Maybe you guys can answer a question for me. HT doesn’t do physical on basic attacks. So why does he take damage on Thorns node?

    Because his attacks are contact attacks, apart from the special 1

    His attacks still make contact, they just use energy damage instead of physical. It’s not non-contact like a bullet or laser beam.

    It's not a matter of physical or energy, it's whether or not the attack itself makes contact (touches the opponent). Dooms attack is energy, but still makes contact. Domino's second hit on the medium does not make contact.

    Yeah I read it too fast. It’s not my normal path or anything I’m use to so I read it wrong. It’s physical damage you receive for making contact. My brain just linked the 2 together like and idiot. 😂
