    Aphotic Shield isn't dealing damage to invisible units.

    I don't remember Abaddon having this limitation back in the day.
    Can we get someone to confirm my suspicion that this is a bug?

    Edit:
    I suppose this post axes my suspicion.

    However, I think I may have damaged Ancients when I was not supposed to, so if his post is 100 percent correct we might have found a different bug. "That also means that the Scout Hawk, Greater Hawk, and Black Drakes will not be affected, since they are flying."

    Does anyone have a video to confirm or deny this?

    I will mercilessly add to my ignore list anyone that makes an incredibly annoying signature.

    Mm... Can you specifically test ancients? There isn't really a "flying" unit type anymore, so I'm less concerned about that.

      Well, I don't see why not. Standby...

      Edit:
      See this?

      He's damaging drakes which according to playdota.com staff member he shouldn't be able to do. Skip ahead to 40 seconds in if you just want to see it fail to hit regular small Ancients. Perhaps it is as you say that there is no 'flying' unit type anymore, and this may be the reason for my confusion about the invisible units. At any rate, it is safe to assume he can destroy Beastmaster's Hawks with this spell as well while he normally wouldn't be able to in the old game. Or so that's how his post reads. So you can imagine my surprise that he can hit flying units with it but not invisible units. It is easy to remember things the wrong way about the old game after playing the new one for so long.

        I would say "working as intended" due to the no flyings fix. It doesn't hit any of the other ancient units because they're magic immune (I can't see your video but I'm assuming you tested with other ancient camps). It should affect spirit bear, warlock golem etc.
