    Last Word can't target Mechanical Units

    In DotA 1, Last Word can target and damage mechanical units. This can be used potentially for the purpose of quickly clearing a Siege creep when pushing a tower. In DotA 2, attempting to target a mechanical unit produces the "cannot target mechanical units" message that appears for other spells.

    Repro:
    1) Pick Silencer, skill Last Word.
    2) Cast Last Word on a Siege creep.

    Result:

    You are not allowed to target Last Word on the Siege creep, and the message for being unable to target mechanical units appears.

    Expected Result:

    Last Word can be successfully cast on the Siege creep, and the creep is damaged properly when the duration runs out.

    Confirmed.



    It should deal dmg, but apparently not disarm. (disarm part-[A2NW] has organic in targets type)

    it seems to fail to cast the disarm on it. might be a dota1 bug.

    @ doomsheep
    Last Word [A2NT] | targs1=air,enemies,ground,nonancient
    Last Word silence [A0LS] (soulburn) | targs1=air,friend,ground,neutral,organic
    Last Word disarm [A2NW] (drunkenhaze)| targs1=air,friend,ground,neutral,organic

    This could be easilly changed to the same parameters as LastWord, then it would not fail. For me it might be equally intentional exception or inconsistent bug.
    You might try mailing IceFrog about it though, as I don't really care about this issue as long as it's consistent with d1.
