Title basically sums up the situation. I did not record a video of this.

I used Corvus against a Nightcrawler on Aegis intercept node in Tier 3. I was using Corvus in hopes to score two charges (one for mutant, one for evade + knockdown). Before I entered the fight, I popped an invulnerability boost, just in case.

Fight begins, and I start trying to intercept nightcrawler to remove his Aegis charges. On the very first attempt, he evades and dashed back in to score a hit, which is negated by the invulnerability boost. But wait, the hit was a critical, and it proc’d a deep wound. According to NC’s description, this deals bleed damage. Even though Corvus had all glaive charges up, and received no damage from the critical hit, i still received 24% damage from “instant bleed damage,” which Corvus is *supposed* to be immune to.

How is this possible? What’s going on here?

    Pretty sure his "bleed" is direct damage

    Corvus is not immune to bleed damage, just bleed debuffs. Since NC doesn’t trigger a debuff, just does bleed damage, Corvus is affected. In the same vein, Corvus would also take passive bleed damage.

    It's not bleed damage. It's direct damage and is just called deep wound.

    This makes sense. So, invulnerability boosts can be bypassed by Nightcrawler’s deep wound on crit?

    In essence, yes. Just like going into a match vs an awakened Iceman without immunity. The Coldsnap damage still occurs. The Invulnerability Boost doesn't make your champ Indestructible. It just negates the damage dealt by the 1st 3 hits that you recieve. Direct Damage supersedes this.

    Thanks for the explanation. I won’t bother with invulnerability boosts against him or champs like that in the future. Much appreciated.
