    Spike Carapace not breaking Vendetta, I never figured exactly how or when this could be useful. I imagine you get a free stun on someone carrying a Radiance but not much else.

    That would be great... if only Spiked Carapace actually removed the dust on Nyx. But can you guess what?

    if you dusted or enemy have sentry, u can spike as countermeasure but kept the vendetta buff if your team counter initiate enemy.

    I can't comprehend why this has to be explained.

    @Leadblast imagine you are walking about as Nyx when you realize, in a very tiny frame of time, that the area/group of heroes you walked into have detection. Sentry, gem, they just dusted, whatever. A reflex carapace allows you to potentially avoid getting nuked down in that split-second and potentially follow up with a backstab on one of their heroes, doing significant damage.

    Is it something huge that changes the outcome of every game? Probably not, but it's a small buff that's there to allow players to take advantage of it if they're able.

    If they detect you walking about invisibly as Nyx, you activate Carapace, yeah you hope that's just enough to save your life, but I don't think the fact that you're still invisible if you don't break Vendetta makes much of a difference anyway. Mainly, if the enemy has a Radiance aura or Sand King's Sandstorm or something like that. I don't know if it works against Necro's aura or Undying's flesh golem auras but it would be quite useful if it did.

    Also, some heroes does use aoe ability to clear creeps and if your nyx able to predict that, it become better setup fot unwaring enemy, e.g firestorm pitlord, torrent, avalanche( you could intentionally walk into ava aoe), puck orb etc etc and then follow with vendeta stun combo
