Taking blinks aside, are there any heroes skills that can pass through Earthshaker's *road block* from Fissure?

Please don't use tags for games that are not relevant to your question. – murgatroid99 Dec 5 '12 at 6:41
They are related. – MegaNairda Dec 5 '12 at 6:45
It doesn't matter. Your question appears to be about Dota 2 (from a quick Google search). Do not include a game tag if your question is not about that game (and only rarely, if ever, should you include other tags). – murgatroid99 Dec 5 '12 at 6:50
Both games shares the same game mechanics. Even HoN had the same Hero. – MegaNairda Dec 5 '12 at 6:52
As far as I can tell, even though the games are similar, they are not the same. Specifically, you seem to be asking for the set of hero skills that can pass through the road block created by Fissure, and the universe from which that set can be chosen depends on the game. The games are more similar than I realized, but I still think it would be better to ask about just one game. – murgatroid99 Dec 5 '12 at 7:00

Stated that heroes that has Blink Dagger or Force Staff can avoid a fissure block, I will not list, as requested, heroes with blink or teleport capabilities like, for example, Anti-Mage/Queen of Pain or Nature's Prophet/Wisp.

Heroes that can pass Fissure alone

  • Batrider using FireFly
  • Faceless Void using Time Walk
  • Mirana using Leap
  • Morphling using Waveform
  • Puck using Illusory Orb
  • Sandking using Burrow Strike
  • Spectre using Spectral Dagger
  • Storm Spirit using Ball Lightning

Heroes that can pass Fissure it there is an enemy (or ally in some case) on the other side

  • Chaos Knight using Reality Rift on an enemy on the other side
  • Huskar using Life Break on an enemy on the other side
  • Phatom Assassin using Phantom Strike on an enemy/ally on the other side
  • Riki using Blink Strike on an enemy on the other side
  • Spirit Breaker using Charge of Darkness on an enemy/ally in the direction
  • Vengeful Spirit using Nether Swap on an enemy on the other side
  • Clockwerk using Hookshot on an enemy/ally on the other side

Honorable mention

  • Tiny can Toss and ally on the other side if there is an enemy there

For sure I forgot someone, I will recheck this later on.

Timbersaw's timber chain, Pudge's hook, Sprit breaker's nether strike – GeoStrike Dec 31 '12 at 10:13
I believe that broodmother should be able to walk over a fissure, but I haven't tested it, and can't find a reference to it in the wiki. – Yann Jun 3 '15 at 9:25

OP's post states "Taking blinks aside". – Kotsu Dec 5 '12 at 15:17
@Kotsu True. The vast majority of these skills would be considered blinks or pseudo-blinks, however. It's simpler to just be thorough. – Decency Dec 5 '12 at 16:03
@Decency Have you really tried Morphling Waveform passing through the fissure road block? I'm not pretty sure but I do recall being unable to pass through it using waveform. – MegaNairda Dec 6 '12 at 6:21
@MegaNairda It would very much surprise me if you couldn't. The way I went about making the list was just thinking of what spells allow you to pass over cliffs, as I believe Fissure is treated in exactly the same way. I'm positive that Morphling can move over cliffs with Waveform. – Decency Dec 6 '12 at 13:53
Nature prophets teleport is actually a telport which nothing to deal with blocking paths – GeoStrike Dec 31 '12 at 10:09
