Dota 2 "Crownfall" Update: How It Works and What Are The Rewards?

Reading time  ~7  mins

Valve has released the much-awaited "Crownfall" for Dota 2. This story event revolves around the history of Skywrath Mage and Vengeful Spirit. Many players have speculated about a connection between the two heroes as they come from the same city, share similar backgrounds, and may be in a relationship.

On April 18, 2024, Valve released a comic to clarify, but the community questioned why they posted comics instead of updates. Valve responded: "Because we've just released The Markets of Midgate, the first act of an ongoing story event called Crownfall, filled with legendary heroes and unique rewards."

The community discussion regarding the update can be found on Reddit. Overall, the update reviews are primarily positive, and players eagerly await the release of the next Act. This article will describe the "Crownfall" update, the rewards that can be earned, and the most efficient way to complete the associated event.

The Markets of Midgate

So, "What is Crownfall all about?". This was the question Valve aimed to answer with their latest release. They wanted to provide players with a fresh way of experiencing character development while also introducing unique gameplay elements. The game offers a range of rewards, which we will explore in detail.

Join Shen and Dragonus as they navigate the bustling streets of Skywrath to reclaim their rightful place on the throne! Along the way, they will meet new and familiar characters, uncover hidden truths, embark on exciting side quests, and even take a break to catch fish. The more you explore the intricately designed world map, the greater your rewards will be. Get ready for an interactive adventure like no other!

The Markets of Midgate, Act 1

Playing Dota games during Crownfall earns you tokens. Each hero has three tokens, and some have two or three of the same type.

  • Losing a game rewards the player with one random token

Players can also earn tokens in Turbo mode but at a less efficient rate:

  • For a win, players receive two tokens
  • For a loss, players receive nothing.

Tokens can also be earned from random events scattered throughout the map.

Among the random events, you can also find a token exchanger.
