Void Spirit; Second hero to be announced at TI9

Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

Another new hero has been revealed at TI9 - Void Spirit.

TI9 is the event that keeps on giving. Valve has given fans not just one new hero this year, but once again is bestowing two new heroes upon us. We are not worthy for sure. 

Rumors had been rampant that a second hero would be introduced and a few observant fans had noticed a fourth, purple symbol alongside the other three spirit symbols. 

Void Spirit seems to be the fourth spirit brother. Although we don't know much about him, he has an Invoker-esque look to him and appears to be a melee hero.

Unlike with Snapfire's more detailed trailer, Valve gave no indication to fans when Void Spirit is expected to join in the battle.
