  • Strange Item Suggestions

    Post here with your ideas for cool things strange items can track. Here's one from Reddit:

    - Tidehunter items measuring the distance they've been dragged.

  • #2
    - Nature's Prophet: Courier snipes (teleport behind enemy lines & teleport back) with Furion
    - Nature's Prophet: # of cut trees
    - Enigma: Amount of damage dealt in a combo (Midnight Pulse + Black Hole)
    - Enigma: # of successfull combos (pulse into blackhole, followed by malefice)
    - Dark Seer: Enemies trapped with Vacuum
    - Ursa: Deaths to Roshan
    - Ursa: Earliest Roshan in xx:xx
    - Kunkka: times crossed the fjord ehm... river
    - Kunkka: Distance sailed on the river
    - Axe: most deadly neutral (the neutral that killed you the most)
    - Axe: enemies killed on the last tick of Battle Hunger
    - Death Prophet: Furthest distance traveled by a ghost that killed a unit (or hero).
    - Huskar: most kills with < 15% hp, < 10% hp and < 5% hp at any point in fight
    - Huskar: Furthest distance traveled with Life Break
    - Morphling: Highest amount of strength morphed necessary for survival
    - Morphling: # of enemies shotgun'd
    - Enchantress/Chen: # of enemy units stolen
    - Rikimaru: # of times being revealed by sentries without noticing it (Caution: may cause paranoia in the long run)
    - Disruptor: # of heroes sent back after they teleported OR a greater distance than x.
    - Any hero with global damage spell (Spectre, Furion, etc.): Amount of daggers canceled via ultimate shortly before teamclash (Tidehunter, Crix, Earthshaker, etc.)

    Do those stats vanish after each game or how exactly does this work?

      You could do that sort of measurement on quite a few heroes that have movement type abilities. QoP, AM, Void -> distance blinked, SpiritBreaker -> distance charged, etc.

      Dark Seer, number of illusions made by walls

      Lots of stat type ones like that are fairly obvious...

      Stranger one: Mouse courier, number of times team/owner has got Cheese

          Enchantress: Distance Impetus spears thrown

          Is there anywhere I can see what strange counters are already in? The ones I know about are kills, victories, treants created and omnislash jumps.

          If it's not already in: Health healed for all heroes with a healing ability.

              Axe: number of kills with cunning blow, also, everytime he kills a hero with his ult there will be a mark on the terrain floor showing where he did it.

                      Strange items track stats. They are similar, if not identical, to the strange items in TF2.

                      Enemies stunned.
                      Chen and Enchantress: Creep abilities used.
                      Skeleton King: Times respawned.
                      Outworld Destroyer: Enemies imprisoned.
                      Silencer: Intelligence stolen.

                      Are there strange couriers? Gold worth of items delivered.

                          Something like that. In TF2 the Strange weapons have the ability to record how many enemies have you killed with it, and there is also some items that can add more, different counters to that weapon. This would be the same thing.
