It was back in August 2015 during The International Season 5 All-Star Match when Valve’s Erik Johnson hinted the release of Pit Lord and Arc Warden, the last two major heroes from the original DotA game. As we all know it, Arc Warden was released during the Winter Update. And now that the International 6 has already started, we all await the release of the last original DotA hero, Azgalor.
There are many speculations as to why the Pit Lord or Abyssal Underlord has not yet been released in the game. Some say Abyssal Underlord will play a big role in a cinematic film that showcases all the original DotA heroes while other say they are delaying the release because he’s the last hero that Valve has in store. As of now, though, there are videos circulating on the web of Abyssal Underlord’s in-game look and skills.
Azgalor known as the Abyssal Underlord is a strength-type hero. He was called Pit Lord in the original DotA game but was likely change by Valve to avoid any copyright infringement problems with Blizzard.
Firestorm is a magical damage ability where he Abyssal Underlord calls down waves of fire that affect enemy units in the target area, which continues to burn them for additional damage over time.
Pit of Malice
Abyssal Underlord summons a deadly pit at a target location. When an enemy units enter the pit, he will automatically be stun for some time and take damage. Each enemy unit can only be affected once.
Any nearby enemy units are weakened by Abyssal Underlord’s aura, losing a portion of their base damage. If the enemy dies due to this effect, Abyssal Underlord will gain bonus damage.
Abyssal Underlord opens a dark rift at the targeted friendly unit’s position. After a brief delay, Abyssal Underlord and all nearby friendly heroes will be teleported to that unit’s location. This ability can be canceled any time during the cast. If canceled this way or the target unit dies before the spell becomes active, Dark Rift goes into cooldown.
As of now, there are limited details about Abyssal Underlord’s gameplay, and all we have to do is to wait for further info about his release. DotA 2 is a popular MOBA game developed by Valve played on Windows and Mac OS gaming PC.
