Maybe we should add to the Trivia part that Roshan inspired LoL's "Baron Nashor", considering these two are anagrams of each other.

Ancient Creep[edit]

Would it be beneficial to note that Roshan is an ancient creep? LastTalon (talk) 08:24, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

List of spell interactions[edit]

I want to add this stuff (compiled by me) to the page, but I don't know how to adjust (formalize) it

Easiest way would be to orient yourself to this (spells interaction with couriers) Just copy the template and replace hero names and spell names. It would require 2 sub categories though. One of spells which generally cant target him (including aoe spells), and spells which behave differently against roshan. I just added the categories. Bu3ny (talk) 00:24, 12 December 2014 (UTC)

There is an actual way to have vision in the pit without stepping inside[edit]

Treant Protector's Aghanim allows him to get vision inside Roshan's Pit by upgrading a tree on the cliff right next to the Pit, giving constant and unobstructed vision of the Pit and Roshan in it.

Yes, the article says already that unobstructed/flying vision can give vision from the outside. Bu3ny (talk) 23:34, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Fastest Rosh[edit]

I thought maybe we could add the world record for the fastest Roshan This is the link for the speedrun page

It's not trivia worthy and it's impossible to prove. Trivias are about little facts which people usually don't know about. ~~ Bu3ny (talk) 15:24, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Variable not defined(?) Aegis of the Immortal Reincarnation value1[edit]

In Roshan's Death, under Kill Rewards is the following sentence:

 reincarnate at their death location after a -second delay.

I think it should read "5-second delay."

It is generated from:

 reincarnate at their death location after a { {#var:Aegis of the Immortal#Reincarnation value1}}-second delay. 

I don't know enough about Templates and #var but the following is not displaying any value:

 #var:Aegis of the Immortal#Reincarnation value1

On "Aegis of the Immortal" page I see "abilities_traits" values:

 uid Aegis of the Immortal&reincarnation
 trait1  Effect Delay
 value1  5

Try as I might in learning Templates and #var, I'm not smart enough to figure out how to fix this. If you fix this here (or elsewhere) any insight you could give me about problems like these would be helpful so that I might be able to fix the next problem I see without having to bother anyone else to fix it.

Hi Tommy1TW, I'll take a look at the issue now.
So, this is one of the side effects from the backend migration from Semantic MediaWiki to Cargo, some stuff is still broken from the mass regex changes I made to all pages. Basically, variables are used to get values from templates **in the page that they are declared**, because we can't access the database for values with Template:Show on the same page or template that they are declared. This variable was a result of my catch-all wiki-wide replacements as part of this migration work that I was doing.
As a rule of thumb, we use variables to get data out of templates **in the page that they are written** (this is done by transcluding a ton of vardefines through Template:Ability), and Template:Show to get data out of templates **not** in the page that they are written. -- Sanhard 20:54, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
Thank you! Templates are great for consistent editing and mass changes. Unfortunately, instances like this one are impossible for a casual user (like me!) to fix since I obviously don't know everything about every existing template :) I'd gone to templates help and was lost after seeing that variables are used **in the page that they are declared**, never realizing how to fix it. Once again, thanks for fixing, and especially for explaining Template:Show. Tommy1TW (talk) 20:44, 31 May 2019 (UTC)
