  • [Confirmed] The swarm applies -armor before its attack deals damage.

    Dota 1: - armor is applied after unit has been damaged.

    Against level 1 Wisp (a hero with absolute 0 armor) first attack deals 30 damage

    Dota 2:

    Against level 1 Wisp first attack will deal 31 damage. This proves that The Swarm applies -armor before attack deals damage. If you have other more reliable way to prove or refute please post it here.

    Just to be precise: Triggers that trigger on EVENT_UNIT_DAMAGED actually do run before the actual damage occurs. However, by the time the triggers run, the damage that is to be dealt is "locked in" and cannot be changed by retroactively subtracting armor. Other abilities that deal damage or something based on EVENT_UNIT_DAMAGED will run before the original damage source occurs; minus armor is just weird like that (see: Meld and Desolator oh my).
