Trivia[]

  • In the original DotA, this item was called the "Buriza-Do Kyanon", a reference to a weapon (unique ballista) in Diablo II. "Buriza-do Kyanon" is the romaji transliteration of "Blizzard Cannon" when written in Japanese katakana.
  • Daedalus is the Latin transcription of the Greek "Daidalos" which means "clever worker" in Ancient Greek and Daedalus is also one of the characters in Ovid's "Metamorphoses" who was a skillful craftsman artisan, and the father of Icarus.
