  • False information about hero/es

    I don't know if this subject has been discussed or even noticed, but as I looked on a particular hero , Visage, I noticed that in the in-game "learn" section it says that Visages base damage varies from 24-34, and from which we all know adds up to 2 and then should be divided in to an avarage base damage per hit.

    Now, in game it tells me that the avarage base damage is 53 ( no items) which is allready divided by the numbers 48-58. These numbers are shown while hovering the mouse pointer on the sword(symbol for attack damage)
    TLDR, In game says Visages hits between 48-58 with an avarage dmg of 53, But Learn section says "24-34".

    What do they mean with 24-34? is this a mistake or am I missing out on something?

    That base damage is the absolute raw base damage the hero has, before they get any extra damage from their primary attribute added onto it. The 24-34 averages out to 29, and Visage has a base intelligence of 24. Add 29 to 24, and you get the 53 that shows up in game. Valve should probably fix that, but it's not technically false information.

    Also, lore forum?

      Indeed, base damage is the damage a hero would do if he/she/it didn't have any stats - however, since every hero starts out with base stats (in this case 22 intelligence for Visage), the initial damage at level 1 will always be higher than the base stat. You can check other heroes, same case.
      Since the question has been answered, and since this was posted in the wrong section - Tooltip issues would've been a better fit - I'll be closing this.
      To keep these forums clean and friendly, please read and follow the forum rules.
      Before making a new thread, be sure to have used search, as well as checking the stickies of the appropriate section.
