A question. Does Gangplank's Parrrley and Cannon Barrage do physical damage or magic damage?

Parrrlay does physical damage, Cannon Barrage does magic damage.

Thanks for the input. Maybe I'm mistaken, but it seems Parrrlay gets blocked by Morgana's Black Shield and Sivir's Spell Shield which are supposed to absorb spell damage!

You don't need to post the question in two threads, one is sufficient and will be seen.

Morgana - should not block the damage of Parrley because the damage is physical and her shield is blocking only magic damage.

Sivir - is blocking "a single enemy spell cast". Parrley though it is dealing physical damage it is still a spell and Sivir should block it.

Am posting xpsychedelico's reply for the sole benefit of others who might be interested in the issue. Moving on. Over and Out.

"Sivir's shield blocks any one ability, regardless of damage type. Spell damage is ability damage, not necessarily magic damage. Pantheon's abilities do physical damage as well, but they are counted as spell damage. Which means the damage taken will be negated by armor instead of magic resist, but it is still an ability, a spell.

Morgana's shield is a little more tricky right now. It will absorb a certain amount of magic/spell? damage, so auto attacks will still pass through. Now, if Morgana's shield blocks say 100 spell damage, if Ashe hits the shield with her ult, it will break the shield and maybe still do 200 or so (not sure!) damage but the champion will not be stunned. So it's safe to say that it blocks CC. However, I think it does not block debuffs now. Ignite can be placed on the shield, and will eat away at the shield until it deals all damage or breaks through it. If someone is ignited, and you shield them, it will do nothing. If Morg has the shield up and walks on Teemo's shrooms, with enough damage, the shield will break on impact and Morg will still take the DoT damage and slow. So if your Parley does not do enough spell damage to break Morgana's shield, then the champion will take no damage.

Not sure if this is entirely correct, since Riot didn't announce the change. Someone want to clarify?"
