Yeah, Knite's right.

I don't think you can use HoM and Devour on the same creep at the same time. He was just saying that HoM + Devour = Gold Mine.

@352 btw how did you do it on doom ? i can't use devour and midas at the same time... did you use the shift button?

358 By KNiteman 2012-10-20

@lolopo, I have also seen that with Enigma getting Meka before Dagger + BKB. The Nevermore buff is quite imba because it makes your enemy think twice about ganking him but range is the weakness of that buff since you aren't close enough to take fatal damage. The game hasn't realy changed that much but Dragonus is such an imba support.

357 By lolopo 2012-10-20

@hyperion, not for everybody i heard that some pros rush meka on him and then get dagger+bkb...
btw my question is not answered yet, does it affect the exp gain?
@kniteman those heroes need the buffs esp silencer and warlock theyre very underpicked (and the maiden and jak buff might change the way people play her) nowadays... but i don't like the other nerfs and buffs esp on the carries... like the jugg and the pl and the trax buff(including the never buff)..

356 By Hyperion1O1 2012-10-20

Enigma doesn't need midas. He rushes dagger as a top priority. Bkb comes second and I've seen games of Enigma not needing Bkb at all.

355 By KNiteman 2012-10-20

@lolopo. Well Icey did buff Lucy with his LvL Death doing 20% max HP and now Devour scales better. Icey is buffing all the wrong heroes, Warlock, Silencer, etc all those heroes need buffs to their Ultis. Even with the Morphling nerf he is still imba.
@topic, HoM on Enigma? I know he isn't a carry but wouldn't it allow him to get his BKB + Dagger faster.

354 By lolopo 2012-10-19

@352 wtf is that?
happened to me accidentally yesterday with furion when i was hitting a ranged creep...
@kniteman that must be a sarcasm or wtf? that would certainly nerf those already underpicked heroes esp warlock... but you should take into consideration that powerful summons(those with long cd's) are magic immune so no devouring... and btw does it also affect the exp gain?

353 By Zxcvbnm11592 2012-10-19

Oh, and Blademail, sorry.

352 By Zxcvbnm11592 2012-10-19

Funny you guys should mention this, I played a game with Doom this morning, and with this thread being recently commented on, it occurred to me to try it. The amount of gold you get is not even funny. 25 mins in, Midas, Vanguard, Radiance and Scepter.

Not if we keep it a secret among us

350 By KNiteman 2012-10-19

If it works then you could be onto something better than a gold mine, but do expect Icey to find out and stop the exploit.

349 By Hyperion1O1 2012-10-19

You can't use HoM on allied creeps. Devour is possible with Necro, I think but you won't gain the abilities. HoM + Devour, haven't seen that but I will try to make it work.

348 By KNiteman 2012-10-17

Can the exploit work by throwing the HoM animation then using Devour just before that?

347 By KNiteman 2012-10-17

If you dominate a creep can you use HoM on it? Does it also work with Devour? Would be cool if Lucy could eat Nercobook units... Maybe that should be his next buff, eat any creep except Roshan. Imagine Warlock with his Infernal and Lucy eats it to gain its abilities. Also can the exploit with with Devour?

346 By Hyperion1O1 2012-10-16

You would need to be a ranged hero to use that exploit properly. Harder for melees. I tried it when I was Naix and @338 statement about destroying the original bounty is mitigated.

345 By KNiteman 2012-10-16

@344 Then it means that it works! Double the gold and exp, kinda imba. Too bad it doesnt work on ancients or that would be imba.

344 By lolopo 2012-10-16

i saw it on rhasta too... casting HoM on a range creep and killing it with a spell at the same time the HoM projectile hits the creep

343 By KNiteman 2012-10-16

I saw an exploit using HoM and Morphling, just wanted to know if it works : basically when Morphling is attacking a creep and just before the projectile of his attack makes contact to kill the creep he cast Transmute on it so that you see the HoM fly and hit the creep though it died from his attack but does it still give him the gold and exp because the game was fooled into thinking it was alive, is that even possible?

342 By lolopo 2012-06-12

yeah yeah... but the point is this is a farming item that is recommended on carries but only viable on two heroes namely furion and the jungle clinkz...
IMO, midas should not be regarded as a farming item but rather a leveling item for jungler/gankers who seldomly goes to the lane to farm like fur/naix and clinkz...
as for furion i think dagon is better since it provides a good ganking item providing the same benefits without the risks of being seized early...
