Um...Odd VA find. (in General)

QBOddBird February 3 2006 11:51 PM EST

Grey spiked Mages hurt me [556]
Grey draws strength from his weapon! [-32]
Mages hurt me's Guardian Angel smote Grey (177)
Grey burns from the flames surrounding Mages hurt me (98)

Anyone got any idea why VA would *REMOVE* someone's HP? Seems kind of weird to me.

Dispel Magic. I never thought it made any sense either.

I've heard this mentioned before. I'm not sure of the specifics, but at very low levels VA will in fact hurt you. So either train it up a bit or try another ED.

Meh, it isn't me that is training it, and he doesn't have DM.

I was just wondering as to why it would hurt them...

DM used to cause VA to harmt he user, but I'm sure it was changed to stop at zero, and not go into negatives. :/

"Q: Why does my VA give me negative HP?

A: You have a low VA + penalties to magic."

Pretty obvious, and I also think this is stated in the wiki :)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 4 2006 1:08 PM EST

so is there any other instance? IE, you did almost no damage with a huge VA and the randomization went low?

QBOddBird February 4 2006 8:00 PM EST

Don't know, I was just curious because I noticed it happening in the battle.

Let me repeat again: this isn't ME, it is someone I fought. I was simply wondering about the effect it was having.

It is just that a base Vampiric Aura, with magic penalties, goes below the 0 HP drain, and drains negative HP (or in other words, takes away HP from your minion)
