DOT Spells not working properly

  • What is your character name in New World:
    Baymax5000

  • What server/world did you experience your issue on:
    Pohjola

  • Describe the issue you are experiencing:
    Damage over time spells not applying damage and effects properly

  • Is this a bug or an exploit:
    Bug

  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay:
    Casting a dot spell, such as Ice Guantlet’s Ice Storm and Bow’s Poison shot on a full hp enemy will not deal damage. It will also NOT apply the effects (slow/poison) correctly.
    NOTE: For the bug to occur with poison shot, the shot must be fired near the enemy at their feet, since if the arrow hits them the target won’t be full hp anymore for the bug to occur - bug is easiest to reproduce with ice gauntlet

  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue:
    AFAIK, there’s no way to get dot spells to work correctly on a full-hp target

  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced:
    I’m not able to screen record new world (maybe another bug), but try the ice gauntlet ice storm spell on any full health target

  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced:
    On a full health target, cast Ice Gauntlet’s ice storm spell on it.
    Expected: target should be damaged over time and slowed
    Actual: target is unaffected
