Devouring a troop with barrier gives you its barrier


#1

What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened?
I had my Kerberos devour a Celestia with an active barrier. He gained the life and attack like normal, but also gained its barrier. At least, he gained the icon for it, and when I clicked on him it said he had a barrier active… he didn’t take any damage before the match ended, though, so I didn’t see whether it actually worked.
What are the steps to make it happen again?
Devour someone with a barrier, presumably.
Do you have any screenshots or video you want to share with us so we can see the problem? Attach them to your post!


Side note: that defense team of 4 Celestias is a cruel idea.

PS: I didn’t think of it before posting, but maybe this is intended behavior? You gain the target’s life and armor, after all, so I guess I could understand gaining its special magic armor too.

This is correct and supposed to happen… was written in a preview or patch notes somewhere…


#3

Indeed.


#4

Does it also passes along poison, burn and other effects for consistency?


#5

That’s a cool idea. At least Poison and Disease make sense. I could see an argument against Burn. It’s basically a well-done meal; your belly doesn’t catch on fire.


#6

No it doesn’t… I’m in two minds on that… Feels consistent, perhaps… But Devour is typically hard to trigger, not sure there should be such a downside when you do get it to work…


#7

Point taken. Would be super disappointing for Great Maw’s one devour to also bring poison.


#8

Why, you poison your meal, deserve what you get. :wink:
