The Foreseer’s Contract Patch Notes


Added a new Intelligence hero, Oracle!


Enabled Broodmother in Captain’s Mode
Enabled Phoenix in Captain’s Mode
Fixed Midnight Pulse rounding down
Fixed Illusions not showing the same Black King Bar charges as the primary hero
Fixed recursive damage loop with stolen Fatal Bonds and Sticky Napalm
Fixed Spirit Bear being unable to pick up Bounty Runes
Fixed Pounce not being removed by Blade Fury
Fixed some minor incorrect purgeability behaviors with Invulnerable states on Bane, Ember Spirit, Faceless Void, Morphling and Storm Spirit
Fixed Runes not spawning at the right time in save/load games
Fixed save/load not remembering Black King Bar charges
Fixed some cases where reconnecting to a match would fail until the client was restarted
Town Portal Scroll effect coloring intensified to show more of the casting player’s color


Improved detection of Poor Network Conditions. Now it can trigger if multiple players experience degraded connection quality, even if they do not totally drop connection. When poor network connections are detected, the match is immediately safe to leave, match results are not recorded, and prediction items are not consumed
Fixed a bug which caused end-of-match rewards, such as All Hero Challenge progress, to not be granted if players left very quickly after a match ended at the same time that match signout was delayed


Added Phantom Assassin Bot
Added Oracle Bot
Bots can no longer use buyback if affected by an Aghanim’s Scepter-upgraded Reaper’s Scythe


Added new sounds for each rune type
Added a new sound for when Linken’s Sphere is cast on an ally
Added a new sound for Helm of the Dominator
Added a new sound for Spirit Breaker’s Empowering Haste activation
Added a sound layer to Desolator attacks
Updated the sound for Roshan’s Slam
Updated the sound for Windranger’s Windrun
Basic attacks that miss or are evaded no longer play sounds


New healthbars added for Ancient buildings, Roshan, and hero creeps (Spirit Bear, Familiars etc)
The item context menu now allows “Move to Stash” while dead
Fixed alt-pinging the enemy’s item sometimes getting truncated
Linken Sphere now shows up as a buff icon when cast on allies
Fixed the Reaper’s Scythe indicator not appearing in the top bar when buyback is unavailable to a killed hero
Allow tab cycling (without unit selection) between owned units to cycle to illusions
If Unified Unit Orders is unchecked, holding down control while issuing orders will only issue the order to the selected unit group and not the entire selection
Abilities and Items that create multiple illusions at one time now tag the illusions so their control group state is maintained across the illusion dying and being resummoned. This state is saved across game sessions
Damage taken by illusions is now expressed in ability and item descriptions as the total amount of damage that the illusion will take. Previously, it was shown as an amount of bonus damage to then be added to the base 100%
Several tooltip adjustments and fixes
