Default Clockwork Battery Assault


Why does this ability not knock heroes out of stealth? It should at least kick TA out of her stealth.

Ya, it's annoying it doesn't hit invisible heroes like any other aoe skill. Best you can do is use cogs to knock TA out of invis.

If that's the only way than it's an awful solution. It's supposed to mini-stun after all.

That's besides the point. If it's a mini-stun it should knock people in stealth (especially if it's channeled) out.

Mini-stun is just mini-stun, Battery Assault needs a target to work. The notes from the wiki:

- Remains active even if Clockwerk is disabled.
- Discharges a total of 14 shrapnel.
- Total damage: 210/490/770/1050.
- Does not hit invisible units.

Play heroes with AoE if you want to hit anyone in stealth.

It's not an AoE spell.

Right, thanks. It is canceled by stuns and other disables, though, provided they hit him.

In the wc3 engine, stunning has no effect on stealth as a status. It may interrupt some skills that give invisibility, but it does not have any implicit ability to hit invisible units or turn them visible.

Sandstorm's invis has nothing to do with channeling. He's only channeling the damage, that's why you still deal damage when you got dusted or smth.

?????

Sandstorm is a channeling spell, the invis part included. That is why people counter it with ground target and AoE stuns. If thr invis wasnt channeling, hed still be able to stay invis after a stun, just like Lanaya.

@OP: if you want Battery Assault to hit invisible targets, get dust. That is why Clock is an initiator anyway.
