DotA 6.80 Changelogs - Balance Update

The changelogs for DotA 6.80 are now officially released. This version brings tons of interesting balance changes through nerfs/reworks. Many heroes that received buffs (for e.g. Broodmother, Earth Spirit) are no longer overpowered in this patch. Kelen's Dagger no longer requires mana, Faceless Void gets 1000 movespeed in Chronosphere and much more. The v6.80 map will be released within a week with all these changes.
