      Look at one of satanic threads. There will be 2 types of people: the most of them do not like new satanic and trying to show that they can't understand what is it. The others says that it is kind of an axe or corrupted weapon.

        Ok. Given the benefit of doubt, I will place it beside all the other axes. Well, this will just show how unconventional the santanic looks compared to other axes! Hope Valve realises this!

          It is? Oh, the Diablo reference... ok noted. Without any further references to its type, crossbow seems to fit! Thanks radioactivfishy!

                Shouldn't void stone fit in the "orbs, gems & stones" section? It's a stone after all.
                Perhaps you could extend the "potions" section and make it something like "potions and consumables", and you could fit tp scroll, courier and flying courier and wards there, since wards doesn't seem very fitting for "sticks" section.

                  Hi Matthew, void stone is not a stone. I made the same mistake too. See http://www.dota2wiki.com/wiki/Void_Stone

                  I prefer not to. The point is to classify the items based on their type and not base on DOTA2 actual layout.
                  Making Potions into Potions and Consumable will make it too big and vague a category.

                  Thanks for your suggestion anyway!

                    Players dont instinctively think hmmm I need an AXE! And go and look at the selection of axes. This is not a classic RPG. You have quarter staff, and oblivion staff, and mystic staff, and you have monkey king bar. These are all 'staves' but no one hero would be interested in all of them. Players will not look through the in-game shop grouped by the item's physical type.

                    Item art in dota is simply a pretty addition to actually improving your statistics (obviously). The game is not designed around the logic of what an item is and what it actually does. Why would a helmet give you lifesteal? Why do two hammers made of mithril become a scythe that can reduce armor? Why does a small golden statue increase your damage by 60?

                    Grouping of items by:

                    Impact on agi str and int
                    impact on +dmg and +AS
                    impact on your attack modifier
                    impact on +hp or +mana
                    regenerative items
                    consumable items
                    etc...

                    You would TAG each item for properties. For instance, manta style would be +AGI, +STR, +INT. Then if someone chooses the +AGI category they would see manta style. The list needs to also be seen as a detailed view format with the ability to filter and sort by cost, name, arbitrary stat, etc.

                      Wow. Geez... this was in no way a replacement for the existing shop layout! LOL.

                      We are just arranging to to show the consistency of Valve's design of icons and a chart like this will make it easier to spot illogical differences e.g. Satanic compared to other axes , Boots of Elvenskin compared to other Boots.

                      Please read my first post HMAN911. Guess your suggestions will be better used elsewhere. Thanks anyway.

                      manta style would be +AGI, +STR, +INT.
                      I tried but it is easier said than done. It is not my purpose anyway.

                        UPDATE:
                        ----------------------
                        - Added icon legend
                        - Added Runes
                        -------------------

                        Hi guys!
                        I added some key/legend based on some common visual cues I see among the icons. NOT definitive so pleeease don't bash me if the items don't fit within the legend.

                        Also added runes into the chart since they are considered items that can be picked up in-game but are activated immediately (unless you bottled)
                        Bottle icons are added too.

                        Please view the first post for the updated image.
                        If you spot any mistakes, please shout it out.

                        Once again, comments are welcomed!

                        Cheers!
