    Volatile Pathogen destroying only me?

    My raid and I are very bewildered. Per the dungeon journal, Primordious' Pathogen Glands evolution is supposed to deal 100,000 per second when it gets on someone. And that seems to be the case. For everyone in the raid except myself...?

    We've been looking at death logs... Most people take the normal damage from it.. Myself? I take about 230,000 a second WITH ASTRAL SHIFT on. (Enhance Shaman) ... That's a 40% damage reduction.. Other attempts it does 190,000 a second... but, not to anyone else. We've looked, everyone else has no problem surviving it. Every attempt it gets on me, I die before healers can even target me, with health stones, everything.

    So...is this a bug? Or is there some random bullshit mechanic that makes shaman take more..? But????

    Should be easier to determine if you share your logs, but it does sound like a bug to me.

    The more he's mutated, the more damage he does. The real question is why didn't you get Purity or a heal in that time. You have two pallies; should have Purity for every one.

    Would have still died, Volatile Pathogen is 10s while Hand of Purity only lasts 6... there would still be 3-4 ticks of 230k. Not to say that healers are probably not expecting a 230k/sec DoT at that point.

    Also, Evolution didn't cause the DoT to be this high since that's the 2nd Evolution (+20%) in that log (which you would've known had you looked at the logs properly)... the Pathogens before and after ticked normally.

    "or a heal in that time": You realize thats 0.85secs right? Even assuming perfect reaction and ZERO lag that probably the cast time of most flash heals...

    On Topic: I couldn't find any unusual +damage taken debuffs on your or +damage done buffs on the boss that could cause this, should've only done 120k/sec to you not 240k...

    That's what I'm saying, ccKep ... he would need to be at like 12 or 13 stacks of Evolution to hit me that hard. If you look at other attempts and other people, he does considerably more to me than other people. Some people take less than 100k. I am pretty sure the 230k was during Astral Shift, as well, because I was popping it when I saw a pathogen.

    [11:11:07.193] Trypticon gains Astral Shift from Trypticon

    [11:11:07.404] Trypticon's Astral Shift fades from Trypticon

    [11:11:07.404] Trypticon Volatile Pathogen Trypticon 75694 (O: 153570)

    I took two ticks before I popped it, looks like, but take a look... After I DID pop it, I still took what, another 230 as it killed me?

    Those events are merely 211ms apart, that's probably some latency issue there (don't know what your latency is).

    Assuming something like 120ms latency the server actually sent you the last tick at 11:11:07.284 and received your Astral Shift at 11:11:07.313. Which would be after the damage tick (server-side).
