Assassin's Strike breaking hide but dealing no damage

Recommended Posts

So I've got two stalkers I'm playing now, and I can confirm the bug happens on both of them. One is Savage Melee, the other is Street Justice, if that helps at all.

I've noticed that, on rare occasions, using Assassin's Strike from Hide will sometimes play the sound effects, play the hit effects, break hide and draw aggro, but deal no damage at all. Even stranger still, the few times when it does this, the attack doesn't even appear in the combat log, as if it never even happened. I started monitoring the combat log, and I got some examples.

This is what it looks like when it works normally. I'd say 95% of my Assassin's Strikes work as intended this way.

However, rarely, my assassin strike will behave as stated previously. All of the sound effects play, the visual effects play as if I successfully hit, hide will be broken and I'll draw aggro from the mob I hit, but no damage is done and the combat log shows nothing.

Please note that the "Initial Strike" power is from Street Justice and is not related to the issue. In both of those examples, you see it says "You start Assassin's Strike" and then afterwards "You activated the Assassin's Strike power" but then it stops. It doesn't miss, it doesn't hit, it doesn't even exist according to the combat logs, but it draws aggro anyways.

This happens on both my Savage Melee and Street Justice Stalkers. This isn't the same as a miss. When I miss, it shows in the combat logs, and hide isn't broken. This breaks hide but doesn't even appear in the logs. Again, it's as if the attack never happened according to the game, but it will draw aggro and break hide regardless.

I've had this bug happen a handful of times.  Maybe less than 10 times total, across half a dozen Stalkers . . . but I've definitely suffered from it!

Yeah, admittedly, it is rare (thank god) but it's happening enough for me to notice it. Those two examples I posted happened within the same hour, and it happened a third time but I lost it in the combat logs before I started keeping track. I'd say it's around 1 out of every 100 Assassin's Strikes I make suffer from this glitch.

I wonder if that means that it's the Streakbreaker causing the issue (and not reporting it correctly to the logs).

Oo.  Good point.  I'll start watching my log to see if that could be the source of the issue.  Thanks for the suggestion!

Definitely happens on my stalker, but its rare. It always catches me by surprise when I expect my target to have died and I'm selecting my next target but then no damage happens.
