  • Puck Ethereal Jaunt Behaviour with Sniper ultimate?

    So 6.74c currently has this:

    Ethereal Jaunt now dodges projectiles

    On the Dota2 beta just now, I had somewhat of an odd experience. I'm not sure if it's a bug, so here it goes.

    During one of my matches, an opposing sniper targeted his ult at me while I was playing Puck. Escaping on very low hp, I use Orb to gain extra distance, and upon hearing the sniper shot being fired and seeing the projectile nearly hit puck, I trigger Ethereal Jaunt to dodge it. Puck then teleports to her Orb, but Sniper's projectile chases instead.

    Is this standard behaviour for Sniper's ultimate? I read about Mirana's leap and the invisibility technique to dodge projectiles, is this the same? Because if so, the true sight would then block the projectile dodge.

    That change actually hasn't been applied to Dota 2 yet despite being in the change log for 6.74. It's been confirmed as a bug through testing with other projectiles like Hellfire Blast or Magic Missile.

      Reported it already here. It currently can't dodge projectiles via Ethereal Jaunt.

      And no, Sniper's ulti doesn't aim like Sven's Storm Bolt.
      Please, just call me buny.

        Sniper's ult only gives true sight during the channel, if you fade to stealth while the projectile is in mid air it will dodge.
