Volary of the Harpy

Game mode: Single Player
Type of issue: Combat

Region: Single Player

Volary of the Harpy Harpy wing attack completely depletes stamina and damages player with shield up.
Attack is spammed and 3 hits dead with 30 stamina 30 grit.

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. In single player enter Volary of the Harpy
  2. Draw aggro from pink/purple harpies in vault.
  3. Harpy does one wing wind attack (the one where they swing there wings forward at you on the ground and a wave of wind and feathers attacks you).
  4. Blocking attack with shield drains all stamina and does damage. Try to walk out of way and another attack damages about 33% health or more. Cannot recover stamina from attack before another attack extends exhaustion and cannot defend attack and die in 2 more hits.

Is this intentional or a bug? I have epic level guardian armor on myself and thrall and cannot survive fighting one harpy.


I actually thought it was a change that’s in the testlive branch. I’d never gone into that vault before the 2.3 revamp. I guess it’s been like this the whole time?

This whole vault is absurd. Machine-gunning harpies, AWOL follower, invisible walls. It’s not a “good challenge” it’s a buggy pain in the rear. It seems the people designing vaults have some good ideas, but no idea what actual gameplay is like and how buggy everything is.

OK so not just me. I was running that vault a few times before this problem started. It was a little off and I heard about the elevator, but never experienced it. I had a decent challenge, but have been playing this game since release and had successful runs multiple times. Don’t know where the spam fest stamina kill came from, but only started a couple of weeks ago when I ran it and died super quick.

Can confirm I have experienced this too. You can have full stamina w/ shield up and blocking. Harpy will 1 shot blast you across the room and drain your stamina completely.

Was never sure if it was a bug or intended change.

Harpy chainguns are absolutely insane.

  • ridiculously high damage? check
  • ridiculously high range? check
  • ridiculously high radius? check
  • ridiculous ability to bend mid-flight to continue hitting you while attempt to move out of the way? check

Facing a single one is tricky if you don’t get the jump on it, but there are very few opportunities to face a single one, usually it’s 3-4. So you need your follower to fight them. While your horse manages to be glued to your butt your thrall or pet is off on Choose-Your-Own-Adventure time.

Trying to jump off a tree onto the mid-level walkway and discovering there is an invisible wall that prevents you from landing on the walkway and instead plunges you to your death is just icing on the cake.
