  • Floating Watcher can be triggered multiple times within the same turn, producing multiple stacking buffs.[1]
  • Floating Watcher will not trigger if the hero does not take damage, for example if the damage is prevented by  Ice Block,  Bolf Ramshield or Immune effects.[2]
    • Floating Watcher will still trigger if you take damage while your hero has armor; although it does not lower your hero's Health, it still counts as damage.[3]
  • Since the game does not resolve deaths until all simultaneous effects have taken place, a Floating Watcher can be buffed after being reduced to 0 health. For example, when a 4/2 Floating Watcher attacks into an enemy  Explosive Trap, which deals 2 damage to Floating Watcher and its controlling hero, although Floating Watcher's Health would be lowered to 0 by the Explosive Trap's damage, its triggered effect gives it +2/+2 and thus, the Floating Watcher will not die from this sequence of events, but survives as a 6/2 and deals 6 damage to the opponent.[4] Many of the warlock's AoEs, such as  Hellfire, behave similarly.
