Abilities/Interact

Interact is a type of ability that allows unit to be used by other players than the owner.

Interact usually works on auto-cast, although it can be used as manually-cast ability. Casting this ability on a unit gives control of the casting unit to the target's unit controller (i.e. an item shop will cast this ability to grant control to the heroes standing nearby).
