Trivia

It is an upgraded version of two items: Orchid Malevolence and Crystalys. Initially, players would purchase Orchid Malevolence and Crystalys separately. However, through an update in the game, combining these two items resulted in the creation of Bloodthorn. This upgrade mechanism allows players to obtain a more potent and advanced item by merging these two components. It's a unique feature in Dota 2 where certain items can be combined to create even more powerful ones, offering new strategic possibilities and enhancing hero capabilities during matches. The Bloodthorn's creation through this item combination system demonstrates the game's evolving dynamics and the importance of item progression for heroes as matches progress.
