Frostivus 2017 - Best sets and skins

Find out the best sets and skins submitted for Frostivus 2017. Valve extended the deadline for the Call to Arms contest to November 24. Page regularly updated.

In October, Valve announced they would accept submissions from the Dota 2 community artists based on the theme of Frostivus. The best ones will be released in the game with a new treasure chest.

At first, all entries had to be submitted by November 20. But, following some updates and bug fixes that were affecting the workshop, they decided to to give the creators four more days to polish the sets.

After spending hours exploring the Dota workshop, I present you the best sets I found so far.

If you like a set, don’t forget to vote each single piece in the workshop!

The Watcher of Icewrack

Let’s start with these super cute wards created by MisaMisa. Honestly, I would buy the treasure just for them.

Gyro's Gift Copter

This Gyrocopter’s set is also one of my favorites. Available in three different styles, it can adapt to any situation. Author: DNADota.

Owl Rider

This Batrider caused some discussion on Reddit because the hero isn’t riding a bat :). But, considering the Manta Marauder released in The International 2017 Collector's Cache, I believe that Valve won’t have any issue also with the snowy owl.

A note: both this set and the Manta one have been created by DNADota.

Outfit of the Furtive Frostus

MisaMisa created also a set for Tusk. Father Christmas could punch you this year.
