    [Confirmed] Dark Pact Removes Buffs Before Damaging Slark

    It should remove buffs on each tick immediately after damaging Slark. For instance, Decrepifying Slark should cause him to take one amplified instance of Dark Pact; this is currently impossible in Dota 2.

    This bug name is not appropriately titled. Please change the name, moderators. This is an extremely severe bug!

    The spell is supposed to repeatedly remove harmful effects but it is only doing it once!
    I will mercilessly add to my ignore list anyone that makes an incredibly annoying signature.

    No, I think you misunderstood this. Read it again.

    It's supposed to remove it just once. At the last/first self-damage tick only.

    No, I didn't. "It should remove buffs on each tick" is not in the title(and it isn't part of the name of the bug on the list either). Try arguing with me again. I know how the hero's first skill worked in the old game! Slark's the reason I never stopped playing.

    You are wrong.

    That quote is taken from his log for the changes in the 6.70 patch.

    The pulsing does both buff removal and damage. That means every time he is damaged he gets buffs removed. But not in Dota 2!

    An interesting note:
    There is a much more minor bug that if left unfixed while fixing this bug could become much more major all of a sudden!

    So if you developers want something fun to do and share, fix this bug and leave the other one unfixed and see what happens in the test client, and then quickly fix the other bug after someone makes some hilarious videos. Seriously though, this bug needs fixing! Obviously we can't have a 600+(really not sure how many pulses it is, but that's a relatively safe estimate for starters) health Slark killing himself from bumping into a cog, so make sure the other bug gets fixed, as well.

    It does remove buffs on more than just one tick.

    The problem here is that it removes them before doing damage.

    I don't want to. I've played over 400 matchmaking games with Slark in Dota 2. I have never seen him in this game remove buffs more than once in a single Dark Pact cast. Maybe you had Aphotic Shield cast on your Slark recently and the experience has corrupted your memory?
