    [Fixed] Weird Courier + Syllabear's Spirit Bear interaction



    Summary:
    Courier benefits from items and can use them

    Repro Steps:
    1. Pick Sylla Bear
    2. Summon Spirit Bear
    3. Buy courier, pop it with Spirit Bear

    Result:
    Items are functional on courier. In order to use items which require mana you have to build a mana pool.
    Boots give + movement speed. You can use Dagon in e.g. combination with soul ring.

    Cosmetic item (for courier) do not apply.

    Expected Result:
    It is a standard courier with limitation. Same behaviour as when being popped with a hero.

    Helm of the Dominator (Dominate)
    Armlet of Mordiggian (Unholy Strength)

    Gem of True Sight (True Sight)
    Also Midas has a Courier Version in DotA, to prevent obvious abuse.

    yep can confirm this

    repo:
    give chicken to spirit bear --> use chicken from spirit bear -->all items are enabled

    expected result :

    any item is still disabled

    (random fact: it doesnt use a model if you have equipped one (cosmetic))

    In DotA 1, the Courier would benefit from all items on it that were owned by the owner of the Courier, except for a few items that were given a courier edition. Boots worked.

    I was going to report this in particular because it can lead to a Huge exploit regarding to Hand of Midas.

    Repro Steps:
    - Pick Sylabear
    - Buy many couriers
    - Buy 1 hand of Midas for every courier
    - Use every hand of Midas on each courier.

    Result: Profit

    Expected Result: Courier doesn't have Courier Version for Midas, and they don't share cooldown either.

    Video soon.

    Thank you. I leave it to you then. My computer is too bad to let me record stuff x).
    It is shown in the video that it is possible to dagon.

    Chances are it is not intended.

    Couriers weren't meant for participating in combat. They were meant to merely deliver items.
