  • [Outworld Devourer] Interaction with blade mail and BKB

    Since OD's Arcane Orb doesn't pierce BKB, I was wondering why, if I'm Outworld Devourer attacking an enemy who activates blade mail, my Arcane Orb damage still gets reflected to me if I activate BKB myself. Is it meant to be so?

    Blade Mail pierces spell immunity. So the damage it deals will hit you. The source of the original damage does not matter, since Blade Mail doesn't reflect the damage back. What it does is: Registers that you take damage, deal damage to the source of the damage you just took. The damage value is based on how much damage you took (before reduction), and the damage type is set equal to the source's type.
    Please, just call me buny.
