    Default Pay attention to the Sab Blast charge crits, I believe it's bugged.

    Almost every fight, I see 2 rotations (in a row) of Blast charge with no crits. That's 10 blast charges and 2 detonates not critting, and I have a 50% crit chance. Yes. 50%. Even with some type of crit cap, this is not blind luck and has been tested over 3 days with predictable results.

    The detonate crits could be bad luck, but the blast charges are not. It happens too often with the same predictable 2 rotations no crits.

    This could be related to my build and rotation which is designed for burst pvp, and Ive tested this in both in pvp and in pve.

    I ticketed it, but I'm posing here to see if anyone else has similar issues.

    As an experiment, try grabbing a load of spell crit/int gear, and see if it crits more.

    Why're you using blast charges, unless you're below 25 or w/e level you can gain the shrapnel charge buff?


    Edit: Also no problem with Spike/Shrapnel. Can't, and don't want to test Blast.

    The point isnt about why, its about a bug Ive found and want feedback. There's no doubt it's bugged with my current setup.

    But since you're curious, I use it to carpet bomb blast/stun a duo when appropriate.

    Here's a reason why, blast charge doesn't miss but shrapnel charge can. I did some testing on the practice dummy just now. I'm only level 42, so my miss rate is high against the level 50 dummy. This helps illustrate the point even more though.

    I used 5x blast charge in 3 different attempts, not once did the charges miss when detonated with detonate. I substituted shrapnel charges and the yellow text was full of misses. Most of the shrapnel charges missed on the nearby targets, as well.

    Also, I tried using the annihilation bomb with demolition specialist, the blast charges missed quite often when detonated with the annihilation bomb (once again I'm level 42 hitting a level 50 target). They never missed when detonated with detonate.

    So, why do charges have a chance to miss with annihilation bomb but not with detonate? Both abilities read, "This attack never misses, and cannot be parried, dodged, or blocked." Also, why do shrapnel charges have a chance to miss but blast charges do not?

    I sent a bug report in. This seems like a huge oversight.
