Hero icon[edit]

The hero icon is outdated. Here's the up to date icon. http://www.cyborgmatt.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/medusa.png

Trivia mistake?[edit]

In the original story Medusa wasn't 'attacked'. She was raped. Also, you can argue whether Athena curses her or blesses her. If I remember correctly, she prays to Athena and she takes away her beauty so she won't be 'attacked' by anyone ever again.

Profile picture[edit]

Guys, there's a better profile pic of Medusa from the Valve servers: http://media.steampowered.com/apps/dota2/images/heroes/medusa_full.png Anyone knows how to replace the old one with this?

Dodging Stuns With Splitshot[edit]

I've heard that the transformation time from split shot has been removed in Dota 2, which means you can't dodge stuns with it anymore. Is this true? If so, that info should be taken out of the page. --Pigbuster 01:20, 11 January 2013 (UTC)


Mana Shield and Damage Block[edit]

According to this article from PlayDota.com, damage block DOES stack with Mana Shield: http://www.playdota.com/forums/showthread.php?t=96250 Why does the wiki state otherwise? Thanks. --ChuChuTrain 10:20, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

I want to add a note to Mystic Snake[edit]

It cannot be avoided by blinking or going invisible (not disjointable), few people seem to know about it

Add Durable as a role?[edit]

I think Durable should perhaps be a role for Medusa because of Mana Shield. Can someone with more experience than me weigh in on this? The preceding unsigned comment was added by 86.177.102.88 (talk) • (contribs)

The role section is intended to show the exact roles defined as in-game. If you have a grievance with a hero's listed roles, you may wish to post to the developer forums. -- Outworld Devourer icon.png Seven Five Seven 00:41, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Split Shot damage reduction is only applied to base damage[edit]

It seems that the damage reduction from activating Split Shot is only applied to her base damage (i.e. those based on her stats), and +damage from items is not reduced. Can someone knowledgeable please verify this and edit the notes for the Split Shot section if it is true?

BKB and Stone Gaze[edit]

While Stone Gaze goes through BKB can BKB remove Stone Gaze if a unit is affected before becoming magic immune like the old Stone Gaze?


Mystic Snake Damage Type and Bounce Behaviour[edit]

First of all, I suggest adding "Pure" as a conditional damage type to Mystic Snake. Secondly, are the bounces of Mystic Snake randomly determined or does it always bounce to the next closest unit? Psion1C (talk) 13:56, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
