blacksmith shield buggy?

Postby fifoforlifo on Thu Jun 21, 2012 4:42 am

Playing as Human Fighter in the forest level.
I had the blacksmith shield, and indicator is on character that damage is reduced by 2.
However, after attacking a L3 Meat Man (who does 7 damage), I took the full 7. HP from 32 -> 25. Attacked again, went from 25 -> 18.

Is this a bug, or do I misunderstand how damage reduction works?

You were probably cursed. Curse is an effect in the game that temporarily removes all resistances and damage reduction. Curses stack, but you can remove a level of curse by killing a non-cursing exp-granting monster.

Apologies if the animations aren't solid yet, we're still working on Curse as an effect, right now it uses the old Resistance Erosion animation of the shield being broken.

Oh, thank you for explaining that! I replayed that area and it's exactly as you said.
In fact I didn't even see that debuffs appear in the player portrait next to class buffs until now .. but will be paying attention to that from here on out.

Yup, we'll be adding animations to those when they pop on/off as we get closer to release. That's something we need to communicate to players better :)
