Grab Bag

Grab Bag -

The Grab Bag returns this week to once again answer a myriad of miscellaneous questions from the Dark Age of Camelot community.

Q. My Dragontooth Bracer has resists which are sheared during fights. What class is able to shear resists? Is this a bug? It’s not like they are debuffed, because they are gone until I can reuse the bracer which may be 10 minutes or so. I have only had the resists drop during fights with alb groups.

A. Our Balancinator took a gander at this one: I will venture to guess that the group you fought had a Heretic in it. They receive a group buff shear reactionary proc in the enhancement specialization line. It is a 20-minute timed buff that is cast on the whole group. While the buff is active, it has a percentage chance to remove a buff from an attacker. For instance, the level 45 spell 'Accursed Misery' has a 5% chance to remove a buff from an attacker. This, most likely, is how the resist buffs are getting removed.

For those of you playing on normal servers, there is another way an enemy group can shear resists. The 'Battlemaster' level 10 ability 'Essence Shatter' is a style that procs a point black area of effect buff shear with a 350 unit radius.

Q. Does the 5% to magic damage on the Dragonbane Recurve Bow count against other players in RvR? I ask because the info does not specify PvE or PvP.

A. The Bearded Wonder looked into this for us. Here’s what he had to offer: The delve for the spell damage bonus lists the following: " - Requirement: vs Humanoids, Magical, Giants, Dragons" which indicates that the bonus is PVE based. You will not get any bonus against other players.
