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.

Wouldn’t the Discworld be such a great concept for an MMO?

Yep, I would also buy it, and I’m not usually one to buy couriers.

I always like the tributes that aren’t in your face or looking to cash in on their deaths. You’d have to be a fan to even know what the item was or what it was referring to. To everyone else it’s just a thing in the game. Well done.

He needs a hat that says “Wizzard” and a sapient pearwood Luggage that follows him on dozens of little feet.
