  • Several spells are not dispelled when proccing Aeon Disk/Kraken Shell/Borrowed Time

    When Aeon Disk/Kraken Shell/Borrowed Time proc, they dispels most debuffs on the hero, including debuffs placed by the spell that procced them .For example, if you get hit by e.g. Magic Missile, Hoof Stomp, War Stomp, Wraithfire Blast, any bash, Homing Missile, etc., Aeon Disk, Kraken Shell and Borrowed Time will dispel it. However, there are some spells which are not dispelled by it, making Aeon Disk very inconsistent.

    The reason for this is very simple: Spells which get dispelled first apply their debuffs, and then do the damage. Spells which don't get dispelled first apply the damage, and the their debuffs. Note that these all happen "at the same time", it's literally just decided by which lines are further up in the codes.

    Bump. Adding Grimstroke to the list:

    - Stroke of Fate slow
    - Ink Swell stun

    Both are not dispelled when triggering Aeon Disk, Kraken Shell or Borrowed Time.

      I would like to add to this list that Sven's level 15 Storm Hammer talent also applies its dispel *after* damage triggers the Aeon Disk. So the Aeon Disk 100% damage reduction triggers and then is immediately dispelled, meaning the Aeon Disk does nothing against it. This is counter-intuitive. I would expect the talented Storm Hammer to only dispel if the buff is already up.
