Hardcore players beware! A2 Keywarden 1shots through shields

  • odi
    I'll probably post about this over in the Hardcore forums as well, if only to save some grief from unsuspecting players. For those of you that don't know, the Act 2 Keywarden now REFLECTS missles that are currently in his Slow Time bubble if he starts to whirl. The results can be... unexpected, to say the least.

    Yep, you see that right. I died with a 35k shield still up. Not only that, but it was completely instantaneous, no warning whatsoever. I also would like to mention that I have 80k hp and nearly 1000 all res thanks to the new lewt stat seeds.

    Regardless, while simply avoiding the damage is fine (now that I'm aware of the mechanic), I don't see how it's possible to die with shields on. So yeah, bug = reported :P
  • The shield still displaying after you die is pretty high on my team's list of things to investigate. It seems to be a UI/Display issue only from what I've read and observed myself, but we are going to take a look at it and make sure.
