Dota 2 The Outlanders update has received another minor patch with a couple of interesting tweaks. Neutral items will start appearing at seven minutes instead of five and Lifestealer has received nerf for inane support playstyle.

Valve have released a new sub patch for Dota 2 The Outlanders update. In the patch 7.23b, neutral items will start appearing only at seven minutes, instead of the previous five. A couple of tweaks also arrive to 15 heroes with Lifestealer receiving a major nerf for the inane support playstyle.

On top of this, Valve also removed the innate melee hero damage block, which was introduced in the main patch. Now, it will only work against neutral and lane creeps and will be totally ineffective against players and player-controlled units.

This also means that all heroes that deal with summons (Nature's Prophet, Broodmother) have received a buff but it's a blanket nerf to all melee heroes. Here are the full patch notes for 7.23b:
