    Oh, for chips' sake, it's not that hurr durr always invisible can't touch dis, it's that he actually becomes very, very hard to gank even with Dust or Gem and becomes a better mindgamer+chaser. Personal opinions, you know.

    There were those people who actually tested Lothars on Riki and found out that he indeed still has a fade time when using Lothars under the effects of his ulti.

    Leaving unkillableness aside...

    The difference between SF's ulti and Tinker's ulti is that SF's ulti has a cast time, while Tinker's has a channel time. Cast time spells don't break invisibility until they finish casting, while channeling spells should break invisibility as soon as you start casting.

    You can tell which is which by when the mana cost and cooldown are invoked: Tinker pays mana as soon as he starts casting, SF pays mana when he manages to finish casting.

    That's what I was about to say too. But, yeah, it is inconsistent after all. In DotA, he would become visible at an instant, in Dota 2, there is a fade time. Screenshots:
    DotA, Tinker in Lothars. And here's him rearming right after going invisible.
    Dota 2, Tinker in Shadow Blade. And here's him rearming right after going invisible.
