    Odd thread, people don't use their full names afaik

    It's meka, agha, dagon, ghost, eul often called e-ul intentionally saying it slower with emphasis on e so others won't miss it, and nobody buys mjollnir

            Eul is E-yol, like the shout in Skyrim.

                      But I wonder in DOTA 1 it changes a hero into a chicken and in DOTA 2 it changes a hero into a pig. Why is it called sheepstick instead of pigstick or chickenstick?
                      In warcraft 3 the sorceress unit had the ability to turn you into a sheep, and a "baaa" bleeting sound would be played when that happens.

                      So thats where the word sheep comes from.

                        Mjollnir - I pronounce it as em-yol-near
                        Mekansm - "mek"
                        Eul Scepter - "yul"
                        Aghanim - "septa"
                        Scythe of Vyse - "hex" or "sheep"

                          Mechanism sounds retarded, anyway its simply Meka, or "Mekansm" like you write it.

                            Mjollnir is from Norse mythology, so the J is pronounced as if it is a Y
                            Mekansm is some retarded shit that I don't understand, should be pronounced meck-an-sum or me-can-sum

                              What me and my friends used to call these:

                              Mekansm = mek, mecha, mechanism
                              Eul's scepter = yewl, e-yewl
                              Mjolnir = me-yol-near, em-jol-neer (joke pronunciation)
                              scythe of vyse = goo-in-sue
                              Daedalus = boo-ree-sah
