    With the permission from God of Death, I'd like to continue the thread above for everyone to mindstorm.

    I took my own leisure to modify a few names. Bold is GoD's and his modified name, italic is mine, and there are a few ones with credit I found in the thread.

    Since the forum doesn't allow me to post more than 40 images per post, here are Strength heroes:

    Huskar - Bloodforged Scepter / Heartrend Scepter
    Bristleback - Spined Scepter
    Magnus - Cleaving Scepter
    SF - Scepter of the Fiend
    Viper - Two-fanged Scepter
    Storm - Scepterific!
    Enchantress - Lush Scepter (?)
    Skywrath - Eerie Scepter
    Leshrac - Scepter of the Sullen Storm
    Invoker - The First Scepter

    Invoker feels like a better candidate for Prodigious Scepter than OD.

    This is a very cool idea, but it almost seems logical that it should also accompany different icons as well (at least the color scheme), and I feel like that would be way too much work to implement.

    But here's what isn't, how about next to the Scepter names, the spell itself also gets renamed? For instance, "Black Hole" would become "Quantum Singularity"

    Renaming spells will make it more confusing for players.

    There is no need to put different icons. And I still prefer Aghanim's visual effects like in old DotA.

    Sadly visual effects won't ever be a thing probably, since they are exclusively a part of cosmetics now. And I doubt there would be any confusion, most new players don't even notice spell names, we are in a sad age where MOBA spells are reffered to as QWER.

    I think Alchemical Sceptre for Alch would be better. Or Aureus Sceptre (named for the gold Roman coin which was worth 25 Denarii). What about Transmutation Sceptre?

    Mb Liquefied Scepter? Because he melts the scepter down. Aureus sounds cool but the reference is hard to catch.
