    Default Sabo Bomb/Charges not affected by hit??

    So fresh 60 and have about 215 hit atm as I grind out the infinity stones. Yesterday I was being carried in a raid rift and was playing tactician.

    my dps would go something like this:

    dodge
    dodge
    dodge
    dodge
    1800
    dodge
    dodge
    dodge

    So i switch to Sab
    and I go all like
    BOOM take that MOFO, eat my 215 hit and pull like 5K dps ST and upwards of 20K on AE.

    Is bombs/charges not affected by hit? I mean granted, I am sure if I was 400+ hit, I would be doing more damage but it seems like this might be a bug. anyone?

    I remember back then during the sab revamp that bombs and charges can't miss so I guess that perk passed over.

    Seems charges can't miss, everything else can miss. I think individual charge ticks can miss.

    What surely let's you keep somewhat decent damage is the fact that some of your bombs are going to hit, which keeps High Explosives running.

    Yes there was an explicit patch note quite some time back that said sab charges are unable to be dodged/parried. Detonate and Bombs still can be dodged/parried. So despite charges not needing hit, a Sab will have pretty nasty DPS even so, because no bombs to detonate easily/add to the aoe damage.

    bombs were not dodged, nor charges, nor detonate or any tick from caltrop.

    I'll confirm again tonight.
