  • Shackle Shot isn't working.

    Hey guys, I played a match with Windrunner now and discovered that Shackle Shot has some problem, it's not working. I tried lots of times in different circunstances but it never worked, a Pudge with 5 creeps behind him, Leoric with trees, Pudge with a lot of trees, never worked, well, see what you can do. Thanks.

    Bug posting guidelines. READ THIS FIRST!
    When posting bugs in the forums it will help prevent confusion if we follow a standard format. We want to fix all of the bugs that you are experiencing so you can go back to having fun but it can be difficult to know what to do if we don't understand exactly what the problem is.



    Each bug should have the following sections.

    Summary:
    This is where you describe the bug that is happening in the game right now. You should include any details that seem relevant like the frequency the bug happens, anything out of the ordinary that might have caused it, or if you were able to reproduce the result.

    Repro Steps:
    Make a numbered list of the steps that caused this bug to occur.

    Result:
    Describe exactly what happens.

    Expected Result:
    Describe how the behavior should be different from the behavior you described. Be clear if you know the behavior is incorrect or if it just seems suspicious.

    A match ID + Timestamps is also extremely helpful.

      Ok then, let's do it as it should be done.

      Summary:
      Windrunner's shackle shot isn't working as it should be, it isn't working.

      Repro Steps:
      1) Get Windrunner with Shackle Shot.
      2) Shoot an enemy in the circunstances Shackle Shot would work (enemies with allies or trees right behind them).
      3) The ministun of 0.75 works, but the main part of the skill didn't.

      Result:
      I used Shackle Shot at different enemies in different circunstances it should work but it didn't, not a single stun in the whole match.

      Expected Result:
      Shackle Shot should lock the targeted enemy together with a tree or enemy unit that's right behind him, sometimes Shackle works with enemies that are in front of it, different from the discribed in the skill info.

      Match ID: 11678874

      53:45 Replay time - Shackle Shot on Pudge - Should've locked him with the creeps.

      59:50 Replay time - Anothe Shackle Shot on Pudge - Should've locked him with the trees right behind him.


      This is the 2 best moments, but there's more fail Shackles all over this match, Thanks

            53:45 Replay time - If you watch it slow mo, at that exact time, there were no creeps avaible, he lucked out
            59:50 Replay time - No way you could Shackle him to those trees from that angle.

              At slow mo, 53:45 really didn't have creep avaible, 0.1s lucky, this is right, but I still can't understand how 59:50 didn't work, trees aren't that far, so how does Shackle Shot really work, does my shooting angle mean something? I really never knew about it. I thought the relation was only target + ally/tree.

                It will shackle your target to the thing(Creep, Tree, Enemy hero...) behind them, if you would Shacle that Pudge to the tree on the left, it would work. But you aimed your shackle to hit the trees directly behind him and these were way too far away.

                  So the position I'm shooting matters in the final result of the shackle, understood this now.

                    • Can shackle the target to an enemy unit or tree at most 525/500 units behind it.

                      afaik your position on the IMPACT matters. might be wrong on this one though. either way you can adjust the angle with items like phaseboots, forcestaff, blinkdagger or simply windrunning.
