  • Mutiple manta bug?

    When using multiple different manta, the old illusions are replaced.

    1)Pick Tinker and get your ulti up(alternatively, you can choose any hero and buy refresher but that only works for 2 manta).
    2)Buy multiple manta.
    3)Use one manta, then rearm and use another manta.

    The old illusions from manta are destoryed and you are only left with 2 new illusions.

    From dota 1, the old illusions would still be there along with the new illusions. Therefore you should be able to get up to 12 illusions with 6 manta and rearm.
    Note: Only works if you don't use back the same manta you used before.

    I consider this a fix from the Wc3 engine.

      Tested on 6.72f, new illusions do appear.

      But I'm guessing this was an intentional change? seeing as getting multiple mantas and having a lot of illusion can be imba.

        I'd be disappointed if this was an intentional change. This is one of the most entertaining ways to play tinker.

          As far as I remember ilusions used to disappear in DoTA1. ( At least with one manta and rearm.)

            That's true, but this mechanic involves purchasing multiple mantas and rearming and activating them each in succession.
