    Updated DOTA 2 Item icons - Visual Comparison

    Here's a visual list of all the new icons compared with the old for feedback purposes.
    Ignore the broken pixels on elvenskin/courier/diffusal. Don't ask.

    Edit: uploaded higher quality image.

    Update: Several of the items have had minor fixes to make them slightly less repulsive.

    It looks awesome! I don't know why there are some complaining?
    btw for the new reaver icon: it looks a bit too dark isn't it?

    Thanks for this. Some of them look amazing, some of them don't. But overall I'd say none of them look worse then the original.

    It looks like armlet's icons were accidentally swapped by valve, they don't make sense

    Some of them are okay. Most are terrible. They look like they came out of a Free to Play Chinese MMO. They have no consistency between them, and most are overly complex and ruins the game's simplistic artstyle.

    My biggest issue is that the items aren't immediately recognizable by WC3 dota players.

    So I quote you bashing the items, and the quote box gives me an entirely different post. Damn ninja edits!

    As for them not being immediately recognizable, few of the D2 icons are similar to the D1 icons anyway - HoT, Talisman, Demon Edge, Hyperstone, Void Stone etc. The friends I know who've moved from D1 recognize items by their price or by searching for the name, instead of the icon.

    seeing them side by side, it's clear that the new ones are all better, but holy christ mjollnir looks absolutely awful and very miniscule compared to maelstrom and even it's old icon. at least ramp up the size on it.

    as for satanic, it's clearly lovecraftian inspired, so that's cool, but i think most people associate lifesteal with 'red' generally, and the abrupt shift of tone is probably off putting

    that, or the colours should be switched at least. the purple glow is just going to be associated with an activated armlet to most players at this point, and a clenched fist is obviously more insinuating of more power than an open hand. just a thought.
