  • New AoE targeting cursor sometimes uses old sprite

    6.86 came with this change:

    "Single Target with AoE effects now have a new targeting UI"

    Unless I missed something the new cursor is used for:

    Alchemist (Unstable Concoction)
    Lich (Frost Blast)
    Luna (Eclipse with Aghs)
    Oracle (Fortune's End)
    Sven (Storm Hammer)
    Winter Wyvern (Winter's Curse)


    Activate one of the listed abilities while your mouse cursor placed over an (allied or enemy) creep, hero, or tower (except for Luna's eclipse, which will not reproduce this bug over a tower or any enemy unit).


    The new targeting cursor will not be used and it will instead use the old blue circle. The cursor will reload correctly with the new rotating reticle if you move your cursor off the map and onto the UI at the top or bottom of the screen.

    Moving the cursor on or off a unit will not change what cursor is being used until the ability is reactivated.
    Selecting an ability with your cursor over an empty point on the map correctly loads the new cursor.

    Expected Result:

    Presumably, the new targeting cursor should always be used regardless of where your mouse cursor was when you activated the ability.

    Additionally the new targeting cursor is not (but should be?) used for:

    Disruptor (Thunder Strike)
    Ogre Magi (Ignite with Aghs)
    Omniknight (Purification)
    Spirit Breaker (Nether Strike with Aghs)
