Default Fact of the Day


Using Invoker's tornado on an impaled unit that is still flying will result in the unit taking no damage from either spell.

An Invoker with Aghanim under the effect of Essnce aura technically has infinite mana, as your 0 mana Invoke can trigger essence aura. At 17, it is likely to get you a full mana pool from zero in 20 seconds.

It will still take tornado damage. Nothing about impale can prevent that. However, it is possible that the impale damage is evaded.

Watch from 3:40, dazzle had no grave by then for sure, yet tornado-burrowstrike left him unharmed. And burrowstrike=impale in this respect IMO.

You are right that burrowstrike=impale in this regard, but you can't be sure he took no damage. Low levels of quas and wex are one explanation (he healed himself before being burrowstriked and tornadoed, so he had some HP left). Also, we don't see the shallow grave counter (despite the fact that he obviously used it at some point before Waving himself (he had urn debuff and was hit by SK with a blank HP bar and still survived)), so he might still have had it. Replay would be helpful to see the numbers, but there's no way he could've dodged the damage done to him via triggers.

I think due to the impale pause, the cyclone will last longer than usual causing the triggers to deal damage while the unit is invulnerable.

lol cyclone is so unsynergic.

Seems like an easy fix, rather than damaging units after a set time, Tornado could periodically check if the unit is invulnerable, then damage it once it is not.

I'm sorry for that. I totally missed the pause prolonging the cyclone.

Dont know if someone has post this:

Nevermore's will show his true color as Firelord by:
Casting Ghost Scepter or Ethereal Blade and cast a phase boots. You can see a Firelord

Puck's Phase Shift Dodges Balanar's Void Damage but not the slow

Enchant totem's damage does not stack with BKB Avatar.

Force staff could increase the leap distance of Mirana

Casting Lothar's Edge after or when Death Ward of Witch Doctor is Channeling

If you cast a wrong shadowraze or Requiem of Souls from Nevermore, you can stop without letting it cooldown

Puck's Phase Shift Dodges Balanar's Void Damage but not the slow.. Can you still dodge void with phase shift? now that phase can't be auto-casted

Enchant totem's damage does not stack with BKB Avatar.

Force staff could increase the leap distance of Mirana.. total distance is the same

Casting Lothar's Edge after or when Death Ward of Witch Doctor is Channeling.. same goes with any channeling spells like freezing field, epicenter, mana drain, TP..

Enchantress' impetus can kill instantly whenever an opponent uses TP, however one must have the timing of the last second of the portal.

It can kill instantly (the range limit is 2500, so the maximum is 625 pure damage). You are however correct that it won't deal damage beyond that 2500 range.

Did you know that Ball Lightning, Leap,Force Staff, Skewer and other moving spells (Except Charge of Darkness) cannot escape Slark's leash from Pounce? Only Blink Spells such as Blink Strike, Blink, Phantom Strike, Teleportation, and Relocate, etc. can escape it.

If you use blademail while ruptured, as you walk, the damage will just return to bloodseeker.

if charge of darkness is stopped before the pounce leash duration ends, bara will return to slark no matter how far he have run.

using Bottle at fountain while Rearming will reset Rearm. He basically does it again until you stop using Bottle. Spam Bottle while Rearming, Tinker goes into an endless Rearm loop until he finally runs oom and stops.

^That's not limited to bottle. Rearm is channeling, and using bottle interrupts the channeling.

^Wrong. He can only use it before he gets caugt in chronosphere. It will still (kinda) work if chronosphere is cast on him during the "fadetime".

you sure?
I saw yesterday in an internet cafe where bara and SD were trapped in a chronoshere, where bara was charging and got caught in it.
when SD was about to die, the player used his ulti on void, saving SD and also killing void after a few more hits. this was before the chronosphere ended.

Reincarnation such as Aegis or Leoric Ultimate will not proc when if the hero is killed while Hidden with spells like Disruption and Astral Imprisonment nya.

The hero will later respawn holding Aegis if the timer hasn't run out.

fine.
but first, how do you like take control of other hero units? you know, like what some people do in order to test certain stuff in advance mechanics.
like in that other thread of mine called "chen's creeps" where mauran posted that pic.

I dunno how to do it.

so I tested it and seems like it doesnt work... but I still swear I saw that guy's bara charging then getting caught under chronosphere, and still prevented his ally SD from being killed by void via his ulti.

maybe it has to be the enemy void for it to work?

It's simple. You can't cast anything when paused (excluding some transformation issues).
If he casted his ult before Chrono, it will have worked (blink and bash, no attacks though), otherwise it didn't.

I still say I saw him get caught before he used ulti.
but il drop for now. perhaps a bug happened or something? or does the "shift" button do it?

though do I admit that it is possible he used it moments before chrono caught him...

Visual bug perhaps... maybe Chrono has already ended but the animation is still on.

Anti-BackDoor regen trigger wont go on if there's a unit owned by sentinel/scourge/neutral near a scourge/sentinel tower. So you could have a hero owned by sentinel/scourge against a scourge/sentinel tower. Albeit impossible
Neutrals could be lured to towers, but their camps are too far from any tower to make them go near a tower.
