    DotA v6.78 - 100% legit leaked changelog



    - Sticky Napalm can now be purged and is removed on Magic Immunity.
    - Neutral creeps do not ignore being Sticky Napalmed anymore.
    - Disallowed Batrider access to impassable areas on the map borders when using Firefly.


    - Nightmare mechanics tweaked:
    | The nightmared unit is now completely invulnerable and
    | doesn't wake up from spell damage, except from Bane's
    | own spells.
    | Bane also has the ability to wake the unit up at any
    | time through his sub-ability.
    | Other units can still transfer the debuff to
    | themselves. Any attack order from less than
    | 400 units will instantly transfer it, even from
    | non-adjacent melee units.

    - Brain Sap now heals Bane for the amount of damage it actually dealt.


    - Armor increased by 1.
    - Meat Hook's damage tweaked:
    | Deals 100/160/220/280 pure damage on impact + 10 per | 100 units dragged.

    Chaos Knight

    - Chaos Bolt tweaked: the damage is now always inversely proportional to the stun duration.
    - Reality Rift now rotates both heroes by a random angle (doesn't always guarantee a Tether stun).
    - Reality Rift now destroys trees around it.
    - Reality Rift now dodges projectiles.


    - Remade Test of Faith's nuke:
    | old: deals random 200-400 pure damage
    | new: The Holy Knight punishes the unrepentant
    | for each mortal sin they committed.
    | Deals 20/80/140/200 pure damage + bonus damage
    | depending on the number of allied units that the
    | enemy hero killed in the last 30 seconds.
    | Lane/neutral creep: +10 damage
    | Persuaded creep: +40 damage
    | Hero: +100 damage

    - Test of Faith's teleport now dodges projectiles.


    - Tweaks to Power Cogs: slightly reduced their size, increased count from 8 to 10, added animation when they are ejected from Clockwerk, now deployed in a circle shape. Behavior stays almost the same, but it is easier now to see and predict how the spell will react.
    - Hookshot now dodges projectiles.

    Crystal Maiden

    - Movespeed increased by 5
    - Brillance Aura increased by 0.5 at all levels.


    - Shallow Grave can now be cast on magic immune allies.
    - Weave also affects creeps.

    Drow Ranger

    - Marksmanship reworked:
    | "The Drow ranger has refined her archery prowess
    | along her solitary existence. Whether this is now
    | habit or shyness, she is only able to focus when
    | left alone."
    | Passively grants 40/60/80 agility, but bonus
    | is lost if any allied hero is within 400 aoe.


    - Demonic Conversion can be cast on any item left on the ground, apart from Divine Rapier.


    - Flak cannon reduces Gyrocopter's attack speed by 40%.
    - Base intelligence decreased by 3.


    - Berserker Blood now gives bonus strength and agility in lieu of damage and attack speed.
    - Added a mini-stun on Life Break (pierces magic immunity).

    - Skewer is interrupted if Magnus gets disabled.
    - Empower cooldown increased from 12 to 20.


    [Partial remake, emphasis on making him truer to his morphling theme, and sort of a unique anti-carry]

    - Stats reworked:
    | BAT nerfed from 1.7 to 1.8
    | Strength changed to 20+2
    | Agility changed to 20+2
    | Intelligence changed to 20+2

    - Morph reworked:
    | Rate increased from 1/2/3/4 to 2/3/4/5 per second.
    | Shifting stats keeps Morphling's hp proportional.
    | Manacost removed.

    - Replicate reworked:
    | Morphling assumes the shape of another unit. Can be any
    | hero or creep. Morphling assumes every particularity of
    | the unit: damage, range, movespeed, animations, stats,
    | etc. He retains his own items and his own spells (he
    | can Morph his new stats if he replicated a hero).

    - Aghanim's Scepter upgrade tweaked:
    | Doesn't increase damage nor range anymore.
    | Damage type is changed to pure.

    | (note: this effectively gives the same damage
    | increase as before against targets with 25% magic
    | resistance)


    - Infest AoE damage now only occurs when consuming a creep (allied or enemy).
    - Rage can be purged.


    - Mana Drain can now increase Lion's mana beyond his max pool, in similar fashion to Soul Ring. Lasts a maximum of 15 seconds.
    - Mana Drain can be cast on allies to transfer mana.
    - New Aghanim's Scepter upgrade:
    | If Finger of Death deals the killing blow, the unit is
    | successfully turned inside out in a gory explosion,
    | dealing mixed damage equivalent to 25% of the target's
    | max hp in a 700 aoe.

    Lone Druid

    - Spirit Bear tweaked:
    | Spirit Bear's hp rescaled from 1400/1800/2300/2700 to
    | 1000/1600/2200/2800.
    | The death of the Spirit Bear now inflicts damage to the

    | of fixed damage.

    | Entangle changed to an active ability. 14 seconds
    | cooldown, 150 manacost.

    - Reworked how Unstable Current's purge works:
    | The purge is only activated once, when an enemy hero
    | damages Razor through a spell or an attack, or when
    | Razor damages an enemy hero through a spell or attack.
    | The purge is ready after a 24/18/12/6 seconds cooldown
    | or after Razor travels 1800/1400/1000/600 units.

    - Eye of the Storm is now passive (can be toggled off).


    - Smoke Screen now slows turning speed by 50% (doesn't stack with Sticky Napalm).
    - Blink Strike now dodges projectiles

    - Reality can now be cast on any illusion of Spectre.
    - Reality cooldown from 10 to 3.
    - Using Reality now dodges projectiles.
    - Dispersion reworked with a new active part:
    | Passive: Reflects 8/12/16/20% of damage.
    | Active: When cast, damage inflicted to Spectre is
    | silently stored for a short duration. When the duration
    | ends, 50% of the total damage count is dispersed around
    | Spectre while Spectre is healed for the other 50%.
    | Lasts 4 seconds, 30 seconds cooldown, no manacost.
    | (note: using the active doesn't disable the
    | passive part. It is indistinguishable for
    | enemies.)

    - Aghanim's Scepter cooldown reduction from 20 seconds to 14.

    - Living Armor mana cost increased from 25 to 40.


    - Snowball's minimum speed increased from 200 to 400 (only relevant when Tusk is slowed).

    - Range increased to 350
    - Can be used on observer and sentry wards.


    - Maim doesn't slow attack speed anymore.
    - Maim has an additional effect: Reduces heals by 40% (Greater Maim: 50%) for the maimed unit. This includes every healing ability, regeneration and lifesteal.

    Smoke of Deceit

    - New alternative ability: Can be used to obfuscate one of your item slots. The enemy team will see a special icon instead of the item contained in the slot of your choice.

    This consumes the Smoke of Deceit. Only hides the item icon, not its bonuses. The effect lasts 60 seconds, and can be used on an empty slot.

    | In DotA: type "-smoke #slotnumber".
    | In DOTA2: right-click on smoke to choose slot.

    Tango of Essification

    There is a mistake in that changelog. Sticky napalm is already removed by bkb. Mistakes decrease the credibility of your so called "leaked changelog" you know?

    Sorry but i didn't claim that it was a real changelog or something, i just wanted to share it in PD, go to the source and talk with OP.

    Don't worry, I'm not trying to point a finger at you. I'm just saying that this is most likely untrue. And will do.

    This has been circulating for a while

    While I think this is fake, some of this does seem like the kind of changes Icefrog has been making in the last few patches.

    It's not horrible, I wouldn't be disappointed if it was true. Not 6.75 disappointed anyway.

    I like how the Author is saying he copied it from PlayDota. Full Circle FTW

    also the Morphling changes would make him a fun hero. I would just spend the entire game pretending to be a neutral creep, all while yelling at the other neutral creeps attacking me "WHY WON'T YOU LOVE MEEEEEE?!" ...I'm not very fun to play with sometimes...

    If the nightmare nerf would be for real, i would stop to play dota-

    so i'm kinda glad it is fake.


    Also, wtf are those () things?


    Also, wtf is timbersaw?

    Don't worry, the mods can kill the real changelog whenever they wanted.

    The Dispersion active and Nightmare are the give aways imo

    Dispersion would be so incredibly broken

    The smoke of deceit thing is an interesting concept but I'm not sure how worth it that would be.

    I have to admit some of these are entertaining as hell.
