    [Fixed] Rubick Stealing Global Silencer /w Scepter

    Summary:
    Silencer's "Global Silence" is not placing "curse of the silent" on enemies when used by rubick with scepter. This is probably because when Rubick uses "Global Silence" the "Curse of the silent" debuff is calculated as if Rubick has no level in it.

    Repro:

    Level up Rubick and Silencer to lvl 6. or 16 so silencer gets max level curse and ult.
    Get Aghanim's scepter on Rubick
    Steal Silencer's "Global Silence" with Rubick
    Use "Global Silence" as Rubick.

    Result:

    Enemies are silenced by 5/6/7 seconds but "Curse of the silent" is not placed on any of them.

    Expected Result:

    Enemies are silenced by 5/6/7 and "Curse of the silent" is placed on each of them. The level of the debuff depends on silencer's level at "curse of the silent" when the ultimate was stolen by Rubick.

    Why would that be the expected result? Is it written in manual?

    Because that's what happens in similar cases? (aka Enigma)

    Yes.
    Rubick
    - Rubick can no longer steal the Aghanim upgrade of the enemy if they have Aghanim and he doesn't
    - Added Aghanim's upgrade: reduces cooldown from 20/18/16 to 5, increases cast range from 1000 to 1400 and makes all stolen spells be considered to have their Aghanim's upgrade

    Neither Icefrog nor Valve have ever enforced much strict rules for stolen skills that depend on other skills.

    He's right, just like Luna's Eclipse that is dependent in her lucent beam.

    It would make sense for it to trigger the level of Curse Silencer had at the time Global Silence was stolen, similar to Requiem of Souls / Eclipse / Black Hole etc.

    speaking of black hole, has midnight pulse been tested for this selfsame issue?
    I'm gonna go test it for fun.
    edit: works, it seems. Didn't bother to try with different ranks of pulse however.

    Tested it, and Rubick indeed never applies CotS regardless of Silencer's level of the ability or Aghanim's on either.

    Black Hole on the other hand works fine, however I discovered a bug while testing it which I've posted here.

    The difference here is that we have precedence. It doesn't in WC3 DotA either.
