HP/AS problem -- what am I missing here? (in General)


QBsutekh137 July 22 2008 3:35 PM EDT

Hey all,

I noticed a strange issue with hit points today on my team.

First off, I fought a tiny character in the 25K score range, a character with one minion and no enchantments. My final AS casts like this:

Hubbell Man cast Ablative Shield on all friendly Minions (905674)

I win in 1 round, obviously, with no one losing any HP. Post-battle stats look like this for the "Hit points:" line:

Hit Points 3,469,607 680,981 680,981 2,472,095 905,694

That would be in the order: Joe, Dave, Mary Frances Boyd, Hubbell Man's familiar, Hubbell Man

Hubbell Man gets the right HP...the AS cast plus native 20. Joe has 2,788,646 native hit points, so SHOULD have 3,694,320 HP. He is 224,713 HP low, as are Dave and Mary Frances Boyd. I don't feel like trying to do the math on the familiar right now, but the familiar's level is 6031823 plus the naming for anyone who wants to work that out.

Can someone tell me how two minions on my team can end up with only 680,981 hit points each when AS is laying on over 900,000 HP?

What am I missing (other than possibly 225K hit points times 3?)

its your AOF :) problem solved

I don't follow you...? Can you elaborate?

QBsutekh137 July 22 2008 3:40 PM EDT

So HM gets more HP because he is focused, but then why does the enchantment area have the inflated amount? He isn't actually casting that much, he just ends up inflated...

the initial cast numbers show the "boosted" numbers by your AMF... however your AS only casts "boosted" against the minion with the AOF... causing a difference in numbers through out the rest of the group

QBsutekh137 July 22 2008 3:43 PM EDT

Indeed, the AoF is the key...cast numbers and numbers for everyone look right when I remove it.

So, it would appear for the last cast number, since it is cumulative, Jonathan just takes the total HP on the minion casting minus his/her native HP. If your last AS caster is wearing an AoF, that number is incorrect, then. Or rather, it is ONLY correct for that minion because of the AoF boost.

Thanks for such a quick catch, lostling. Very nice!

I think it actually displays whatever value affects the last minion cast upon, as it goes in order. I.e. you could change your minion order, while keeping the AoF on, and the display would be your actual AS level.

QBsutekh137 July 22 2008 4:22 PM EDT

You are absolutely correct! I moved HM to the left and then things match up, so it is just a tiny, rare display "feature".

Thanks for the help, guys!
