  2. If the target dies during the 10 secs duration of Rupture, then Rupture ends but the Overflowing Essence ability does not activate.
  3. If you swap weapons while Rupture is on a target, and you are on a different weapon while the Rupture 10 secs ends then Overflowing Essence does not trigger.

After merge we did receive 150k, but not 200k, thus our assumption is that it was because 1 of the territories did not have the taxes paid and was in downgrade mode.

  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Orofena
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: Mortar shots from the blunderbuss don’t benefit from the 15% elemental damage bonus perk you get from having 150 int.
  • Is this a bug or an exploit: bug
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: Prevents the weapon from doing the appropriate amount of damage
  • (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:
  1. Shoot a mortar round with 149 int and record the damage number
  2. Shoot a mortar round with 150 int and record the damage number
  3. Compare damage and you’ll se that increase in damage is no where near 15%
    For reference I got a 3% increase in damage by adding 1 int.
    Mortar rounds do fire damage anyways, but you’ll also see you won’t get the 15% increase in damage if you use an elemental gem either.
