  • Linken's sphere procs while owner is doomed

    So, Doom applies a silence and a mute. With aghanim's scepter also break, but it is unimportant in our case.
    Mute prevents affected target from USING items, so no tp/bkb/blink etc. However, it does not disable passive components of an item, so while doomed target cannot apply linken's buff to an ally, it can benefit from linken's blocking a spell casted upon it.
    That basically happened in one of my recent games (match ID: 2336642305; times to check are 35:30 and 37:50), and I was surprised to see it happening, as I am pretty sure that before break mechanic got introduced, doom was disabling linken's passive component.

    So, the question is, is such behaviour / interaction intended, and if so, why? This seems counterlogical at least, if not broken as fuck.

    for me it seems it shouldnt proc

    however, one can argue that linken is "passive" and therefore should not be disabled by doom

    Edit: does doom disable echo saber?

      Item passives can not be disabled by anything, including Break and Doom.

          Doesn't matter. DotA1 is heavily outdated and won't catch up with the reworked mechanics. Before the silence rework, Doom did disable linken's sphere. But now it doesn't anymore, which is intended since nothing can disable passive item abilities.

              Question is: was it intended to let linkens proc during doom as a part of the massive change you're talking about, or it's a side effect bug and should be treated as such.
              From my PoV, this is a bug, and a pretty damn ugly one (or, rather, another unnecessary nerf to Doom).

                It's intended. Linken's Sphere's ability is passive (i.e., you don't have to cast it in order for it to block like how you have to cast Lotus Orb for it to reflect). The transfer stuff is an active bonus which is disabled by doom's mute effect.
