Hi there!

Thank you for raising this issue you encountered. I just want to let you know that I have properly documented and submitted this game behavior to our team for further investigation. At the moment, we cannot make any promises about a definite fix. Though please stay tuned on our official channels to make sure that you would not miss any update.

Thanks a lot for your help. Have a great one!

I experienced this bug today in a war. My musket is split with void damage and IS an INT weapon. There was a particular few people that my musket shots were doing my void split damage as 0. I was literally hitting this guy for 600 thrust and no elemental running 300 Dex 150 Int. Please look into this @Magva I dont think someone should be able to reach 100% damage reduction on an element. that sounds busted.

Yeah, this still happens to me all the time, but it is only vs certain players. That is part of the problem, as I have not been able to recreate it myself, which is why I say it feels a little like an exploit.

topaz gypsum + warhorn buff

  • +22.5% Void Absorption from T3 Horn and
  • +15% Void Absorption from topaz ( Which is busted tbh)
    Still only gets us to 37.5% reduction. Even if you slotted all void you’d still be 80 tops.
    This dude was taking 100% reduction.

It is definitely a bug or a exploit, and I don’t know what the exact cause is.

I had the same issue in Opr. I’m using musket with void gem, thurst damage hits but void side deals 0 damage. I had also Suırgeon ring which buffs void damage 4.9 but guy still taking 0 damage from void.
Server barri

I was also using Surgeon’t RIng when it happened. Do you think that is the cause?

I don’t think so because all the other people was taking damage from void but the one mage player always that doesn’t get any damage from it. I don’t think it’s because surgeon ring, maybe topaz gypsum bug,please check it out devs.

You should do in game report, and specify the name of the player so they can check out the gear/buffs they have at the time.

I try do do that, but it usually comes up in Wars and OPR when things are hectic.

I wasnt using surgeons during this occurance.

This happed to two of our musket players in OPR also against the same people. I would say this is an exploit if it only happened to one person then ok a bug but it was happening to both musket players and the healer WAS taking dmg at the start of OPR as they snipped them down then they started taking zero dmg.

Im bumping this. I was willing to bet with enough stacking and warhorns it may be possible in Wars but for it to occur in OPR means this needs Looked at. 100% elemental reduction shouldnt be achievable @Luxendra @Aenwyn

A fix for this issue is currently in testing and should be patched soon.

it wasnt just the 15% from the topaz lol. the occurrence i experienced was straight up 100% reduction.


does this only affect splid voit damage (with gem) or all void damage (VG)?

Okay, I am using t5 elemental gems and sometimes I was dealing 0 elem damage, rarely, probably to certain players. But I’m not using void gems. My assumption is that other elemental gems can be affected not just void

I have yet to see this occur on any other element but void and exclusively on people who are using Topaz Potions.

it is plausible that it is replicable with any +% damage negating potion…but so far I have yet to see it on other damage sources.
I don’t use void often and have yet to see a X/0 damage from other elements.
