  • Question about Terrorblade.

    It is a pretty simple one and I didn't see such a thread.
    Why is he the Demon Marauder now and not the Soul Keeper?

    Even his dialogue calls him Soul Keeper, every other hero calls him the Soul Keeper and yet he is something so uninspired as the Demon Marauder?

    Be more biased about it and I'll hurl.

      because Soul Keeper has nothing to do with TB's skillset now? How can he be called a Soul Keeper if he is not calling souls? xD

        Soul Keeper was a nonsense title even back when he had the Soul Steal spell. It's a shitty, generic name that's meant to sound oh so badass but falls flat on it's face doing it. Just like Shadow Fiend, actually, and thank fuck they've removed that one too.

          Surely the Demon Marauder sounds so interesting. Next we will see the Dog Policeanimal and the Cold Lizard who cannot fly.

            "Soul Keeper" isn't uninspired?

              How utterly pretentious of you to call out Demon Marauder on the behalf of a shit name like Soul Keeper. WP sir.

                I think he points the fact that every hero which was ported from DotA still had the original name, exept for those who's names were changed due to copyright (AKA Elder Titan, etc). Since Soul Keeper wasn't copyrighted why valve decided to change it for Demon Marauder?

                  Because Soul Keeper made no sense. None of his abilities have anything to do with souls anymore. It is entirely practical to change his title in this case.

                      Is there a reason "demon marauder" is in lower case in both his lore description and Sunder flavor text?

                        Doesn't Sunder like, swap a piece of TB's and his target's souls with each other?

                            and conjure image, being a copy though his self soul.

                              My speculation is that they made the Lore first then renamed him Demon Marauder to better fit the new backstory.
