I dont know if this is frowned upon, but there is a really good guide on playdota that lists everything linkens blocks.

Mentioning a guide from another site isn't frowned upon. Mentioning it WITHOUT LINKING IT, however...

I think the guide in question is this one. Bear in mind that it might be out of date; if you don't mind puting forth a modicum of effort, you can find (presumably) current info on Linken's/BKB spell interactions on the DotaFire pages for each hero or ability.

(Yes, I'm horribly aware that this is a dead thread; this message isn't so much for the posters above me as for posterity.)

It's generally a few, particular initiation abilities, ( Mirana arrow, Pudge hook), AoE abilities, ( Rot/ Midnight Pulse/Axe taunt/ Ice Blast), things whose main purpose isn't to directly damage you ( Blink Strike, for example), and a few particular ultimates or other abilities (Axe's Culling Blade, for example) get through the sphere, however.

Generally it's click-and-target spells (quick example, Tinker's Laser is blocked but Rockets aren't), and spells that are usually for a single target ( Fissure is blocked), but for a few heroes there are exceptions, as mentioned, Axe's Culling Blade. Generally there aren't really rules for which AREN'T, since Reaper's Scythe, for example, gets blocked.

That's about as much as I know, however. Usually, after a bit, you learn what does and doesn't, such as Mirana's arrow not being blocked.
