    [Morphling] Morph Aghanim-Buff Spells

    I've tried to test every non-ultimate spell which has an aghanims buff. All spells were tested in a custom lobby hosted on valve server.

    Keeper of the Light - Non-Functional
    1. Pick Morphling, level 25, get aghs
    2. Cast "Morph" on Keeper of the Light after maxing his spells.
    3. Cast Illuminate and attempt to move.
    Result: Unable to move after beginning Illuminate cast
    Expected: With Aghanims, Morph should be able to move without having to channel Illuminate.

    Broodmother - Partially Functional
    Repeat step 1
    2. Cast "Morph" on Broodmother after maxing her spells.
    3. Cast Spin Web and step inside it
    4. Create
    Result: 8 charges of web, +100% ms, unlocked movespeed cap, webs are all destroyed when you temporarily swap back to morph, back to 8 charges upon returning.
    Expected: 20 charges of web, +100% ms, unlocked movespeed cap, webs remain intact until Morph buff expires (20 seconds, 40 when talented)

    Lone Druid - Partially Functional
    Repeat step 1
    2. Cast "Morph" on Lone Druid after maxing his spells.
    3. Summon Spirit Bear, then morph temporarily back and forth
    Result: Spirit bear is instantly destroyed when reverting to Morphling, and remains on cooldown when going back to Lone Druid form. Spirit bear is not tethered to Morph.
    Expected: Spirit bear will live for the full duration of the Morph buff, and then expire. With Aghs, it should also not be tethered. Spirit bear is not tethered to Morph.

    Expected Outcome Occurred - Fully Copied Aghanims spells/effects
    1. Chen - Holy Persuasion: ancient conversion effect
    2. Phantom Assassin - Blur: cooldown reset effect
    3. Terrorblade - Metamorphasis: fear effect
    4. Mirana - Starstorm: Autocast starfalls (Not affected by cooldown reduction)
    5. Nightstalker - Void: AoE and increased stun
    6. Silencer - Glaives of Wisdom: pierces immunity and doubled versus silenced targets
    7. Pangolier - Shield Crash: aoe attacks in every direction
    8. Outworld Devourer (Obsidian Destroyer) - Astral Imprisonment: 2 charges, reduced by CDR.
    9. Skywrath Mage: All morphed spells doubled correctly
    10. Storm Spirit - Electric Vortex: AoE pull correct
    11. Tinker: Laser and Heak-Seeking Missles correctly enhanced
    12. Windranger - Windrun: Two charges, max speed unlocked, +105% ms
    13. Wyvern - Arctic Burn: Toggleable with 15 mana/second cost.

    Unexpected Outcome Occurred: Aghanims Spells/Effects NOT copied
    1. Death Prophets Aghanims passive
    2. Enchantress improved attack range
    3. Meepo's Extra Clone (not really unexpected TBH)
    4. Monkey King army auto-summons

    Copied ONLY WHEN Target has Aghs already (Aghs Not necessary for Morph)
    1. Spectre - Shadow Step: fully copied (Reality is also copied)
    2. Grimstroke - Dark Portrait: fully copied
    3. Ogre Magi - Unrefined Fireblast: fully copied
    4. Zeus - Nimbus: fully copied

    The Spirit Bear interaction works just like it works for Rubick: Bear dies on spell loss. Morph uses the same mechanics that Spell Steal uses.
    Morphling technically loses his Morph stolen spells when switching forms, which is why the Bear dies.

    The same restriction applies to Spin Webs. They are destroyed when the spell is lost, just like with Spell Steal.

    The other 4 effects are bound to the respective heroes’ ults or require the ults to exist or be skilled, which does not apply when using Morph, since he does not copy ults.
    I am usually located at the end of the Alphabet.
