Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • 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" means "Blizzard Cannon" in Japanese.
  • 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 and artisan.
  • Considering Crystalys icon.png Crystalys gives 34.5 + 15% effective damage; if you have 41 or more damage Crystalys is better value for your gold than Demon Edge icon.png Demon Edge.
