@C0ntr1v3d said in Darmith's Bodyguard:
I agree that players who have taken advantage of an obvious bug have no cause to complain when that bug is corrected.
But this is not like Kihaku applying 100% possession and freeze on 0 CD with a 50% skill. I do not consider Darmith's Bodyguard was obviously bugged.
Just because you don't consider it does it make it any less true. Also i find it questionable that you consider a move doing 100% rather than 50% more obvious than a move that was doing massive damage and is more commonly used. unless you were keeping track of numbers and calculating %s there is no way a spotting a % difference is easier than spotting a move doing massive damage. I didn't even know about it till these threads, always thought the 50% possess/freeze meant either freeze or possess will land except if resisted, attributed it the times it landed to luck, and I even have the single possess/freeze that is more reliable and use it instead more often.
When queried, Support confirmed it was working as intended. And Ingenica's special used to apply possession and then trait disabled; when queried, the effect order was reversed, consistent with the way Fire Cursed was working since release.
yes because we all know support are very reliable in game mechanics. it takes me several tickets often for them to even know what i am talking about.
I appreciate that other monsters like Nishant's Bodyguard with Niff apply damage and then weakness, but there was no reason to believe that Fire Cursed rather than Niff was wrong, or even for considering that all similar skills are intended to apply the order in the same way.
They had SAME description. and it was not only Niff, it was also Kiridar and also every metal monster that does magnetized and Uther's special and G Nishant. Trait disable is completely different than weakness why do you keep making the comparison to that ONE move instead of comparison to the several moves that also do weaknesses? that makes no sense.
Applying Fire Weakness first in the resolution order certainly increased the damage very significantly against monsters without resistance (and most have resistance these days), but it was not a threat to game balance, on a readily available f2p monster.
guess what Kihaku is also readily available compared to others, he was in 72 hr challenge where low level accounts were able to get it easily, (We know we dont like that :) ) but "possess + freeze" is more serious threat when u have xiron applying megestun, mega possession and mega freeze + ignite? + pretty sure they can still be resisted even when they hit. he is in sea and water, a faster thetys which everyone has takes care of him. point is no he is not MORE game breaking than any other bugged monster.
and yes it was, maybe it was not a threat to your elite teams with nemesis and artifacts and all that but it was to us.
please tell me which readily available fire monster, dragon monster or team book monster has resistance to fire weakness? you keep claiming it fire resistance is so easy to avoid.. how exactly? if you are concerned about FTP most use Shallinar, Greedy, Vada, Igursus, megaosteum, who among these had a chance to resist fire weakness?
It was bugged, it was fixed, get over it people. Every bugged skill should be fixed. It does not matter if YOU believe it is affecting the game badly or not, and if people want to blame me, so be it, cry me a river :) but do not pretend it is anything more than being bitter u spent war coins on it and it no longer gives u easy wins... adjust ur strategy, go breed a vada he does good damage when ranked.
