    Or it could be vibrating particles (or to be more real, the sand on the floor) through heat to generate the black damaging strike.

    I personally think the black thing you guys say about the original reference is nothing more than a visual gimmick kind of thing.

    A burst of lighting is, as the name suggests, white. When you are looking into big burst of light everything around it turns black but the source of the light itself. The blue that is often used to depict it in a artistic way is nothing more than the sky, which is where you commonly see such light...

    Yes, the original is ragna and pronounced lagna. It turned out to be laguna in a free translation just to universalize the name. Both east and west would recognize if someone shouts it. Plus, it is easier to sync lips with voice that way.

    Black lightning would be awesome, like it has been stated there are plenty of blue effects already.

    It was blue in DotA because WC3 didn't have black lightning. The Laguna Blade is BLACK lightning. Youtube Slayers Ragna Blade and you will see the actual spell from its origin.

    Edit: Its RAGNA blade, based off of the word "Ragnarok". In Japanese, there is no "R", its "L" (same in Korean), changing it to Lagna, there is also heavy emphasis on the G, changing it to Laguna. Laguna is the popular saying, but in reality its Ragna, not Laguna.

    Edit #2: As explained above, in the original DotA, her ult would have not been blue.
    Like the original Linken's Sphere (which is actually not called the Linken Sphere, its really spelled Triforce), the sphere should be GOLD TRIANGLES, not BLUE CIRCLE.

    It was blue circle in DotA because WC3 didn't have yellow triangles. The Linken's Sphere is GOLD triangle. Youtube Zelda Triforce and you will see the actual item from its origin.

    Edit: Its TRIFORCE, based off of the words "tri" and "force". In Greek, "tri" means "three" (same in Latin), changing it to Tri, there is also heavy emphasis on the power of 3, changing it to Triforce. Linken's Sphere is the popular saying, but in reality its Link's Triforce, not Linken's Sphere.

    Edit #2: As explained above, in the original DotA, her ult would have not been blue.






    Therefore, please rename the DotA 2 item to Link's Sphere or Link's Triforce, and make it a gold triangle.

    Good points, but VALVe will probably stay away from naming the item Link's Triforce or Links Sphere for copyright reasons. I think the point of this thread is not really because the original Lina Inverse lightning was black and that we should copy everything as it is supposed to be, but rather that black lightning on Lina would be aesthetically pleasing, and quite awesome.

    Some items and abilities may have been named wrongly, but they have become what they are. Millions of lina fans out there will know "Laguna blade" and changing that to ragna blade will do nothing more than cause confusion and damage the nostagic value so many users have formed. Linken's sphere may be based off the Zelda series Triforce, but it is now Linken's sphere.

    Also, the WC3 engine allowed for custom item/ability icons and hero models. Thats how so many new heroes were added with different icon art, so if icefrog wanted golden triangles to be the Linken's sphere icon, he could have done it easily.
