    [Confirmed] Swap while casting Illuminate

    I just figured that if Vengefull swaps Kotl while he is casting Illuminate then the Illuminate changes direction. Is this supposed to happen?

    Can anyone say for sure?

    In DotA1, start casting Illuminate creates a lightning ball at his position upon start channeling. The shockwave will come out of this orb into the direction Ezalor was facing upon start channeling it, and it doesn't matter what happened meanwhile with Ezalor.

    So basically, the direction and position of Illuminate should be set in stone once Ezalor starts channeling the spell.
    I tihnk the easiest way to fix this would be to make the blast come from a dummy unit, just like illuminate in Spirit Form.

    Confirmed. In WC3 the illuminate ends before he gets swapped so it shoots out at his old location in the direction he was facing.
