    [Confirmed] Linking spells dont update the link position when the target isnt visible

    Any spell that draws a link is bugged when it comes to losing vision of the unit. The link should follow the unit, even if you lose vision of it. While in Dota 2, the link stops where you lost vision of the affected unit.

    Dream Coil:
    Spoiler: 





    Tether:
    Spoiler: 





    Flaming Lasso:
    Spoiler: 




    Pounce:
    Spoiler: 





    Static Link:
    Spoiler: 




    Shackleshot
    Spoiler: 



    Shadow wave



    This isn't caused by FoW only, any kind of losing vision will cause this.

    In WC3, if you cast Dream Coil on a unit, and then it goes into FoW, the leash will visually follow them.

    Will test more and post videos.
    Doesn't this happen with all invisible units and all linked spells? Dream Coil, Pounce, Tether, Static Link?
    If you think I've closed or deleted a post unjustified, feel free to PM me and I'll explain it to you/discuss it with you further.

    Static Link gives (shared?) vision of the affected hero if it goes invisible, it should only show the link.
    If an enemy uses Tether on an enemy, and that enemy goes into FoW/invis then the link will visually stop where you lost vision, it should get updated with their location.


    It's a bit hard to test in WC3, since you lose control of an invis enemy, unlike Dota 2.

    Perhaps Buny can merge all of the reported bugs in one thread?

    If I merge the posts, then your post won't be the 1st post anymore.


    And you are only missing Shackleshot.
    Please, just call me buny.
