Shield piercing rune?

Anybody know what this rune will do? Is it armor-piercing? Does it ignore the shields that the barbarians get when they hit 0 hp? Does it ignore def or damage reduction? Does it ignore aegis shield?

  • It will work as intended. That’s all we can say now.

    Shield piercing runes allow basic attacks to go through shields (aegis shields, death-preventing abilities like the Barbarians have, unbreakable heart, and invincibility). It does not impact armor or damage reduction.

    For a preview of how it will work, check out sifu. Also Iris and Jin Lei's first ability for example.

  • Just basic attacks? That means those runes are worthless, what a bummer... @Joel Would've been a great rune against Emily's Aegis shield but not if it's just basic attacks. It's much easier and reliable to use Jin's aoe attack or Sifu instead.

    Tbh it would be helpful to add some more information/a description ingame...

    Shield piercing only on basic melee attack. Not aoe (understandable). Not an ability melee (not understandable). Not if an epic fires off on a basic attack (not understandable).

    I was excited about this new rune for a minute. But it's pretty worthless (unless I'm wrong about the epic not counting as a basic melee attack, which would make it less worthless.

    Don't be silly, it does wonders for making dwarves even better than they already are with all the follow up attacks from Valkin :D

    @Joel Do the SP runes work when a basic attack fires off as an Epic attack?
