Iceman ice armor buff

can someone please enlighten me regarding ice armor of Iceman? was fighting 2nd stage mini boss UC in map 3 and pushed him to his SP3 knowing that if ice armor is on, I will only deal max 5% damage from his SP3. I believe SP3 is a single source. well, I was KO'd from that special. Am I missing something?

facts:
iceman during the fight still has more than 50% health
Ice armor is up

    Not sure which but one of the bosses in EQ has a node that means instant ko on sp3

    Definitely not working correctly.

    I'm also curious about taking a s3 when using a 5* iceman...

    If his ice armor is supposed to reduce damage to 5%, then a 5* iceman with the 20% reduction bonus should only take 4% damage, but every time I try this it still takes 5%.

    I get that there's some rounding taking place with the health percentages because it'll show 100% health even if you are a few points less than 100%, but it seems a bit odd that I'm not seeing a 4% loss even occasionally.

    20% reduction probably gets applied first which means it doesn’t matter with ice armor, always 5%

    @Kabam Miike can this be a possible bug? Please look into the matter.

    Ah, that makes sense. Thanks.
  • Went ahead and moved this to the correct thread so that it is easier to keep track of.

    @OneManArmy, when you say that this happened to you earlier this week as well, was that also against Unstoppable Colossus in the 2nd part of map 3 of AQ, or was it against a different opponent? Also, did anyone who experienced this issue have any boosts active at the time that this happened?
  • mavis_elaymavis_elay Posts: 17
    Thanks for looking into this. I have no active boosts during the fight. I recorded some clips against an UC. Noticed that just before UC animation, ice armor was nullifed and Iceman dealt a lot of damage. Will upload it later for your reference.

    i cant remember exactly where, but somewhere in act 4.3. I for sure had xp boost on but that would be all

    In this clip ice armor was nullified just as the sp3 animation start dealing more than 5% damage to Iceman

    happened in an aw a while ago against kingpin. I pushed him to l3 and he koed me even tho i had half health and ice armor
  • mavis_elaymavis_elay Posts: 17


    In this clip ice armor was not nullifed before sp3. 5% damage was dealt to Iceman which should happen.

    You used special 2. Icemen converts the armor to boost damage on sp2.

    @Kabam Miike fights above were not from AQ but duels only. You can clearly see ice armor was nullified in the first video. No boosts are active in the fights.

    Iceman’s special 2 shatters his ice armor to increase his attack power during a s2 ice armor then needs to reform to prevent more than 5% being done.
  • mavis_elaymavis_elay Posts: 17
    Hell yeah! SP2 shatters his ice armor.

    This thread can be close.

    Thanks guys for the help! 👌

    its working fine. you used your s2 which if you have ice armour up it takes that and converts it into extra attack for icey. so you used your s2 and then pushed uc to his s3 and you didnt have ice armour at the time and got kod.
    this is how it works so no issue here unfortunately
