Trap is a type of disable that completely or partially surrounds a unit with immobile objects or restricts their movement in such a way that they cannot escape. Traps do not prevent any actions, such as attacking or using abilities and items, from being performed. Spell interactions might be different for each traps with any escape skills.

Version history[]

  • Creeps no longer try to path around Fissure; they will wait for it to disappear.

Patch history[]

  • Changed creep and neutral pathfinding with Power Cogs, Ice Shards, Sprout and Fissure. These all now work similar to Earthshaker's Fissure, which has been changed to allow a limited amount of creep pathing around it.
