    Im quite sure he can if he run on the path, but can't if he's shoot the dagger one direction and run in another direction. Please check it again.

    That is correct, in dota 1 he can dagger anywhere then phase through anything.

    what this pub means is the daggers buff effect last longer when leaving the path of the dagger. it probably owuld solve some pathing issues that currently exist as well when you simple A click in certain directions because the game assumes you have no pathing then you leave the path and hit the trees. then you turn around to go around the normal way which contains your dagger and it just repeats.

    The problem here is that replicating the old mechanic (Dagger pathing lasts for a few seconds after leaving the trail) precisely would be a substantial buff. We need to keep in mind that the need to spam-click/rally point through terrain is gone, it's now possible to go though a cliff or wall of trees with a single click. The trail effect lasting a few seconds on you helped counter this in WC3, going where you wanted to was difficult, but you had a little wiggle room if you screwed up. Having both the easy movement from DOTA2 and the long-lasting trail from WC3 would be extremely powerful.

    edit -- point being, replicating the WC3 mechanic to the letter isn't realistic (e.g. we're not going to add the spam clicking back) and replicating everything except that would likely be imbalanced. The current setup of "you can walk easily, but only on the path" seems like a decent compromise to me and also fits the theme of the ability a bit better, that you actually have to care about where you throw it. Note that this gives some extra incentives to manually target it along the ground, which adds some extra skill to it there. Anyways, the new setup might not be the perfect compromise, but I don't think it's bad by any means.
