  • shield block and dispersion interaction

    I always thought that dispersion would reflect damage taken and then block, but it seems like it blocks first then disperses?

    For example if you took 100 damage with rank 4 dispersion, and had a vangaurd which blocked 40 damage, you would disperse 22 damage, but take 100-22-40=38 damage yourself. However now it seems like it disperses after blocking, which means 100-40-(60*0.22)=13.2 damage dispersed.

    Can I get some clarification? Was it always this way in DotA (1)? There's nothing about dispersion in the intended fixes sticky either so I made this thread.

    In wc3 Dota, damage is blocked 1st, then spectre takes the dmg, then disperses it.

    Same in Dota 2, according to your description.
