Blade mail reflects as pure damage, so how can it reflect pure damage itself?

Maybe even make it so that blade mail reflects the pure damage you output towards yourself when you have it activated...

Why are strength heroes countering intel heroes with their own class item?

What is the strength item that an intel hero must get to counter in theory?

F blade mail, it's ruined this game from the beginning

At least make it so that blade mail can't return damage from so many yards away

so how about 50% damage returned for magic damage?

Or even 100% damage healed to self when reflecting pure damage

50% reflected for magic

50% damage healed to self on magic damage?

Ummm, guys, Blade Mail reflects pure damage like it reflects any other damage type.

Quoted:

Returns the same damage type as received.
The return damage which the enemy takes is affected by damage manipulation normally, since it is regular magical/physical/pure damage still. This includes damage block, meaning that return damage can be blocked by damage block.

It just doesn't reflect OTHER blademail damage. It has the no-reflection flag so there's no infinite loop if there's 2 blademails.

I see no reason whatsoever why blademail shouldn't work against Timbersaw, OD, Enchantress or whatever. Blademail should reflect Dagon but not Laser? You realize how silly that sounds?

Blademail is here as a counter-power against OSfrog-tier heroes that can kill people from full HP in less than 2 seconds. The item may be anti-fun but it's a form of self-balancing of the game.

Exactly, all agreed! So it doesn't "l reflects as pure damage", as our Frog friend said, which seemed to be him lost in Dota time :)

So when I make an idi0tic rant everyone posts. But when I do talk sense for an actual thing I want to implement I get a binary y/n reply.

Ok you deserve kyfoid mode.
Go On, Feed Me.

Nuuuuu be fair, almost always the same loyal people comment, with more or less detail, and sometimes there's just not enough time...

Also it was funny to see our developer of the game forget about something from the game for a second there, that is all :)

It is called testing your patience, my frozen seƱora.

I think trolling suits the forum and blademails can be whoever they want to be
