  • [Chen] Several fixes and additions to his ability & modifier tooltips

    * No changes

    Test of Faith:
    * Add ALT note saying it can target spell immune allies (header already implies that it can't target spell immune enemies)

    Holy Persuasion:
    * Missing spell immunity info in header
    * Description implies that only creeps acquired via Holy Persuasion are teleported on self-cast, which is wrong
    * Aghs description is in default description (isn't for any other spell)
    * Teleport buff says "teleporting to safety", which is outdated since it can also teleport units to Chen, and not only towards the fountain

    Hand of God:
    * Has "upgradable by Aghanim's Scepter" in description, which is wrong since Hand of God has no upgrade. The upgrade is for Holy Persuasion
    * Has redundant note about it affecting spell immune units (info is already in the header)

    I also reworded the aghs text and ALT notes of Holy Persuasion, and reworded his talents to match the ability corresponding descriptions more.

Using an ancient form of animal enthrallment, Chen's people husbanded the hardy desert locuthi, a stunted species of burrowing dragon that melted desert sands into tubes of glass where twice-a-year rains collected.  Always on the edge of starvation and thirst, fighting amongst their neighbors and each other, Chen's clan made the mistake, one fateful day, of ambushing the wrong caravan. 
    In the vicious battle that followed, Chen's clan was outmatched.  The armored Knights of the Fold made short work of the enthralled locuthi, who attacked and died in waves.  With their dragons dead, the tribesmen followed. Chen struggled, and slashed, and clawed, and perished--or would have. Defeated, on his knees, he faced his execution with humility, offering his neck to the blade. Moved by Chen's obvious courage, the executioner halted his sword. Instead of the blade, Chen was given a choice: death or conversion. Chen took to the faith with a ferocity. He joined the Fold and earned his armor one bloody conversion at a time. Now, with the fanaticism of a convert, and with his powers of animal enthrallment at their peak, he seeks out unbelievers and introduces them to their final reward."
