The Dota 2 Crownfall Act 3 update just dropped, and fans of the MOBA can jump into The Frosts of Icewrack. As the story of Scree’auk, and Shen continues in the new act, players are not waiting around at all, exploring all the nooks and crannies of the new icy overworld as fast as they can. 

If you’ve played through the previous two acts, you pretty much know what to expect. You play with different heroes and earn tokens specific to that hero to progress through the path in the overworld. On your travels, you unlock goodies such as Candywork Candies, Free Battle Coins, and plenty of treasures and cosmetics.

So, what are the main highlights of the third Crownfall Act? You’ll find all the answers right here in this article. Let’s jump in!

Dota 2 Crownfall Act 3 Update Overview

Here are the new things that got added with the Dota 2 Crownfall Act 3 update: 

New Street Fighter Themed Mini Game

New Street Fighter Themed Mini Game

The moment you step into the Act 3 of Crownfall, you’ll be able to play a Street Fighter style mini game. You get to pick one of 5 Heroes: Dawnbreaker, Vengeful Spirit, Marci, Bristleback, or Tusk. You’ll be fighting these five heroes regardless of who you pick. There are three reward tiers for fighting. 

  • At 7,000 you’ll get one random token
  • At 21,000, you’ll get a random token and a Tusk Showcase Decoration
  • At 35,000, you’ll get three random tokens. 

New Tokens

New Tokens On Crownfall Act 3

Speaking of Tokens, Crownfall Act 3 also introduced a whole new batch of tokens that you’ll need to acquire to progress through the overworld path. Like before, winning a normal Ranked or All Pick game grants you three tokens, and losing grants you one. For Turbo wins, you get two tokens, and for losing, you get a Frozen Scrap token that you can trade in at the Scrap Merchant. Here’s a list of all the new tokens in Crownfall Act 3: 

  • Flame
  • Frost
  • Storm
  • Tide
  • Nature
  • Void
  • Blood
  • Mystic
  • Armor
  • Helmet
  • Shield
  • Robe
  • Cape 
  • Mask 
  • Fur
  • Scale
  • Minion
  • Illusion
  • Ward
  • Partner

Other than that, there’s also the Frozen Scrap token that you get from losing games and the Pathfinder token that you get from the Icewrack Pathfinder Pack. Hover your mouse over the tokens to see which heroes give you what token in the Act 3 overworld screen.

Token Trader and Scrap Merchant

The Token Trader and Scrap Merchant returns once more in Dota 2 Crownfall Act 3 and this time he’s got more offers for you to browse. In the Merchant’s tab, you can trade in any four of your tokens to get two random tokens. Alternatively, you can trade any two tokens to get three Scrap tokens. Finally, you can trade 6 Frozen Scrap tokens to get a specific token that you need.

Icewrack Pathfinder Pack

Icewrack Pathfinder Pack

Like the other acts before it, The Frosts of Icewrack also got its own Pathfinder pack. Dubbed the Icewrack Pathfinder Pack, players can pick it up for $14.99 to get access to some exclusive rewards.

The Act 3 Pathfinder pack gives players access to two exclusive side quests in the overworld that they can finish to get their hands on the Spectre cosmetic set: “Bloodbird’s Lament.”

The additional side quests will also allow players to pick up 10 extra Crownfall Store Coins, 20 Candyworks Candies, 9 bonus gift rewards, and 2 extra unlocks. You’ll also be able to pick up an extra Crownfall Treasure I, II, and III, along with Winter Wyvern’s “Solitude of the Winter Squall” Immortal item. 

Crownfall Collector’s Cache

As part of the update, you can also buy the Crownfall Collector’s Cache at the Crownfall Store. This seasonal treasure contains 16 exclusive sets for fan-favorite heroes like Muerta, Juggernaut, Luna, Grimstoke, and more.

You’ll need to spend $2.99 to get one Collector’s Cache treasure. If you buy 13 at once, the total cost becomes $34.99, and you will save around four bucks. It’s not a bad deal if you’re a collector, as these sets are season exclusives and won’t be available after Crownfall ends.

New Void Spirit Cosmetic Set

The Dota 2 Crownfall Act 3 update added a bunch of new things and it’s not possible to discuss all of them. But the thing that most players would look forward to is probably the last reward in the overworld path.

After finishing all the quests and collecting all the tokens you need to get through, you will be awaiting a Void Spirit Mythical bundle. It’s called Fascination of Flight and features a similar theme to Scree’auk. After all, that’s what this season is all about anyway.
