New Features:

HoN features over 100 items, which may be daunting for new players. To reduce the amount of time new players spend browsing the shop, the entire system has been redesigned to help them learn the intricacies of items. In addition to enhanced visuals and interface elements, dual modes, a re-hauled purchase interface, and intuitive item progression, the shop introduces an entirely new search function, letting players search for any item by name.

Not only are the HoN names included, but common nicknames, slang, and even the names of DotA counterparts. EG if you search BKB, it gives you the HoN equivalence Shrunken Head.

One of the most important features of the new shop is the integrated hero guides. Hero guides are created, voted upon, and judged by the community, ensuring a large quantity of differing play styles and viewpoints for each hero. The integrated guides feature pulls the most highly rated guides from the site and sets them as default “templates” for how to play your hero. Hero guides feature a template for ability leveling, item suggestions for each stage of the game, and user-written instructions.

It also has the optional ability to automatically level up hero skills according to the guide and provides players with the coaching needed to enjoy and play any hero at a basic level, even those that a player may have no experience with. This lessens the burden of knowledge for new players. Advanced players may use the guide to create their own list of “favorite” items that are condensed onto a single page.

New Hero:

The Martyr can both protect and heal his allies, making him a welcome teammate in any situation. His usefulness extends beyond the defensive; the Martyr brings with him a game of brinksmanship, excelling in quickly creating surprise health swings in combat. And like any self-respecting Martyr, his death helps the cause.
