  • Death Prophet Locust Swarm unfitting name?

    I was just wondering why the skill was renamed from Carrion Swarm to Locust Swarm when the skill has nothing to do with locusts. The description currently reads, "Sends a swarm of winged beasts to savage enemy units in front of Death Prophet." The spell icon and animation also display bat like creatures- definitely nothing like locusts or even any insect.

    It would also be great to get some flavor text on her abilities. The recent Patch fixed a bunch of spells missing lore, and the only two left without them are Lifestealer and Death Prophet.

    Bat Swarm seems a perfect name to her 1st skill. yeah i agreed with u , hero spell animation display bat not locust although her 1st skill name is locust swarm

      I was just about to post my own thread about this. Locust swarm is clearly a swarm of bats. Change the name!

          I would prefer they just reverted the name back to Carrion Swarm. But Bat Swarm would work too.

            Well a carrion is just another name for a corpse, so it's not all that fitting either, though it does sound better. Maybe Death Swarm...

            Apparently, the scientific name for bats is Chiroptera, but that doesn't really roll off the tongue, either.

            Bruce Wayne swarm?

                        They had to change the name of the spell, cause carrion swarm is in original WC3. So it would violate Blizzards's copyright or something like that.
