Terrible Turnip bug?

Post by Index » July 1st, 2021, 10:03 am

Per title, weakening blow apparently doesn't always take enemies to 1HP it seems, I've killed a few rare pets by mistake when trying to capture them!! Be warned.

This bug happens due to the rounding maths that pet battles use, magic pets are one that comes to mind due to their racial.

Are you sure the pet isn't doing an ability that causes itself damage? I have seen quite a few pets in SL do this, especially in the new zone.

I have yet to see weakened blow kill an opponent, and I strictly use it for new pet captures.

Nope, it was a standard critter type creature, it was 100% the weaking blow that killed it. Perhaps a rounding error, but it's happened a couple of times now, never happened before...

We replicated the bug with a magic pet and it's racial activating the same time as it gets hit. It's probably one rule coming into effect before another but inconsistencies are common in pet battles.
