    Question Phase Shift getting canceled by non-canceling item casts

    Summary:
    When you cast Shiva's while Phase Shifted you will lose all effects of Phase Shift, but continue to channel Phase Shift.

    Repro Steps:
    Buy Shivas on Puck and take 4 levels of Phase Shift (just to make the effect more easily observable). Cast Phase Shift and then Shivas while Phase Shift is still active. If you do this next to a neutral camp you can observe that you take damage despite continuing to channel Phase Shift.

    Result:
    You continue channeling Phase Shift but loose the invisibility and invulnerability. You can be attacked and take damage

    Expected Result:
    According to http://www.playdota.com/forums/showt...hift+shiva%27s you should loose invulneravility but remain Invisible(and still be a little glowing ball). Also I'm not sure about this but it seems strange to me that you would continue channeling even though Phase Shift doesn't do anything anymore.

    One possible reason it is different in Dota 2 is that puck is not made invisible and invulnerable when phaseshifting, but some other kind of status, which has caused bugs with direct-hp removal damage before.

    Either channeling should stop, or puck should maintain phaseshift, but this should be a bug. Added to common bugs sticky.

    Phaseshift should remain, because Shiva's isn't suppose to cancel channeling spells.

    If you phaseshift and subsequently activate Shivas, Puck will perform Shivas and stay in Phaseshift.
    You will then lose invulnerability but you are still invisible to enemies.
    That's in fact a bug since you lose both invulnerability and invisibilty in DotA 2.

    I mean for sake of consistency with what is seen. IMO, phaseshift should remain though.

    Phase shift is broken when interacting with all items that don't break channeling. (I think that was all items that don't break channeling, let me know if I missed one)

    Bump. This is still bugged.

    Right now it does not get canceled. The channeling continues, but Puck loses the status buff from Phase Shift.

    Here a comparison to another channeling spell



    The buff should not be removed when the spell is still channeling. So spells like invis from shadow blade, or blast from shivas guard should not make him lose the buff.

    The problem seems to be that the Phase Shift buff on Puck and the channeling are independant from each other.

    I remember that phase shift used to be not a channeling spell in Dota2. From the patch on the 92th of july 2011
    "Phase Shift is now a channeled ability, so it displays a channel bar and allows actions to be queued after it."

    The channeling itself works properly. But the buff still uses the old rules. So just "binding" the buff to the channeling should fix all thise problems.
    This bug is also caused by this. Glimpse does stop the channeling (the channeling bar disappears), but the buff ignores that.
    Please, just call me buny.
