    I want all the DotA players to share some fun facts about DotA or DotA 2. Here are a few starters :

    If you activate slark's ultimate and get into an enemy's base the fountain doesn't even touch you !

    If you pick abbadon and run into an enemy's base you get healed by the fountain's attacks !

    Dazzle's ulti protects from fountains attacks. Also void, omni knight can do so

    Pudge's hook or rubicks telekinesis or Legions or venge's ulti can be used to pull enemies to your base.

    Kunkka's tidebringer spell along with 1 divine and a battlefury with his core can kill 4 enemies at once (YES HEROES) or 5 maybe but 4 is my max.

    I have more stored in but i tend to be forgetful sometimes. Feel free to share more and know more !

    Zeus is a great hero kill stealer.

    Zen (Arc Warden) is the easiest first kill character.

    Master of laid back playing : Goblin Techies.

    Goblin Techies is a real pain especially if the opponent is a master of traps.

    Some items in Dota 1 have funny short description such as Phase Boots (-noclip), Staff of Wizardry (You shall not pass!), Claymore, Vitality, Point and Energy Booster, etc.

    if you're interested is such things as mechanics you maybe want to look at the vids 'Dota 2 Mythbusters' by Dotacinema on youtube ;)
     
  6. Bounty Hunter's Jinada + Divine Rapier causes you to 1-2 shot heroes.

    Stacking Battlefury can cause your splash damage to be greater than your attack dmg.

    In dota 1 Rubick can steal Pudge's hook or Venge's ulti, then trap people on cliffs and trees with Blink Dagger permanently (or until ally rescues them or they scroll somehow)


    There were vids on youtube about funny dota stuff.

    Funny Item tooltips :

    Divine rapier : With Great Power comes great responsibility. (A dialogue from spiderman)

    If you kill axe when he's spinning, he stands like an idiot and suddenly disappears.

    If Clockwerk Goblin traps Yurnero with his 2nd skill, he condemned himself to death (Bladestorm yeah...)

    Phantom Lancer can dodge ANY spell with Doppelganger. Nevermore's ulti? Yes! Homing missile? Yes! All other spells? Yes!

    If the enemy has Gem of True Sight or Sentry Wards does it still dodge spells?

    Yes I suppose because he doesn't become invisible during Doppelganger.

    I though he turns visible when he casts Doppelganger. I haven't played DotA for a long time and I forgot some skills.

    No i don't think it will dodge the projectile because you are visible to the enemy. It has the same mechanics with Shukuchi, Wind Walk, Permanent Invisibility, etc.

    The new Phantom Lancer no longer has a DoppleWalk ability. It now has a DoppleGanger ability.
