Level Boxes in Dota 2 and 75% discount on store
Update: Seems like as expected the drops remains the same regardless of level. (The later boxes difference is that they have tradeable items it seems)
When you log on into dota this patch, you will probably be greeted by the level boxes! (Along with the Wraith Night event)
I think there are 9 to 10 boxes, with the last one being current lvl + 5, I’m unsure as to whether it scales tho so one might put it off til reddit confirms whether there is scaling as to loot possibility. If there isn’t then it is better to open asap to clear the 5 levels, if not then it may be better to wait for a higher level.
There’s also a mythical courier boar somewhere there, I guess that must really tank the prices for those who purchased mythical boar couriers.
Most of the items from the boxes are bound to account/soulbound/non tradable/ non marketable. Some of them will tend to be really useful such that you will use it for yourself however!
At the level 8 box you get a mythical welcoming chest that leads to a rare item with an inscribed socket. The hamers and chisels are soulbound but are there to give you an introduction.
This is a pretty good way of introducing the system to new players, through goodie bags (around christmas too) which people may pay more attention to than an opening tutorial. This semi prevents smurfing too, as well as people rerolling for items.
The soulbinding of the items probably has to do with the economy, to prevent overflooding, but the provision of rares and mythicals like the mythical boar courier would necessarily bring down existing prices (compounded with the 75% dota 2 store discount).
Some of the stuff you might be able to get, but all soulbound
