Hi everyone,

After reading a post in the bug reports over at the League Forums about Caitlyn's traps revealing wards, I became pretty interested in how Caitlyn's traps reveals stealthed units. After some testing, I discovered that after a champion steps on a trap, both Caitlyn's and Nidalee's traps (and in all likelyhood Kog Maw's ult too)can reveal all stealthed units around the champion that steps on the trap, including wards, enemy champions that are invisible, and things like Teemo shrooms. Its also possible to hit these revealed items. Is this a glitch, or was the status effect inflicted by these traps intended to have this effect? Either way it doesn't seem game breaking, but could possibly be used to someone's advantage under a set of somewhat strange circumstances.

Ward



Akali



Teemo


(bad quality for faster youtube uploads.)

Thanks!
(Hope this was in the right forum btw, sorry if its not)

Wow, that would be sort of awesome. However I doubt if this is useful in any way :P

Didn't know this could happen, thanks for the info ;)

I remember when you could Bushwhack / Pounce the enemy ward and then kill it during the reveal time...

OP Nidalee was OP

It's supposed to reveal stealthed champions, I doubt it's supposed to reveal wards.

But luther, now we are talking about revealing OTHER stealthed champs than the one who steps into it...

After some more testing, I get a feeling that when Riot made the game, they made stealth a status that is shared by all units (wards, champions, etc.), Also, I'm pretty sure the "eyes" that are applied as a status effect by those traps are actually an AoE, so everything with the stealth effect in that area would be revealed. The undifferentiated stealth status on wards and champions is the main issue, and Riot probably overlooked this. Either way, y'all are probably right, and there's no real use to this : P


@Albabeat: Nidalee's traps actually still do this, and so does Kog's ult.

He was trying to point out that they don't do it directly. Which they appropriately don't.
