Marci New Skills & Abilities

Here are the abilities of Marci, the new Dota 2 Hero. Although simple, these abilities can provide game-changing opportunities.

Dispose: Marci grabs an allied or enemy target and throws it effortlessly behind her, damaging and stunning the unit if it’s an enemy. Any enemy units in the landing area will also be damaged and stunned.

Rebound: Vector targeted. Marci bounds to the targeted unit, choosing a direction and distance she will spring away from it. Upon reaching the unit, Marci lunges to her final destination, damaging and slowing enemies in the area.

Sidekick: Marci’s loyalty helps ensure survival, imbuing a chosen allied hero and herself with life-steal and attack damage.

Unleash: Marci taps a hidden power, gaining Fury charges that allow her to deliver a rapid sequence of strikes. The last strike in every Fury combo creates a damaging pulse around the target that slows movement and attack speed for two seconds. In between Fury combos, Marci is unable to attack for 1.5 seconds.

Compared to melee heroes like Bloodseeker, Doom, and many others, Marci is a mobile hero with versatile abilities. She can deliver good setup kills and carries heavy sustain potential. Her survivability is sure to come in handy when she makes her way into the Dota 2 esports scene.

Role in Meta

Marci is a melee hero that can play both support and carry. She is a threat when dealing with damage with a barrage of strikes or using her allies to her advantage. Although relatively new, Marci will change the way teams play melee heroes.

Her abilities to sustain and provide allies with life-steal will drastically impact games. Abilities like Rebound and Dispose can take advantage of the position of allied heroes. This gives her an edge over so many other melee heroes. With this in mind, Marci can be ranked in Tier one of Dota 2 melee Heroes.

Heroes play a massive role in team play and ultimately in esports tournaments. The release of Marci will provide teams with new opportunities and bring more excitement to Dota 2 esports events. As the tournaments go on in various stages, this will give Dota 2 esports betting new options.
