Damaging Self with Weapon

Posts: 12
This is making me crazy. I make a weapon with my power or a card, damage a minion or the other hero with it and take twice as much damage myself. What the hell? I've had this happen with other classes as well.

I wish there was a better description for that. I didn't realize the minion would do damage back to the hero if you use a hero's weapon. The weapon's have their own health so I thought it may do damage to that one weapon & take off that weapon from the battlefield if it was hit back.

hey at least you didn't do what I did.. Had a shaman down to 4 health with a head crack and perditions blade left n my hand.... head cracked him first to combo the 2 damage from summoning perditions blade.... targeted myself by accident and nuked myself for 2 damage instead of this hero...

Couldn't finish his hero with the weapon because he had a fukin earth elemental taunt up.... FML

I don't think they should let u nuke yourself with perditions blade its too easy to do!!!!!

The same thing is happening to me. I have yet to find in any description anywhere that the weapon damages you as well. I hope they fix this.

This is apart of the game and is not getting fixed. All weapons work like this unless stated otherwise. For physical attacks and minions as well; if you attack a minion, it attacks you back. So don't spam it unless you have a good reason, like attacking a low attack minion to clear the board. It's not so bad. Think of it as 2 fireballs for the price of 1, plus you can buff it.

yep think of it as 2 hero powers that return no damage to the hero and can bypass taunt

Ew... I think stepped in the sarcasm dripping from that phrase...

There are positives and negatives to every hero power. If you'd rather think of it like a Druid power that didn't give you armor but you got to use it twice per 2 mana you spent... you're probably better off than comparing it to 2 fireballs.

There's a reason you only get 1 dmg per fireball... and its because it "returns not damage to the hero and can bypass taunt" as you mentioned
