Multiple Chestplates will thus stack and reduce the flank weight even further, in the event there is a hero who flanks naturally and also has gear equipped to increase the chance to flank.

    The value on GotS is significantly larger than on the Chestplate, enough to effectively counteract all chance to Flank.

    We haven't made a decision on the multiplier improvement on Taunt yet...

    Thanks for the insight, this may have just saved me hundreds of gems in the upcoming pvp

        So Kitty's targeting is the "Wounded Targeting" which was explained above.

        Arms of the Champion has a basic Quick Targeting mechanic applied. Each of the basic targeting mechanics applies a weight of 5000 for their specific type, and these are:

        * Wounded Targeting - more likely to attack the enemy with lowest % health
        * Quick Targeting - more likely to attack the quickest enemy
        * Slow Targeting - more likely to attack the slowest enemy
        * Brave Targeting - more likely to attack the most powerful enemy

        There are other forms of targeting called "Hatred" which are used for being applied to specific enemy groups, such as Arlathan General who applies a Hatred of Tevinter, causing allies to be more likely to attack Tevinter. These range from 2000 - 5000 in weight.

          Hi, The Chestplate of the fortress gives -5000 in weight? and how its should looks like with only 1 Heavy taunt (quick) in BR and 1 chesplate and 1 quick targeting enemy? Its 1000% something is wrong with targeting, for example how kitty could hit GoTS in BR with dalish banner in BR and chestplate in my team? Or Arms of the Champion applies a weight of 50000 instead of 5000?? I can record a video but its not the first issue

            The Chestplate of the Fortress, as well as GoTS, only reduces the chance to flank. A hero that does not naturally have flank and does not have any flanking gear will be unaffected by it.

            Kitty has a targeting mechanic to go after a hero with the lowest % health, meaning that hero can be in the back row. The Chestplate of the Fortress and GoTS do not affect this because it's not a flank mechanic.

            Therefore, if GoTS has the lowest % health, even in the back row, there's a good chance it would be hit. With the heavy taunt of Dalish Banner, this would basically equal the targeting provided based on GoTS being lowest % health, meaning Kitty would then have about a 50/50 chance of hitting either of them. If your Kitty is equipped with Arms of the Champion, that further adds to the targeting, but since both GoTS and Dalish Banner are Quick, it would be equally applied. Sounds like things are working just fine.

              Now clear. Thx for explain this, because I was still thinking that * Wounded Targeting going for already hitted target not total hp. Im apologize for my comments^^

                So there is no such mechanic in game like more likely to attack the target with (75% of 100% hp) correct?


                • #38
                  Very easy test: only 1 target mechanic involved * Wounded Targeting - more likely to attack the enemy with lowest % health.

                    To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:

                    What happens if I break the rules?
                    At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                    Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                    For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                    Posting Suggestions
                    In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                    1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                    Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                    2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                    3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                    4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                    5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                    6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                    7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                    In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
