Grand regent BROKEN?

Postby DizzyHalfgear » Wed Oct 10, 2012 6:37 pm

I don't know where else to post this. There doesn't seem to be a bug forum....

How come after fight the regent for like fifteen minutes. Defeating him. When the EARTH NPC IS SPAWNING....I get 1 shot and die...

WTF? Can someone please explain to me...I have done with many characters...

Some people call this the "grand regent death bug". I personally think it may be working as intended, and the corrupted guardian of mana explodes, dealing damage and killing you if you're close. So stay away from it if its going through some kinda convulsion.

I've done it a million times and nothing has happened...and I wasn't standing hear him.

How do I get my CHARACTER BACK? I literally just lost so many hours to something broken? Forget it.

There's something you can do to mess with the files to restore your character. I don't know how exactly, but its possible and common-knowledge. You should look into it, if you died to a bug. Try forum search?

Go to the saves folder in your My Documents/My Games directory and you'll see some .svb and .restore files with your character name on them. You need to change the .restore file extension into .svb and you'll have your character back but you may have lost about 30 minutes of progress.

I actually prefer playing this way. Hardcore penalty is too harsh with all the random 1-shot stuff, but non-hardcore penalty for death is nothing.

So I did some testing, and to be honest, I am leaning towards this NOT being a bug.

I believe if you are not near the NPC as is he is de-cursing you are meant to die.

I could be wrong, but it seems intended.

I highly doubt it's intended.

Heh, does anyone know if Runic has ever admitted it's a bug? Or have they been completely silent about it? If it's the latter, it could be intended and they don't want to spoil it by telling us...

Not sure if this has been reported in another thread, but here goes.

Spoiler: show
This seems to be intended, the Grand Regent have a Death Kill skill which seems to be triggered when he dies, and it has a range of 5000 and makes 20000% weapon damage.
I'm not sure why this doesn't always happen though.

I have not come across this bug so far. I have beaten the Regent twice in VHC mode. Is this something that happens more on elite, or is it on all difficulties?

This happened to me as well. I think it automatically does enough damage to kill your character as I had stacked my health pretty high by that point and took 2000+ damage.

I think it might depend on where you kill regent - I killed him very close to the area the corrupted guardian dies at, and was checking out the loot so I didn't even see it, just suddenly died. On my other character I killed regent farther away, and I guess safely looted him oblivious to the guardian.

I assume it's intended, unfair as it might be - you'd really need specific knowledge of the encounter to avoid it.

I just beat the Regent again with a VHC engineer - After reading this thread I avoided standing next to the Regent while the Guardian was appearing, and everything was fine!

Although I have personally never gotten killed by this glitch, so I guess I have been lucky so far :mrgreen:
