Early advantage changed?

Postby Rosqo » August 11th, 2017, 2:46 pm

Hi,

Did early advantage get a stealth nerf at some point? No longer hits through dodge etc

Pretty sure, it never hit through dodge...

Nothing in tooltip either --> https://www.warcraftpets.com/abilities/ ... advantage/

I've used it since early WoD (against Cymre) and it haven't had changed since then..

The second hit used to count as a dot tick and hit through blocks/dodge. I'm gonna check my old videos to see if I recorded it.

Edit: so there was a change to the ability 30/06/2017. I've also found a couple old posts that mention the second hit going through dodge. Guess it got stealth nerfed after all.

I've also seen a report about the second tick being a technical DoT -- that is, unavoidable and dealing a halved damage to aquatic targets.
As the first part seems to have been changed, I decided to fight an aquatic creature -- the damage dealt is finally normal!

The condition check, however, still isn't fixed. 809 HP vs 859 HP still ended in only one tick (I know why). :evil:

<me> Hm. Peanut and Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm are critters, but Meadowstomper Calf is a beast.
<Vakeetah> That's because the Draenor stuff is SAVAGE

It makes sense to change it to not be a dot it's just a bit annoying it's not documented anywhere.

Bit of a shame they decided to 'fix' this instead of other parts of pet battles too.

Early Advantage only procs extra damage if the pet using it has lower health AFTER base hit
Example
base dmg for early advantage: 300
if you have 599 hp, and opponent has 900 hp
then this will proc and bring the opponent down to 300hp

BUT if you have 600 hp and opponent has 900, this will not proc
thus bringing down the opponent to 600hp

I'm pretty sure, it doubles the damage if you have less health, not strikes a second time..

Tooltip also says "deals double damage", not "hits an additional time"..

It hits twice. Trust me.
I use it EVERY single day against Ashlei in SMV.
