    Putting the Japanese transcription discussion aside, it would probably look totally awesome to have Lina shooting a black Laguna Blade!

    Why does lina from dota 2 have a lightning bolt spell?

    Think of it as being "plasma", which is, as I've heard, "pretty hot".

    The dragon is the one thing that needs an update


    Slave looks like crap compared to stuff like Shaman's badass cobra wards

    Check the small article about Slayers magic : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slayers#Setting_and_magic

    All magicians in Slayers know some shamanistic spells, whatever if they are fire, water, earth or wind spells. I believe (not sure, read the manga 7 years ago) that there isn't any shamanistic specialization (ex. Fire magician) but this magic is a 'core'. Some people have a greater power, as Lina and Lord of Nightmare's spells (and Shabranigdo's one ... SPOIL).

    Hence Lina with Lightning spells is not strange.

    I don't see anywhere in Lina's bio that would explain her using lightning spells.
    Thus it is strange.

    Lighting can reach a temperature of up to 30.000 Celsius. That is 30 times hotter than the average temperature for magma (magma is typically somewhere between 700 and 1300 Celsius).

    The lore tooltip for laguna says that the torrid (hot) air around her can cause lightning.

    Taken from Wikipedia: [Dry Lightning] When the higher levels of the atmosphere are cooler, and the surface is warmed to extreme temperatures due to a wildfire, volcano, etc., convection will occur, and the convection produces lightning. Therefore, fire can beget dry lightning through the development of more dry thunderstorms which cause more fires.

    Not sure if true, especially since how lightning forms is still debated today. But there you have it.


    Dont see any reason why Laguna shouldn't be made black, regardless of whether Lina is Lina Inverse or not. Its simply cool.

    And on the the Lina inverse homage anyway....Dota 2's Lina may have a different back story but clearly still pays homage to Lina Inverse. Dragon Slave, Light Strike Array and Laguna (as its called in english) Blade are the exact same spell names as the original, and Dota 2 Lina's title is still Slayer. Lina doesnt have to EXACTLY be that Lina Inverse to be a nice reference/homage.
