  • [Confirmed] Magic stick & Invisibility

    Magic stick/wand will not get charge from broodmother casting spawn broodling while webbed, same for other spells casted from invisibility but within stick range,
    the mechanism works hero get revealed and cast spell so it should count.
    is it bug or not ?

    Fog of war units do not give you charges, was a change in a dota patch a while ago. I'm assuming Fog of war means can't be seen heroes.

      Fog of War classifies area beyond trees, obstacles blocking sight, uphill terrain and area out of sight range
      there was no fog of war.. I am standing ground in enemy broods web she stands next to me lets say 200 range, clean sight, she cast a spell and no charge was given, same with gondars ulti and shuriken, in WC3 dota the mechanics worked the unit was revealed / canceled invis and then casted /except for roofs spells/ so I am not sure whether this is considered bug or planned

        can any mod/dev give an exact answer whether is it or not a bug

          Problem has been fixed for casting from shadowwalk, but persist for broodmother

          buy magic wand/stick
          let enemy broodmother cast egg from inside web (invisible)

          Result: no charge for magic wand/stick
          excepted result: you gain 1 charge

              Dota2: (you do not get charge in -normalvision, charge at the end is in -allvision)

                  You also don't get wand charges from units that are casting a spell from fog on to you, even though they get revealed doing it. I can understand not getting charges from skills like illuminate now, but if you're on the low ground in middle lane, your wand won't get any charges from an enemy zeus/ns/luna/ etc.

                    Please fix this, it's a really good item and it deserves to be working properly. It gets to be a big problem especially with Mirana because she turns her whole team invisible and every time her team members each cast a spell that is 5 charges their opponents don't get on each of their sticks/wands.

                    I will mercilessly add to my ignore list anyone that makes an incredibly annoying signature.
