  • [Ancient Apparition] Ice Blast does not prevent healing from Decay and Whirling Death

    Ice Blast is supposed to freeze the target's health. Even health gained from Morphling's strength morph, Pudge gaining Flesh heap stacks, regaining stolen strength from Slark or picking up strength items is prevented.

    Repro Undying:
    1. Pick Undying and level up Decay
    2. Get hit by Ice Blast
    3. Cast Decay on enemy heroes

    Repro Timbersaw:
    1. Pick any strength hero
    2. Get hit by enemy Whirling Deaths
    3. Get hit by Ice Blast, timed so that the Whirling Death debuffs expire during it

    Result: The strength gained upon gaining Decay stacks, or upon losing the Whirling Death debuff as a strength hero causes your hero to heal through Ice Blast.

    Expected: Health gained via strength gain should be prevented by Ice Blast, no matter the source. Decay and Whirling Death should follow the rules. As seen in the video, it already works like this with str items and regaining stats from Slark (and Treads switching, Armlet toggling and gaining flesh heap stacks during it, not in the video though).

    Please, just call me buny.
