    [Intended] Lone Druid's melee Attack Range is wrong (should be 150)

    In DotA 1, lone druid have [melee] attack ranges of 150 instead of the usual 128 for melee heroes.

    In DotA 2, they are 128.

    I am aware playdota.com says 128 for those heroes. If you fire up WC III DotA 1 6.77c, those three should have 150 attack range.

    edit: wups on DK, dk should be 128.

    The unit data shows that only Doom Bringer and Lone Druid in True Form have 150 attack range. Doom's range is 150 in Dota 2.

    Which is a good point; I have no idea how to check True Form Druid's attack range in Dota 2.

    there were some heros which had less than 128 attack range like naga.

    This whole thing came up back in this thread: http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=81455

    Last time I checked it's just Doom and Lone Druid that had documented changes to their ranges.

    I checked my unit dump of 6.77c and it's definitely only Doom and Lone Druid that are range 150. If there are any other heroes with longer range, it's not 150 (I just did a ctrl + f for "rangeN1=150").

    Can someone check if Lone Druid's range is 150? Just have Doom attack him once to get the correct range, then have Druid attack him back. If Druid has to move, his range is wrong.

    Also for some strange reason his transform time is set to 1.933 instead of 2 in the npc_abilities.txt with no cast time.. I'll report that later if no one does it first..

    This is interesting. In the hero description for Tauren Chieftain on the hero picker, it says attack range: 150. Is this just a text bug and TC should be 128?

    The Attack Range is definitely 128 for Tauren Cheiftain, but the tooltip does indeed say 150. The listed movement speed is correct (315).

    With the same test on Dota 2, Lone Druid's attack range is wrong. It's probably 128, and should be 150.

    If OP could be edited and this confirmed as a bug, would be best.
