    [IDEA] Unique visuals for fortified structures

    As it stands in Dota 2 fortified structures use the exact same effect as a BKB'ed hero, however this is visually confusing and doesn't make much sense.
    What I'm suggesting is a custom visual effect for fortified structures - this is visually much less confusing to people such as new players, and could even better convey the idea that this structure will not take damage.
    Something as simple as large pulsating shields surrounding the tower could even work well, but post any ideas or suggestions that you may have in the comments.

    it shouldn't have the same "glow" as bkb
    Never underestimate the power of the masses.

    Team-specific ones would be cool... A green floral shield for Radiant and a dark red volcanic shield for Dire.

    Yeah that would definitely be perfect! Just as long as it's tastefully and subtly done.

    It would be cool if the vines wrapping around the radient towers would grow and thicken, encasing the tower in almost a bark like defence. The dire tower's inner flame could grow, surrounding the tower in fire. It would fit the theme of both the ancients because the radient ancient has trees/vines growing with it, and the dire ancient is already on fire.
