View Full Version : U13 Epic items and Damage Reduction (Minor issue)

The U13 Epic items do not possess the 'Epic' damage flag. As such they probably do not bypass Paragon Kobold DR. I believe items with +6 enhancement bonuses are supposed to have this flag.

This issue is not resolved by putting a +7 augment in (should that be your desired augment for the item).

Will /bug this soon.


Edit: Believed to be WAI by several people that have responded, and not a major issue even if it is not. Also changing this might cause major issues in Hound of Xoriat, so probably best to leave it. Requesting thread lock as it is now confirmed to be WAI.

As the developers have explicitly announced on more than one occasion, that is not how DDO is supposed to work.

This is the case with all epic weapons.

For example: Epic Sword of Shadow, Epic Antique Greataxe, and Epic Chaosblade do not bypass Paragon Kobold DR.

It's a design decision rather than a bug, otherwise we would have found exceptions instead of every single epic weapon acting like this. Paragon Kobold DR can be considered unbypassable like Shroud portals for all intents and purposes.

Looking at it from the other direction, my monk is very happy that his DR isn't automatically bypassed by trash in every epic quest and raid.

Working as intended.
