  • Sprout not triggering Linkens

    When you directly cast sprout on a hero with Linkens, it won't be blocked.

    Repro Steps:
    1) cast sprout on enemy hero with linkens buff

    Sprout will be cast, Linkens buff won't be removed

    Expected Result:
    Sprout won't be cast, Buff removed.

    This is intended, since you can just target the ground to achieve the same result.

      But you can 'juke' the enemy Prophet into misplacing it if he had to cast it on the ground.

      I'd say do it however it worked in DotA1.

        This kind of seems like a nerf to sprout then, because it loses functionality. Obviously we've always been able to do the target ground thing, but now we can't target them on purpose to dispell the linkens anymore, for example to help an ally set a stun up or something like that.

          What Crasha said is exactly what happened

          It's quite a big change.
