  • [Confirmed]Soul Rip damages allied courier

    Courier currently is a valid "amplifying unit" for Undying's soul rip. When soul rip is cast, the courier loses 25 hp.
    Additionally, the courier might add to the damage/heal effect, but this wasn't tested while being a very likely case.

    - move your hero (undying) and allied courier outside of fountain area
    - cast soul rip on yourself

    result: courier loses 25 hp

    expected result: courier doesn't lose any hp

    Nope, just tested. If true, it's a bug.

      Cant test this right now but, courier is magic immune, so test this:

      1 - gather omni and soulrip.
      2 - go near a bunch of creeps.
      3 - repel one creep.
      4 - use soul rip.
      5 - gather results.

        soul rip is hp removal (only the -25), so that test has no merit. (the creep will lose hp in your example). But that doesnt necesarrily mean a courier should lose hp too.

          All the repro steps you've came up with is unnecessary.

          Just create an Undying, isolate him, and put a courier nearby, cast Soul Rip on self.
          On W3 DotA, it doesn't get damaged.
          On Dota 2, it gets damaged.

          This is a [Bug], and I confirm it.
          Would be nice if this thread was moved to the main section and added to the list.

            Is the courier used to the damage/heal amount in wc3?
            What i wanted to know in my steps was this, if the unit count or doenst count for the spell (even if it gets no damage)

              What is your question RocketFingers? I think I am misunderstanding it.


              • #8
                Ive formated my machine so I dont own wc3 anymore. (will fix it soon).
                What I wanna know is:
                1) Soulrip catches a bunch of units around and use their HP to do damage/heal.
                2) In dota 2 the courier is a valid unit for this (prolly bugged).
                3) is the courier a valid unit for soulrip in wc3? If you cast with soulrip with a courier around (enemy or yours) will it increase soulrip damage/heal?

                We know the courier isnt damaged by soulrip, what I want to know is if he helps to increase the damage even without losing his HP.

                  No. Courier is simply not grouped, so it doesn't take damage, nor is counted.

                  Adding to sticky and main.
