    Default expose weakness bug

    expose weakness currently only adds damage to physical attacks, but non physical attacks remove a stack of the debuff without recieving extra damage

    Can't confirm, I'm constantly strafing and spamming swift shot (so no auto attacks or bleed ticks) and it's only removing 1 expose stack even when both poisons proc at the same time. I don't believe this is a bug either; the tooltip mentions that it increases damage taken by x from the rogues physical attacks and bleeds

    While testing this I think I might have found a real bug though, expose is dropping 3 charges every time serrated ticks without giving it 3 exposed bonus dmg amounts. Going to do some parses would be nice if someone else could test this out also.

    To the OP. I tested with manual application expose weakness and fiery spike and twilight force from range. Fiery spike and twilight force did not remove stacks so I can't confirm that bug.

    To Adnoz. I tested with spamming fiery spike from range to get 3 stacks of serrated blades rolling, then applied expose weakness manually and saw that each serrated blades proc was removing 3 from the stack while only giving the damage bonus of one. I have been wondering why the expose weakness stacks run out so quickly but that explains it, a few crits and they are all gone.

    Yep definitely not getting 3x exposed bonus.
    Max serrated blades without expose: 209 (only happened once in a 7minute parse)
    Max serrated blades with expose: 287 (only happened once in a 10minute parse)
    My expose with IFP active was giving 79damage bonus, and it is definitely removing 3 stacks per tick. Fix plz trion~!

    Non phys attacks are not removing stacks of it. You are getting auto attacks or serrated blades which is doing it.

    Expose weakness never will increase damage of non phys attacks.

    Serrated Blades removes up to 3 stacks of Expose Weakness per tick.


    However many stacks of Serrated = How many stacks it takes off.

    Well, that stinks, they should change it so it gets the benefit of 3 expose charges or only have it consume 1 charge, but of course that would boost our dps, can't have that can we?

    yeah no matter how it worked out, I think it would end up being a DPS boost,
    higher count FBs inbetween reapplies, because expose would not be getting removed as fast, or another 150-250 per tick dps add for each of the other two that are not getting counted in.

    would be nice to have it fixed which ever way they say is the correct function of the ability, because right now, it is clear that all it is doing is consuming the counts, and adding nothing besides for the one tick

    Definitely needs fixed, this would be a significant DPS boost if we got the full benefit from expose, every time we crit in a raid we're losing exposedmg*2 damage.

    That explains a lot. I was wondering why EW drops off so quickly. Great catch, hopefully Trion will fix it, since it is clearly a bug.
