Consecrate Weapon Fails When Using Concussion Blow

Discussion in 'UHall' started by DarkScripture, Mar 9, 2009.

  1. I was using a very nice Terathan hally when I noted when using my concussion blow that my damaged dropped ALOT. So I started testing the effect. I found that when I used concussion blow that my consecrate weapon modifier was not applied. So the effect should have been CW+CB but was not. Anyone care to help me test it to see?

    It also doesn't seem to stack with slayers to a certain extent. I play a legendary mace fighter necromancer a lot, and with a silvered mace and a conjurer's trinket, I do more damage hit for hit than my concussion/crushing blow do. I'm not sure exactly what' up with that, but it seems there's some kind of damage cap for the specials. I can't get crushing blow to do more than about 95, even if I'm hitting for 100+ regularly. Interestingly, it'll do the same amount of damage if I unequip either of my two slayers (have tried with a normal diamond mace as well).

    I don't have trouble killing stuff even considering that-- I can always use my necromancy spells to speed things up-- but it is a bit annoying to have 30 mana go to waste when you forget.

    On the concussion note, the second damage is untyped based on... uh.... if memory serves the difference between the victim's max mp and current mp, while the first blow should be a regular hit.

    Just so you know this is a long standing bug.

    When using modifiers such as Enemy of One + Slayer + Concecrate, etc certain special attacks or bonus effects prevent the initial damage from being factored.

    Eg. The spell effect proc or bonus damge on a slayer weapon or on while using enemy of one/concecrate may cause the bonus damage applied by those abilities to be ignored.
    IE. if you use concussion sometimes the bonus damage is not factored when the concussion damage is triggered.
    Additionally if your weapon has hit lightning, the bonus damage isnt applied whenever the lightning effect fires.

    I noticed that as well. But I would imagine one of the reasons is because consecrate weapon sets your attack to use your targets weakest resist.

    Whereas concussion blow is something else not based on resistance.

    From UOGuide.com
    So I am guessing that when you use concussion you are using a completely different kind of attack that cannot be affected by consecrate weapon.
