    I've compiled 797 icons from Warcraft 3 and all 280 custom icons (icons that aren't in the Warcraft 3 list) from DotA 1, upscaled to 128x128 size, into 15 albums to be exploitedused by you, the suggestions community.

    Due to the image limit of 40 in this forum, I will not post the images directly in this thread. It's probably for the best. After all, they take up four times as much space as the 64x64 versions.


    For ease of navigation:
    Buildings have the name of their faction ('Human', 'Orc', 'NightElf', 'Undead') as a prefix.
    First stage upgrades have no prefix, second stage upgrades have the 'Upgraded' prefix, and third stage upgrades have the 'Advanced' prefix.
    Beta icons have the 'BETA' suffix.
    Autocast icons have the 'ATC' suffix.
    Passive icons have the 'PAS' suffix.
    Icons related to each other have been renamed to avoid alphabetical separation (E.G. Unburrow changed to BurrowUp, so that it is listed directly after Burrow).
    Icons that are extremely similar (Such as RaiseDead and SkeletonWarrior) only have the first version included.

    Warcraft III Folder01 - AbolishMagic to BattleCruiser
    Warcraft III Folder02 - BattleRoar to CloudofFog
    Warcraft III Folder03 - ClusterRockets to EnchantedCrows
    Warcraft III Folder04 - EnchantedGemstone to FurbolgPolarTracker
    Warcraft III Folder05 - FurbolgShaman to HumanDefense
    Warcraft III Folder06 - HumanFarm to MagicVault
    Warcraft III Folder07 - Magnataur to NightElfRallyPoint
    Warcraft III Folder08 - NightElfRunner to PotionRejuvenationOther
    Warcraft III Folder09 - PotionRejuvenationSmall to ScrollofTownPortal
    Warcraft III Folder10 - ScrollOther to StaffofPreservation
    Warcraft III Folder11 - StaffofPurification to UndeadShipyard
    Warcraft III Folder12 - UndeadSkyBarge to ZombieDalaran


    For ease of navigation:
    Ability icons are arranged them with the Dota 2 Hero name preceding the name of the ability, so that each hero's skills will be grouped together.
    Dota 2 names for skills will (usually) be used instead of the DotA 1 name for abilities.
    Consider that Dota 2 is not in parity with DotA 1 and as such some heroes in one version do have, and/or do not have, skills that are not in the other version.

    DotA 1 Folder1 - AbaddonCurseofAvernus to MedusaStoneGaze
    DotA 1 Folder2 - MeepoDividedWeStand to TreantProtectorLeechSeed
    DotA 1 Folder3 - TreantProtectorNaturesGuise to ZeusThundergodsWrath
    DotA 1 Items


    If you just want to download these all at once,

    Download all upscaled DotA 1 icons here.

    Download all upscaled Warcraft 3 icons here.



    Thanks to IceFrog for DotA.
    Thanks to playdota.com for DotA 1 icons.
    Thanks to Blizzard Entertainment for Warcraft III.

    Enjoy, and please inform me if I've missed something.

    I don't think that's necessary. It would be better to have a 'Suggestions discussion and resource' subforum, since the traffic there would be so low that threads like these would virtually always be on the front page.

    I'm not sure what @summer-penguin, @dewouter and @Dark Rogue are planning right now. Hopefully we get something like that in the future.

    If it were only up to me I would use the dragon thread to store this under resources so it's easily available and people will find it. We are slowly making a decision on things like these.

    This is good. Let me see if I can make a guide for anyone who want to make it borderless or with shaded bordrs (like passive Dota 2 ability icons).

    Is there a way to download all of these at the same time?

    I moved it to Visuals, and had it stickied.
    Hope you don't mind.

    No problem at all. I didn't even realise it wasn't already in this section.

    Hm. Seems to be a problem with postimg.org. Might be that they're down temporarily, so hopefully you can just wait a while and it will be back up. If it's still down in a few days, I'll try and put them up somewhere else.

    Thanks for mentioning that.

    If you need to, you can still download them from the dropbox links.
