I got two red numbers when I hit the ground after a fall, but I think I bounced off the slope just before the ground (bypassing the stairs from the marketplace gate down to the WW entrance). Don't know if that's new update behavior/bug or not. I tried various sliding down slops to avoid damage and sometimes got damage (just one number) where I think before I wouldn't, but then elsewhere slope-sliding worked just fine, and I never got two damage numbers again either. *shrug* Just something to look at maybe, if you know the previous behavior for sure. :)

I hate to say this, but that may be correct behavior now. Deff worth asking about.

It always struck me as odd I could go sliding super freaking fast and not take damage at all, but jumping and I always took damage even if it was for a smaller distance.

Hopefully this is a result of the new physics engine.....can't wait to test out Coal. Chamber :)

Coal chamber and 45 degree bouncing BS. Which you can run into the same issues in the Dreaming Dark solo.

Yeah, if it weren't for the note on backend physics changes I would have just assumed I was screwing up on the sliding. I could still slide other slopes without damage, but some of other slopes I can't really tell if what I did would have produced damage before or not, or if I just didn't do it right.

There is a couple of spots in the Giant's Vault I want to check as well..

Still there :(

New physics engine really gave me hope for some of the quests where they tried making ddo a platform game...that hope is now dashed.
