    Hello,

    I thought ember did cleave damage to all targets in sleight of fist. But as was stated in
    does that mean that in the past, it you could sometimes not be hit by cleave if ember was between you and the target like this?

    You Ember CurrentTarget

    but you will get hit if

    you CurrentTarget Ember?


    is it like this or did it work some other way?

    Cleave has always worked in Sleight of Fist the same way it does in all other attacks. Only targets in the Cleave AoE get hit. So yes, before this patch the resulting damage was highly random.

    By the way, I find it curious that the author of the patch notes misspelled "sleight."
