  • Spells the deal Universal damage should be labeled correctly

    Right now, spells that deal universal damage are labeled as magical damage. While these two damage types are very similar, they are not the same. Please fix this.

    this might be intentional since universal damage, like piercing damage, isn't actually in the engine per se, but is coded as special exceptions. I'd like to know more.

      This could be accomplished easily by simply changing the labels on the five spells this applies to:

      Echo Slam
      Midnight Pulse
      March of the Machines
      Flaming Fists (Golem)

      "Universal damage is very similar to magical damage. It is reduced by magic resistance and deals 1.4x damage to ethereal units, but unlike magical damage, it goes through magic immunity. "
