Thread: that was odd

  1. #1

    Default that was odd

    I knew there was some reason why I didn't take my monk into the confluence, but I couldn't quite remember why. All it took was punching a lightning elemental to jog my memory!

    But strangely, I seemed to die in mid mstrike and managed to hit a few other creatures despite being dead already. Apparently being dead did lower my UAF by 40 points...

    Straight up fuck that entire area, imo. Only designed for a slim range of profs and builds

    I think it's odd that you get to finish off the series even though the first one seemed to do it

    I've experienced something similar with vvrael's acid splash maneuver. I was killed mid mstrike from a wound splash but continued mstriking after death.

    This is the opposite of the thing where you do a focus mstrike and your flare crit-kills on the first hit and you get 0 RT and no mstrike cooldown!

    This doesn't happen with 950. My mage got splashed with acid mid-950 in SoS and couldn't cast so 950 didn't complete.

    You get a free jab on everything you're about to hit as long as it hasn't been jabbed yet, with mstrike. Those process first, so you get all the jabs in "at the same time". That's how you died to one and still jabbed others.
