      Did you compare it to D1 or is that an assumption ?

        It's the same with ALL skills that draw lines etc. and invisibility or fog. It's because of the way that it doesn't send information about heroes you can't see. It's the same with frozen sigil as well, you can't see when it's slowing stuff around it if it's on top of a hill.

          This also happens with any other hero that goes invisible, not just Phantom Lancer, as I already explained in my thread.
          I will mercilessly add to my ignore list anyone that makes an incredibly annoying signature.

            the leash disappears when pounced units go invis, although in d1 you still see the bound and thus see where the enemy is so you can dark pact it.

              ^ this is true for both Pounce leash and Dream Coil bound


              • #8
                If I'm right, if an enemy goes invisible, it would still be bound and you can still see the leash ( In Dota 2)

                  ^ yes, you also are right. The enemy can see the leash/bound even when he/she gets invisible. But Slark/Puck and their allies cannot see the leash/bound if they have no detection upon them.

                  It really is important for Slark and Puck. Both have an AoE skill that may help them to get the kill of a low-health invisible fleeing unit...
