Can someone please make a list of what Scepter does to every characters ultimate?
Leech (25) | December 15, 2011 12:14am
Each character that has an ult affected by Aghanim's Scepter says so in the ult tooltip. For example, Shadow Shaman's ultimate Mass Serpent Ward says UPGRADEABLE.
Muzugo | December 14, 2011 11:06pm
Hm, are they planing to involve some in-game list of what is Scepter doing with ultimates of heroes where is effect not mentioned? For example Tiny or Void? I must confess that I played DotA 1 for just few hours at all so is there any reason why is it like it is? Thx.
