Backstab damage

By zeca2017 - MEMBER - August 18, 2019, 03:37:54

Hello, I am a level 200 Eliotrope at Efrim.
I am having trouble with backstab damage through portals.
The damage (while I am) in front of enemy and the damage (while I am) behind the enemy (both through portals) are equal.

Just direct damage has the correct damage.

I have already reported many times as a bug, but Ankama says that it is not the case.

Anybody else with the same problem?
(sorry for any grammar mistakes)

Dmg done by spells casted thru portals are non-directional which means they supposed to have same dmg no metter where the elio or portal are placed towards enemies.

doesnt matter where the dmg is comming from it matters where the eliotrop is . if the portal is behind the target and u are infront of it u wont get backstab if the portal is in front of it and ur behind u get the backstab its realy weird but its fair .. it would be realy easy if the backstab is where the portals are

Thanks, I knew that ("damage (while I am) behind the enemy"), but it is not how it is happening.

Cawleer's statement about elios position matters for damage through portals is wrong and SirPercedal is right. If a spell passes through a portal, it gets nondirectional, this means the damage can't get increased by side-damage%, rear-damage% and  -rear res. Additionally it don't get reduced by rear resistance. This don't depend on where the Elio is positioned or where the portals are placed. I just tested it again, to be 100% sure.

Like Ankama said, this is an intended mechanic and not a bug.


On another note, the backstab challenge is still working with the position of the elio, but the challenges are programmed seperately to the damage mechanics.

i assure u my statement is right and theres an easy way to track it use "Enthusiasm" it will give something to work with  . this isnt a special mechanic this is how the game is Distance / Mele / backstabs depend of the postion of the target and ur position .

Portal thru damage is effected by elio's position, if you have [Wield type: Dagger] rune in your build.
