  • [Intended?] Gem and Rapier Cannot be Attacked

    Gem and Rapier can be attacked in DotA 1. They're indestructible, but you are allowed to target and attack them on the ground.

    1) Buy Gem or Rapier
    2) Drop on the ground
    3) Try to attack it

    Expected Result:
    You can attack the item.

    Actual Result:
    Trying to target the Gem or Rapier produces a message saying you can't attack that target.

        ^Isn't Dota 2 following how it is in Dota?

          They are indestructible, but in DotA 1 they are attackable. You won't destroy them, but you are still allowed to attack them.

          The only relevant scenario I could think of is the other bug that I discovered that I was going to post just now.

            They aren't actually indestructible, they just have a huge amount of hp.

              You can maybe call that as an intended change.

                You can make items invulnerable (=not attackable) in WC3. But it needs some code lines. Icefrog choose the easier way which doesn't require any coding. Just set the item's hp to who knows what number he used.
