    Null Stone - Spell Block List

    The thread to end all threads on the subject quite simply, this is a list of all the spells that are Blocked by Nullstone, all spells were directed to the Hero with Nullstone Equipped.

    Extra Info:

    The exceptions are if the skill has projectile="(projectile)" in their parameters because Null Stone checks <onimpact at cast action time and at the time the projectile impacts, ie Andromeda's Comet.

    target_entity and target_dual are the only spells blocked by Null Stone.

    Assuming my practice mode isn't bugged, Soul Reaper's Judgment will trigger Nullstone without blocking the damage, same as Armadon's spines.

    Also, Sand Wraith's ult is blocked by Nullstone (images will spawn next to your allies, but not you).

    Judgement both Heal/Damage isnt triggering Nullstone for me.

    Ill update the list to include Nullstone blocking Mirage.

And Thunderbringer's Ult. And every other single target ability in the game, be it magic or not. Even Predator's Leap is blocked by it.

    Well nullstone wasnt a popular item and needed buffs, eventually S2 changed it to work agaisnt all single target spells, so i formed a list to see what works & what doesnt and tbh with knowing that i can now say that Nullstone is a great item agaisnt certain heroes like Swift/Aracha/Plague Rider where before i would of never known it blocks their ultimates entirely.

    tl;dr: Any spell which involves clicking directly on an enemy hero.

    Tested this, it only completely blocks it if the first bounce is directed at the Nullstone if not then it never activates and it will bounce on and off you like normal.

    Soul Reapers judgement is interesting i must say, check this out.

    Sometimes it doesnt activate it and sometimes it does, it must have some really messed up code :P

    It seems to cause Nullstone to work every 2nd Judgement

    This is what happened to me the first time I tried it, but IIRC, it would only trigger every other time when I used Refresh in practice mode, whereas if I waited for the Nullstone cooldown, it would trigger it each time.

    However, when I re-tested it before posting here originally, it would trigger every single time, no matter what I did. Strange behaviour, indeed.

    I completely bugged out my practice mode just now testing these. I'm not sure how it happened but using succubus' abilities on legionnaire carrying a stone glitched everything out. The abilities would not go on cool down, and attempting to re-cast them would make the level up animation and sound play on succubus, and weird random spell effects play on legionnaire. For instance weird things would spin around above his head, or defiler's death wave would shoot out of him and hit nothing. She was neutral if that's related.

    Ok Tyrando Next question is Swift blades ult if he bounce to u does it get dispelled and if he targets you directly does he stop or do u not take the damage for that particular swing

    it works like Plague Riders ultimate, if he directs it at you it stops the ultimately completely, if he doesnt direct it at you the ultimate will act as if Nullstone doesnt exist.

    Edit: updated with Witch Hunter.
