Damage

From Hearthstone Wiki
(Redirected from Deal damage)
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Damage in Hearthstone is a particular infliction of harm upon heroes or minions, measured by a number which is deducted from their Armor (if they have any) or Health. If a character's Health is reduced to zero (or below), it will be killed. Note that other types of harm that can be inflicted to characters (such as destroy effects, Freeze effects and  Equality) are not considered damage for game purposes and, although most damage is dealt through combat, dealing damage is not considered an "attack" for game purposes.

Damage may be dealt through combat or by various types of damaging effects, which are effects that deal damage to characters. These may be spells, Hero Powers or abilities such as Battlecries, Deathrattles or triggered effects. Some damaging effects are targetable, while others select targets automatically or at random. Damaging effects can affect a single character (such as  Fireball), affect multiple characters (such as  Explosive Shot) or have an area of effect (such as  Flamestrike).

Damage can activate a number of triggered effects, both from receiving it (such as  Acolyte of Pain) and from dealing it (such as  Water Elemental). However, damage negated by Divine Shield or Immune effects is not considered to have been successfully dealt, and thus will not trigger any on-damage triggered effects.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Damaged[edit | edit source]

Main article: Damaged

Any character whose current Health is below its maximum Health is considered damaged, and their current Health will be displayed in red. Some effects (such as Enrage and  Battle Rage) require or synergize with damaged characters, while others (such as  Backstab) require undamaged characters. Restoring a character to its maximum Health will remove its damaged status, and thus remove any Enrage effects.

For additional details about the damaged status and a list of related cards, see Damaged.

Damage Events

Damaging effects and combat damage work by creating and resolving Damage Events:

  • Damaging effects that affect a single target create one Damage Event, and then immediately resolve it.
  • Usually, damaging effects with an area of effect (i.e., effects that deal damage to all characters of a certain type) first create all Damage Events (one for each affected character, in play order), and then resolve all Damage Events (queuing and resolving triggers) in play order. Exceptions are:
    •  Swipe creates Damage Events first for the target character and then for all other enemy characters in reverse play order; Damage Events are then resolved in the same order.
    •  Lightning Storm,  Elemental Destruction and  Lightbomb, although still figuring out the set of minions they will damage before beginning to damage anything, resolve each Damage Event as soon as it is created in play order.
Example:  Frothing Berserker will activate as older minions are damaged by  Lightbomb and may grow large enough in Attack to subsequently get killed by Lightbomb.
  • Some damaging effects that affect "multiple targets" ( Bouncing Blade,  Greater Arcane Missiles,  Cobra Shot and all the effects that "deal a certain amount of damage randomly split among all characters with a given characteristic") shoot a number of individual "missiles" each with a random target: each missile creates a Damage Event which is immediately resolved, before choosing at random the target for the next missile.
    • Spells that deal a certain amount of damage randomly split among all characters with a given characteristic ( Arcane Missiles,  Spreading Madness,  Avenging Wrath,  Volcano and  Timepiece of Horror) interact with Spell Damage and  Prophet Velen in the following way: in order to determine the total damage of the spell, take its base damage, add its controller's Spell Damage bonus (if any) and then, if its controller also controlled an unsilenced  Prophet Velen since the last Aura Update (Other) Step, double the total damage (multiple Prophet Velens stack); the spell will then shoot that number of missiles, each one still having a proposed damage of 1 regardless of its controller's Spell Damage and Prophet Velens.
  • All other damaging effects that affect "multiple targets" first create all Damage Events in a given order, then resolve all Damage Events in the same order:
  • When combat damage is dealt, first the two Damage Events are created in the order attack-counterattack, and then they are resolved in the same order.

Spells and effects with two steps (such as  Mortal Coil and  Slam) resolve all Damage Events before querying the target's condition or moving to their next step:

  •  Holy Nova creates and resolves all Damage Events, then creates and resolves all Healing Events (even if the Healing Events are turned into Damage Events by  Auchenai Soulpriest or  Embrace the Shadow);
  •  Blizzard creates and resolves all Damage Events, then freezes all enemy minions (even undamaged ones);
  •  Cone of Cold creates and resolves all Damage Events, then freezes the affected minions (even if the damage was reduced to 0 by Divine Shield);
  •  Imp-losion deals damage then queries how much damage was dealt: for example, Divine Shield sets the damage to 0, while  Commanding Shout does not modify how much damage was considered to be dealt.


Creating a Damage Event

Each Damage Event has its own source (usually, the minion or the damaging effect that creates it; the only exception is  Betrayal, whose Damage Events have the targeted minion as their source), its own target and a proposed damage:

Proposed damage can then be increased by the following bonuses:

Then, if the target is Immune or the Damage Event's proposed damage is 0, the Damage Event is prevented and has no other consequences. Otherwise, continue with the following steps, in order.

  • If the target has Divine Shield, the Divine Shield is removed and the Damage Event's proposed damage is reduced to 0.
  • If the target of the Damage Event is a hero, predamage triggers queue and resolve:  Animated Armor has an early priority and always triggers first, and then  Bolf Ramshield and  Ice Block trigger in order of play. Notice that, whenever a predamage trigger queries how much is the proposed damage of a Damage Event that targets a hero, any  Cursed Blade equipped by that hero will double the reported damage.
  •  Animated Armor triggers if the Damage Event has a proposed damage greater than 1, reducing the proposed damage of the Damage Event to 1.
Example: Animated Armor normally does not trigger if a hero takes 1 damage, but Cursed Blade's effect doubles the reported damage to 2 and thus Animated Armor will trigger for no effect in this scenario.
  •  Bolf Ramshield prevents the Damage Event, then creates a new Damage Event whose source and proposed damage are the same as the original Damage Event's but whose target is Bolf Ramshield (and thus "when this minion deals damage" triggers will still run). If a player has multiple Bolf Ramshields in play, only the first one to enter play will trigger and intercept the damage when their hero takes damage.
  •  Ice Block triggers if the Damage Event's proposed damage is greater than or equal to its hero's current Health, preventing the Damage Event and creating an Enchantment attached to the hero which says "Become Immune until the turn ends".
  •  Cursed Blade then doubles the proposed damage of Damage Events targeting your hero.

Finally, the character's current Health+Armor is reduced by the Damage Event's proposed damage: damage is deducted from Armor first, and any damage beyond the character's current Armor is then deducted from their Health.

  • If the target is affected by  Commanding Shout, its current Health is prevented from dropping below 1; however, Commanding Shout does not modify how much damage was considered to be dealt (for example when queried by  Imp-losion).


Resolving a Damage Event

If the Damage Event was prevented or if it did not change the character's current Health+Armor total (including due to Divine Shield and  Commanding Shout), it will not run any triggers.

Otherwise, Triggered effect#Character damage (listed in the following table) queue and resolve in play order.

Finally, if the source of the Damage Event is a minion, it loses Stealth (even if the Damage Event's proposed damage is 0, but not if the Damage Event was prevented).

For Wild format listings, see Damage/Wild format.

The following cards have effects that trigger from damage being dealt (including the Poisonous ability, which stands for "Destroy any minion damaged by this minion"; for a breakdown by trigger type, see Triggered effect#Character damage), or that specifically alter the amount of damage dealt to targets, or that are otherwise related to damage. Not listed here are cards with Spell Damage, which increase damage dealt by spells with damaging effects (see Spell Damage for a list), cards with Divine Shield, which lower to 0 the damage dealt to shielded minions (see Divine Shield for a list), and Immune effects, which prevent any damage dealt to protected characters (see Immune for a list).
