Mesmerize and True Strike

OnmixOnmix Posts: 359 ★★★
I tried my Heimdall on mesmerize hoping True Strike doesn't trigger the mesmerize stun.
It did.

Considering True Strike doesn't trigger passive evades, shouldn't it work for mesmerize?
If you know the reason as to why mesmerize evade is different please let me know.

    The same issue happened to me. It seems like a bug. However, it appears that some evades (like the labyrinth evade) might be immune to true strike.

    Weird, my KM seems to have no issues with mesmerize. I've used him pretty much every mesmerize fight so far and his true strike works. Or at least it never activated when I was using him.

    Not entirely the same issue, but I’m going to go out on a limb here and suggest that Mesmerize as it is coded in Epic trials may be having some odd and perhaps unintended effects. Here’s the thread:

    Take winter solder and killmonger and you can keep true strike up almost constantly, However I was nailed by the mesmerize node with killmonger with true strike active so it is probably bugged. I think that kabam may be putting mesmerize out there to make people go for the drunk they just released as he can be immune to stun, just my 2 cents though.

    Heimdal does not have True strike but True Sight.

    Heimdal attacks cannot be dexed when True sight is active. Due to this, He cannot stop mesmerize evade, or even characters with passive evade like Spiderverse champs.

    Yea that's just not factually accurate at all. I've had 5/50 Heimdall since his featured arena and he 100% most definitely shuts down passive evades like Spidey and NC as well as autoblock like Modok and Medusa.

    NC Autoevade Yes
    NC BAMF not

    If Killmonger’s true strike is working, then it looks to be a Heimdall related bug.

    As a side note, Heimdall’s true strike buff is actually true strike. When it is up, defenders don’t trigger evade. This includes: Spidey, ultron, nightcrawler, etc.

    It literally says that his passive, true sight, activates a TRUE STRIKE BUFF. The fact that he can't be dexed is a bonus, not the only part of the ability.

    Silly question but did you use a special to activate the true strike buff?

    If you have a mordo he's great for mesmerize also Archangel and his toxins work very well.

    Lol yeah of course I did.

    I think it should be looked into considering the difference in results from many players. Sadly I couldn’t get it on video. Hope they read and look into it anyways.

    I did with AA and it’s mainly easy.

    But it’s not a matter of beating it with other champs, it’s a matter of fixing Heindall if he is bugged.

    Yeah, true strike stops the evade but not the stun, kinda pointless if you ask me.

    Kabam if you're reading, could we get some input?
