Khorne Shrine VFX question

Postby Adeptus Noobus » Wed 06 Dec, 2017 10:07 am

from torpids discord wrote:not sure wether this is purely a VFX thing but ranged units are not supposed to recieve buffs from khorne shrines unless they are in melee combat. does the presence of the buff circle indicate that their dmg is currently buffed or does it just mean: were they to enter melee combat now, they would be buffed?

Hope somebody can clear that up for me.

Why would ranged units NOT receive a melee damage buff? Sounds like working as intended to me on first blush.

If you're only concerned with havocs here the answer is: they have an ongoing melee only damage buff from the shrine.

A few other things might need clarification based on reading that
  • gold ring fx generally indicates that the unit has some offensive type buff ongoing
  • whether it's contributing to whatever the unit is doing is up to the player to figure out/have no idea about
  • buffs generally aren't conditionally applied based on a unit's combat state (though possible to add)
  • there's more than 1 damage modifier, you can set specific modifiers to ranged or melee weapons like in this case

Then it is as I thought. Thanks for clarifying.
