Corvus True Damage Failing

This is a thread reporting an issue with Corvus's True Damage not working intermittently.

So I'm using a bit of extra time and energy to explore Act 5 for Elders Bane, and ran into a minor issue in Act 5.4.3. This is the chapter with Cosmic Champions recommended, due to the universal Stellar Pulse node (All champions except Cosmic suffer 50% weakness)

Taking a path full of mystics (yay!) buffed with 80% Physical Resistance + Bleed Immunity, I noticed that my Corvus was intermittently doing minimal damage. I can only assume the Physical Resistance was in effect, despite Corvus having his True Damage buff active. And he's only a 5/50 (I don't have the biggest roster!), with Class Disadvantage, so he could do without bugs hindering him!

So here's a typical Medium attack (only one Cruelty buff):


Here's another medium doing lower damage a few seconds earlier in the same fight:


That's a pretty hefty damage reduction, I think you'll agree. It was a little irritating for me here - only cost me a few revives - but would be a lot more annoying if it were occurring for heavy Corvus users in Act 6, Alliance Wars or any up-coming Cavalier difficulty. Could it possibly be looked at, to make sure he's bypassing Physical Resistance correctly all the time?

Link to a short YouTube video I uploaded:


I'm using a Motorola Moto G5-Plus, Android 8.1.0, and I'm running version 26.1.1

Thanks, guys!

  • It is a known bug, an interaction between armor break and physical resistence.
    It's been in the game for some years now

    Oh good, so it'll get fixed any day now, then?

    Interestingly nothing on it came up on the first 40 results when I searched the bugs thread for Corvus bugs; so no harm in reminding the team, right?
  • Hey there, we've passed the information you've provided along to the rest of the team to look into, but we don't have an estimate on how long that will take at this time though.

    This issue just arose on Node 50 in AW, 6* Corvus attacker, Weapon X defender, Corvus was doing significantly less damage than he should with the number of charges. Seems like it pops up when there is a physical resistance node despite true damage being intended to ignore it.
