  • Shadow Walk/Wind Walk/Shadow Blade/Vendetta apply dmg to every hit during fade time

    Several invisibility spells apply their damage to every hit during their fade times, without breaking the invisibility, allowing you to apply their damage multiple times per cast. Affected spells are:

    1. Bounty Hunter's Shadow Walk
    2. Brewmaster Storm's Wind Walk
    3. Nyx Assassin's Vendetta
    4. Shadow Blade's Shadow Walk

    1. Cast Shadow Walk/Wind Walk/Vendetta/Shadow Blade
    2. During the fade time, perform an attack

    Result: The attack performed during the fade time applies the backstab damage without breaking the invisibility, so the backstab can be used again.

    Expected result: The backstab damage is only applied on attacks done after the fade time. Attacks done during the fade time should not apply the damage, just like how attacks done during the fade time don't break the invisibility.

    Note: This bug currently does not affect Vendetta, since it has no fade time. But if a fade time gets added to it in a future update, this will be very abusable.

        This bug makes bounty hunter's shadow walk level 2 superior in damage sometimes to higher levels where the fade time is too fast to attack.

          ^ It is also quite strong on Brew's ulti, the storm element can use his WW only once with lvl 1 split, but with this here, you can get the 100 bonus damage twice, which can be huge early on.

              I thought this was intended. It's awesome and gives interesting depth to fighting with these heroes.

                Shadow Walk trigger twice

                as pic
                LONG attack range, HIGH attack speed, SLOW projectile heroes can trigger Shadow Walk twice(Sliver Edge and Shadow Blade).
