Revive talent concern – Fighters Shouldn't Be Allowed to Revive After Dying from DOT (Damage Over Time)

20190629_130729
I don’t quite know if this has been brought up before or if this ought to be categorised as a bug, but in my thought process, the revive talent isn’t working properly or at least according to its description. The only issue I have with it is when heroes that have DOT fire their SSs, it triggers the ability to revive. In example, we have Proteus who fires its SS and let’s say a Boldtusk who’s about to die from the DOT effect of his ‘poison.’ But, instead of dying from it, he doesn’t, since he gets revived instead.

According to the description of the talent, it’s the ability to incur 1 HP AFTER A FATAL ATTACK. I don’t see any part of that that says DOT is considered a fatal attack. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t DOT incremental damage and is considered an effect instead of a direct attack?

I’m sure I’m not the only player out there who’s been frustrated a lot by a BT that has revived multiple times and recovered HP for all its allies that were to die supposedly the next round, either due to DOT or your team’s damage. Even worse are cases where a Colen lives after supposedly dying from DOT and turns the table against you instead by obliterating your whole team with his nuclear SS.

I moved this to #ideas-feature-requests and added to your title, since this is effectively a request for the game to work differently than it does. :slight_smile:


I think it’s a fair criticism that the tooltip isn’t very clear — but that’s a common problem with most of the tooltips in this game; many of them could use clarification or outright rewriting.

It would seem that in this case it would have been simpler for them to say something like “after the hero dies.”

Thank you for adding supplemental notes and thought to the post, @zephyr1! It’s good to know I’m not outright lost in my thought process and logic when it comes to this particular talent. And yes, it would make very good sense if they simply say ‘after the hero dies’ in the talent’s description.

DOT is the result of an attack and it can be fatal, so… where’s the “isn’t working properly or at least according to its description” part? It’s more of a technicality, than a real issue… We all hate it when BT revives, heals and boosts his team attack, but we also hate when Rigard or Viv resist Proteu’s mana block (that’s the part I hate most) or Scarlet ignores Magni’s deadly strike… it’s all part of the game

You said it yourself. It is the RESULT of an attack. It’s NOT THE ATTACK or a fatal attack itself.
