  • Shadow Fiend Requiem of Souls Cannot Do Full Damage Inside Unit

    I'd just like to direct people to this thread:

    Basically doing a perfect SF ult inside someone using Phase boots/Shadow Blade is pretty much nigh impossible, because of how Requiem of Souls works.

    Some further testing tells us that:

    1. The souls originate not from within SF, but from the "circle selection" border that appears when you select a hero.

    2. Thus, according from #1, it IS possible to do a perfect ult (as I showed screen shots in the topic above a few posts deep) but you must exactly align the "circle selection" border on top of the hero you want to blow up (no unit collision obviously.)

    3. Thus with regards to #2, it is for all intents and purposes, impossible to get a perfect ult in a game. This cuts SF's requiem damage by at least 50%, usually more.

    Will this ever get addressed? I love playing SF, but he's a rare pick nowadays since so many heroes can own him mid, other carries out-carry him easily later on, and his ult is underwhelming due to the lack of damage especially given how squishy he is. Also it's not exactly easy to phase into someone and blow them up, so this would not make him imba at all, just equal to his dota counterpart.
