Hi there, i just wanted to check if this is a bug or a change to the way i remember Ice Patch working.  It was (and as far as i can tell) was meant to be a slippery patch on the floor that keep mobs slipping and bouncing on the floor (so they weren't hitting me).  I finally got the ability on my ice-fire tanker and was shocked to find, the mobs slipped and bounced out of the ice pushing them out of melee range making them attack using ranged attacks.  some times they will run back into melee range but most of the time I'm forced to chase them to kill them.  I remember this was a bug in the original game (that they fixed) but is it the way it's meant to be working or is it a bug?  Just to clarify, i don't have any knockback enhancements added and the description says knockdown (not knockback) is what it is meant to do.

Are you fighting enemies lower in level than you or ones like clockwork that are vulnerable to kb? In both cases the mag of kb can be increased enough to become actual kb rather than kd.

one run was Clockwork but the others were skulls (i think) that were about the same lvl as i was (maybe one lvl below)

 

Clockworks have this (annoying) gimmick where they have a weakness to knockdown turning it into knockback.  But for the rest you must have been fighting at least -2 enemies which is about the threshold for KD to be turned into KB.

 

I suggest you test again paying closer attention to the levels.

How many Ice Patches are you throwing out at a time? Knockback powers were reworked with a new mechanic called Knock which replaced the old knockback mechanics. The old knockback powers couldn't stack knockback from different sources, but Knock can, so putting down multiple Ice Patches can often send enemies flying.
