Surge of Light nerfed ????

Post by Gbh102 » March 19th, 2021, 9:07 am

Since few weeks I've spotted in PVP fights that Surge of Light (which tooltip says: The chance to stun is increased to 100% when the weather is Darkness) NO LONGER stun @ 100% rate while weather IS Darkness (and I am NOT talking about combats against Elementals, who ignoress weather conditions[apart of fact, that Surge of Light previously ALWAYS hits even Elementals, as tooltip says: chance increased to 100% blablabla and Elementals racial has NOTHING to do with this particular ability...]). If this is not enough, believe me or not, when weather is Darkness I have MISS more often, than STUN, even tho I am fighting, as pointed already, NOT against Elementals. WTF ? It used to work so nicely in Darkness teams, right now it's ALWAYS lottery with, usually, MISS on your opponent :(. Where is the point to use this ability in Darkness then if it's missing MORE often than hitting (even tho toolpit suggest 100% hit chance).... Anyone else had similar issue ????

Are you using it against Critters?

Under Darkness there's a 90% chance for it to hit so it's not guaranteed.

When it's happens next get a screenshot that we can breakdown why it's not working like you expected.

Ofc under Darkness there is 10% miss chance yet abilities which says: ALWAYS/100%/Guaranted etc used to not fall under 10% Darkness miss condition and they used to ALWAYS hit earlier. Right now they are, actually, missing more often than hitting, what makes those ability totally useless :(. Next time I’ll try to catch a screen shot and submit it.
PS. And no, I am NOT talking about critters.

Surge of Light was never 100% hit chance during Darkness, it is 100% chance to stun during Darkness provided it hits.

Well, ok, that's true, yet, before it was hitting, say, 9 out of 10 times, right now it's like 2/3 out of 10. Also, as tooltip say, chance to STUN is increased to 100% when weather is Darkness and, well, it used to be, afair, 100 or nearly 100%. Right now, simply, it's NOT. Which is really, REALLY annoying, as it destroys many Dark/Blind comps I did ;( (and not only me I guess).

The most common I’ve been using was Widget the Departed, Twilight and Shadow...
