Apocalypse sp1/2 (Someone plz help me clarify) Projectiles.... or physical contact hits??

Ok So I just got to the cavalier Apocalypse fight, and I brought in Tigra to have some fun, because I figured I could use her to my advantage for the miss mechanic......
But his sp1 completely WRECKED me!!!
I mean i still finished it but now it just had me curious about it



Sooooo am I to understand correctly that his sp1/sp2 are contact hits rather than projectiles???

    The blue beams are the only ones that are projectiles.... Either that or apocalypse has some way of countering miss....

    @Grootman1294 yeah, i Looked t his regular abilities, and nothing stated there.
    Maybe a node? But didn’t see any.

    Every time you evade (not dex) he reduces your chance to automatically evade by 10%. If I recall his beam alone is 3 hits so if you auto evade all of that he dropped future evades by 30%. Your lower ability gets a red icon over you showing stacks. Rng makes 10% for ai seem like 100% at times.

    He doesn’t evade. It missed with isn’t the same as evade

    Weird bug
  • LormifLormif Posts: 7,346 ★★★★★
    could it have something to do with this?

    If affected by Weakness, Slow, or Exhaustion Debuffs, prevent the activation of Tigra’s personal miss and Unblockable effects.

    apocalypse inflicts weakness on sp1 if his last thrown attack is a light attack.

    Only if you're already under a debuff though. If you've not got a debuff then it shouldn't apply the Weakness debuff.

    That being said, if the OP is using suicides, then yes the weakness debuff from SP1 will apply immediately when he starts the attack.

    At this point I think we need to see a video, also the debuff has to be a DOT ,like suicides.

    like I said I think a video at this point would be in order to see what is happening.

    If you had a poison on you then he is applying additional debuffs that end up stopping your miss mechanic. I used Tigra to fight him too and as long as you haven’t gotten hit at all, you still cause his sp1 to miss. Just don’t do it to his sp2 lmao

    That's good to know, finally a Tigra that doesn't suck (?)

    Makes sense did you dex the contact bits? His sp1 is contact till the beam which is non contact.

    If you had poison potential that he triggered weakness with sp1 "Additionally, fighting Apocalypse with the suicide Masteries turned on is probably not the best idea since he will trigger his Special Attack Debuffs without needing to land a hit." Might not have shown up before death?

    Kinda need a video for real info just reaching at mechanics.
