I think a lot, maybe even most, of these bosses would fit as DotA characters. Like, if they were added to Dota and you didn't know they were from another game they wouldn't seem out of place. Which do you think would be the best fit as a Dota Character?

The Gaping Dragon. So you can puke on enemies.

Gonna say Pinwheel because he's not even a boss.

Oh man Sif would be such a cool addition, his charge, his tail-whipping attack. Perfect!

Artorias! I dunno if he would work in DOTA, i'm just voting for him because he's awesome. :)

Going to have to go with Sif.

I voted Gaping Dragon because it's the least appropriate. Glad other people voted with me.

Went with Sif because I think he'd be the most unique looking compared to what I've seen of Dota 2. Gaping Dragon would probably be my second choice, or Kelloggs. But yeah I think pretty much all of these guys would fit in well.

Obviously the answer is Bed of Chaos; immobile and routinely kills the most people on average. Basically sits in the base and does nothing but people still manage to die somehow; a huge morale crusher for the opposing side.

Why not Artorias using Sif as a companion? Like Lone Druid.That'd be cool!

Blighttown walkways.

I chose Priscilla because dat tail.

#17 Edited by TheBluthCompany (453 posts) -

Sif. It's a wolf with a freakin' sword. That is always the right choice. Maybe not for babysitting though...

Nito, Sif, and Quelaag seem like good fits.

Nito could control and summon undead, Sif could be quick and have escapes, and Quelaag could control and have AoE spells.

WOLF WITH A SWORD! I wanna play him as a semi-carry. :3

No wait, he could be an agi-initiator, that would be cooool. Just give him a leap and make R a stunning howl of some kind so he can jump in and rip with AOE sword slashes. Fuck I want this.

Sif would be pretty cool. I think Nito and Quelaag would work well too.

SIF HANDS UP AND DOWN. A wolf with a huge sword in his maw, COME ON!!

#22 Posted by Merricks (29 posts) -

Four Kings.

Shared health bar, separate respawn timer. All four have to die.

Totally overpowered.

I don't think he would be too bad. That melee attack has so much range, goes through solid objects, has knock back which would be a stun and does good damage. He is rather limited in move set and is a bit slow as well.

I went with Quelaag. I think the lava pools that take forever to go away provide good area control for team fights, the short range aoe blast would be useful in team fights too, and her basic melee attack is fairly quick.

I could also see Crossbreed Priscilla as a decent character, with her invisibility and status effects being good early game for bullying in the lane.

The other one I was considering is Sanctuary Guardian. He's fast, can fly, has ranged and melee attacks, can attack from the front and back and causes poison.
