How to get the Ancient Dragon King cosmetic in Dota 2
The Ancient Dragon cosmetic comes in the newly-released Dragon's Hoard treasure. But obtaining it is not as simple as purchasing the treasure. It is an Ultra Rare item that comes as a bonus and getting it is a game of chance. Purchase the Dragon's Hoard treasure and you'll have a chance to get the Ancient Dragon King.
If you are eager to get the Ultra Rare cosmetic and are willing to pay a hefty cost, you can directly purchase it from the marketplace. The price varies and at the time of writing, it is averaging around 50 - 60 dollars.
If someone in your friend list wants to gift you the Ancient Dragon King, you can also trade the cosmetic from February 15th onwards.
Will the Ancient Dragon King cosmetic expire?
The Ancient cosmetic will expire after the Lunar New Year season ends. But it will come again in the next Year of the Dragon.
Written in its bio, Valve stated that this cosmetic will only be available during the Year of the Dragon. This refers to the Lunar Calendar and the Year of the Dragon only comes once in 12 years, meaning it will be available next in 2036! Bummer..
The Ancient Dragon King cosmetic is beautiful and what's the use of having it without the ability to show it off. Well good news, once equipped everyone in your game can see the fascinating dragon floating around your Ancient.
