    Familiars are retardedly bugged atm... Valve overfixed them... I am actually pretty annoyed and frustrated at how they keep managing to do this stuff... I am trying to use a database to find which skills should/shouldn't hit ancients, then hopefully they can update EVERYTHING with it...

  • Nightmare + Familiar [not on the list of known bugs]

    Spotted in Dota 2. Haven't checked Dota 1.

    Issue is simple to spot. Bane uses Nightmare on Visage's Familiar; the familiar has the animation on it (as if it were under the effect of nightmare), but it moves/attacks freely. If any unit attacks the familiar before Nightmare runs out then that unit is placed under the effect of nightmare.

    Correct me if I am wrong but I do see this as a bug.

    Possible fixes:

    1. Restrict Familiar's movement like all other units.
    2. Make Familiars unable to be targeted by Nightmare.
