Less than a week from its latest gameplay update, Dota 2 receives a new patch that brings only nerfs and a few general changes.
Outposts experience is reduced once more after it was nerfed in the 7.23c as well. With the new patch, the Outposts experience is scaled down to 15 per minute from 18.
Tome of Knowledge initial stock capacity is reduced from 2 to 1 at 10 minutes while the hero kills XP bounty is reduced from 40 + CurrentXP * 0.14 to 40 + CurrentXP * 0.13.
Passive gold income no longer increases with hero level.
