  • Attacking Roshan Backwards

    I didn't test this with any other heroes, but when furion and roshan are overlapping and facing each other, the attack actually flies backwards from furions staff to roshan since the staff actually goes through and past roshan.

    Repro Steps
    Get close enough to roshan with furion that the staff goes through and past roshan at the end of the attack animation.

    Like in this image, you can see the deso orb effect going backwards from the staff back to roshan

    Expected Result
    Not sure. Maybe have zero projectile? Or increase roshan collision size maybe. Not a huge deal and makes sense considering where roshans attack point is and where the projectile leaves the staff.

    I think it is mostly just a clipping issue and can probably be reproduced with a few other heroes with projectile attacks that you can manage to clip through roshan. The projectile, be it orb effect or regular is just trying to go from point A to point B. be it forwards or "backwards"

      You should hit the staff on roshan's head and see little birds while he gets dizzy...

      Seriously, I think it's normal, expected and not a bug.

        Yeah like I said it totally makes sense given how the mechanics work. I just added a deso orb so you could see it better in the pic.

          moved to visual glitches.

          this most likely will get fixed, iff all heroes get melee attack animations (like beastmaster).
