Hello my friends, sorry to bother you again, but I need to know if this is a bug in Abyssal Skill (Shield Throw).

Well https://s28.postimg.org/5u8yxpdo9/Sem_t_tulo.png (https://postimg.org/image/5u8yxpdo9/)
Unfortunately the only thing that works is for the player to run out of the shield. The other benefits do not work in the enemies


And it does not 100% critical, I have other prints to prove when it is smaller than Charge, Bull Rush and Precision Strike.

Finally, my melee is strong, I have over 1k and Defense on lvl 55 and The Shield Throw is my weakest skill

Thank you so much for answering me. I love ArcheAge :D

from your own screenshots:
shield throw (normal damage) -> charge (crit damage)
shield throw (normal damage) -> (bleeding) (bleeding) precision strike (crit damage)

I am not using abyssal def so I can't tell for sure but to me it seems like it works just like the katana's hidden passive -> 100% crit on the next attack
feel free to test my hypothesis

Maybe this would work if the (granted effect) worked. But it also does not work.

Meanwhile, Shield Throw never hits critical hits

Thanks for posting my friend.

this skill is bug.. i can't got 100% Critical strike like the skill description..

because the Damage of this skills just (Melee Attack +100% or 102% when Rank 2) that so small..
oh C'mon bull rush and Shield slam have higher damage than this abyssal skill and i can got critical strike easier with bull rush and shield slam..
so that why this skill have 100% critical strike to make it powerfull as abyssal skill

so i assume this skill is bug :(

Agreed, something's weird here. It's unclear if it's

A) Supposed to add +100% of your CURRENT crit chance (which isn't how any other crit bonus in the game works)

B) Supposed to additively increase your crit chance by a flat +100% (in which case you should be critting nonstop unless someone has a mountain of resilience)

C) Literally supposed to crit 100% of the time regardless of your current crit rate or the enemy's resilience (in which case it is for sure not working as intended.)

We've emailed XL for tooltip clarification. Get back to ya when I hear somethin'.

Thanks!

Update: XL has confirmed the current tooltip is the intended functionality, meaning it is supposed to crit 100% of the time regardless of the player's crit crate. Since that's obviously NOT what is happening right now, they say they'll fix it for the January update.

Hope that helps!
