  • [Semifixed]Slark's Dark Pact not purging everything it should

    This was reported in the test server forums but not fixed before live.

    In dota1, Slark's Dark Pact Purge is actually a bit different than the usual purges and dispels additional abilities that other stuff doesn't.

    Here's a list of stuff it should purge and it doesn't in dota2.

    Viper's Viper Strike
    Viper's Poison Attack
    Venomancer's Venomous Gale
    Venomancer's Poison Nova
    Naga Siren's Ensnare
    Queen of Pain's Shadow Strike
    Dark Troll Warlord(neutral)'s Ensnare
    Lone Druid's Bear's Entangle
    Since nov 29th patch: Rubick's Telekinesis(the lift part, you can still purge the stun from someone landing next to you)
    Possible intended fix: Naga Siren's Song of the Siren(in dota1, if you use Dark Pact before it's cast, you will dispell the effect and be immune to the song until it ends or until you leave the area and enter again)

    Stuff it purges that it shouldn't:
    Omniknight's Repel but ONLY if it's an ENEMY Repel, ally Repel isn't purged as intended.
    Regeneration Rune(probably not purging it though and simply turning it off due to self damage, which does not happen in dota1)

    And before you feel you have to correct me on how these are not dispellable and it's intended, know that I have tested all of these in dota1 and dota2. There are undispellable effects even by Slark's Dark Pact(for example Venomancer's Poison Sting, Bane's Enfeeble or Razor's Link) but these are specifically removed even though they shouldn't. There might be more.

    can it be general issue with purge? Check my old thread about Naga, and test it with Slark if you can

        Well there might be a separate issue with purges, but Slark's debuff removal is a special spell, it removes stuns for example which other purges don't, both in dota2 and dota1. As such I don't think the issues with generic purges are the same as Slark's Dark Pact, it probably has its own code.

        It is also a unique purge in dota1, that removes specific debuffs, which is why even though there might have been intended fixes on purges removing or not removing certain spells, I don't think those should apply to slark, since all it takes to fix them in dota1 would be to remove them from the list of abilities Dark Pact removes.

            Slark receives half of the damage from dark pact, hence reg rune gets canceled. I guess.

              I added Shadow Strike from QoP, as well as the neutral Ensnare. I checked positive buffs and it doesn't seem to dispel the ones I checked(double damage rune, Repel, Guardian Angel). It might dispel Regen because it inflicts damage when you use it, I'll check on dota and add it if it's different.

              Btw there's a (slightly outdated) list there http://www.playdota.com/forums/showp...74&postcount=7 if someone want to do a detailed check of every ability. I only checked a few I knew would be problematic(stuff that doesn't dispel with BKB) as well as track/amplify cause someone said it didn't work but they work fine.

              Edit: Adding Regen rune.

                Just continue to list wrong interactions. It has not been decided yet by devs if these are to be intended changes.

                    This is the same in both wc3 Dota and Dota 2.

                          All i know is that it did back in dota1, not sure if that was unintentional or what. (Could have been changed with updates etc) but im fairly certain i was able to do it at atleast one point.

                          Either way i guess it would be kinda OP if it did

                            rupture gets removed by nothing in dota 1, not even death. 0.0

                              I made updated list of what should Dark Pact remove for 76c; it might be some help/indicator for future research if someone got time.
