    Post Slark's Dark Pact - List of spells it won't remove.

    It always kinda bothered me how Slark's Dark Pact is not all that predictable in what it will remove or fail to remove.

    So i tested out each and every hero in the game against Slark and his Dark Pact in a Dota 2 lobby (latest version).

    It would be nice if you, Dota 2 devs, would take a look at this list and decide are all these spells supposed to resist being removed by Slark's Dark Pact.


    Below are the all the spells that will NOT be removed by Slark's Dark Pact
    - keep in mind that certain spells like Pudge's Rot and Sniper's Shrapnel are not included, since they reapply their debuff extremely rapidly.

    1. Huskar
    Burning Spear debuff

    2. Centaur
    Stampede slow

    3. Tusk
    Frozen Sigil slow
    Walrus Punch knockup

    4. Earth Spirit:
    Magnetize (ultimate)

    5. Timbersaw:
    Whirling Death debuff
    Chakram's slow

    6. Bristle:
    Quill Spray stacking debuff

    7. Ursa
    Fury Swipe (debuff)

    8. Riki
    Smoke Bomb's silence/slow

    9. Sniper
    Assassination debuff (1.7 duration)

    10. Naga
    Song (ultimate)

    11. Silencer
    Curse of the Silent debuff (if Dark Pact casted before Curse application)
    Last Word debuff (if Dark Pact casted before Last Word application)

    12. Disruptor
    Thunder Strike
    Glimpse
    Static Storm (ult)

    13. Sand King
    Caustic Finale (passive)

    14. Axe
    Berserker Call (AoE taunt)

    15. Slark
    Pounce and Essence Shift

    16. Doom
    Doom (ult)

    17. Nightstalker
    Darkness vision reduction at night

    18. Undying
    Decay debuff (strength drain)

    19. Razor
    Static Link debuff
    Eye of the Storm debuff

    20. Medusa
    Stone Gaze's slow (the stun is removed)

    21. Bloodseeker
    Rupture

    22. Faceless
    Chronosphere

    23. Spectre
    Spectral Dagger debuff

    24. Viper
    Corrosive Skin (passive)
    Viper Strike (ultimate)

    25. Venomancer
    Poison Sting (passive)

    26. Necrolyte
    Reaper's Scythe (ultimate)

    27. Dark Seer
    Ion Shell (when cast on Slark)

    28. Shadow Demon
    Disrupt
    Soul Catcher
    Demonic Purge

    29. Obsidian Destroyer
    Astral Imprisonment and Intellect Steal debuff

    30. Invoker
    Tornado
    Forge Spirit's debuff
    Deafening Blast
    Icewall (lasting debuff)


    I hope this list proves useful in eliminating bugs from the game

    Did you check WC3 Dota when you made that list?
    Pretty sure many of the listed ones are not removed by Dark Pact.

    Below are the all the spells that will NOT be removed by Slark's Dark Pact
    - keep in mind that certain spells like Pudge's Rot and Sniper's Shrapnel are not included, since they reapply their debuff extremely rapidly.

    1. Huskar
    Burning Spear debuff Intended

    2. Centaur
    Stampede slow Intended

    3. Tusk
    Frozen Sigil slow It's an aura. It re-applies its effect immediatly
    Walrus Punch knockup every forced movement is not supposed to get canceled by purges or anything alike.

    4. Earth Spirit:
    Magnetize (ultimate) Intended

    5. Timbersaw:
    Whirling Death debuff Intended
    Chakram's slow It re-applies immediatly when you stay inside it.

    6. Bristle:
    Quill Spray stacking debuff Intended

    7. Ursa
    Fury Swipe (debuff) should get dispelled

    8. Riki
    Smoke Bomb's silence/slow Once again, an effect which gets re-applied instantly.

    9. Sniper
    Assassination debuff (1.7 duration) Intended. The icon debuff is only to warn you that you are targeted by Assassination. It being purgable would be an advantage for sniper

    10. Naga
    Song (ultimate) Get's re-applied instantly

    11. Silencer
    Curse of the Silent debuff (if Dark Pact casted before Curse application) Intended. Only spell casts debuff it
    Last Word debuff (if Dark Pact casted before Last Word application) Same as above

    12. Disruptor
    Thunder Strike Intended
    Glimpse Intended
    Static Storm (ult) Why are you even listing these? They are periodic aoe effects which instantly re-apply their effect.

    13. Sand King
    Caustic Finale (passive) should get purged

    14. Axe
    Berserker Call (AoE taunt) Intended

    15. Slark
    Pounce and Essence Shift Intended

    16. Doom
    Doom (ult) Intended

    17. Nightstalker
    Darkness vision reduction at night Periodic re-applying..

    18. Undying
    Decay debuff (strength drain) Intended

    19. Razor
    Static Link debuff Intended
    Eye of the Storm debuff Intended

    20. Medusa
    Stone Gaze's slow (the stun is removed) The slow should get purged. Are you sure you weren't still facing her?

    21. Bloodseeker
    Rupture Intended. Only death removes it

    22. Faceless
    Chronosphere Seriously??

    23. Spectre
    Spectral Dagger debuff Intended

    24. Viper
    Corrosive Skin (passive) Intended
    Viper Strike (ultimate) The first bugged one, but it's already known

    25. Venomancer
    Poison Sting (passive) I think this gets dispelled..

    26. Necrolyte
    Reaper's Scythe (ultimate) The stun should get debuffed, but not the damage after the delay. But it's already reported bug aswell.

    27. Dark Seer
    Ion Shell (when cast on Slark) Intended

    28. Shadow Demon
    Disrupt Intended
    Soul Catcher Intended
    Demonic Purge Intended

    29. Obsidian Destroyer
    Astral Imprisonment and Intellect Steal debuff Intended

    30. Invoker
    Tornado Intended
    Forge Spirit's debuff Intended
    Deafening Blast The knock back shouldn't be purgable. Not sure about the debuff
    Icewall (lasting debuff) Intended. The slow comes from an aura.

    "keep in mind that certain spells like Pudge's Rot and Sniper's Shrapnel are not included, since they reapply their debuff extremely rapidly."

    First you are writing this, but you still list lots of aoe effects which get re-applied "extremely rapidly" which would be instantly.
    Dark Pact doesn't make you immune to debuffs for that one second. It simply debuffs you every split second once. It's not a completely free debuff timeframe for Slark in which can resist things like chronosphere.

    @ bu3ny

    Oh dear, sorry about that!
    My brain did a complete failure right there :/ i got no clue why i left those spells in there (like chronosphere) - sorry again!

    However the testing itself was absolutely flawless, i tested each spell that resisted Dark Pact at least 3 times.
    The only possible mistake in testing could be about Medusa's ultimate, but i think i tried moving my Slark away from her and the slow debuff was still un-dispellable.

    Either way i am happy i could try and provide feedback to the dev team

    Poisons can't be purged, isn't that intended?

    It seems that all poisons should be dispellable, according to Bu3ny (aside from corrosive skin).

    Don't bump old outdated threads.

    Duel not being dispellable is intended.
