  • [ABADDON] Mistblade doesn't "sheathe". Intended ?

    Abaddon has a feature concerning his animation and weapon, whereby Abaddon's weapon will only appear when near visible enemy. Otherwise, it stays "invisible", sheathed.

    The "Mistblade" cosmetic weapon replacement doesn't interact that way. Instead it stays out permamently and when you approach a visible enemy Abaddon will twirl it in his hand like a cane. Particle effects will apply normally.

    This is quite charming, but I am not sure this is intended.

    Does the sword "pierce" his mount when you are far from an enemy? If yes, then it's a bug and the sword is supposed to disappear. Otherwise, probably not a bug.

            I got Mistblade and it behaves the same way as Abaddon's default sword. It's hidden when there's no enemies in your vision and ready for attack if there are enemies.

              It isn't, I am sorry it's not video or .gif , but here are screenshots with Mistblade cosmetic equipped highlighting the issue.

                ^A gif or video would really help a lot. From the screenshots it seems as if it is intended, but we must also take the horse's animations into account.
                So my question remains the same:

                Video for reference (look at 0:07-0:17, you can see the sword piercing the mount):

                  I've got the video material saved but it'll take me some time to make it into a gif format, I haven't really done that prior.
                  If it's plausible, you can test this for yourself by aquiring the Mistblade (ask friend to lend it to you?), creating lobby with Cheats on and spawning Abaddon and hostile hero.
                  Select enemy hero and keep going back and forth between Abaddon's trigger range. Mistblade will flail around a bit ,though there seem to be no apparent clipping issues as far as I've seen. Still, it seems unintended given how Abaddon's weapon initially follows the rule of Invisible -> Summoned, rather than Dormant -> Active.
