Tanking open world bosses means no kill credit if not in group, WHY

  • What is your character name in New World: Aardvark
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Hawaiki
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: No kill credit for any open world elites or bosses
  • Is this a bug or an exploit: Bug
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: Cannot progress any quest that reqires killing a boss
  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue: Yes %100
  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced: Go hit a boss with a tank build yourself, its not hard to reproduce, it happens every annoying time if you aren’t in a group, this issue was brought up in the closed beta and ignored so I’m kinda annoyed off its still a thing
  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: Tank an open world boss for fellow adventurers and proceed to get annoyed with no kill credit or quest progress despite hitting the boss and tanking the bosses for several minutes, this is not only incredibly infuriating but a system that shouldn’t even be in the game, requiring a certain about of % health dealt on enemies to get credit is impossible for tank builds, who have to put all point into HP in the first place
    Edit: Replaced swearing with annoyed

It’s a wrong section to talk about it.
Go to #game-feedback and write your feedback here.
For now if you want to get a kill credit you have to deal AT LEAST 10% of dmg required to kill a boss. Also is that really that hard to invite someone to group and do it with them? I group with different ppl for every quest it’s not a issue even if you don’t want to talk! Just press H and invite to group!
