I have started playing around with Vampiric Aura (Mutant Vampire Bat) and I have noticed a couple of odd things. I wanted to make sure this behavior was intended.
First, with Multistrike (and the Lau rune) I find that the Vampiric Aura heal effect goes off three times even if the enemy dies on the first hit.
Second, even if an attack does zero damage, Vampiric Aura still creates a Heal effect (Healing everyone for zero points of healing).
Third, Vampiric Aura is triggering Spirit abilities (e.g. Frozen Spirit) even if it heals for zero, and even when the creature being healed is at full life.
This means that at the start of a fight when all of my creatures are at full life, I can attack an enemy using a multi strike creature … This yields 3 Frozen Spirit activations on all on all of my creatures even if the attack does no damage.
Final Note: Vampiric Aura triggers the Charity trait, even when it does zero healing. This allows me to double the number of Frozen Spirit activations that I get from my zero damage attack.
Is this behavior intended?
