  • Illusions cannot destroy items. Not sure if intended or not.

    Illusions cannot destroy items. I tried to do this when I saw an enemy bottle crowing and left his bottle too close to his tower. Tried to a-click the bottle with illusions and it did not allow me to attack it.

    Repro Steps:
    Create illusions (through rune, manta or other means)
    Attempt to destroy item on ground

    Cannot destroy item on ground with illusion

    Expected Result:
    I would think that illusions should be able to attack/destroy items on the ground.

    EDIT: I'm wrong. Please disregard this thread. I must have made a mistake in the game I was playing. Sorry for wasting your time.

    bump this is kinda unintuitive even if it was in war3 dota.

      I was able to destroy items on the ground with an illusion on Dota 2.

      Items on W3 DotA have hidden healths. Regardless of what type of unit you are, you may or may not be able to kill an item. Illusions have usually lower damage. On my tests, I was able to kill one item on the ground with an illusion by hitting 3 times. And another time, 4 hits were required.

      But items get killed with 1 hit on Dota 2, even with illusions.
      If my eyes arent deceiving me...

        I can confirm being able to deny runes with illusions and im fairly confident that illusions could pawn items too. Unless it has been changed in recent updates.

          i agree, items need their own health bar just for the fun of it.
          i think it took more than one hit from a support hero to destroy a divine rapier item lol.
