Default Hero names and Titles


After stumbling across a number of threads that suggest to change Title names and skill names to better fit the overall theme of the character, I decided to make an extensive list of the ones I've seen and added a few of my own.
This is all in the attempt to make the game DotA sound more professional and more flowing in terms of it's heroes and the themes they bring, as well as remove redundant hero titles or perhaps improve on them (to make them sound more badass, or fit the theme better)
The way I judge on the sound of a heroes name and title, is by sounding it out (Heroes Name) The level (level of Hero) (Title of hero)
E.g. Kardel Sharpeye, the level 1 Dwarven Sniper. IMO, it has a good ring to it =P

Feel free to contribute your thoughts and ideas.
If you'd like to contribute keep to this format to make things easier.
Faction, Primary Attribute, Name/Title
Suggested Name - Suggested Title(Your username)

You don't have to change both Name and title in your suggestion, it can be just one or the other
e.g. Suggestion
Scourge, Strength, Azgalor - Pitlord
Ass-galore - Armpits (GEBnaman)


Finally, before you suggest, please think it through on where the problem in the current one lies and/or how your suggestion is MORE fitting than the current one.







Current Suggestions
Kunkka - Admiral(P.S Admiral is the highest attainable rank in the navy)
  • Current is fine or no suggestions yet
Rexxar - Beastmaster
  • Current is fine or no suggestions yet
Bradwarden - Centaur Warchief
  • Current is fine or no suggestions yet
Raigor Stonehoof - Earthshaker
  • Current is fine or no suggestions yet
Purist Thunderwrath - Omniknight
  • Purist Thunderwrath - Holy Paladin
  • Purist Thunderwrath - Light/Divine Paladin(invul_nerable)
Mangix - Pandaren Brewmaster
  • Current is fine or no suggestions yet
Sven - Rogue Knight
  • Sven - Divine Warrior
Tiny - Stone Giant
  • Current is fine or no suggestions yet
Cairne Bloodhoof - Tauren Chieftain
  • Current is fine or no suggestions yet
Rooftrellen - Treant Protector
  • Rooftrellen - Keeper of the Grove(SanTa ClaWs)
  • Rooftrellen - Ancient Protector/Forest Guardian(invul_nerable)
Io - Guardian Wisp
  • Current is fine or no suggestions yet




P.S These suggestions don't always mean something is wrong with the current one (Although for some, something IS wrong).
Also, it is very subjective, but I won't take suggestions that I personally dislike, since I feel that my judgment is enough to see which suggestions are ridiculous. Providing sufficient reasoning can persuade me however

It would be easier for me if you hadn't listed all the heroes, but just these whose names should be changed.

Sorry. But I would have to say no to all your suggestions. They are just fine. Most players are used to it especially with Lina, Sven and Zeus.

I prefer having original titles over copying the ladder titles (Juggernaut > Blade Master, Sacred Warrior > Troll Berserker). Omniknight is much better and original than Holy Knight.

Default Re: Hero names and Titles

Rooftrellen- Keeper of the Grove (KotG™)
Thrall - Lightning Shaman (cause the orkish mage is called shaman )
Visage - The Gravekeeper (will suit his gravekeeper's cloak. Grave Chill and perhaps rename his ultiamte to Gravekeeper's Servants)
Archilla - Broodmother.
Lesale Deathsting - Venomancer
Terrorblade - Soul Stealer (he doesn't keep any souls right?)
Viper - Venomdrake
Cosmos - Enigma (just a thought)
Arador - Gnoll Hellbringer (sounds badass ) Or Arador - Gnoll Trorurer... anything but Eredar! Eredar = Eredar Warlock.

Some of the suggestions sound nice like Sven and Leshrac, , but some doesnt, like Zeus and Lycan. But some are even too classic to change.

Default Re: Hero names and Titles

It's Ulfsaar not Ulfusaar! How dare you spoil the awesome name of ursa!
Anyway, Warrior is already unique. Change knight to champion instead (chaos/rogue champion sounds cool to me)

Anyway, the only thing imo that needs change is:
-Chen's holy knight. really hate "knight" on a int mage.
-Eredar. Shadow is overused, but i prefer the "gnoll torturer" sugg. just too lazy to give link.
-Your knight davion -> Davion isn't bad too.

Others, PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THEM. no matter how little they make sense to you, imo they are cool (techies>saboteur, techies sounds cooler and smarter. tinker>demolition, demolition makes him sounds like a huge brainless hero blasting things mindlessly).
Only change the ones that needs changing because it is overused, especially "shadow" and "assassin" heroes.

Default Re: Hero names and Titles

I dislike:
Holy Paladin, since Paladin already depicts holy. Paladin would be enough imo.
Mage Slayer, since the current name sounds really awesome.
Pyromancer, since Lina is not completly fire-specific.
Troll Berserker, since cuurrent one is quite fitting for me.
Mercenary, since a Bounty Hunter is usually more skilled. Bounty Hunter also fits better to his skills.
Hellrazer, since it sounds totally over the top. King is not the best fitting, but Hellrazer really sucks imo. Additionally, Leoric has only 1(,5) hell related skill.
The Gnoll, since I prefer an overhaul.

However, I think current Shadow Shaman could have another title, since none of his skills is Shadow-related. I also dislike Thrall's current title, since none of his skills have anything to do with Farseeing.
I don't know anything good for Thrall, but maybe Voodoo Shaman or simply Shaman for Rhasta.

Default Re: Hero names and Titles

only furion's, chen's, terrorblade's maybe need to be changed.
definitely eredar's should be changed, even his name. why didn't u add the thread?
the rest. leave them be. u should read the thread about the origins of the names: such as Avernus is a Mount in Italy, thought to be the gate to the underworld = awesomely fitting.
lycanthrope is the original word for werewolf.

Default Re: Hero names and Titles

Okay here are my comments:

Omniknight: Sorry, but current one sounds a lot cooler and less generic.

Sven: Rogue Knight is really unfitting, but I don't like Divine Warrior that much.
Anti-Mage: Why a name change? Current one is perfect. Mage Slayer sounds worse Imo.

Juggernaut: Juggernaut - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia What's wrong about the name? Again, perfect name (he is a nearly unstoppable force if played correctly), very original, absolutely no problem... Again, Blade Master sounds too generic, pls keep the cool, imaginative and unique names

Morphling: I think I explained often enough why his current title is awesome and fits perfectly fine at these links, no need to do it again.

PotM: Not bad, but current one is okay as well. She's just called PotM all the time and this would destroy the reason for this, so it's more classic.

Zeus: I explained already as well why I prefer the name Zeus (it's just too classic Imo). The title depends on the name you choose.

Furion: Forest Guardian sounds lame. Archdruid would be awesome, TUp for that.

Lina: Anime reference. And the Pyromancer doesn't fit to her ultimate. Slayer is a perfect name looking at her combo with the ultimate, although I don't like it that much. If there are better suggestions, I could agree to changing this name.

Davion: I still prefer Sir Davion over just Davion. It's more unique, absolutely fitting and sounds cooler. http://www.playdota.com/forums/29750...change-davion/

Huskar: Current name fits, but I personally don't really like it. This new name sounds even less cool and more generic though, so for me it's even worse. He's a lot more than just a berserker...

Leviathan: Current title sounds cooler.

Gondar: Bounty Hunter sounds cooler and more fitting Imo.

Ulfsaar: Why? I see no need.

Techies: Hell freaking no. Why the fuck would you ruin one of the best names in dota?!?

Visage: Visage is one of the coolest names Imo. I don't get the current title, so I'm not sure, but I like your suggestion partially. Sounds cool, but I'm not sure if it's that fitting.

Dazzle: Dazzle is an awesome name, though slightly ironic as he's a Shadow Priest, so he can't really dazzle someone. However with his mask, his staff and his skills he can still be dazzling xD TLDR, I really like his name. Your argumentation is like saying a hero shouldn't be named Ben because that's too similar to Sven. It makes no sense at all and isn't a good reason. Shadow Priest is also pretty much okay.

Leshrac: Oh pls, stop ruining the coolest and most creative names in dota.

Abba: Wikipedia can be very informative. I think it fits perfectly.

Lycanthrope: It's called Lycanthropy, so Lycanthrope fits a lot better than simply Lycan Imo.

Leoric: Hell freaking no. Wtf is this shit seriously... Epic classic perfectly fitting name - he has even a crown on his head - what do you want more?!? Hellrazer just sounds worse and doesn't fit that much.

Broodmother: Broodmother is a perfect, fitting, creative and cool title, so pls keep that. Name could be changed, but I'm not sure into what. Tsuchigumo sounds kind of unfitting for a spider in wc3 Imo.

Eredar: I'd go for Gnoll Torturer suggestion: http://www.playdota.com/forums/27800...noll-torturer/

Was unsure which hero name/titles people wanted to change, so I just added all of them. Sorry for the inconvenience, but rather than going through heaps of posts in the visuals thread, I was hoping that this would become a Sticky or whatever it's called (Just like the typos and inconsistencies thread) , so that the other suggestions are left to much technical things. (Spell Details, Terrain, Models etc.)
I just like to organize things in folders/categories.

I see what you're getting at. DotA is far from a ladder game and so we should try and be as original and creative as possible. (The same can't be said for HoN or LoL...Just had to bag them out a bit )

All comments are appreciated, and please minimize the flaming, these are only suggestions btw hehe.

BUMP!

Purist : I prefer simple "Paladin". Holy is rather abundant there IMO

Yurnero : T-Up on this.

Mirana : T-D. Classic title is classic

Furion : Archdruid sounds ok.

Gondar : Urgh no. I prefer Dranei Hunter / Ninja (Hell yeah!)

Others are meh or already suggested

What are the chances of this becoming a sticky, since it'll remove the need for people to be posting up more 'Title/Name Changes'

Default Re: Hero names and Titles

Omni-Paladin is enough.

Sven-he is not a pure holy as he is angry or very mad on his buffs.

Roof-he isn't a druid as it druid has a greater power to protect.

Magina-Slayer was taken from Lina and the acronyms would be MS instead of AM which was taken to movement speed.

Yurnero-Juggernaut was about unstoppable,Bladefury,healing ward and Omnislash makes him a real Juggernaut.

PotM-changing actual or ingame will never be t-up.

Furion-double overused and Prophet sounds fine.

Lina-Current was taken from anime.

Thrall-again,changing actual or ingame will never be t-up.

Davion-Davion is enough for the name.support.

Huskar-He isn't only a berserker but he has a shamanism that supports the player (Inner Vitality).

Tide-suggested is an actual name.support.

Gondar-Bounty Hunter means hunting a target for the money as bounty,he has track and so that makes him a real bounty hunter.

Void-people always call Void and so you gave us a longer words to say.

Ursa-a bit null as it was taken already but he is the real champion of Ursa.

Techies-like Void,people always call Techies and so you gave us a longer words to say.

Dazzle-he does dazzling and he has shadow related and caster.

Leshrac-the name was creative and it's phrase sounds better.

Tinker-another actual or ingame changing,I will never t-up.

Lycan-Lycanthrope is the original name of acronyms Lycan and so no.

Leoric-the name was from Diablo and so completely no.

Broodmother-like Leshrac,the phrase sounds better and creative.

Terroblade-he transfers soul and so spul stealer doesn't fit especially soul steal's name.

Venomancer-he gave poison to the target by launching it in the air instead of bite it as he doesn't have sharp teeth.

Viper-another actual/ingame name again,it is no.

Gnoll-nothing to say.

Oh no that's a typo. My keyboard is playing tricks on me and i just copy/pasted what i wrote in my last sugg. and didn't see that Yes i meant Keeper of the Grove

Default Re: Hero names and Titles

I suggest that you go remove the ones that are t-downed by a lot already (techies, boush) Anyway i support purist->paladin, visage->gravekeeper, Roof->keeper of the grove and davion ones.
For dazzle, we still have the word 'dark' unused so maybe dark priest/ Troll dark priest?
And please thrall is not a shaman. "warchief" is good and unused. so my sugg is storm warchief (thunder is unwcish imo)

other than that.....
No for tb, we already have lifestealer. no for viper, netherdrake is good. Null for lesale. deathbringer sounds cooler.

Roof-he isn't a druid as it druid has a greater power to protect.

Magina-Slayer was taken from Lina and the acronyms would be MS instead of AM which was taken to movement speed.

Yurnero-Juggernaut was about unstoppable,Bladefury,healing ward and Omnislash makes him a real Juggernaut.

PotM-changing actual or ingame will never be t-up.

Furion-double overused and Prophet sounds fine.

Lina-Current was taken from anime.

Thrall-again,changing actual or ingame will never be t-up.

Davion-Davion is enough for the name.support.

Huskar-He isn't only a berserker but he has a shamanism that supports the player (Inner Vitality).

Tide-suggested is an actual name.support.

Gondar-Bounty Hunter means hunting a target for the money as bounty,he has track and so that makes him a real bounty hunter.

Void-people always call Void and so you gave us a longer words to say.

Ursa-a bit null as it was taken already but he is the real champion of Ursa.

Techies-like Void,people always call Techies and so you gave us a longer words to say.

Dazzle-he does dazzling and he has shadow related and caster.

Leshrac-the name was creative and it's phrase sounds better.

Tinker-another actual or ingame changing,I will never t-up.

Lycan-Lycanthrope is the original name of acronyms Lycan and so no.

Leoric-the name was from Diablo and so completely no.

Broodmother-like Leshrac,the phrase sounds better and creative.

Terroblade-he transfers soul and so spul stealer doesn't fit especially soul steal's name.

Venomancer-he gave poison to the target by launching it in the air instead of bite it as he doesn't have sharp teeth.

Viper-another actual/ingame name again,it is no.

Gnoll-nothing to say.
You T-Down any suggestions that are different from In-game names
"another actual or ingame changing,I will never t-up"

but you like Yurnero - Juggernaut, while my suggestion is actually using the original title of the hero.
Contradictory your statements are and they're making me very confused (Not Trolling, I'm seriously trying to understand what's in your head)

Some more comments:

Rooftrellen: Warcraft III - Night Elves -&gt Units -> Keeper of the Grove That's a Keeper of the Grove, Rooftrellen isn't one.

Thrall: Far Seer fits perfectly to Glimpse and Kinetic Field, so I don't think there's any problem. Thunder Shaman on the other hand wouldn't fit that much to those two skills, so it isn't really fitting better at all. I prefer Far Seer, because it sounds cooler and Shaman is kind of (over)used.

Davion: That's not my suggestion, better link the thread

Void: I like both, so I'd rather keep it as it is.

Visage: Gravekeeper sounds kind of cool, but isn't perfectly fitting, he doesn't really keep (in the sense of protecting and maintaining) the graves

Tinker: How should Tinker be a name? It's a title and a perfectly fitting one Imo.Sounds cooler than "Demolition Expert", which sounds a bit clumsy so to say.

Terrorblade: I don't find either of these two really fitting: He doesn't really keep souls, but he doesn't only steal souls either. He kind of manipulates them, but Soul Manipulator would sound rather lame as well.

Veno: Although he doesn't always sting enemies to death, this name sounds quite cool. I'm fine either way.

Viper: Nether drake - WoWWiki - Your guide to the World of Warcraft Ladder title and pretty fitting Imo.

I know the keeper of the grove already, but the name is just too cool and original to neglect

How does glimpse and kinetic field relate to far seer? the ladder one got the name coz he simply have a far see (or sight? w/e) skill (which i believe you've known already).

Other than the first 2, i agree with you

KotG: Well, it sounds cool. Someone suggested it for a Leshrac overhaul afaik. I just don't feel that it's fitting.

Far Seer:
Eh, perhaps I'll be contradicting myself a bit, but something I even forgot earlier on:

They are shamans. Far seers are shamans, just better. That means both lightning skills perfectly fit to Far Seers, so that argument is already wrong.

Far Seer doesn't necessarily mean he has a the ability to see places far away, it has further, more literal meanings.
Glimpse: Sending an enemy back in time, although you might not have seen where he was a few seconds ago, because it is an event distant in both space and time. I think this ability is perfectly related to a Far Seer.

Kinetic Field: Now this one is more discussible. The skill might not directly link as an ability specifically for a Far Seer, but I would say such an ability would be best for a Far Seer. With the power to foresee the future, he can drastically improve the placement of this slightly delayed skill and cast it at the right time at the right place. Besides:

This is spiritual shamanistic magic at its highest level, I doubt any normal Shaman would be able to cast such an epic skill, so I think again this speaks for Far Seer.

Scourge, Strength, Slardar-Slithereen Guard
Slardar, Naga Myrmidon/Naga Royal Guard
Yes they are boring but fit him better and wtf is a slithereen anyway?
Neutral, Strength, Knight Davion-Dragon Knight
Davion, Dragonic Knight
Sounds cooler and gets rid of the redundant Knight in his name.

Yeah dude i know what Keeper of the Grove is but if you think about it- treant is a real keeper of the grove! He has the sentinels, healing roots (that can heal towers), as the original Keeper of the Grove he has entangle- but it's really massive and besides Keeper of the grove has a cool abbreviation (KotG). I think it would fit him perfectly, sounds nice and is unused so unless there's a Keeper of the Grove (original model) coming up in one of the next DOTA versions, i see no reason why this shouldn't be implemented .

Thrall: Far Seer fits perfectly to Glimpse and Kinetic Field, so I don't think there's any problem. Thunder Shaman on the other hand wouldn't fit that much to those two skills, so it isn't really fitting better at all. I prefer Far Seer, because it sounds cooler and Shaman is kind of (over)used.

Seer is overused too (dark seer). Glimpse does fit the theme... Ok ok how about Lightning Seer? Fits perfectly

Davion: That's not my suggestion, better link the thread

Void: I like both, so I'd rather keep it as it is.

Visage: Gravekeeper sounds kind of cool, but isn't perfectly fitting, he doesn't really keep (in the sense of protecting and maintaining) the graves

I sugg. this cause 2 of his spells have "grave" in their names, one is Gravekeeper's cloak and i hope his ultimate can be renamed to Gravekeeper's servants.

Tinker: How should Tinker be a name? It's a title and a perfectly fitting one Imo.Sounds cooler than "Demolition Expert", which sounds a bit clumsy so to say.

And can you imagine one of the gyes suggested Clockwerk Goblin to be remade to Goblin Terrorist

Terrorblade: I don't find either of these two really fitting: He doesn't really keep souls, but he doesn't only steal souls either. He kind of manipulates them, but Soul Manipulator would sound rather lame as well.

Well he steals souls, he exchanges souls (by stealing the target's soul and replacing it with his own)... mirror image and Metamorphosis need their tooltips remade. But generally as you said Soul Manipulator sounds lame so Soul Stealer is best.

Veno: Although he doesn't always sting enemies to death, this name sounds quite cool. I'm fine either way.

Just think Deathsting fits better a venom-monster than Deathbringer that sounds evil (meaning undead) and/or kinda demonic.

Viper: Nether drake - WoWWiki - Your guide to the World of Warcraft Ladder title and pretty fitting Imo.

Well you know Netherdrake in Ladder is not venomous IMO. He's a demon. In dota Viper is exactly another venomous hero so Venomdrake would fit better IMO.
