphasized once more that this hero is one of the more challenging ones in Dota 2 and requires practice.

Arc Warden can’t just stroll into the mid-lane and expect to win the match.

➍ Tiny (Pick rate: 6.86%, Win rate: 51.03%)

For a very long time, Tiny was a position 1 hero, and all of the Stone Giant’s nerfs were directed at the right-click build.

However, his burst build, which is what is favored from the mid-lane, is still quite powerful. The builds for skills and items are obviously very different.

The typical skill build for mid-sized Tinies consists of one point in Tree Grab and maxing out Avalanche and Toss.

Phase Boots, Blink, and Echo Sabre are used to their fullest early-game burst potential in the item build, and late-mid to late-game physical damage items like Aghanim’s Scepter for Tree Volley and Daedalus can be utilized.

With the aid of his Aghanim’s Shard, which eliminates the count on Tree Grab, Tiny can quickly switch into a right-click carry in the event that the game lasts a very long time.

➎ Huskar (Pick rate: 4.35%, Win rate: 52.63%)

Berserker’s Blood max health regeneration bonus scaling better at the early levels from 16%/34%/52%/70% to 25%/40%/55%/70% was the only improvement Huskar received in Dota 2 patch 7.32.

He has a significant advantage in the laning phase, which may explain why he is more common in this meta.

Huskar is a snowball hero, so anything that makes it easier for him to win the lane is a huge buff.

Berserker’s Blood is maxed out first in all of the well-liked Huskar pub builds, claims Dotabuff. But other than that, not much has changed for the Sacred Warrior.

It helps that Dazzle is a powerful hero at the moment because Huskar is genuinely terrifying when paired with either Dazzle or Oracle because they allow him to survive on low HP, which is where he enjoys fighting.

Shallow Grave’s short cooldown compared to Oracle’s False Promise makes it more so with Dazzle.

Honorable Mentions

We will examine the top heroes in pubs for all positions in the upcoming days. These heroes may enable you to gain a small amount of MMR from the mid-lane up until the release of the next balance patch.
