  • Stealing auras with illusions in dota 2

    In dota 1, you can clone illusions with base aura and not triggered ones and use it for your team. I have always thought it was an engine limitation to be only able to steal "base" aura but not others.

    Has this changed in dota 2?

    Also, now that trueshot aura for drow has been changed, can you still steal her aura by cloning her illusion and benefit your team?

    didnt test it yet, but i believe it was changed in dota2.

      Units on the same team definitely benefit from illusions' auras - tested it with drow a while back when she had her old aura, and with Vlads too - all units around had the auras, even when the main hero was absent.

      I have NOT tested enemy illusions (replicate, disruption, enchanting illusions etc.) but it should act the same, I will try it now.

      Ok, you do benefit from enemy globals too, as expected and same as WC3, most auars auras can be given by illusions

      Exception to this is Drow's global aura in WC3, there are a few funny things with her that I might bring up in the main section (illusions and her ultimate as well as aura)
