Since being added to Dota 2 with patch 7.23, there have been various neutral items with almost every patch. In patch 7.30, Icefrog has made no exceptions in that regard. Dota 2 patch 7.30 features changes and removal of some existing neutral items, including a fair few.

The eight new neutral items added with this patch are:

  • Pig Pole (Tier 1)
  • Tumbler’s Toy (Tier 1)
  • Brigand’s Blade (Tier 2)
  • Fae Grenade (Tier 2)
  • Blast Rig (Tier 3)
  • Ascetic’s Cap (Tier 4)
  • Witchbane (Tier 4)

Everything you need to know about the new neutral items added in Dota 2 patch 7.30

The neutral items no longer in Dota 2 with patch 7.30’s arrival are Faded Broach, Ironwood Tree, Imp Claw, Illusionist’s Cape, Minotaur Horn, Orb of Destruction, and Ballista.

A significant change regarding neutral items with Dota 2 patch 7.30 is the 5 neutral item drops per tier compared to the 4 before. This will give every teammate the liberty to obtain one of the neutral items in a particular tier and give an extra roll of dice at obtaining the exact item that a player might want in a Dota 2 match. This will certainly quell some Dota 2 players' criticisms over the RNG aspect of neutral items.
