Dota 2’s community has discovered a tribute to the late Terry Pratchett in
today’s the upcoming 6.84 patch, now on the PTR. It takes the form of a new endgame item called an Octarine Core, which should seem familiar to fans of Pratchett’s Discworld series.
Octarine is the color of magic in Discworld and is sometimes called the eighth color, one viewable only by wizards. Pratchett died on March 12th at age 66.
We’ve posted a video of the Octarine Core in action below.
