Hello!

Just a quick question:

How much damage Chogaths ultimates does? From webs database:

"Deals 300/550/800 (+0.5) damage to target champion, or 1000 damage to target minion (ignores resists)"

But I heard it makes half than that to champions. Is that right?

Cheers!

ok, so basically it works like this. I believe cho's feast is magic damage, but the calculations work the same way for physical damage vs armor as it does for magic damage vs magic resist.

so say you have cho's ulti @ lvl 3 (800 flat damage), and say you have 100 ability power (scaling @ .5 -> 100ap * 0.5ap scale = 50 extra damage), then your ability would do a flat 850 damage.

Now, say you are using it on a hero that has 50 magic resist. Magic resist (and armor) are calculated MR/(MR+100), so with 50MR you would do 33% less damage to the champ (50/(50+100)). So your 850 damage ability only does 570 damage to the other champ (850*(1-.33)).

This is why getting items that drop magic resistance are so important to dealing damage to other champs.

I thought feast did a set amount of health damage regardless of resist.

Never read that on the skill so I assumed otherwise, this is how most abilities work, but I don't play cho much so not positive.

Currently it will do the listed damage regardless of magic resistance, and is also unaffected by damage reduction abilities like Alistar's ult, or 20 stack leviathan. The damage it deals is unaffected by the current health of the target. (It was briefly nerfed to deal half damage on non-lethal blows, but that change was reverted).
