Sorry, what damage bonus?

LittleLauren September 21 2008 9:27 PM EDT

Err...Well I figured that there was a damage bonus since my real minion's damage pretty much doubled when it got to the melee rounds. (Also in the last round of ranged...but maybe that is from the Clearsight?)

you don't get a bonus in melee to damage. you do get a penalty to damage in ranged.

LittleLauren September 21 2008 9:57 PM EDT

Well why doesn't the penalty to ranged get removed then? It's the same question either way.

Damage is pretty random, it probably just seems like the penalties being removed check out a few more fights. Also the penalty comes down each round, so if you look at the first one and the last one they are definitely different.
