  • Double Damage AOE effect

    DotA behaviour: on a hero like Meepo or a hero equipped with Manta, if the illusions are within an AoE (500) of the DD rune being picked up, they will also receive the increased damage and show the visual effect.

    Dota 2 behaviour: not sure if it's my low graphics settings, but it seems like illusions do not show the visible effect and I'm assuming that they also don't get any bonus damage.

    whoa what? since when did that happen in dota 1, sure as hell didn't when i left at 6.60

      When acquired, the Double Damage rune gives your hero and any illusions of it that you control within 500 AoE +100% damage for 45 seconds. Note that this damage is only based on base attack damage, base stats, and bonus stats, if you have an item or buff giving a direct bonus to your damage (such as Divine Rapier, or Alacrity), Double Damage will not increase that damage.

        touché, i stand corrected, must have been added after 6.60, cause i know for sure that wasn't always the case, i remember several times with phantom lancer right clickign a DD rune, and there used to be a bug where whichever illusion got their first, the illusion would pick up the DD and only the illusion would have DD and your hero wouldn't get it.

        anyways, if it was in dota 1, and was designed that way, then yes, youv'e found a bug, should work in dota 2.

          yep ... illusions should get dd too like he said ... and meepo gets all replicates with dd if close bot only for dd .. not other runes

            Actually, since DD's bonus damage is considered raw damage, illusions should not do extra damage with it, the +damage shown and the graphic are just to prevent the opponents from identifying the real one.

            People who wants surrender: It exists, but I'm not teaching you how to do it.
