Is it impossible to knock out thralls now?

I’m having a hard time knocking out npcs. I play on siptah and we I encounter the black the black hand. I’m unable to knockout the sorcerers and some of the thralls. Is the concussive bar broken around these camps?

So one of the new rewards is a truncheon, however, thralls can’t be knocked out? Brilliant. :rofl:

Wasn’t having any issues an hour ago, but that doesn’t mean it’s not happening.

Well, I have encountered it with the black hand on Siptah.

The Black Hand camps “The Spit” and “Sipho’s Shipyard”, the NPC’s there are not taking concussive damage

Haven’t been over to Siptah yet. I’d say edit the first post to include the layout / information they want. Not sure when their vacation starts but that needs fixed asap.

Greetings Exiles,

Thank you for reporting this!

Can you let us know if this is happening in official servers, private servers or in single player?

If you can, please, add a video where we can verify the reported behavior as well.

In software development there are many different paradigms of testing. Here’s one. The developer challenged with performing a task understands the context of what they are working with and tests not only the goal of the change, but the aspects of the product that might otherwise be impacted, before and after their change. Then they prepare adequate instructions for a QA team to understand the scope of the work performed.

Other developers performing code review and acceptance have a chance to review these guidelines and the work. Sometimes they might choose to run such things through a test. QA departments also should know their product and generate potential edge cases that might be impacted by the change in question.

Then there’s this topic called regression testing, such as having one or more of everything out in the world, or performing actions over and over release to release looking for unexpected changes. Sometimes this involves placing new elements into the world and comparing with the prior instances.

Developers or QA individuals could actually be players as well, exercising the product in the manner which the entire audience would.

I can’t imagine not testing any of this class of NPC such that might have missed this oversight.

Yes official servers are having this issue too

Official server #6155 PvE Conflict
This has been going on for a while now can we please fix this? I had a video but the forms don’t support the format and I’m not sitting here for hours ■■■■■■■■ with it.

The Ashen Core area in the Island of Siptah is confirmed with the issues I try with six different throws in the Consciousness bar does not deplete one bit even after two minutes of heavy hits with a love tap. The thralls were teir 1 and 2 with cloth armor.

I am on PC
