    We once could cast a 2nd ball lighting while in ball lightning, but it was draining immediately 100% of your current mana. I thought they fixed it, but seems they just disabled the lightining ball till they find how to fix the previous bug.

    And yes, I confirm the behaviour

    I thought this was a fix? There was a time where you could cast it while you were in it, but all it did was spend the initial cost (7% of max mana + 15) and do nothing else.

    Is it supposed to do more damage if you cast it while already in it?

    Casting a 2nd ball lithning do only (in dota1 since it doesn't work in dota2) add the speed of the 2nd to the first one.

    For example, you cast one, from left to right, and then cast an other one from your current position to the right, it will double your speed (for damage, i'm not sure if it will do according to time spent in rofl, or lenght -personnaly i think it's time spent-)
    If you cast one, from left to right, and then cast an other one from your current position to the left, you will stop moving, but stay in rofl, till either lack of mana, or till one of the two ult is over, thus making you move toward the direction of the ult that isn't over.

    Note that the duration of ball lightning aren't depending of if you reach the point or not, but it is counting the range from your location, then dividing by the speed, to know how long it last -at least it seems so-

    I'll send a replay to show it, and show also some more, just w8 a bit

    For the damage each ball deals damage independently depending on how much distance the ball moved you.

    Adding to the dicussion;

    Storm Spirit should not be able to change direction (turning) while in Ball Lightning. This leads to him able to quickly move forward and backwards, cast Electric Vortex too quickly, and otherwise buff him.
    Also, You shouldn't be able to cast Ball Lightning while in Ball Lightning....

    EDIT:
    I think it's a problem with cast animation, so now it's up in the air.

    @Quiesce.

    OP: "Description: Can't cast Ball Lightning while in Ball Lightning".
    Your post: "Also, You shouldn't be able to cast Ball Lightning while in Ball Lightning....".

    Do you see a problem in it?
