Dota 2 treasure chests no longer hold duplicate items

Valve Dota 2

Don’t you hate it when you’ve spent weeks tracking down a treasure chest, cursing the drunken pirate who inaccurately scrawled an ‘x’ on your laptop screen when you showed him a Google Gaps view of the area, only to find it contains a Tigger mug - the exact same Tigger mug you already owned!

Valve hate that, too. That’s why they’re changed the chests in Dota 2 to stop them giving duplicate rewards. Plus, there are lovely bonuses thrown into the mix.

“From now on, you will no longer have a chance to receive a duplicate item from opening a treasure multiple times; each time you unseal a treasure, you will find a different item,” wrote Valve.

“In addition to ensuring you won’t receive the same item twice, each time you unlock a treasure you will also have a chance to obtain bonus rewards. Bonus rewards are granted in addition to an item found inside a treasure, and some treasures feature multiple bonuses. This means you could gain two or more items each time you open a treasure!”

This could have a bit of a knock on effect for the Dota 2 marketplace, though. Usually you’d simply take a duplicate item over to the store and sell it there to make a little cash for your Steam Wallet. Now, with every item being unique compared to what you already own, the collector in you may want to keep a hold of what you found.

That might be just me, though. I’ll never part with my Winnie the Pooh mugs. Never.

Kind of makes you think 'meh' though. All those times you had a leap of faith, bought a few keys to try for an unusual courier, or Kunnka's blade - and got 3 of the same 'rare' items. Money down the toilet - nad only now they do something about it :p
