  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Hellheim EU central
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: On the great axe, reap does no damage when you HAVE the “Gravity” talent and DO NOT HAVE the “Fatal Attraction” talent. It is only with this specific combination that the reap ability doesn’t do damage.
    For example, if both the talents, OR neither of the talents are picked, reap will do damage as intended.
    This bug has been in the game ever since the “Into the void” patch, and is still bugged after the latest patch.
  • Is this a bug or an exploit: Bug
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: Has prevented me from using the build I want to play for weeks. After the GA lunge nerf I believe it’s even more important to get this fixed ASAP.
  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue: No.
  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced: N/A
  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: Make sure that the “Gravity” talent is picked, and the “Fatal Attraction” talent is not. Using reap on a mob/player will then do 0 damage.
