Trivia[edit]

  • 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 "Metamorphosis" who was a skillful craftsman and artisan.
