  • Lycan illusions benefit from Feral Impulse's attack speed bonus

    The attack speed bonus from Lycan's Feral Impulse applies to his illusions. No, I'm not referring to them simply carrying the aura. They actually benefit from the attack speed bonus.

    Repro Steps
    1. Give Lycan a Manta Style and at least 1 level in Feral Impulse.
    2. Activate the Manta Style and have an illusion attack something (I used a neutral camp).
    3. Compare the illusion's actual attack time (determined via the Combat Log) to Lycan's.

    The illusion attacks with the same speed as Lycan himself.

    Expected Result
    As far as I know, this is intended, but there's no indication on PlayDotA or in-game tooltips about whether Feral Impulse is based on Endurance Aura (i.e. illusions benefit from it) or not. Lycan's Dota 2 Wiki page claims that illusions carry the aura but can't benefit from the bonuses, but this certainly wouldn't be the first time the wiki has something wrong. I found no mention of this in the bugs list or intended changes list threads, so I'm hoping someone with WC3 experience or some other inside info can clear this up.
    I wonder what awaits me at the end of everything.

    Hmmm, did I stump everyone?

      This is consistent with DotA 1 behavior. Feral Impulse gives an Endurance Aura (for attack speed) and Command Aura (for damage), but illusions can only benefit from the Endurance Aura.

          I guess I can close this then.
          Please, just call me buny.
