    Default "immune", stop this!

    I'm a big problem and this problem is making me lose heart in the game. I am a person who does not like making mistakes, and to, in the last week this is happening constantly.

    I'm tanking, trying to generate agro. I know some are better to build generating threat. But every time, is giving the message "IMMUNE". Trion, what is it! I'm tired of wrong, the worse it when the error is not mine! Please do not be stupid, and get it this soon, it's getting unbearable play that game of yours!

    In b4 flames.

    I am going to assume the poster's native language is not English. Please do not flame, discuss the problem as this is the only way to hope to change or solve in game mechanics.

    My best guess: diminishing returns on taunts?

    Stun a boss - immune
    Slow down a boss - immune

    Bosses are usually immune to some effects to prevent exploiting or easy kills - it's normal and these things are in every game.

    P.S.
    Have you ever seen a ghost bleeding? xD

    Lately I have had an issue, where I tried to use the paladin charge on a ranom mob. But instead of flying over and smacking it, I got the 'immune' message, the skill went on cd, and I didn't move.

    The charge has a build in snare, and I can sorta get if the mobs was immune to that, but how it can be immune to me running-really-fast and hitting it, I dont get.

    Besides, this happens pretty random (and rarely thank God) on normal mobs, so it seems to me that there might a tiny bug hidden somewhere.

    Could it be an issue with the game showing the "Immune" message instead of "Resisted"?

    In WoW (sorry to use that game as comparison but it is a valid point), all mobs/NPCs maintained at least a 1% chance of resistance to an attack. Could this also be an issue and it's simply a wrong message?

    Yeah, designers take the easy way out and simply void most useful CC and other skills rather than have to work on fight designs that allow for them.

    I would think that Immune messages would mean that its completely Immune to what ever it is you are attempting to attack it with, while a RESISTED message would mean that there is a chance you could land your attack's effect on the mob.



    I think the developers have added challenges to Boss Mobs that include making them Immune to certain abilities which in turn makes you have to figure out a different way to come at the situation.

    It is one aspect of keeping a games content somewhat fresh compared to the same vanilla encounters over and over.

    This actually is a tool thats used in a lot of games.

    All bosses are immune to Taunt skills but actually are not! Just simply is immune, so the immune system, when using a skill agro.
