weirdest thing I've seen in awhile

Post by Skavenged » July 14th, 2014, 8:05 am

Had a really close fight last night. It came down to my DAH with 600 health vs a valk with 24 health and poisoned. Since I had blinding poison available, I naturally assumed I had it in the bag... WRONG!!

I cast blinding poison, which hits. Valk then hits me even though he's blinded, with no other buffs or debuffs. End of round, poison ticks and valk dies. Again, I naturally assume the first hit was a fluke, and I've still got this, but NOPE!! I hit valk for 14 damage, and the blinded valk then hits me again and kills me. Valk dies, and we end up with a draw.

yep, happens a "lot" blinding poison ONLY reduces hitchance but doesn exclude you from being hit...

Yes, but that usually involves other buffs or debuffs. In this case, there were no other buffs. The Valk was using a base toHit of 85% minus 100% due to blinding poison. Valk should have had -15% toHit

Its speculated that it actually turns into 15% chance to hit due to wonky debuff mechanics.
