  • [Fixed] Earth Spirit spell targeting errors

    Summary:
    Earth Spirit's Boulder Smash and Magnetic Grip can be casted on corpses. Magnetic Grip can additionally be casted on non-invulnerable allied structures.
    Repro for corpses:
    1) Skill either boulder smash or magnetic grip
    2) Target a unit with boulder smash or magnetic grip
    3) Kill the targeted unit before earth spirit casts either spell

    Result:
    Earth spirit kicks or pulls the targeted unit's corpse.

    Expected:
    Earth spirit should not kick or pull the targeted unit's corpse as you cannot select corpses to begin with.

    Repro for structures [Confirmed]:
    1) Skill magnetic grip and walk to a non-invulnerable allied structure
    2) Cast magnetic grip on the structure

    Result:
    Earth spirit attempts to grip the structure putting the spell on cooldown as well as applying a buff on the structures itself (the structure does not move however)

    Expected:
    Earth spirit should not be able to target structures with magnetic grip.

    EDIT: This also goes for wards.

      I can reproduce boulder smash and geomagnetic grip on corpses (make sure you're killing the unit you're pushing/pulling with another unit, not Earth Spirit)

      Grip is also castable on couriers, same bug with towers (they don't get pulled, but spell is cast, goes on cooldown, and mana is used)

        Yes, I did. He just didn't cast the spell when the unit died at all.

          Perhaps you were trying to push or pull a dead hero that's respawning before you reach close enough to cast?

            Unless they did a hotfix on the bug, because i was able to repro the corpse bug every time when i was testing it (not sure about now).
            Only reason i notice is that when i try to get a last hit on a creep and it dies before i kick it, i end up kicking the creep's corpse and getting no money.

            Edit: The bug is still there and i can consistently reproduce it.

              EARTH SPIRIT uses spells on TEMPLAR's(TA) trap.

              spirit use spell's(Boulder Smash and Geomagnetic Grip) on trap => mana lost, skills cd, animation of skill and trap at a standstill.

                    It's true enough, casting Earth Spirit's geomagnetic grip on a TA trap puts the skill on cooldown but doesn't seem to do anything. In fact it's true when casting it on lots of targets: Venomancer wards, Tusk's sigil, Juggernaut ward... et cetera.

                    I think these are all magic immune, so this is probably a duplicate of:

                        The same thread is repeated twice in the KBL, and it's been fixed already last time I checked.

                          Pretty sure you can still target buildings with it. Non-invulnerable buildings.
