  • Shouldn't Last Word cancel channeling ?

    I noticed this change for this week's update:

    Update Notes - February 20, 2013
    ...
    GAMEPLAY
    ...
    - Fixed Last Word interrupting channeling spells if the initial duration ends during the channel.
    ...
    Since Last Word silences the target shouldn't it also cancel channeling spells just as Global Silence does ? (I ask because I am not sure how this works in D1; that is, was it a bug before in D2 that didn't work like in D1 or did it cancel channels in D1 and this is an intended fix ?)

      Last word silences the target AFTER the channeling is finished.

      If you cast last word on warlock, then he uses upheaval, he will channel for the full duration (10 seconds) then get damaged+silenced.

        Last Word shouldn't stop channelings. Last Word trigger AFTER a channeling ends.
        However, if the timed duration ends WHILE channeling (therefore not triggering because of the skill but because of time), the target will get silenced and it stops channeling.
        If you think I've closed or deleted a post unjustified, feel free to PM me and I'll explain it to you/discuss it with you further.

              Aha silence doesn't stop the use of items, channeled or otherwise

                Exactly. It made perfect sense before the test patch which is why I am unsure of this "fix".

                I see... I assume that's how it is in D1?

                  In dota 1, it triggers after the channeling
