  • [Fixed] Mjollnir buff isn't refreshed when recasting on same unit

    I was doing some random tests and noticed that if I apply the Static Charge armor, then use refresher, then re-use Static Charge while the buff is on, the timer won't reset, but the cooldown will be set. That means I won't get a new Mjollnir active buff, but I do have to wait for the cooldown even though nothing happened after refreshing.

    Is this behavior consistent with D1 ? I expected the duration timer to be refreshed.

    Small update. li.lo managed to help me test the D1 behavior (thanks for that ) and provided a small video and some observations:

    From the test in DotA 1 (Testmap 6.79c) i can tell you that you can have two Static Charges at the same time which dont share cooldown or override eachother (they wear off independently).
    Further i tested if multiple Static Charges procs multiple Lightnings on one attack
    but it just increased the chance of reflecting a Lightning.
    Based on his tests, there are more incorrect interactions that just what I observed:
    - the timer doesn't reset in D2
    - charges are independent one from another
    - since you can't "stack" (so-to-speak) them, you don't have the increased chance of proc-ing

      I think they won't make it stacking if they fix this at all. There are many things which stack in DotA1, but don't stack and just override in Dota2.
      Please, just call me buny.

        The problem is that it is not even overwrites it. Casting Mjollnir on target with the Static Charge will just waste mana and cooldown.

            This is really annoying. Can't run 2 mjollnirs in a team and prolong the buff on your initiator.


            Shouldn't be too hard to fix. Just make recasting it refresh the buff, just like how most other buffs and debuffs work.
