Reflect Ability clarification

Postby ATA_Marvin » Mar 21 2017, 2:20pm

We have adjusted Naga’s 3rd ability description to hopefully clear up what the ability does. When a monster has Reflect active, this means that they will not receive the amount of damage that the monster reflects back at the building.

For example: If a monster is given a 55% Reflect, that means that they will not take 55% of the damage and will instead reflect that damage back at the attacking building. They will still be damaged for 45% of the original damage.

This ability is entirely separate from other defence abilities so using it will not overwrite any active defence buffs or debuffs and vice-versa.

You didn't need to clarify I think, it's common sense, no?

It can get complicated... if I have 40% deflect and 50% shield, which one is applied first? Do I only get hit for 10%? Or am I shielded for 50% of what's not reflected back? Or am I only reflecting back 40% of what I get hit with a 50% shield?

If we debuff the lasers then does it reflect back less?

If the lasers shield is lower would reflect attack be higher?

Shield first

You get hit for 20%. 100*.5*.4

The building gets hit for 30%

I tested with g om shield
