Dota Myths and the True Facts



Myth:
Pressing F1 or ctrl + 1234567890 which already binded to your hero all together will make you regen faster than normal in your fountain.
Fact:
False. The regeneration rate is still the same, only the number refreshes faster.


Myth:
Buying Vlads will get your illusions a lifesteal.
Fact:
False. Illusion didn't get the lifesteal effect from Vampiric Aura or cleave from Battlefury. However, illusion can still get Feedback orb from Diffusal Blade (only melee) and Radiance aura.




Myth:
Using Battlefury, the Omnislash are cleaved.
Fact:
False. Only the additional slash will be cleaved. The true slash will remain intact without cleave.


Myth:
Quelling Blade makes last hitting easier.
Fact:
Half true. While it can help you increase the damage for last hitting creeps, on some heroes like Leviathan, Nerubian Weaver and Juggernaut, their attack animation is changed and thus make it harder to last hit.


Myth:
Stacking Vanguards increases your block damage.
Fact:
False. Stacking Vanguards increases the block chance, not the block number.

With 2 Vanguards you will still block 40/20 (melee/range) dmg, but at a higher percentage (70% for 1, 91% for 2).


Myth: 
Dropping items that give int but no mana reg while at fountain will make you regen faster.

Fact: 
True. Fountain mana regeneration is based on max mana % + 7 mana/second. So, dropping an energy booster, int threads, etc, will make you regenerate your mana faster at fountain.

  4. erm can i know how to stacking things works? like 1 vanguard blocks 70% and 2 vanguards blocks 91%. How to form to 21%?

    ReplyDelete
  5. @override182 - Yeah ^^
    @anonymous - It works like this 70% + (70% x (100%-70%)) = 70% + (70% x 30%) = 70% + 21% = 91%

  6. What about stacking of poorman's shield? Does the damage block increase if we buy two or more PMS?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Stacking vanguard can easily compute by this formula
    1-(1-70%)(1-70%)=91%

    ReplyDelete

  15. 'However, illusion can still get Feedback orb from Diffusal Blade'

    That is why Ai chaos knight/naga siren have diffusal blade as their first deluxe item.

  17. Since cleave works during additional slashes, shouldn't the answer be half true instead?

  26. WTF NOOB RANGED ILUS WITH DIF/BLD USE FEEDBACK

    ReplyDelete
  27. It should be int Treads

    ReplyDelete
  28. cuz their main skills is making their illusions.. so with diffusal blade and a 4 msec stun or net with 4 illutions wacking you drains your mana like at a insane rate.. try it its awsome.. naga espicially will own with tht inven
    btw one more fact if difusal drains a certain amount of mana per hit it also gives the same amount of extra damage... so if illutions also wack you the dps ur under along with the fact tht your going to get outta mana soon  = pawnage :Dhave fun my friend
