  • Ball lightening should not trigger Essence Aura as per

    Repro steps:
    1. pick storm spirit and lvl up to 6.
    2. have OD on your team max out his essence aura so that its at 40%. ( level not really necessary but easier to see if its lvl 4 )
    3. have storm stand in range of the aura, and start spamming his ult on the spot he stands

    Result: you will see that he does get the 25% max mana returned.

    Expected result: essence aura does not effect spells with no cooldown. taken from

    • Several skills with no cooldown (such as the Storm Spirit's Ball Lightning) and toggled spells (such as the Witch Doctor's Voodoo Restoration) cannot trigger Essence Aura.

        Not that it's hard for him to get full mana near a OD anyway (spam remnants ftw).

        Seems like it triggers on every spell and not on items at all.
        Please, just call me buny.
