Information An Interesting bug with devour

Hi:

First of all, I'm not sure if this post should be here, if it is neccesary, please move it to the right place.

I was working in my map Power of Corruption trying to solve an annoying bug with the devour ability which was pointed me out by Jigrael. The enemies couldn't be devoured by the Naga Turtles, even an easy enemy worker (level 0, organic, no hero).

Well, then I reviewed all the units levels, the devour ability and nothing. Then, yesterday, I did one change in one unit, I tested it, and Voila!!! it works!!!!

In my map the Nagas fight against the demons, and I set all the naga enemies the Demon Race in the object editor. Well, guess what??.... for doing that, it doesn't matter if the unit has its level less or equal than 5 or if it's organic; if the unit has been set as a Demon, those units would BECOME invulnerable to Devour ability, only for that. The reason is still unknown by me, and the worst thing is this ability can't be customized to target a demon unit, so I presume that it's a harcoded bug.

I think this is an interesting tip which can be used in some way, or just for the Bugs database.

Handy WE tips...?

Didn,t know about that. maybe its meant, like Death Pact only affecting undead. or maybe Blizzard rushed it and ruined yet another ability.

just a tip, if your devour is used in a spell for a dummy caster to cast it, you have to give it enough time to cast it, also there should be a second ability to devour. check that out too

I can confirm that neither Devour (or the Dragon version) can target "Demon" units. An interetsing observation. Possibly a blizzard effort to abalance the campaigns? It's note-worthy that all Demon units that appear as creeps in melee maps have the "Creep" race.

I can ensure you I'm not using devour as a dummy ability.


I suggest to make a test, put one creep unit and set it the race as Demon, put a unit controlled by you with devour (Dragon Turtle for instance), and make the test, this is not a dummy spell, is devour itself failing.

Bah, I did my test map where you can see clearly the bug.

Can't you just set your Demon race NOT Demons and something else instead like Civilian or something? I mean, what can happen? Just edit the devourable units god damn!

I think he's posting this more as a future warning for others and an interesting observation, rather than as an unsolvable issue.
