Negative Physical Resist?

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Shantia, Mar 26, 2009.

    I wear the sorcerer's armor suit, and run protection on two different characters (different accounts) and after this most recent reset/fix both characters are in the negative physical resists. I've repeatedly turned on and off protection/reactive armor/magic reflection and nothing puts it back to normal. Is anyone else having problems with this, and if so has anyone figured out a way to fix it? Killing myself didnt even work. =(

    Well i'm in que ingame about it, if they can help i'll post again if its something easy to do.
     
  4. I had something similar a while back with my Sorcerer's Suit. A GM had me strip down, and then he fixed me...err...it :D

    Well. I got an auto responce saying it was my spells. Now i have to wait in line again with a new que because the GM is to ......whatever.....to take the time to actually respond to me like i'm not a complete idiot. *annoyed*
     
  6. All my chars who had become 4/0/0/0/0 & one who had become 8/0/0/0/0 as a result of the 'fix' in publish 58 have returned to all 0's since the downtime.

    I realise yours is a diff problem but have you checked it since?

    A gm can fix ya. You just have to specify you have no active spell buffs on and no other enchants in the page. It's sad you have to think around every possibly excuse a GM can use to send you to the knowledge base every time you page one.

    Fifth page was a charm. The four prior I was sent to the knowledgebase for resisting spells. Sometimes you can explain things too much, yet not enough. :(

    Well i got another automatic message with no interaction. GM Stated that the issue is noted and being worked on to resolve it. Suggested i send a bug report *grumble*. Wonder how long we're gonna have to wait around with negative resist before they fix it. One of my characters is at negative 44, even with her suit on its pathetic cause i have to run protection to survive in pvm. *sigh* Well atleast i didnt get the 'shove off idiot' message again.

    One thing that really bugs me is my first petiton i stated clearly that protection was not running. Second one i had to all CAPS that no spells were affecting me. Second petition i just sat around in my house just so i wouldnt have to run protection and have the gm think me an idiot again. So basically i sat around for 3 hours waiting for help and got none? Ahh well customer service sucks in all games i guess.

    If anyone can actually get through to a gm and have them come help them, send me a private message with what you said lol. Both my petitions got to 7 then i got the dreaded message button.

    Does anyone know how to re-create this? I want to have neg phys resist, put on a 100% RPD suit, protection, and cast attunement.

    I then would like to stealth up to a stacked out DI archer and attack him.

    I thought I had lost my mind when I noticed that I was in the negative with the physical resist. I'm wearing the Scout armor with no spells/buffs/enchantments and I'm showing that I'm -28 physical resist when stripped down to my skivvies.

    Add me to the list. I do not wear a sorcerers suit and I am -16 with no buffs and completely naked. I should really check my other characters, but then again, I don't think I want to know. Should I bother paging or not? *sigh*

    Here's what seems to be wrong:

    The sorcerer's suit has six pieces to it. Each piece has +7 in each resist, which would normally give only +42 in each resist. The difference between 70 and 42 is 28, i.e., you get a 28 point bonus to each resist when you wear all parts of the suit.

    What seems to have happened is that the "sign" on the the 28 point bonus that should go to the physical resist when the entire suit is present has been changed from a positive to a negative. It looks like the 28 point bonus in the physical resist is added in when you have the whole suit on, but then it is taken away. Unfortunately, the taking away of the 28 points in physical resist seems to "stick" to your character, even if you completely remove the suit, log out, and close the client. I imagine something similar might be happening with other suits that provide a bonus to resists when you wear a suit that gives the message, "The magic of your armor combines to assist you!" when all parts of the suit are worn at once.

    This bug...for clarification...can happen on ANY suit...

    It seems any char that uses reactive armor has the bug, if your char doesnt seem to have the bug then Im betting that char hasnt died since the fix tonight. This goes for any armor not just sorcerers armor

    Nope, it's not reactive armor causing the problem in my character's case. She is wearing the sorcerer's suit but has never used ANY buff spells.

    I checked the darkwood suits and they are fine. The resists on those suits add up to at least 70 and don't get a buff when the whole suit is present. They get mod buffs when the whole suit is present. I'm guessing this problem affects suits that give a bonus when the resists, for some reason (e.g., full suit present) get a bump beyond what they add up to normally.

    The Scout's Suit from last year's Spring Cleaning event also gives a +28 bonus to each resist when the whole suit is present. I'm guessing that wearing it will bug a character's physical resist, but I'm not willing to experiment with the couple of suits I have. They can just sit and gather dust in the boxes where they reside now until this is fixed!

    Is your character wearing a suit that gives a bump to resists when all the parts of the suit are present?
     
  32. rajadeah

    rajadeah Guest

    Well obviously its affecting anything that gives a physical resist bonus whether it be set armor or a spell buff like reactive armor. It seems upon death the physical resist bonus from spells and set armor is being removed twice. Just need to be careful here not to send the wrong message that is it only affecting set armor when it is not, it is affecting anyone wearing regular armor and using reactive armor.

    The problem with the suits is affecting characters that are just wearing the suits and haven't died in them.

    Hopes the QA/devs fix it fast now that the GMs have received orders to leave it to the QA team.



    Actually, we have similar issues when users don't report problems properly too, so I understand why people need to be as concise as possible when reporting faults. I do agree that the canned messages need to go. It really makes them look incompetent or indifferent.



    Eg Actual incident with one of our users:

    "There's a network problem, I can't login."

    *scrambles to check network status reports and alerts* "There's no network outage that we know of, what do you see on your screen?"

    "It's blank."

    "As in it just shows a black screen or do you mean it's showing the corporate logo?"

    "No, it says 404, page cannot be loaded."

    *ahh, user is referring to a website login. checks proxy, gateway* "There's no outage on the internet or intranet access either, may I know which site you are accessing? Are you able to access other sites?"

    "Yes"

    "Do you mean that you are able to access other sites and only this site is not working?"

    "Yes"

    "May I know which site you are accessing"

    *gives url of some golf site* "But the site is working, I was able to login yesterday. It's got to be the network"

    "....."

    Every plus physical item is being subtracted from your character at present. Unbuffed wearing the sorcerer's suit, a bracelet w/ +8 phys, and a shield w/ +5 phys gives me stats of 39/70/70/70/70... a loss of 41 phys...which is equal to 28 (from suit) + 8 + 5.

    Naked and unbuffed, I am -44/0/0/0/0. With armor and equipment after casting RA, resists show 55/70/70/70/70, 41/70/70/70/70 after stacking with protection spell, and casting magic reflect on this results in 17/70/70/70/70, Now if i really want to nerf myself, I take off my armor and equipment, remove RA, and leave magic reflect and protection; and what's showning is -82/15/10/10/10. This really puts a crimp in fighting, ganked by stats!

    On a bright note, my warrior who doesn't use reactive armor, or protection, is still all 70's.

    Work this one out...completely naked im 45 in all resist!!!

    (joking thats resist spells :p)

    But seriously without any buffs cast completely naked i have +10 phys and 5 in the others, this does stack with the magic reflect and reactive armour so i aint paging :p
     
  38. Ack cant they fix something these days without breaking something else? Im not having the negative resist problem everyone else is but when I take my suit off my tamers resists are at 33/14/23/30/18. This guy dosent even have resist spells so Im sure sure those should be reading all 0s without his armor on.
     
  39. Chiera

    something is definitely very very wrong... one of my chars has -16 physical resists naked without any buffs or debuffs. And no, never even touched a sorcerer's suit with it.

    Furthermore I just noticed that on some chars reactive armor/spellreflect/protection was gone when I logged in today.

    A bit of a mess actually
     

  40. So I can assume now that it not worth the time to page on this problem?????!!!! But to just wait till they fix it?
     
  41. I was hoping for a patch roll back... This is crazy to leave this.. FIX THIS NOW!!!!!
     
  42. Would be nice for them to have this fixed by today but there track record of fixing something the day after they broke it isnt too good.
     
  43. If this were a skill issue, I could play another char. Being as it is a resist issue, each and every char can be adversely effected.

    I guess I could re-skill my char till they fix it.. Go Tamer/Stealther. If I am not being hit then resist matters little.

    I know its all affecting you negatively but, what i would like to see is the devs wait for that website i cant mention...that has that programme that doesnt exist...that helps you to do things while your not there, to update its programme that doesnt exist to work with the latest patch, then the devs release the new patch so it once again doesnt work :p

    I did read your statement. It isn't accurate to say that all armor is being affected.

    I have characters whose resists are just fine. The physical resists on their armor and jewelry add up correctly and taking it all off does not leave the characters with a negative physical resist figure.

  47. Have you tested this apon death? Seems to happen more when your char dies.

    Nope.... I will go make them commit suicide now.

    Added: Had all three characters get killed and their resists after rezzing were the same as before they died. Pre- and post-death screenshots added to my post above.
