Glitch with Riven and Darius: when Darius pulls Riven, the knockup from 3rd hit of Broken Wings does not apply, and the stun from Ki Burst does not apply at any point during, before, or after the move.
It does not cancel or apply after the pull in the case of the stun, and the knockup is NEVER applied if he is in the animation for pulling. You do not even have to be the one being pulled in order for him to get this immunity, as I tried to use Broken Wings to save someone who was being pulled from being ulted, but he was never knocked up as I hit him during the pull.
1. Pick Riven and Darius
2. Press Q>Q> and then
3. Initiate a pull with Darius as soon as Riven lifts off of the ground for the third Q, but before she hits the ground. You do not have to pull her at range, you can pull her if she is right next to you.
4. Notice that Darius was not or is not consistently knocked up.
Items needed: None. Tenacity does not affect this glitch it seems, unless the new masteries have made it more common somehow (last mastery in def tree?). We replicated this glitch at level 1, 2, 3, and 6 with only AD items like Longsword, boots, or Doran's Blade on either champion.
This happens more frequently when using 3rd Q in order to anticipate being pulled so that it lands after Darius pulls you (you 'extend the range' by allowing him to pull you while you are in the air, so that he is knocked up right when you reach him). I used to do this quite frequently, but it doesn't seem to be working anymore, so the lane is now way more heavily in favor of Darius. Note that this glitch STILL occurs even if you are hitting him at point-blank range with Q though, and he pulls you. This acts like a Clarity or something. It's really annoying.
This same glitch is encountered with Riven W, but is much harder to pull off due to the timing of the W. Nevertheless, it is easy to test if you stand at max range for the W and have Darius pull from non-max range. He is NEVER stunned at any point during, before, or after his animation.
