  • [Confirmed] 4 issues with Skywrath's Scepter upgrade (Concussive Shot & Mystic Flare)

    Sorted by order of importance
    1. Secondary Mystic Flare can target the same hero so that the hero is damaged by both.

    The secondary Mystic Flare is supposed to select another random hero within range, excluding the primary target. However, it looks like it just checks if enemies are within exactly 170 (mystic flare aoe) range of the targeted point. It ignores collision size. This means you can hit an enemy hero at the edge of the AoE, and the second one will chose the same hero, so that it is hit twice.

    Mystic Flare's effective radius against most heroes is 170 radius+24 colision size = 194. Therefore, the secondary Mystic Flare should only target heroes which are 200 range away from the center of the primary Mystic Flare, not 170 range.

    2. Concussive Shot secondary projectile sometimes fails to target spell immune/invulnerable heroes.

    The primary projectile targets the closest enemy hero, even if that enemy is spell immune or invulnerable, applying the aoe effect around it. The secondary projectile sometimes does not do this, but sometimes does. It should always do it.

    3. Secondary Mystic Flare targets non-hero units.

    Since the ability only damages heroes, it makes no sense for it to target non-hero units. It should only target heroes and illusions.

    4. Concussive Shot secondary projectile is able to target non-hero units.

    The primary projectile is only launched towards heroes and illusions. The secondary can target non-hero units. It shouldn't be able to.

    Please, just call me buny.
