Correct me if I'm wrong, but does the "Data - Accumulation Step" in the Orc ability Pillage mean each attack? And how much do you get exactly each time this ability activates?

P.S.
Is there a better alternative for this ability? :D

Comments are much appreciated! :goblin_good_job:

Sigh this brings back sad memories of trying to use pillage to detect
whether damage was a spell or whether it was a physical attack. It
ended in absolute failure.

Don't change the "gold step" to 0, and don't change the ratio too high.
If the ratio is too high then when a unit attacks for large damage it
will cause unbelievable lag.

Aside from this, the reasons it can't be used to detect if a damage was
physical is because 1) low-damage units won't trigger a gold/lumber
gain right away and 2) the unit has to have a gold or lumber cost in
the first place which is not always true.
