Untargetable

Untargetability refers to units in a state where they are no longer valid targets for point-blank area of effects (e.g. Decimate Decimate and Sunfire Cape item Sunfire Cape), unit-targeted (e.g. Disintegrate Disintegrate), auto-targeted (e.g. Requiem Requiem), direction-targeted (e.g. Mystic Shot Mystic Shot) and ground-targeted (e.g. Pillar of Flame Pillar of Flame) effects, including attacks, abilities, items and summoner spells. Becoming untargetable is not a form of invulnerability, and units will still suffer the effects of active applied damage over times (e.g. Ignite Ignite), delayed detonations (e.g. Time Bomb Time Bomb, Hemoplague Hemoplague and Umbral Trespass 2 Umbral Trespass) and tethers (e.g. Drain Drain).

To date, Realm Warp Realm Warp and Wish Wish are the only effects that can target an untargetable unit.

The act of becoming untargetable will also interrupt any effects that have already acquired the unit as a target (e.g. an oncoming basic attack will fizzle) as well as causing AI-controlled units (e.g. turrets and minions) to acquire a new target (also known as "dropping aggro").

The telegraph from Karthus OriginalSquare Karthus' Requiem Requiem will be placed on untargetable enemies, although the damage itself is classified as auto-targeted effect that occurs at the end of the channel time.

All tip data templates use the same parameter.

Retrieval of data items

{{data Untargetable|pst2|interrupts}}, using parameter selection template Template:Pst2, gives the parameter interrupts, etc.

For retrieval of more data items it is more efficient to prepare a template for that, to be used as follows:

{{data Untargetable|template name|..|..|..|..}}

so that this data template needs to be called only once.[1] The default template is Template:Tip data, producing this page.

The four parameters are optional, they are passed on to the prepared template as parameters 2-5.

A parameter being undefined or empty typically means the same, see below. {{data ..|pst2|..}} gives the empty string and the text "{{{..}}}", respectively. Therefore, an application checking the parameter has to check both. Checking whether a result is equal to e.g. the text "{{{popinc}}}" cannot be done directly with #ifeq in a template which itself has also a parameter with that name, because if that is defined, there would be a comparison with the value instead of the text itself. Instead, it can be checked whether the first character of the result is "{", e.g.: {{#ifeq:{{padleft:|1|{{data {{{continent}}}|pst2|popinc}}}}|{|..|..}}. Until here the documentation is automatically generated by Template:Tip data.
