One of my team mate used the dagon for axe once. It is really funny yet effective. He leveled max the "hunger", "bought urn of shadow" and "dagon". buffed the urn and hunger to enemy then activate dagon. he is not chasing the enemy after, he's sure the enemy will die anytime. cant forget that good game. lol everytime he kill someone,.... dagon is so flexible... i like this item....

There is no passive effect on dagon.
Contrary to the description.

Done :D

Add Dagon level 2/3/4/5 with this and upgrade recipe cost accordingly.
I see that the image changes a bit, in that the bulb opens a bit everytime you buy the recipe, so might need to add new item description for them

Not so much, I think. BH needs physical DPS, like Desolator or MKB. Besides, Dagon would cost him a lot of mana that he can only afford very late game. If you have that much money to Dagon, just buy Divine Rapier =)

You realize that the carry isn't going to get 100% of the kills, correct? Dagon helps damage output, which is something you need as a caster...

Yeah, but Lina has a metric ****ton of damage as it is. Dagon would be a bit overkill, wouldn't it? I'd much rather her have an aura item or some kind of utility slow/blink, etc than more damage.
