    [Confirmed] Skewer damage is applied too late after the dragging

    Looks like exactly the same bug as with Invoker's Tornado.

    Just like Tornado, Skewer applies its damage too late after the disable, so that certain spells can be casted, blocking the damage, or getting a spell off right before dying to Skewer damage.

    This spells can be used currently before Skewer deals its damage

    Bold Red = significant game impact, most likely will save your life from Tornado damage
    Red = Significant game impact
    Orange = noticable game impact
    Yellow = usually no game impact but it might happen, or no game impact other than in form of spell cooldowns
    Grey = no game impact


    1. War Cry (full effect)
    2. Unstable Concoction (instantly blows up, dealing no damage and 0.1 second aoe stun around Alchemist)
    3. Overcharge (full effect for a split second, so gets transferred to tethered allies, reduces Tornado damage, might survive thanks to that)
    4. Stampede (full effect)
    5. Whirling Death (full effect)
    6. Quill Spray (full effect)
    7. Walrus Punch (audio played, basically gets wasted)
    8. Rot (1 damage instance is dealt, slow is applied, small chance to deny self)
    9. Sprint (amplifies Tornado damage, so might cause death thanks to that)
    10. Rage (completely blocks Tornado damage)
    11. Shapeshift (causes visual glitch)
    12. Flesh Golem (applies the aura and since auras linger, debuff lasts 0.5 seconds on nearby enemies)
    13. Borrowed Time (heals Abaddon for Tornado damage if manually used)
    14. Precision Aura (applies buff to creeps for 0.5 seconds)
    15. Blade Fury (completely blocks Tornado damage)
    16. Doppelwalk (creates illusion)
    17. Refraction (full effect, blocks the Tornado damage)
    18. Trap (full effect)
    19. Shadow Walk (visual effect and sound plays, basically gets wasted)
    20. Engrage (sound plays, gets wasted)
    21. Flak Cannon (gets wasted)
    22. Rabid (sound plays, gets wasted)
    23. Rip Tide (full effect)
    24. Berserker's Rage (sound plays, bugs UI until respawn)
    25. Whirling Axes (melee) (sound plays, gets wasted (axes disappear when Troll dies))
    26. Battle Trance (full effect)
    27. Plasma Field (full effect)
    28. Strafe (visual effect and sound plays, gets wasted)
    29. Skeleton Walk (visual effect and sound plays, gets wasted)

    34. Shadow Dance (sound plays, gets wasted)
    35. Split Shot (a game changer!)
    36. Mana Shield (reduces Tornado damage, might survive thanks to that)
    37. Windrun (visual effect and audio plays, applies aoe slow for 1 second)
    38. Voodoo Restauration (one instance of heal, might survive thanks to that)
    39. Pulse Nova (one instance of damage, might be lethal to nearby enemies)
    40. Firefly (visual effect and audio plays, gets wasted)
    41. Quas (the extra regen might save your life!)
    42. Wex (another game changer!)
    43. Exort (this might win you the game!)
    44. Invoke (yes, it fully works, you invoke a spell before you die)
    45. Ghost Walk (slows for a short time in aoe)


    1. Reveal (Dust, full effect)
    2. Regenerate (Bottle, full effect, the regen might save you!)
    3. Energy Charge (Magic Stick, full effect, the 150 burst heal might save you) (example of Magic stick saving lives)
    4. Ghost Form (Ghost Scepter, amplifies Tornado damage, you might die to the amplified damage)
    5. Energy Charge (Magic Wand, same as Magic Stick, but with up to 225 burst heal)
    6. Sacrifice (Soul Ring, full effect, the hp cost bring your hp down to lethal range so that Tornado kills you)
    7. Phase (Phase Boots, sound plays, gets wasted)

    13. Endurance (Drum of Endurance, full effect)
    14. Restore (Mekansm, full effect, will save your life in normal circumstances, because the heal is higher than highest Tornado damage!)
    15. Barrier (Pipe of Insight, applies buff on allies in range, you might think this can safe you aswell, but it doesn't. You don't get the buff, Tornado deals damage before you get it)
    16. Demonic Summoning (Necronomicon 1/2/3, full effect)
    17. Reset Cooldowns (Refresher Orb, full effect)
    18. Toogle Unholy Strength (Armlet of Mordiggian, toggling it off might kill you thanks to the 450 hp loss before Tornado damage, toggling it on might save you with the hp boost from one instance of str)
    19. Shadow Walk (Shadow Blade, sound plays, gets wasted)
    20. Toogle Radiance (Radiance, no damage since its 1st instance is 1 second after activation)

    Skewer buff is not applied instantly

    1.Pick Magnus
    2.Get nyx as enemy
    3.skill spike
    4.use skewer on nyx and then use spike before skewer ends
    The damage will not be applied to nyx it will reflect to magnus

    it should damage nyx even if he used spike before skewer ends

    This bug also works on bkb and lifestealer's rage
