I think it's fine. How else do you counter a magic immune magmus about to pwn your team?
First hero suggestion: Warlord

You can't purge Blood Hunters Silence because it counts as a buff, even when cast on an opponent. So to fix shrunken Head all the need to do is make it a debuff instead of a buff. If a teammate decides to purge u when you use shrunken head then its your problem.

I fully agree with the OP, even with the language. How does "spell immunity" equal "spell immunity with the exception of spells that dispel it." BKB was already nerfed heavily, this is just ridiculous.
Another thing is how the mods here never seem to be on your side. S2 is making HoN so much more pub friendly and less and less appealing to competitive, inhouse dota play.
You have to remember that most Mods are S2 fanboys as well, just given a pretty star.
No need to sugar-coat this issue or berate the OP, BKB being purgable is retarded, please fix this issue/bug.
Purge in its current form is waaaay too strong if it can negate avatar from SH. This needs to be fixed.
i found out the hard way that SH could be purgeable as i was hammerstorm vs electrician so he double countered me
boy was that a long game to win
leave it alone....IF purge cannot dispel "ultimate buffs" (ie: sven's/Hammer dude's ulti, Blood hunter's rupture, etc).
Otherwise, Shrunken Head must NEVER be dispellable. Has this been reported anyhows?
Why change it? If you take the time to farm BKB, and someone takes the time to farm purge blade just to counter it, that's part of the game. Change your strat accordingly.
As to protecting yourself from magmus... it's magical damage... you'd be surprised how well shamanic headdress works against all sorts of magic attacks. It won't help you much if you're an INT or AGI hero but if you're STR the headdress will make you highly resistant to magmus and other similar AoE damage.
Agree, purge should not remove the magic immunity aspect of shrunken head, being slowed through magic immunity is fine, losing it completely is not. Makes Elec that much better lol
On a sidenote I wouldn't call it worthless though lol. U'll still get it on tempest Soulstealer Pestilence Madman etc.
Oh Elec crushes Pestilence and Madman too. Score.
It shouldn't remove bkb effect, that's pathetic tbh. Slowing bkb users is ok tho. :x
No, they arn't.
Charm lasts 20 seconds, and a 3900$ item lasts 9/8/7/6/5 (i'll double check numbers later). BKB as it is, is very weak since later on since it only lasts 5 seconds, at the price tag of 3900 bucks - that's pretty bad in my books.
Charm lasts 20 seconds, and is a Buff. Castable on any target, Shrunken head is an item that grants the wearer magic immunity upon activation. It shouldn't be purgeable.
Might be changed. Keep your eyes open in the next patches.
