I pulled Merlin during the most recent event and have leveled him close to the point that I will be able to use him. But first I want to make sure I understand Mindless Attack. Is this correct?
When a hero who has been hit by Merlin’s Mindless Attack fires their special within the timing window, it will hit one of the heroes teammates or themself.
The odds it hits any one hero are 1/n where n is the number of living heroes on that side (that is, the hero to hit is chosen randomly).
Mindless Attack takes the place of whatever the affected heroes special is. So, if I hit Azlar and then he goes off, I should NOT expect him to wipe out his entire side with his special. Similarly, a healer will NOT cast heal, instead actually making an attack.
When a hero fires their special, that does NOT get rid of the Mindless Attack (it’s an ailment). If their mana gets filled again within the applicable number of turns, they would attack their team again.
Lastly, I was unable to find any information on this: what attack stats are used for Mindless Attack? Merlin’s, or the afflicted hero (the answer to that could change who it gets cast on, if two enemy heroes were both about to fire)?
