  • Veil of Discord - bug or not?

    It says in the tooltip that veil of discord increases spell damage by 25%. However, as far as know, in dota 1 recall veil of discord reduces magic resistance by 25%.
    "Applies a debuff on all enemy units in a 500 AoE, causing them to have reduced magic resistance for a duration."

    If it increases spell damage:
    Avalanche does 300 pre-reduction damage * 1.25 multiplier = 375 damage which would then be reduced *.75 due to the 25% magic resistance and result in 281.25 damage.

    If it decreases magic resistance:
    Avalanche does 300 pre-reduction damage * 1 due to no magic resistance which would result in 300 damage.

    I haven't tested it but I would like to know if veil of discord suppose to increase spell damage or decrease magic resistance?

    The Dota 1 tooltip is actually the mis-leading one.

    Veil of discord applies negative magic resistance in a similar fashion to positive magic resistances, which means it stacks multiplicatively.

    It is easier to think of it as increasing spell damage by 25%, 281.25 damage is correct for a spell that deals 300 unreduced damage.
