  • [Intended?] Chainlightning based skills do instant damage

    In DotA1, all chainlightning based skill have a small delay before they deal the damage. In Dota2 their damage is instant.

    Concerned spells are Arc Lightning, Lightning Bolt, Thundergod's Wrath, Wrath of Nature, Fade Bolt, Thunder Strike and the neutral creep's Chain Lightning.

    Repro:
    Cast named spell on Puck
    Try to Phase Shift the spell

    Try it in DotA1 and Dota2.
    In DotA1 it is possible. The lightning effect appears instantly, but the damage not.
    In Dota2, the lightning effect and the damage appear simultaniously.

    Laguna Blade, Finger of Death and Lightning Storm still have that delay in Dota2.

    This might be an intended fix.

      If this is an intended fix for some spells, why not fix the others too? It's stupid that the effect for finger/laguna is displayed instantly but the damage is delayed.

        fix laguna blade and finger of death, so make it intended.
        i dont really see a reason that there should be a slight delay between the damage and animation
        btw does razor's attack animation also happen bofore the damage?

          I'd say to fix it so that all spells have the delay. It would be a significant buff to certain skills to make them undodgeable such as Laguna Blade, also it adds to Puck skill to be able to dodge such skills in lane.

            Razor's attack is same as in DotA1. It's not instant, but has a 2k projectile speed. The lightning has only visual purpuse.

              i knew it's not instant. i am asking if the damage synchronized with the animation. so u mean no? imo it should be changed
