Well if there is no cap on the damage it does to Baron...

Your ult damage would have splashed on it, dealing 80% of (450 + 109 + 35% of its missing HP).
That's 0.8 * (559 + 3987) = 3637.

Normally abilities that deal % HP damage have a cap on monsters but apparently this one doesn't. It could be an oversight because the ability isn't supposed to explode until it hits a champion.

That was a graphical error. It goes below 2k and then pops back up to 2k even and stays there.

Her ult really needs a cap on monsters... 35%*(0.8) missing health? OP

Depends. Flame Breath, for example, does not cap on monsters.

I noticed this.

So let's theorycraft.

Is Jinx's ult able to steal baron due to missing health when Baron has ~3000 HP? The answer is a resounding YES. (2902 at his HP + flat armor damage = 3300 approximately.)

LOLOLOL. :3

That defeats a coordinated Nunu, Cho and Smite all at the same time.

WE HAVE A WINNER

I capped the bonus execute damage on Jinx's R at 300 vs. non-champions. Sorry to ruin the fun.

Max potential damage is 360 Base + .8 Bonus AD + 300 execute = 660(+.8)

I'm guessing what happened is J4 Q'd it and Jax hit it with an empowered proc right before the missile hit.

Oh. Well, thanks for clearing that up. Can we get that added in as a tooltip so it's not smoke and mirrors, please?

That means his ultimate dealt 859 damage in the video.

So Jarvan and Jax would have had to deal 1041 damage in the same instant.
