    Reflect Physical Damage,

    Thats the topic.

    Ok now, from the actual name of it am i right in thinking that it should reflect damage inflicted back onto the aggressor?

    So, given that is what its meant to do, how does it manage to reflect damage before its been inflicted??

    Having a person with reflect Phys on makes them open for guard whack from blues even though the blue was the aggresor, as well as counts being handed if the aggressor loses. It also allows reds to attack the blue at will even in guard zone as the reflect physical hits first and therefore the blue is the aggressor.

    So please unless im wrong in which case devs would you inform, can this be sorted. Its not a massive affect on the game but it has pretty much made any piece of RPD armour PVP useless!

    I think you're wrong, I ran an RPD suit for a long time. The damage is reflected back after you are hit. A red can get guard whacked if I attack a blue outside of guards, they go into guards, I follow, they shoot, I reflect, I'm guard whacked.

    But no, if we are both blue standing in guards and you shoot me while I'm wearing RPD, the attacker will get whacked not the RPD wearer.

    You really should actually test things before making sensationalist claims.

    Im 90% sure it has been tested and verified, and not just by me. It was another post that reminded me of this topic.

    I once tested this and it didn't work as you claim Rich.

    So that doesn't mean it definitely isn't an issue, but that it doesn't happen every time. (I tried it once)

    He is correct... the exploit is used mainly by reds... but it can be used by blues to instant guard wack you... (hum...)

    Nystul-cats started a meaty discussion when he asked


    Was there ever any word on this?

    I'm getting tired of archers being able to hit me first just to leave me end up flagged to them just so they can run in thier house, or evade counts etc. Especially when there are multiple stealth archers doing it.

    I hate this bug with a passion. I removed all Reflect Physical armor from my mage suit just for this reason.

    This bug is most likely in our dev database. If it isn't I'll make sure it gets in there, and hopefully we can roll out a fix for this. I'm making a post on this so I don't forget. No promises on when a fix will occur, but yes, this is an annoying bug.

    Thanks for your post.
