  • Lycan's wolf interaction with Roshan

    I haven't tried this with other units but i assume they work the same
    In Dota1
    Roshan will always aim the lowest health unit in range ( Alternating your wolf does not help because roshan will focus on the lower health one )

    In Dota2
    Roshan behave the same as any other neutral creep. ( Hence you can alternate your wolf and let them heal with offering's aura )

    Lycan is already OP. The above simply make it easier for lycan to roshan.

      (Unless this was changed moderately recently), Roshan doesn't target the "lowest" HP unit, he targets units that are "low" HP period. So if you back the wolf before it drops below 50% or so, you can have it attack Roshan again and he won't switch targets. He only switches if a target is at ~30% HP.

      If you have a 20% HP wolf and he isn't switching, that is a bug, but otherwise you can switch them off with some decent microing and awareness.

        actually there are "smart" neutral creeps that will prioritize low hp/heroes over other units. this includes (iirc) lv 5+ creeps (centaur, wildkin, furblog, ...) and roshan
