  • [Abaddon] Curse of Avernus' speed buff is placed on attack hit, instead of start

    This mainly matters for ranged heroes, or against heroes with high attack speed

    Currently, the speed buff is only placed upon successfully hitting an enemy (OnAttackLanded). This means:

    1. As a ranged hero, you only get the buff on projectile hit
    2. When your attacks miss, you do not get the speed buff at all
    3. Your first attack against the cursed target never get the speed bonus, not even for melee attackers
    4. When you switch attack targets, your first hit against the new target will get the speed bonus.

    Buffs like this should be placed on attack begin (OnAttackStart), and not on attack hit (OnAttack or OnAttackLanded).

    The old Curse of Avernus did not have this issue.

    Please, just call me buny.

    Funnily, it was done correctly on Chen's Penitence, which grants attacking units attack speed vs the target as well. It places its bonus upon attack begin.
