I am thinking of experimenting with Rotten Carnage team-builds in my latest game, and I had a few questions on the mechanics of the Rotten Carnage ability “Death’s Advance”.
Death’s Advance grants the Carnage 30% of the attack of the friendly creatures on the left and right side of the Carnage.
Is this calculated at the beginning of combat? Or does the bonus change dynamically if the creature next to Rotten Carnage gains or losses attack during a fight? (For example, if the creature on the right gets Sap, does my Rotten Carnage lose attack? If the creature on the left gains increases its attack every time it hits, does my Rotten Carnage also gain attack?)
Does my Rotten Carnage lose the benefit of this ability if the creature next to it dies?
Does this ability include the Attack bonus that the creatures on the Left and Right are receiving from Artifacts? (I assume the answer here is “Yes”, but it could be base attack) If the creature next to my Rotten Carnage is a Brim Smith, is the “Death’s Advance” bonus calculated after the Brim Smith ability gives the Brim Smith bonus attack from its artifact?
