  • Quelling Blade can't be thrown?

    Sorry if this has already been mentionned or somehow not a bug, but here goes:


    With HoN's equivalent of Quelling Blade and I'm pretty sure it was also the case in Dota 1, you could do everything you can with Dota 2's quelling blade (eg. Damage bonus against minions, able to cut trees) but you could also throw the axe once every X seconds at a minion to damage/kill it at a distance. Not being able to throw it in Dota 2 makes it quite harder for some melee champs (in my case, Spectre) to have a good early-game and I don't see why it shouldn't be implemented.


    1. Start a game with any hero.
    2. Once the game starts, buy a Quelling Blade and head to the lane of your choice.
    3. Click or otherwise activate the Quelling Blade, then target an enemy minion.
    4. Notice that, instead of showing a projectile going to the minion and damaging it, the error message "Must target a tree." will appear.


    Assuming we could throw the axe at minions in Dota 1, I expect players to be able to do the same in Dota 2.

    This isn't HoN and that's the only place you can throw a quellin blade.

      this was a change introduced like half a year ago in hon and was intended as a buff to melee carrys/melee heros in general. its not a bug since its not in dota1, i think this can be closed.

        Quelling Blade is sellable. That is the better way to buff the item than HoN's approach.

        Anyway, working as intended.
