  • Bots killing Venomancer Wards

    Bots use magic skills in an attempt to destroy Venomancer wards even though they're immune to magic damage.

    Example, Earthshaker casts fissure on a Venomancer ward and it does nothing except for waste Earthshaker's mana.

    I was going to post this as well. Another problem is that even if that worked, they seem to give the Venomancer Wards almost the same priority as enemy heroes. If you place lots of wards around the bots sometimes they will ignore Venomancer and prefer to attack the wards. It's a bit weird.

      I revised the ward-attacking logic, so bots should be better about attacking them when appropriate (shouldn't be able to easily lure them into bad positions), and they won't attack wards if there's a hero that they also want to attack. Will be in the next update, thanks for the report!

        Sorry to bring up an old post, but Venomancer wards are still bugged, I got a sniper low and then when he used shadow blade to turn invisible and escape I placed a wards which he broke invis and attacked. Kind of makes venomancer a bit broken against the AI.
