Whelps turning to defense

Postby goonigoogoo » Mon Oct 30, 2017 9:44 am

Ive been playing with whelps this weekend and I’ve noticed at least 3times that an attacking whelp has turned to a defending whelp (like its been turned by a vampire) just after it dies . Now whelps are expensive to use and having them turn is not a good way to encourage their use - Chris can you look into this please ?

this also happened to me several times this weekend.
i'm guessing hardly anyone else plays with whelps otherwise someone else would have said something.
I'll post a video of it next time and hopefully Chris will look into it?

I tried reproducing this locally but wasn't seeing the bug, so there may be another factor at play here. If you want to send me a video, that is always helpful =)

I assumed that for many minions, they only turn if the vampire deals the dying damage. But for whelps, they turn if they were ever damaged by a vamp. That was just a guess though, I never tested it. For ghosts/skeletons/etc they never turn of course.

Whelp is not loyal. It turns very often.
I have used whelp and ghost for a while. Whelp turns much more often than ghost.
It does not matter where and how it died.
Three turns a day is very unlucky but possible.

Problem is after it turns it has full health so you have to spend 100 mana on clucking off your own turned whelp

Yes, that's what I have to do too; otherwise, the turned whelp would kill my Tiny.
But all other minions turn with full health too. It is a matter of frequency how often they turn.
I agree Whelp turns frequently but it is not new and not a bug.
