  • Chaos Meteor burn damage is incorrect?

    Level 25 Invoker (no Agh) tosses Meteor onto level 25 Centaur
    Expected behaviour: every main damage instance applies burn instance which lasts 3 seconds, providing 6 mini-instances. All damage is buffed by Int.
    Reality is very different:

    Take a look closer

    It took 3 instacnes of main damage to actually BURN the target once. Then it again burned for ONCE, and only after 5 instances he got 2x burn damage. In fact burn damage is never correct. Description and old Dota says "burn applied along with main damage, its' completely independent instances, every of which deals 1/5 of main damage per 0.5, starting with 0.5 seconds intervals and causing 6 instances total". Here we can see some nonsense iteraction where I cannot get any formula. It's obviously wrong OR the mechanic been changed without notifying.

    Here we can see burn debuff deals damage once per second, which is basically wrong.

    The burn damage happens once per second, so each debuff applies 3 damage instances. The wiki is wrong there (might have confused it, since it visually looks like the ticks happen in 0.5 seconds, but that's only because you get a new debuff every 0.5 seconds).

    So the first debuff damage instance should happen at the same time as the 3rd meteor damage. It seems to work correctly.

    E: I fixed it on the wiki.
    Please, just call me buny.

      actually it took 1.5 second between debuff being placed and started to damage

        No, it didn't. In your image, the first meteor damage was at 36.76. The first burn damage tick was at 37.79 (1.03 seconds later).
