Bottom rune on the Sentinel side of the river, you can see the rune at a certain angle in daytime... like this...

1350


In DotA 1 this is not possible due to 2 trees being placed right where Windrunner is standing.

Wow I havent even noticed this but yeah. There's supposed to be trees there. This might have been a balance adjustment as Scourge used to have an advantage over the bottom rune compared to Sentinal in DotA. They could spot it from their ledge, where as Sentinal had to walk a whole lot longer to get vision of the rune. Only reason I can think of

I don't think so, Scourge and Sentinel have many advantages and disadvantages going for them. Specifically for middle lane, Sentinel is a lot harder to gank compared to Scourge. I think this is just an oversight.

Actually its much more fair now. Scourge had an advantage over runes. With those trees removed this advantage disappears.

Found a few other spots as well, not sure if some of them are legit, but I'll just post it here:

BenSkysong - These are all the same spots that you can see the rune from in Dota 1 during the day.

also in my opinion its correct tweak - right now both mid players gona have equal access to the runes

Bump, found this too, simply unfair.

Yep, it's not a bug.

i want the trees. Sentinel is harded to gank, so Scourge should have easier access to the bottom rune
