    Ancient Apparition's Ice Vortex tooltip not worded correctly

    "Creates a vortex of icy energy that slows movement speed and lowers magic resistance of enemies in its range. Lasts 12 seconds. "

    It doesn't actually lower magic resistance but rather it increases magic damage taken similar to the debuff of Veil of Discord. Not a big deal, but it could be confusing to new players who check to see that their Magic Resistance is still 25% and unmodified. Just edit the tooltip to say it increases magic damage taken.

    Instead of:

    Magic Resistance Reduction: 10%/15%/20%/25%

    Change it to:

    Additional Magic Damage Taken: 10%/15%/20%/25%

    its not that simple i guess

    let me have a try:

    100 dmg nuke -25%(naturals) = 75

    75 * 125% = i dont think this is 100 at all
    --------------------
    even 100 dmg nuke +25%(vortex) = 125

    125 * 75% = hm again not 100

    Edit due to public demand: Very nice calculation equal, we love you!

    You're right with that example. I also did some testing with Dagon 5.

    Base 800 Damage.

    Without Ice Vortex: 600 Damage
    With Ice Vortex: 750 Damage

    The calculation shows that 25% increased damage does not equal subtracting 25% Magic Resistance (where the target would take 800 damage given 0 Magic Resistance)

    Given your example of a 100 damage nuke (I tested using Lvl 4 Queen of Pain Shadow Strike), the target takes 93 damage after factoring in the standard 25% Magic Resistance and Ice Vortex on the target. So again, 25% increased damage does not equal a reduction in 25% Magic Resistance (where the target would take 100 damage given 0 Resistance).

    This proves that Ice Vortex is not simply decreasing Magic Resistance, it is using a Percent Damage Increase formula.
