    Volcanic Touch -> Catapuls?

    My question is simple: why the splash damage of Volcanic Touch (Magmus) can damage the catapults? Isn't it magical damage?

    It's a port from DotA

    It deals superior magic damage to catapults and magic damage to anything else.

    Well why they didn't wrote it in the skill description?

    If this was done for every skill, all the details there, it would be minutes of reading for each skill. It is not key to the skill so it's not in the description.

    Whats more interesting is that this ability will damage people through Shrunken Head.

    Thats due to it having a target type that is not organic and damage that is not magic. Superior magic damage bypasses Shrunken Head and it is why Lord Salforis can damage you with Lifetap though Immunity.

    EDIT: Mag's triggers superior only against Mech.

    She strode through Sigil and none dared stand before; whether it was reverence or fear, she was always more.
    Existing beyond planes, a being above all; no angers, hatreds or grudge filled her hall.
    And with hushed voices people went to claim; but no one dares to call her, the Lady of Pain.

    Wrong. Superior Magic only against Mechanical, normal Magic against anything else.

    Why does killing a unit with points in volcanic touch cause the damage to catapults, but killing the catapult directly not cause volcanic touch to go off?

    The damage is superior magic but not the effect itself. That's why killing a catapult wont trigger it.

    I see. Its been bugging me for a while. Is it intended? or should killing catapult will trigger it?

    If it is written into the scripts then it can be assumed that it is intended.

    Its always been like that in DotA with Sand King, as to why, you'll have to go back quite a few years and find out.
