Second attack of three sometimes misses?

Post by Jwb » June 28th, 2024, 4:53 am

Has anyone else noticed a change in pet battles where the second attack of a triple attack (such as flurry) sometimes misses? I believe it started happening 2 or 3 months ago. I thought it was a bug, but it hasn't changed. Did anyone catch anything in patch notes or a blue post about them changing this?

As best I recall. this is a side-effect of a fix for a previous bug that wasn't handling misses correctly.

Abilities like Flurry and Slicing Wind "Rapidly strikes at the enemy 1-2 times". pius an extra hit if faster in the case of Flurry.

Before, half the time we would see one hit in the log. Now, half the time we see one hit and one miss.

The effect is unchanged; just the display and logging has changed.

So if you Flurry when faster you will now see

1. one hit on the first
2. either a hit or a miss on the second, 50:50
3. a final third hit when faster.

This is the explanation, makes perfect sense. Thank you!
