  • Lone Druid's Spirit Bear + Quelling Blade = ?

    I looked up on about this topic for DotA 1, but I couldn't fully understand this issue! So, considering Dota 2:

    1st: Is there any difference in the mechanics besides the fact that Demolish abilities are not hard-coded ( I'm not sure about this. I just hope they're not ) anymore?
    2nd: Does Quelling Blade affects Entangle Claws in any way? Or the other way around?
    3rd: If the QB affects only the Demolish ability, if a Spirit Bear lvl 4 has a Quelling Blade, is it possible in any way QB work with Demolish, like, for instance, QB working on non-hero and non-building units, and Demolish working on buildings?
    4th: Does the relation between QB and Spirit Bear's abilities has a priority system, similar of dropping items with orb effect to establish the precedence, but in this case, dropping QB, or learn bear's abilities and buy QB after?

    1. Quelling Blade is a buff placer in DotA1 and nothing in Dota2. That's the difference.
    2. Quelling Blade always gets overriden by Entangling Claws, because there is no way to get Quelling Blade first and then Entangling Claws. If you level up the bear, so it gets Entangling Claws, the previous bear gets removed and the new bear with Entangling Claws gets added. All the items from the previous bear get copied to the new bear. This makes it impossible to get Quelling Blade first on a bear with entangle.
    3. No. The target doesn't matter. Quelling Blade never works on bear with demolish or entangle, beucause it never can be the first applied buff placer.
    4. Already covered this in the other points, but I'll repeat it again.

    You summon level 2 spirit bear
    you buy Quelling Blade
    You level up the bear to 3 and this is what happens
    Level 2 spirit bear gets removed
    Level 3 spirit bear gets added
    The items of level 2 spirit bear get copied into level 3 spirit bear's inventory

    No way to get the items first.

        It fully works for Spirit Bear in Dota2 in any scenario.
        Quelling Blade has 0 interactions with any attack modifier in Dota2.
