    Can't see it in the description. I'm currently playing 6.83c, but I'd like to know what's the multiplier for RGC version (6.85) and dota2 as well.

    1x like it's always been

    It hasn't "always" been 100%, but it has been since 6.58, around 8 or 9 years ago. But in Dota 2 v6.87, the damage calculation was changed. Specifically:

    • In DotA 1, the incoming damage is calculated after hardcoded reductions then returned as pure damage. (Attack Type: Hero, Damage Type: Magic)
    • In Dota 2, the incoming damage is calculated before any reductions then returned as damage of that same damage type.

    Again, IceFrog is making use of mechanics that are not really possible in DotA 1.
