  • Summer Scrub: Skills & Items with missing flavor text (and suggestions if desired)

    A number of skills and items are missing flavor text ever since the 7.20 update that introduced new items and skills for various heroes as well as several new Aghanim's Scepter abilities recently introduced. While its understandable that such things would slip between the gaps, it would be a quick adjustment to add some flavor text for consistency and appeal. I provided a list of the items and skills missing tooltips, and if it is helpful, I provided some suggestions/possibilities of my own. They could be quickly applied during this Summer Scrub.

    Quick List
    Crown
    Yasha and Kaya
    Kaya and Sange
    Ring of Tarrasque
    Holy Locket
    Abaddon: Curse of Avernus
    Anti-Mage: Counterspell
    Bounty Hunter: Jinada
    Chen: Divine Favor
    Clinkz: Burning Army
    Dazzle: Bad Juju
    Doom: Scorched Earth (a recent update removed its previous flavor, but it still works perfectly well)
    Huskar: Inner Fire
    Keeper of the Light: Will-O-Wisp
    Lone Druid: Spirit Link
    Meepo: Ransack
    Outworld Devourer: Equilibrium
    Pangolier: Lucky Shot
    Spirit Breaker: Bulldoze
    Tusk: Tag Team
    Arc Warden: Rune Forge
    Grimstroke: Dark Portrait
    Spectre: Shadow Step
    Templar Assassin: Psionic Projection
    Tiny: Tree Volley

    Items

    Crown

    Interwoven with ironwood, it is perfectly balanced despite its simplicity, and easy to augment further.

    Yasha and Kaya

    Yasha and Kaya, when attuned by starlight and used together, become a very dynamic combination.

    Kaya and Sange

    Kaya and Sange, when attuned by sunlight and used together, become a very potent combination.

    Ring of Tarrasque

    A scarlet ring infused with the blood of a legendary behemoth.

    Holy Locket

    Despite being a failure at its original purpose of mimicking the function of particular aegis, it still strengthens the regenerative properties of the bearer.

    Heroes

    Abaddon: Curse of Avernus

    Upon the fourth chime, a chilling silence shall ensue to hasten their demise.

    Anti-Mage: Counterspell

    Years of meditation and obsession with revenge allows the Anti-Mage to reflect that which he despises most.

    Bounty Hunter: Jinada

    Whispering an enchantment he learned from Soruq to his faithful blades, Gondar targets vital tendons while severing pursestrings simultaneously.

    Chen: Divine Favor

    The regenerative blessing of Obelis is strengthened within the newly converted.

    Clinkz: Burning Army

    After years of absorbing the life of inferior beings, such hellfire can take a form more befitting his legendary archery prowess.

    Dazzle: Bad Juju

    While exposure to the Notl Realm further augments Dazzle's vast potential, it ends up being debilitating to those less familiar.

    Doom: Scorched Earth (a recent update removed its previous flavor, but it still works perfectly well)

    The Fallen One spreads destruction in his wake, sparing none from the flame which sustains him.

    Huskar: Inner Fire

    An explosion of inner fury keeps Huskar's enemies well within harm's reach.

    Keeper of the Light: Will-O-Wisp

    Calling upon an old friend from ages past, Ezalor brings forth the light in all its glory. Onlookers, on the other hand, are simply mesmerized by such a spectacle.

    Lone Druid: Spirit Link

    The epitome of admiration and determination between equals.

    Meepo: Ransack

    What’s the difference between harvestin’ gems and yer innerds? Nothin’, I tell ya.

    Outworld Devourer: Equilibrium

    The crystals of the Outworld produce arcane power, and the Harbinger channels it to augment his own destructive capabilities.

    Pangolier: Lucky Shot

    Donté has never been one to play it safe.

    Spirit Breaker: Bulldoze

    Barathrum's tenacity is unmatched, proving him to be an unstoppable force.

    Tusk: Tag Team

    Stay a while, and put ‘em up!



    Scepter Abilities

    Arc Warden: Rune Forge

    At times, a hint of inexplicable craftsmanship serves as the true means to an end.

    Grimstroke: Dark Portrait

    Only a true artist such as himself can craft a masterpiece that is superior to the original subject.

    Spectre: Shadow Step

    An isolated instance of hysteria and torment does occasionally have merit…

    Templar Assassin: Psionic Projection

    Lanaya can and will safeguard the secrets, no matter where the necessity lies.

    Tiny: Tree Volley

    Watch out for falling… trees? That can’t be right.
