  • Nyx: Telepathic?

    Many of Nyx's line's refer to his words "entering the mind, but not the ear", and his lore backs up the fact that he is a telepathic scarab. However, his animated portrait moves its mandibles when he speaks his voice lines. :O

    Captain Nitpick, AWAY!

    True, BUT it might be like blinking for him(bad comparison I know), just some casual movement stuff, like when flyes do it or ants.

    Captain trying to save the day, AWAY.

      Clearly, we need official word from Valve on this matter.

        Perhaps he uses the mandibles to channel the telepathy... wave... things.

        I, for one, welcome our new Russian overlords.

          He may be telepathic, but I think his species would still talk normally, he is merely blessed by the Nyx godess to have these abilities. Plus the telepathy would mainly refer to his ability to reflect all kinds of damage at an enemy, in pure damage form (using his mind to inflict the damage), and things like mana burn and invisibility (using his mind to make people think he is invisible, but when attacking can no longer hold up such an illusion). Telepathy doesn't just refer to talking through the mind, it involves all purely mental interaction between individuals.

              That's all good and fine, except for these lines:

              My words enter the mind, but not the ear.
              I speak without voice.

                I figured it out, when I was falling asleep yesterday! So basicaly, he talks without voice, normaly it sounds like this: http://www.dota2wiki.com/images/0/0b/Nyx_chitter_03.mp3 http://www.dota2wiki.com/images/f/fa/Nyx_chitter_01.mp3 but since he is telepatic, you hear him talking instead of doing bug sounds.

                  maybe he uses telepathy and just makes you think that he is moving his mouth-like orfaces.

                  Captain Farfetcher moves onward!


                  p.s.: Captain Nitpick, my old nemesis!

                    Good God, it goes even deeper than we though!
