Magnets: How do they work?

Post by FaeLenx » Tue Jan 14, 2020 3:48 am

Image

See razor rune and magnet rune together.

Image

Placing a magnet rune right south of the razor rune.

Image

Successfully links the two together. The razor rune immediately snaps into the magnet rune.

Image

Deals damage when moved with rush. Continues to move towards enemies like magnet runes should.

Image

But now we have a null rune down. Placing a magnet rune on it while it's next to the razor rune causes it to...

Image

Razor rune, where are you going? Why are you attacking Shivania and leaving the board? It shoots down south of the board and...

Image

Seems to link up.

Image

But if you place the magnet rune on top of an existing rune, the linked runes from that no longer function. The magnet doesn't function either. The razor rune does not do damage, and the magnet rune does not cause the link to lurch towards enemies.

Steps to reproduce: Cast a null rune and a razor rune next to each other, place a magnet rune on top of the null rune to create a link. The link does not function. Try moving the link around and see that the only functional rune in it is the null rune.

Steps to avoid until the bug is fixed: Always place down a magnet rune first. Even if this means you won't get nice memes.

Other observations

Image

Casting all runes and then placing a magnet rune beside it to link all of the runes onto it seems to still function normally. So it's only a problem when you place a magnet rune on top of an existing rune link.

Image

Placing three razor runes next to an open space and putting a magnet rune on it works as you would expect. It creates no dupe problems on the link and the link still functions as both a magnet and razor.

ImageImage
But placing a magnet rune on top of the razor rune calls the other razor rune down to the void and then on top of the magnet rune. It still functions as a single, lone razor rune. Except it can't be targetted by a magnet rune despite not having the movement resonate quality of a magnet link.

Image

And here we have 4 large links of random runes... One magnet rune later and...

Image

The rune shoots down and then fakelinks with the bottom rune. All of the runes are layered on top of each other. Lots of dupes. Only the original rune link functions.
