  • [Confirmed] Shiva's Guard particle effects not drawing when user is invisible/hidden

    When phoenix unleash ShivaGuard - Artic blast and immediately use Supernova, the artic blast immediately stopped and vanished altogether.
    Shouldn't the Artic Blast supposed to expand all the way like normal? It kinda kills the purpose of shiva+supernova combo.

    Correction: Shiva's Guard continues functioning normally. Its particle effects just stop drawing if the caster goes invisible or hidden. They should still draw, even when the caster cannot be seen (excluding Fog of War of course).

    Same goes for Eye of the Storm.

    It's a visual bug.

    Shiva's Guard's visual effect is attached to the caster. If the caster gets hidden, the effects turn invisible. It's actually a new bug, and is also what causes Ember Spirit to be fully invisible during Activate Fire Remnant. Some visual effects should be visible even when the unit is hidden.
    Please, just call me buny.

      aaah yess. Hope this bug fixed.

      Recently jumping into war, activate artic blast+supernova only to found out no one affected by the slow (the artic blast disappeared immediately after supernova casted).

        Whirling Axes, Wild Axes, and Activate Fire Remnant had the same bug, but got fixed.

        Shiva's Guard and Eye of the Storm are fully invisible if the caster turns invisible or hidden. They should be visible as well, just like other particle effects of aoe spells which are attached to units.

        There probably are more such spells.
        Please, just call me buny.
