  • [suggestion] appearance for phantom spot

    Hello, I went to read some random guide on playDota, and I read this :

    Phantom Spot- (PS) is an area wherein you should have a vision on that area but dont due to certain reasons icefrog had made probably to obscure and hide the heroes killing roshan so that it would be fair for them not to be easily ambushed.
    "PS" in the image above :

    Although I finally got used to it, I always thought about it as unnatural and counter intuitive, so I think adding a cross-able bunch of reeds or whatever coherent would less confuse the new player.

    You should probably think of something better then cross-able weeds. Those don't explain everything and are no different then not having them. Would reeds explain why you can't ward where Roshan is? I don't think anything would really explain that except for a visual aura that causes a tooltip to appear, but things like that just kind of clutter the screen.

    Eventually the learn tab will probably have links to mechanics and new players can look it up, you know if they are too lazy to visit playdota.com. I think that is good enough, but maybe it's not.

      Its not a bad idea, but given how counter intuitive it is, like you say, maybe it does deserve some extra thinking
      I like the way the pit is set up right now with the doodads in there, but maybe something along the line on the way in makes sense

        what about a waterfall? it's a river afterall.

        the main problem is the visibility of the rosh pit though. so it shouldnt block the vision.

              As long as it clears instantly after you've gained vision of Roshan's pit (your hero, allies, spells), I'm all in for this.
