Valkin Perfect Swing Not Working

Shadowblade just dodged Valkin's attack. Interestingly, he got frozen anyway, but dodged the damage portion. Perfect Swing skill description says this shouldn't be possible.

  • There isn't even an Aria to blame this time. I wonder if any of the event temporary buffs are to blame for this bug, as I've never seen it before. But to answer why the freeze landed after being dodged in this case, it seem's like the Furnace's fired up second hit autolands, allowing the freeze to then land. Another bug? Intricate feature? Idk, but it's always worked like that.
  • Just a question @Skip_Holmes. Did astrid use her boomerang shield before High King Valkin had his turn, because if that is the case, then know this:

    Astrid's Boomerang Shield can Knock enemies off-balance, lowering their Atk & making their attacks easier to dodge, in this scenario, High King Valkin gets knocked off-balanced from boomerang shield, With shadowblades extra evasion "From the shadows" he would have been able to dodge valkins attack.

    In short: The Off-Balance Debuff is every Perfect-Swingers worst nightmare.
    Total Zomminionation.

    He was off-balance from Astrid. But should that matter? The trait says he can't miss or be dodged, period. Daze causes an increased chance to miss, but dwarves will always hit anyway. Why would off balance be different?

    I'm not so sure on that. As seen in the second pic, shadowblade's health is still 100% after the attack. If Fired Up had hit, shouldn't it have done damage?

    Will this or the MK disease crit ever get fixed? I feel like we're posting into a void.

    We've been talking about this in other threads. Valkin's freeze debuff is a separate action from is damage. So even though he shouldn't be able to miss with either, missing with one doesn't mean he'll miss wit the other.

    We see this with Icebloom, who misses with hr damage all the time but not her freeze.

    "Perfect Swing: Never misses nor can enemies Dodge attacks."

    Some dense players are confused by "never misses." In this instance Never means Sometimes.

    For the record:
    * "always" also means "sometimes" (Kobal, etc.)
    * "sometimes" means "never" (basic attacks inducing effects like chill, burn, etc.)

    Off Balance beats perfect swing, it has been tested and confirmed on multiple treads.
