This is a pretty straightforward question: When an invisible hero (or other unit) gets within the trigger radius of a Land Mine or Stasis Trap placed by Goblin Techies, will the mine be triggered?

  • @iamcreasy sounds like a good question. Feel free to post it as one. ;-) – Ajedi32 Sep 7 '14 at 13:55
  • Flying units will not trigger Land Mines Batrider and Familairs are an exception, although Familiars triggering them is a bug and it's reported it on the forums. Land Mines also won't damage Flying Courier. Source – Quazi Irfan Oct 12 '14 at 18:28

Yes Techie's Mine are triggered when an invisible enemy unit walks on them. You can for example use Lycan's wolves (lvl 4) to demine.

    I'd like to add that Stasis Traps aren't triggered by invisible units, but they will get stunned if they are in the AoE when it is triggered. Land mines are triggered, though. – Kenneth Sep 6 '14 at 4:55

Yes. Anything that walk on those mines will make them blow up. In dota (TFT version) in techies games I used to grab either neutral creeps or pick heroes that could summon units and send them to patrol places where techies usually put their mines.

Notes: Always check the secret shop from the side lanes with a creep before going in first. Otherwise techies will have a good time.
