  • Mask of Madness bonus damage is still applied under BKB

    Is this intended or a bug? I was under the impression that if you activated BKB while using MoM or vice versa that you wouldn't receive the increased 30% damage, but after testing it appears as though you do.

    If the Extra damage that you receive from MoM is magical so it should be blocked but i think its relevant to the type of damage you take (Physical if you take physical damage and ...) but i'm not sure about this...

      Why wouldn't you receive extra damage from MoM or sprint etc. under magic immunity? It amplifies all damage at the end of the calc --> you take 100 raw physical damage with 0 armour and MoM on --> you take 130 damage.

      Things like soul catcher and orchid malevolence *should* be cancelled by BKB as pure and magical damage get blocked (however orchid is bugged I believe). Berserk/rampage whatever the base skill in WC3 is called is unpurgeable too, so doesn't get dispelled.

        The extra damage applied from MoM is physical and magical, so with bkb u will take only the extra physical damage.

        in dota 1, i am pretty sure u still take extra damage with MoM and bkb. I played some sven in dota 1 to know this, BUT, order of activating the items might be important. if u bkb first, than MoM, u will take extra damage, but is it the same the other way around? idk


        • #5
          MoM damage amplification is hardcoded, it's neither physical nor magical, it's just amplification and does NOT cause a secondary damage instance.

          And the MoM active buff cannot be purged by anything except death (or reincarnation), so you will ALWAYS take the +30% damage, there's no way to avoid it.

            wyn -ryder is right, DT and AT are set by attack's properties. hero attack? AT Hero, DT Physical. Magic attack - whatsoever. amplification will always be there, unless other berserk-based ability change values. in dota - mom, sprint and enrage
