Hello, Should we add new topic for BM interaction with other items/abilities? e.g. how blood mail interact with Blood seeker rage/ interaction with abysal, etc The preceding unsigned comment was added by MapDesigner (talk) • (contribs) • Please sign your posts with ~~~~

The page already says that it reflects damage before any form of damage manipulation, and that the damage is affected on the units on the receiving end, since it is still magical/physical/pure damage. There are no special interactions, it is consistant. ~~ Bu3ny (talk) 15:50, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

"Damage Block has a chance to proc from attack damage, but not physical damage from abilities (except for Moon Glaive icon.png Moon Glaive​ and The Swarm icon.png The Swarm​)"

Blade mail is not attack damage nor it is ability damage, so it is unclear in which category it falls. Apparently any physical damage reflect by blade mail is considered as right click, even if it was spell damage. MapDesigner (talk) 16:53, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

Blade Mail deals spell damage. The damage block interaction doesn't decide this, since spell damage can be blocked by it as well (see The Swarm and Moon Gliaves). It certainly does not count as attack damage. ~~ Bu3ny (talk) 17:21, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

Ummm, spell damage and ability damage are the same thing or different? (because it is stated it doesnt block abilities but doesnt mention spells) MapDesigner (talk) 17:40, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

"Ability damage" isn't a thing, it's called spell damage. ~~ Bu3ny (talk) 18:01, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

The article describes damage reflection, which suggests the original target of the damage does not suffer the damage itself (since it is reflected). But this isn't what happens at all. Instead the damage is duplicated and a copy of the damage inflicted upon the target is applied to the damage source. THe article should be updated to make this clearer.
