  • Impale/Earth Spike Range

    Earth Spike and Impale are supposed to have 500 casting range, 700 distance and 125 AoE. So it should be able to reach a target up to 825 units away -- however, it appears that it can target units even further away.

    How did I test this?
    I created two heroes. Sniper and Nyx Assassin. I leveled both heroes up to 8, and maxed out Take Aim. That gives Sniper a range 810, which is 15 units below the range of Impale/Earth Spike. However, I am able to hit him even if he moves a fair distance away.

    Here's a picture showing dota_range_display 825 (the supposed range), and I am still capable of hitting the Sniper in that picture.

    I also tested in DotA 1, and I was not able to replicate it to this extend. I did the same procedure, but the moment I moved ever so slightly away, Sniper wouldn't get hit.

    Could anyone clarify/confirm/debunk/help test this for me? Would be much appreciated!

    Isn't spell range counted from bounds of hero model, not center like dota_range_display displays?

      Hmn. That just seems weird. If it were to start the tendrils at the edge, rather than the center, it'd still only add ~12 extra units, up to 837 units range, then.
