Why do roots prevent muradin avatar?

Earlier today I was trying to play some Aram games and I got muradin, but found i couldnt use avatar when rooted. I don’t know why it works this way. Avatar isn’t a movement ability, so why should it be prevented from working when rooted?

that definitely doesn’t make sense. are you sure you weren’t silenced or something

What rooted you, cus I know at least one hero who silences at the same time (Junkrat) if he takes that talent and you don’t get the Silenced tooltip for some rason

I’m taking a guess here. You stepped on Junkrat’s Steel Trap with Sticky Wicket talented (Silence).

That shouldn’t happen unless there was some other effect in play. If possible I would suggest looking at the replay if you truly think it was a bug.

that’s my guess too. rooted + silenced from the trap makes sense

Or possibly Stukov with Virulent Reaction, if you didn’t notice you were in a puddle.

Yeah maybe was Junkrat.

It doesn’t. Can you check again?
