No idea, probably just to show off to you friends, who will join Dota later :D

i have the bloodstone of the precursor and it gives me +1 item , in the end of the match, in the description of your item don't say anything?

They aren't useful at all.
They show you how many Dota 2 beta invites you gave out before the game launched.

There are three different Bloodstones;

- Bloodstone of the Ancestor. (You didn't give any invites out.)
- Bloodstone of the Precursor. (You gave out 1 or more invites.)
- Bloodstone of the Founder. (You gave out 10 or more invites.)

Bloodstone of the Ancestor

For Those who came before and sang the word and gathering friends began their crusade, the light of gratitude swirls within the ston.

(not trade-able or use with developing items)

It is a keepsake, if you played while in beta testing you will receive one, if you just played it will be rare if you invited at least 1 friend it will be Mythical and tell you how many invites you sent out. At present this is all it is for "bragging rights" but perhaps they will give it a use at a later stage.

ah i see thx Utrax

so are they aren;t going to be used for later purposes?
StaleDevil Jul 17, 2013 @ 5:02am 
thx Restless i hope it will be useable later on xD as gratitude for Beta Players i guess

bragging rights ... hmmm WHERE IS MY COPYRIGHT!!!

It shows that you played during the beta phase. Perhaps Valve will reward us someday vis the item?

It counts how many gifts you have given others. It's just a display item.
thatguy Jul 17, 2013 @ 5:26am 
you can destroy it for a chance to get a mythical. KEY WORD *CHANCE*
StaleDevil Jul 17, 2013 @ 5:33am 
how did you got that information that you need to destroy the bloodstone for a mythical item?

Does they give you any items or gifts :??
eze2342 Jul 17, 2013 @ 5:57am 
i don't think they will give you an item for destroying it..

Actually there is a small chance to instantly get an item of one higher rarity when u destroy most items; this being one of them. Right click it and click destroy; a window will pop up saying "Delete this item? Deleting this item will permanently destroy it. This cannot be undone. When you destroy this rare item you will have a small chance of immediately discovering one mythical item." This happens when you destroy any item that is equippable as far as I know. I have destroyed about 12 items and have yet to get one back. I'm going to keep this =)

only says "Delete" xD so i don't know on what information you base that one but nope destroy is not in it :P
