We take a look at some of Pudge’s most expensive cosmetic items, and what makes them so expensive.
Dota 2 is one of the most popular MOBAs for millions of players around the world. Most of them love the game due to its high skill cap and the fact that it has been around forever. However, others are fans of Dota 2, mainly because it offers a lot of cosmetic items.
Although Valve does not use the term “skins” to describe them, it is a common term in the gaming community because these items have no in-game benefit. They only change the visual appearance of a given hero/object/ability, making it more interesting to watch.
Like CSGO, Dota 2 offers a number of unique cosmetic items for some of the most popular heroes. These items are divided into different groups on the basis of their rarity. For example, the arcana is one of the most sought-after and rare items, while “rare” sets are easier to find.
Speaking of Aransas and other items, Pudge is one of the few heroes in the game who has access to all kinds of things. He’s also the most popular hero in the game, so it’s time to take a look at some of the most expensive items you can get for him.
feast of accession bundle
The first item we want to add to the list is the infamous Arcana of Puja. Although it took a while for Valve to release, the item quickly became really popular. This shouldn’t come as a surprise as Pudge is one of the game’s most famous heroes.
Unlike other Arcanas, you can actually buy it. Anyone interested in this has to spend EUR 32.99, which is a lot of money for an in-game item. However, definitely worth it as it makes the Archana Puja even more special.
In addition to changing the hero’s ability icon, it also changes some of his animation, such as his ultimate. Unsurprisingly, the Arcana affects their models, sound, icons, and animation as well.
Despite the fact that the item became available in 2017, it remains one of the most popular options in the game. If you buy it from Steam, you’ll also get a Warp, as well as a special Abstract Emoticon Pack.
black death chain
Pudge is one of the few Dota 2 heroes that will give you access to tons of sets. There are all kinds of things to choose from, and they all look good. However, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so what we find interesting doesn’t mean it will be good for you.
We’ve checked out some of the most popular sets for the protagonist and came up with an option called Chains of the Black Death. This might be too much for some people, but this legendary set includes a lot of items that make a hero special.
As for the price, you can get it for around 10.49 EUR, which isn’t bad for a great set for one of the most sought-after heroes in the game.
Tarasque’s corrupt hull
If you want your pudge to be unique, there is an item that will let you stand out no matter what time you play. It’s called Tarask’s Corrupted Hull, and costs $1,595. This amount may sound crazy for an in-game item, but it seems like what people are willing to pay when they want to stand out.
The interesting thing about Helm of Tarasque is that you can find this item among other rarities. For example, a damned version of it goes for around $407, which is quite a bit.
autographed dragonclaw hook
Every old school Dota 2 player knows that dragonclaw hooks are one of the most expensive items in the game. Despite the fact that it was introduced several years ago, it is one of the rarest and most sought after items in the game. Therefore, people often have to pay a lot of money to get their hands on it.
Standard versions of items are expensive, but autographed ones cost even more. Therefore, autographed dragonclaw hooks often reach around $195 USD. That’s a lot of money, especially for an item that doesn’t change a lot of things. For example, it does not change the model of Puj.
In addition to the autographed version, you can find a corrupt and an inscribed option. They’re a little less expensive, but you’ll need to spend at least $160 more to get them.
cursed chained slayer set
If you are looking for an interesting set that your friends won’t have, you can take a look at the Cursed Chained Slayer set. Some people don’t like this option because it doesn’t feel that special. However, it’s one of the rarest items in the game, which explains why you’ll rarely find more than a few options in the Community Market.
The bad news is that those who want to get it should be prepared to spend a lot as it usually costs $340 more. That said, some may sell it for cheap, so keep an eye on the Steam market for more information.
frozen meat dragger
It might surprise some of you that there is a hook for pudges that is more expensive than a dragonclaw hook, but the Frozen Meat Dagger takes the crown, at least for now. At the time of writing this, the price for this item is approximately $759, which is almost 4 times the price of the item mentioned above.
Of course, the reason why this item is so expensive is that it is “frozen”, which is rare indeed. In case you don’t remember, this item became available in 2013 when it was part of “Frostivus.” Sadly, you can’t find it anywhere other than the Community Market, so check if it’s available.
