Typos and Inconsistencies Report Thread
As you may or may not notice, there have been a growing number of Suggestions reporting typos and similar things that are basically error and that there are no points in voting against them - as nobody would vote against fixing errors.
Therefore, I've decided that, instead of closing those threads and making you guys send separate e-mail to IceFrog, that it would be better if I would simply collect all those typos here and then send them all at once. Its easier and faster for both sides that way.


1. Describe the typo. (and possible fix, if not obvious)

2. If possible, include a screenshot.


This thread will be updated with each new version.

I was going to post here, but I thought this didn't constitute a typo.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is nothing huge, but could be changed for the sake of making Dota more consistent and professional:

I noticed this in a game when I wanted to swap with an ally for Priestes of the Moon, and when I typed -swaphero, the name in the list said "Mirana".

I'm aware that PotM's name is Mirana Nightshade, but I'm pretty sure most people refer to the hero as Priestess or PotM.

ISSUE: -swaphero menu displays "Mirana" for Priestess of the Moon.
SUGGESTION: Change the name to Priestess of the Moon, or at least Mirana Nightshade

Typo: Mana Leak= http://forums.dota-allstars.com/index.php?showtopic=138640

Casts a powerful inhibiting magic on another unit. Should they cast a spell, a portion of their remaining mana leaks away.
Lasts 22 seconds.

Level 1 - 20% of their remaining mana leaks away.
Level 2 - 40% of their remaining mana leaks away.
Level 3 - 60% of their remaining mana leaks away.
Level 4 - 80% of their remaining mana leaks away.


Fix: This is when you actually learn the skill. However, after you learn the skill it loses how long Mana Leak lasts. I propose that you add in the duration on the tooltip AFTER you learn the skill..

By nBk-Zarent..

EDIT by Grujah: I believe that this is not the right format to report. Read the first post.

Edit: Sir I already edited this and follow the format.. Hope this is correct..
