- AI will sometimes store some items in memory (called "buffered items"), to make room for any added new items. After the routines, most of the times the items are returned.
- Up till now, these items are the one creating error messages for Huskar, Axe, and Nevermore, as these heroes have buggy build which doesn't allow the buffered items to return (full inventory).
- The current error report will show which items are on error: CORE or BUFFER. BUFFER error is and will be handled by selling the items. However, BUFFER error MUST not disturb AI normal build.
