One item is dominating the Dota 2 meta so much that it’s become more than a meme
It's finally getting its moment in the spotlight.
The infamous Meteor Hammer item, also known as the Meme Hammer by the Dota 2 fandom due to questions about its effectiveness, was added back in Oct. 2017. Players can buy the enchanted hammer comprised of a Perseverance, a Crown, and a Recipe for 2,300 Gold to receive eight points in each stat, 6.5 health regen, and 2.5 mana regen.
Its active ability, however, is what defines it. After a channeling period, players summon a meteor that strikes an area, damaging and stunning enemies and buildings, with a portion of the damage applied upon impact and a portion applied over time.
