Possible Bug: Decay not hitting for any damage (in General)

Oochimaru burns from the flames surrounding Pyromancer (931602)
Tsunade absorbs damage [624240]
Oochimaru takes damage from his own Decay (22614)!
Oochimaru's Decay hit Pyromancer [918487]
Pyromancer's Guardian Angel smote Oochimaru (542258)
Jiraiya's familiar takes damage from his own Shocking Grasp (79306)!
Jiraiya's familiar touches Pyromancer [1027714]
Pyromancer's Guardian Angel smote Jiraiya's familiar (616628)
Jiraiya takes damage from his own Decay (0)!
Jiraiya's Decay hit Pyromancer for no damage
R.I.P. Oochimaru

I only cast 0.66 AMF on Jiraiya, and have 4.1m HP left at the end of the fight, but Jiraiya isn't doing any damage with it. He has no mage shield on the minion.

This possible bug is in my favour, but it doesn't feel right exploiting it.

Does the RoBF reduce Decay damage?

Brakke Bres [Ow man] March 13 2009 5:57 AM EDT

not that I know off.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] March 13 2009 6:14 AM EDT

All decay is hitting for no damage.

[SIBT]Gardiner Amarth March 13 2009 6:37 AM EDT

Hrm, my decay is doing damage.

Guardian March 13 2009 8:14 AM EDT

i tried decay at easy batle and higher levels oponents.
decay is hitting for no damage no matter where.

His enchanter is likely over his ENC limit.

That makes his decay do no damage.

King March 13 2009 11:14 AM EDT

what ranger said, your decay may be reduced below base by a penalty of some sort making it do no damage.

AdminShade March 13 2009 11:27 AM EDT

Does decay or any other enchantment suffer from Encumbrance?

AdminTal Destra [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] March 13 2009 11:28 AM EDT

decay is registered as a DD and as such will be able to be encumbered

QBRanger March 13 2009 11:49 AM EDT

Decay is subject to ENC. If you have a base decay and even .01 ENC, it fails to do any damage.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] March 13 2009 11:59 AM EDT

If that was the case, why does it do damage in the earlier rounds? It's not a direct reduction from ENC, but a percentage one isn't it?

QBRanger March 13 2009 12:03 PM EDT

I see no damage in earlier rounds on this battle.

However, when I and I think novice tried it, even a .01 ENC gave no damage using decay. With all the AMF backlash also.

At least on a base decay. I do not know if a higher trained decay avoids this.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] March 13 2009 12:04 PM EDT

Yeah, it's strange that in this fight in the OP, Decay did damage in the earlier rounds, but was reduced to zero in the latter.

Wizard'sFirstRule March 13 2009 2:28 PM EDT

ENC is likely the case, thanks.

QBRanger March 13 2009 2:28 PM EDT

Who was it you were fighting?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] March 13 2009 2:59 PM EDT

I cna't see ENC being the culprit. Otherwise Deca would have done no damage over the entire fight.

Unless you're using an EXBow to continually reduce STR, the ENC gained by EC is set at he start of the fight.

QBRanger March 13 2009 3:00 PM EDT

Where are you seeing this whole fight?

QBRanger March 13 2009 3:02 PM EDT

If you mean other minions, ENC is per minion.

Oochimaru is likely not over his ENC while Jiraiya is.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] March 13 2009 3:06 PM EDT


Doh. I thought it was a couple of rounds of the same minion casting Decay...

LoL nothing to see here! ;)

QBRanger March 13 2009 3:15 PM EDT


I thought you had inside information that I was not getting.

/me feels better now :)
