Well, I'm a transfer from DotA so I don't know if some of the spells here work on the same principle. But I was curious as to Accursed's ulti, if it were to heal you from direct HP removal spells such as Soul Reaper's aura or Succubus' nightmare?
Soul Stealer's aura will continue to drain his HP.
I don't know what spell you are talking about for Succubus but I'm pretty sure that all of her spells also heal Accursed during his ult.
It won't work for Direct HP removal in HoN as well
Succubus' Mesmerize isn't Direct HP removal because it actually deals True Damage, thus Accursed will heal from Mesmerize if ultimate is on.

Look for my highlighted text (important information) and grey text (interesting but not required information).
I had another spell in mind, but I forgot it... yeah.
ss aura does not heal him and continues to do damage. succubus attack does pure damage so it does heal him.
i am slow >.<

Thinking of Soul Reapers aura? Cuz SS's aura is just -armor afaik...
I have also noticed that soul reaper's ult will not leapfrog his ult as it did in dota. I'm curious to know if lego's ult bypasses it but have not tested.
Given how broken accursed seems to be these days, I think it would certainly make sense to revert this back to dota's mechanics whereby any amount of damage that would kill accursed outright *before* he is below his ult's threshold will simply cause him to die. His ultimate would then only proc off attacks which would reduce him below the threshold but not kill him. It would make for an easy semi-counter to accursed, and soul reaper sees plenty of competitive play already.
Waffles was referring to the fact that bane's nightmare in dota was direct hp removal and thus not subject to reductions or immunities, nor I believe would it proc abba's ult.
Accursed is in no way broken.
As for you Legionnaire question, his ult is a kill command meaning it's not physical, it's not magical, and it will kill anyone that meets the requirements.
Also, any attack that will do >401 damage to completely bypass Accursed's Ultimate will kill him.Code:<condition test="target_health lt result"> <kill target="target_entity" /> <playeffect effect="effects/impact.effect" source="target_entity"/>
Interesting, the one or two times I have witnessed it must have been because he was shielded in some way so my ult would not have killed him. Which isn't a stretch given that he has one of his own.
Legionnaire's ult works differently than Axe's did, then. If I recall axe's was simply a check if the hero was below a certain level at which point it did some ridiculous, unsurvivable amount of damage to kill. So lego's ult will theoretically kill an accursed whose ult is currently active but who is still below the threshold.
My accursed comment was hyperbole, I'll admit - he could probably use a little tuning but he certainly isn't broken in any way. Despite being a direct port of abbadon, he's seeing significantly more high-level play without a change in the current metagame to support this disparity. I'm just projecting based on that.
Thanks for the info.
