    PvP Dmg Penalty & Minions

    Does the 0.17 pvp penalty apply to minions the same as it applies to char's vs. other char's. Or do minions receive full dmg of your attacks in duels?
    Or does it depend on the type of minion? :scratch:

    The major problem with minion stacking is that usually the Necros that do it use huge Revives that completely cover them. In that case, they usually have a LOT of life, and you're pretty much out of luck. This is why people don't like minion stack.

    There's no PvP penalty for the damage the minions receive, but there is the PvP penalty for the damage they deal. Othewise trappers would own everyone.

    And that's also the reason IM works, as it's the same as doing it in PvM.
