It was long ago when Muerta was introduced to Dota 2. A lot of players liked her, especially her trickshots and revenants. But the New Frontiers update brings out more of her, thanks to the wizard Aghanim. By the way, the update also adds Muerta to Captain's Mode.

The Shard

Let's start with the upgrade offered by Aghanim's Shard. However, we need to take a quick step back and review her ultimate "Pierce the Veil." The ability allows Muerta to transform and become immune to physical damage. She also has all of her attack damage dealt as magical, and gains bonus attack damage and phased movement.

This ability is upgraded by Aghanim's Shard which gives Muerta 30% Spell Lifesteal while Pierce the Veil is in effect. She also gets permanent 2% Spell Amplification for each time she kills an enemy hero during Pierce the Veil or when any enemy hero dies within 925 units.

The Scepter

When Muerta gets Aghanim's Scepter, she gain the ability called "Parting Shot." This allows Muerta to shoot an allied or enemy hero in their soul and separate it from the physical body for four seconds. The soul is then pushed 150 units on separation and is invulnerable. It also can't be targeted, muted, and disarmed. Meanwhile, the body is stunned for the duration and has 50% damage reduction.

Once the effect ends, the soul is forcefully returned to the body which results in a strong dispel that removes negative debuffs and stuns. The soul survives until the end of the effect even if the body dies. This ability doesn't deal damage to allies and Muerta can't target herself.
