  • Frost Arrows giving range to melee

    Working as intended or bugged as fuck?

  • #2
    Im fairly sure this is intended, and it works with pretty much all orb attacks as well.
    (Searing arrows, impetus, Etc...)

      Because they added the range of orb effect in a different code (For Viper the normal attack range is 575 and his orb is 600 range) so i'm not surprised if orb effects add range
      My English is not great and i know it

        I'd like to bump this, because I don't think it's intentional.

          I personally hope they don't remove this even if it is unintended; I think it's a fun part of this game mode.

            I personally don't see a need to remove this either.
            Heroes are re-defined in AD anyhow, yes giving a ranged attack to AM in normal would be absurd, but giving it to a re-defined AM? Not really so.

            Not to mention it still has loads of drawbacks, you can't deny with it, you can't attack towers with it (Unless it's Searing Arrows) and many don't allow casting on magic-immune either.

            It adds a fun little twist in my opinion, though due to how odd the interaction is I wouldn't blame Valve for removing it.

              It's so bizarre that I doubt Valve intended it. It does really give a huge buff to melee in lane. Last hitting is the easiest it will ever be, because the projectile is instant (actually instant, unlike Sniper). I think it should be fixed just because it changes the entire range vs melee dynamic too much.

                lol Warpath+Fiery Soul+Sticky Napalm+Aftershock does that too, trust me, but are you going to prohibit that too?

                  Wrong.
                  Impetus does not give ranged attack to melee heroes. Personally tested and messed my build. Do not claim wrong infos unless you are sure about it.

                    You tested it wrong so kindly don't claim wrong infos kthxbye. You have to manually cast them then they do give attack range.

                      Having to cast manually is another major bug having said, what I speak here auto-triggered won't work the way it supposed to be.

                        lul k just... why the hell did you claim it doesn't give ranged attack at all?!

                          IMO, this should remain this way.

                            It's terrible. Having a PL or Jugg right click people to death with instant range with no projectile is without a doubt broken. There are power combos then there is just this nonsense. I don't mind them hitting like bricks in melee but this is obscene.

                              Think it was an ursa last night... had frost arrows and abbadon's passive as well. Anybody in range of him was dead.
