    Stupid KBL entries... "Tidebringer is blocked by Krakenshell"
    Anyway, it works for every cleave against every damage block. Logically, I had searched for "cleave" on the Known Bugs List.

    Mods shall do whatever is necessary.

    I wasn't aware it was all cleaves though (and I even stated back then that it wasn't, oops!) anyway probably merge.

    Damage Block working against cleaved damage (shouldn't)

    Damage block blocks damage from cleaved damage.
    According to DotA, it shouldn't. Cleave shall not be reduced.

    > A Sven with Cleave
    > An enemy Wisp and an enemy Tide with Kraken Shell
    > Attack Wisp with Sven

    >> The damage Tide receives gets reduced with Kraken Shell (shouldn't)

    Sorry, blocks the tidebringer cleave (not sven cleave)

    EDIT: Disregard, it is incorrect. All cleaves are blocked by damage block.

    works as in "blocks cleave" or as in "works correctly"?

    I noticed tidebringer (Kunkka's passive) was triggering the visual from kraken shell, while cleave does not.

    Repro steps:

    1) Pick kunkka and level tidebringer
    2) -createhero tidehunter enemy I did this 5 times, one target to hit and 4 levels of kraken shell
    3) position them in a way where you hit them all
    4) open the combat log and check


    Kraken shell reduces the damage taken (seen in combat log, and on tidebringer bringing up the "damage blocked" visual on tide)

    Expected Results:

    Cleaves are not blocked by damage block

    Edit: So I did test tidebringer in DotA 1, absolutely no block, that is all tidehunters have exactly the same HP no matter what level of kraken shell. Should probably get moved to gameplay bugs

    EDIT: all cleaves are blocked (I have editted this post to reflect this change)
