View Full Version : Harm Touch + gray mob = no go?

12-01-2004, 05:11 AM
Just hit 20 and out I go. I used my harm touch on a yellow mob successfully the first time (230-some damage).Imagine the look on my face when I try to use it on a ^^ gray mob; I see the orange damage text, I see the "YOUR Harm Touch hits Kizdean Gix for 220 points of disease damage" and I see the "Kizdean Gix writhes in agony" -messages, so I know it wasn't resisted.Problem? The mob, that was in red health and should've died, didn't have any effect in the health bar. It didn't drop a pixel (and 220 damage is probably around 15-20% of the mob's health). Well, 5% exp penalty to me. Yay...I feel so useful when I can't kill a gray con level 16 group mob solo at 20. Maybe my friends were right when they took up the mages instead and dumped the crusaders pre-level 20... <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

<DIV>I never tried using Harm Touch on a grey con.. but killing Kizdean at level 20 is a joke.. (or should be)  I killed him several times just out of spite when I was 19-20.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>It could be that Harm Touch, along with some other abilities, are reduced or disabled for "trivial" encounters.  For instance, HO's do significantly less damage to a Grey con than they do to a White con...</DIV>

My harm touch hits grey mobs for some 540 damage.

540? Yeah, my point being about my experience; NICE BUG SONY!! <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /><p>Message Edited by Jouk on <span class=date_text>11-30-2004</span> <span class=time_text>05:30 PM</span>

<DIV>Some info for you:</DIV> <DIV>HT can be resisted... It does work on grey mobs...</DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

I'm ok with it being resisted, but like I said; I got the damage messages, both in chat window and on the screen, but still no effect on the mob's health bar (ie. it didn't die)...Must have been a total fluke, if I'm the only poor troll SK that has ever happened to.

Nothing more frustrating then a lvl 10 mob resisting my adept 1 lvl 20+ HT lol.

<DIV>I've had that problem before, where I saw damage but didn't notice it on regular con mobs.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I'm wondering if its a bug with Harm Touch failing to KILL a mob rather than the con. Seems like when I did it the mob woulda been outright killed by it, was nearly dead but we were going to lose our cleric.. I HT'd, saw damage, mob didnt die and still appeared to have his barely slither of life.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Dunno =P</DIV>
