Vorpal Radial (Incarnate) text misleading


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The Vorpal Radial incarnate power says in the text it provides "Self +Defense(all)" but in the Detailed Info it provides "+x% defense debuff".

+Defense is not the same as Defense Debuff Resistance. I would expect anyone reading the text to interpret Self +Defense to mean an increase to their Defense attributes (M/R/A, S/L/F/C/... etc). This is further backed by the "(all)" as Defense Debuff only applies to all damage types - there is no +Def Debuff Res to S/L only for example.

It would be better if the power text read "Self +Defence Debuff Resistance".

Are you sure you are talking about Void? I use the Void Judgement powers, and even in game, I'm not seeing any such comment for the power description for any of the radial powers. (Edit: My main, a Ninja/Dark MM, has the T4 radial Void. And it definitely does not buff the character when used.)

  • metacore changed the title to Vorpal Radial (Incarnate) text misleading

I'm not sure why it displays as defense debuff, but it gives +30% Base Defense. Probably just a display error related to Base Defense being the defense type lowered by defense debuffs.

You are correct, the text is misleading and is wrong....  However, Vorpal Radial does not provide any DDR at all.  It DOES give Def to all. 

 

I just retested it on my blaster and I get 27.62% Def to all for 10s and my DDR remains at 0%.  City of Data also confirms it's defense to all:  https://cod.uberguy.net/html/power.html?power=incarnate.judgement.vorpal_total_radial_judgement

 

So, the text needs to updated to state "X% to Defense (All)"

 

Additionally, in City of Data, it states it affects 30 foes max.  But the in-game text states "up to 40 max."  I know I've affected more than 30 mobs with it before (like Market Crash at the end with the huge field of Sky Raiders.  3 groups of 15+ each and all but a few are affected).  But nevertheless this inconsistency also needs to be looked at and fixed.
