Hi, I'm somewhat new to map making, and I have a question. If I have a trigger that looks similar to:
  • Some Trigger
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit Is attacked
    • Conditions
      • ((Attacking unit) has buff Narzost ) Equal to True
    • Actions
      • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
        • If - Conditions
          • (Random integer number between 1 and 100) Less than or equal to 20
        • Then - Actions
          • Unit - Cause (Attacking unit) to damage (Attacked unit), dealing ((Real((Strength of (Triggering unit) (Include bonuses)))) x 2.30) damage of attack type Spells and damage type Normal
          • Special Effect - Create a special effect at (Position of (Attacked unit)) using war3mapImported\frost warp.mdx
          • Special Effect - Destroy (Last created special effect)
        • Else - Actions
          • Do nothing
I am confused as to whether this damage in this scenario would be added as extra damage, or would it be done as exact damage?
Thanks for your help!

It would be done as exact damage. In fact, it can't ever be done as extra damage, because the event doesn't detect a unit actually taking damage. It only detects whether a unit has received the "attack" order. This event has some downsides, mainly being that it won't detect an autoattack (thus you activelly have to give a unit an attack/smart order), and that it's abusable by giving a unit the attackorder a lot of times without actually attacking at all.

To avoid this, you'll need to find a damage detection system. Most are made in jass. Check out jass vault or wc3campaigns.
