  • Conflict between the invisibilities of Broodmother, Mirana, Riki & Glimmer Cape

    Spin Web, Glimmer Cape, Moonlight Shadow and Cloak and Dagger currently use the same modifier to apply the invisibility ("modifier_invisible"). This causes some issues when affected by two of them at the same time, since the buff does not stack.

    This is best observable on enemies
    1. Have an enemy Broodmother stay inside her web
    2. Have her, or an ally of her cast Glimmer Cape on her
    3. Observe the spot Broodmother is at and wait for Glimmer Cape to expire

    (Can also be repro'd with spin web + moonlight shadow, glimmer cape + moonlight shadow, Cloak and Dagger + Moonlight Shadow or Cloak and Dagger + Glimmer Cape (and Spin Web + Cloak and Dagger in e.g. Ability Draft))

    Result: Sometimes, Broodmother can be seen for a split second as Glimmer Cape expires. This is because, upon expiring, Glimmer Cape removes the invisibility buff, and Spin Web then immediately re-applies it.

    Expected: Spin Web, Glimmer Cape, Moonlight Shadow and Cloak and Dagger should have their own separate buffs for the invisibility.

    Alternative repro:
    1. Plant a Stasis Trap as Techies
    2. Have an enemy affected by Moonlight Shadow
    3. Have that enemy cast Glimmer Cape on self
    4. While affected by both invis abilities, have that enemy move within Stasis Trap's range
    5. Wait for Glimmer Cape to expire

    Result: Stasis Trap does not trigger on invisible units. However, as soon as the Glimmer Cape expires, the trap will trigger, despite the enemy still being invisible with Moonlight Shadow.
