  • [Resolved] Abaddon takes a lot of time to cast 'Aphotic Shield'?

    While playing Abaddon in the game, I observed that there is a slight time delay in casting the 'Aphotic Shield' on the same hero. Is this Intended?

    Because of the role of Aphotic shield removing certain buffs, its role in the battle is diminished when there is a delay in casting time of the spell. Compared against 'Borrow Time' or using certain items (like Diffusal blade).

    I even found using it on self in the heat of battle useless at times, because the casting animation is interrupted.

    well, 0.452 sec cast time is not short.

      I do not about the actual time, But if it were to have 3/4th of its current casting time. I think it would be helpful during the middle of the battles.

      Note: Also forgot to mention that the casting radius of 'Aphotic Shield' is itself small. So trying to use it on a unit far away from the casting radius and with the current casting delay, it is a bit less useful compared to other spells.
