        • Alright, I totally missed the items, they look pretty awesome. It's really interesting to see what they are beyond the icons. Oh and Eaglesong is a horn. Used to be a bow in the earlier versions. It's written in the lore, apparently there wasn't enough space to properly draw it.

          And finally we know what that old Satanic looked like.

          Nothing that even remotely resembles anything ever.
          Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.


          Visit the Dota 2 Lore Megathread. Renovation ongoing.


          • Wait, the Relic is a broken sword? I always thought it was some kind of staff or something.


            • epic thread. Concept art > the current models. However Razor concept looks like he is shitting lightning D=

              Take a look into the mirror! You think you are completely unfailable. With your limited knowledge, you think that you know more than someone who is very deep in the matter/an expert.

                The sword is a low-violence remodel for the Chinese client.

                  Silly me. I just checked the wiki for the current icon and it appears to be just a golden skull, not even a staff :/

                            • People remember this wall from the 'A Look Forward'-thread?

                              Second row, first picture: Brewmaster with a red head. Also lefthanded for some reason.

                              Fourth row, to the right: Alpha Omniknight (man, I miss one-handed Omniknight)
                              Fifth row, to the right: Alpha Weavers (larger picture at the bottom of my post)
                              Final row, second picture: green Nyx

                              Second row, first picture: alpha picture of Elder Titan? Maybe from when he still was Tauren Chieftain?
                              Third row, first picture: skinny Lion
                              Third row, second picture: Witch Doctor?

                              Final row, third picture: someone wanted more Mirana concept art, right?

                              Here's also some Tiny concept art:

                              And two alpha Weaver designs:

                              All credit for these pictures goes to iTz SLammi. There are a few more pictures in the gallery I linked, but those are ones we've already seen somewhat larger.

                              • Thanks a lot Hefaistus.

                                By the way, Tiny Concept art is way better.
