Super armor damage reduction doesn't work

55 posts in this topic

Posted

Been noticing it a lot lately. Running towards a ranger with lava piercer activated and he starts shotgunning me for half my hp while I am supposed to have a 80% damage reduction buff on me.Same with shake off. I try using it to dodge stun skills from strong mobs, but while I am able to dodge the CC, the damage is not reduced. Anyone else noticing this?

Getting kinda tired of this shit. Grabs don't work, Super Armor doesn't work. What's next?

That's because they probably have an outsourcing agency taking care of the customer service in order to cope with the large amount of users rather than having a fully trained in house team. So those outsourcers probably only got a day of training and a power point about BDO. Standard issues are covered by Zendesk macros and anything else outside the norm wont be answered properly I guess.

It seems pretty unreliable if it is supposed to give heavy damage reduction.  Below is a clip of me getting effectively one shot in the middle of a grab/undertaker.  The clip is pretty old though, fresh 50 in the second week of release.  I think my DP was probably around (or under) 130 at that point.  But if it is supposed to give 80% dmg reduction then something is obviously broken there.

@CM_Jouska could you please shed some light at what's actually Super Armor supposed to do and if it works at all? Yesterday I got humpend into back by two Helm Miners while Corpse Storming, it was not pleasant :(

i've been saying this since release but some dimwits keep saying otherwise and confuse it with the separate problem with the grabs & desyncs or say its working as intended with iframes. either the 80% damage mitigation from super armor is a load of BS or its broken as fuk.

clarification would be great to have, as the only reason i think this hasn't been made into a bigger deal is because the majority of ppl just gave up on this class an re rolled sorc.

'F' that!

I believe (right now) only Defence Stance has a guaranteed 80% dmg reduction.

^ replies like this confuse people.

Wrath of beast does NOT give super armour. It gives a defensive stance like warriors blocking incomming damage to the block limit.

Super armour is entirely differen't.

Huh? Wrath of beast (defence stance) does not give 80% dmg reduction. It is a shield.

SInce I have not played any other version of the game (RU, JPN, KR), I am not even sure how is the Super Armor SUPPOSED to behave. Anyone can enlighten me?

Are the tooltips just wrong? Is it bugged only in our version? Does it work on some abilities, but not others?

The best thing would be for someone to log into RU (for example), test an ability, log into our version and test it again, then post results. I am aware that we may have different numbers than RU, but 80% reduction should be really obvious.

I had to make a post on this topic as well, I have been 1 shot through super armor with 1700 HP, facing my target (Guild Boss(Medium)). I'm not even going to say please, fix my class.

I believe everyone is thinking defensive stance, although I will say I believe SA does have either a tiny amount of damage reduction, or there is nothing. 80% seems like too much, but then again I think it does work sometimes. Around a week after release-ish I remember lava piercing out of a residual lightning with extremely low health and got away, normally that skill would bring me around 65% down, I had like 20% health.. I had like 5hp afterwards, but I think what happened in that video specifically is you got the 100% black spirit sorc skill, and undertaker was right above it and you took that straight to the face.

Overall, I wouldn't be surprised if it does, but I definitely don't think its 80%.. Maybe 30-40% maybe even 50%. Who knows. I think it might just be the server messing up.

Out of curiosity, where is the source that does claims it gives 80% DR. I've heard this number get tossed around but haven't found an actual source for it.

apparently they did, but I bet it was more prepped. I'm sure. I doubt it is as bad as this.

It could be the 80% damage reduction was pure BS all along and that super armor only gives immunity to most CCs. In which case super armor works fine, for the most part.

You take no damage? I ditched that skill because of the fact I took all the damage. You go into the room, Roar, it pulls basically everyone... and then their load hits you. The point of this skill is evading me, you taunt, you get no damage reduction, do no damage and yehehe you have knockdown to which all mobs that matter are immune.
