    [Confirmed] Abaddon's Borrowed Time activates too early

    In dota1, aba's ult autoactivation works for the first damage instance dealt to abaddon when he's under the HP threshold for its activation. Example: we're at 450 hp, an attack brings us to 350. Ulti doesn't autoactivate! Next attack will activate the ult since 350<400


    Repro steps:

    Pick abaddon, deal damage to him.

    Result:

    Ulti activates whenever something brings him to under 400 hp

    Expected result:

    Ulti activates on the first damage instance on <400 hp abaddon

    What does this bring to us:

    Not being able to kill a >400 hp abaddon in 2 damage instances (lina/lion stun+ult, techies land mines, a crit, something else) if he's not fast enough on fingers.

    Try testing this again. Unless it got changed back extremely recently I really doubt you're correct.

    Tested, currently any damage that brings Abaddon under 400 hp currently activates the ulti.

    Wyn-Ryder, I just tested it before posting. Everything is as described in post 1. What part of it do you doubt?

    Was the same on test and wasn't fixed, thought it had been ported when the test forum closed, maybe not. Anyway yeah it makes a difference, in dota1 it tends to activate later because of the way it works, which gives you more possibilities to kill Abaddon without activating ult.

    I was sure I tested this and found the opposite... Maybe they only fixed it healing the instance that triggered it...
