[Fixed] [Dark Willow] Shadow Realm doesn't cancel single-target spells

  • [Fixed] [Dark Willow] Shadow Realm doesn't cancel single-target spells

    Upon casting Shadow Realm, any attack an enemy had begun gets canceled, and she cannot be attacked during Shadow Realm

    However, if an enemy already began casting a single target spell, that spell does not get canceled upon casting Shadow Realm. Spells cannot be targeted on her during Shadow Realm, but spells which are already in the cast animation ignore it completely.

    1. Get targeted by Nether Strike or Assassinate
    2. During their long cast time, activate Shadow Realm

    Result: Even though Shadow Realm was cast, the enemy Sniper/Spirit Breaker continue casting their single target spell. The cast does not get canceled.

    Expected: Just like how attacks cancel, single-target spells should cancel when the target enters Shadow Realm.

    Please, just call me buny.

    The bug still exists as of now.
    If you cast Shadow Realm during a cast animation, the spell will reach you.
    It feels like this is hard coded (for balance purposes?), but it creates really inconsistent interactions. You can get hit by about any projectile spells if you cast SR during their cast animation and dodge the same projectiles if you SR right after the cast.

    Here are 2 videos showing those interactions:

    Wraithfire Blast:

    In both videos I first cast SR during the enemy's cast time and then after, evading the projectile. The expected result would be evading the projectile both times.

    Slark's Shadow Dance is very similar to Shadow Realm but it cancels casts entirely. Applying the same system to SR would fix this bug, but buff the spell at the same time.
