Summoners, there was an issue with Alliance War matchmaking today preventing Alliances from being able to match with others. As a result, this upcoming war will be cancelled. There should be no detrimental effect to any Alliance's Season performance, and we will be reducing the Alliance War Season Rewards Participation minimum to 4 Wars. We apologize for this inconvenience.

IMIW Auto-Block

In AW, fighting IMIW boss with Corvus. Prepared to one shot him by punishing his heavy attack, have him down to 5%, 3 Glaive charges left, SP2 ready, hit the special and he auto-blocks it for almost no damage. Bait heavy, auto-block, repeat this last cycle 6 times in a row with auto-block.

Question is how did he auto-block and unblockable attack?

    I don’t know for sure but if you were low enough assassin might’ve prevented your unblockable.

    I do have assassin, how does that prevent the unblockable? I have never had it happen in any other match so it seemed strange.

    Did you run out of charges? I think you need to have charges for the sp2 attack to be unblockable.

    No I made sure of that, I had 3 charges left when I triggered it.

    Easy way to beat his auto block is wait for his heavy then throw yours as he walks into it. Dash back right before he uses it and use heavy

    Sounds fishy indeed. Assuming you are above 15% health and IMIW Is below 15% there should be no reason for your unblockable sp2 to be autoblocked

    IMIW also still gets armor buff after madusa puts armor shatter on him. Armor shatter supposed to stop any armor up from triggering

    I was fighting an unawakened IWIM in arena and with 80%+ health he was auto-blocking and parrying up a storm.

    There’s something going on with unblockable specials not landing. I’ve had it happen with both Corvus and Heimdall. Problem is it’s intermittent so it’s hard to get proof of it short of recording every fight with them.

    It does say in his description he will block the next attack when he has 4 or more stacks of armour, if that was the case, then he would block parry and use 1 of the stacks, soon as he gets another and the rest haven't expired the process repeats, it's when he gets below 15% that it changes to 1 stack and triggers autoblock/parry
