    Default Cannot See Physical Damage when Attacking

    As per the title, only add-on effect damage, bursts, etc are showing visually. Everything just shows as 1-9 damage (font of number gets physically bigger when something is vulnerable or a crit but then it just does like 3-9 damage). Testing with Melee and Ranged damage on separate characters.

    Tried resetting display and logging in and out and quitting client. Happens consistently.

    Combat log reveals full damage being dealt, however.

    The 1-9's you are seeing are just the "Ones" column of the actual damage number. That is, if you just hit for 39, you're seeing the 9. If you just hit for 1,342 you're seeing the 2. This is a known Mac client issue, promised to be fixed, but who knows when.

    It's only showing the most significant digit, i.e. 455 in damage would show a 4 only.
    I don't know that the problem has been acknowledged, but I can't imagine they don't know about it. It has been reported endlessly. One of the game play options, I forget which one, lets you see damage as 'x+x+x' and that works. For some reason the setting hasn't been persisting for me. I have to keep turning it back on. I don't bother with it much anymore.

    It affects other areas of the game too. Negative hitpoints always show -1 in players status bars. I can't tell if others are unconscious or dead because the status does not change to dead right away. I end up trying to heal dead people a lot.

    The biggest problem by far, at the moment, is that after a while playing, dungeons will get solid walls in otherwise clear passages that you cannot see or target through. You can run through them, but you have no idea what's on the other side generally. The only way I have found to fix the problem is to restart the client. If I am soloing that also involves disconnecting the network first so that I am not booted from the dungeon.

    There were a few fixes made a while back that got rid of some really annoying problems, but there haven't been any obvious fixes recently except when they broke the Mac client during a recent patch.

    At the moment, it does not even seem possible to download the client directly from Turbine. It has been that way for a while. It's not a good sign.

    Yeah well I took a 5 month break. Came back to look at new enhancements and see whats up. All of my equipment is out of date by a mile (+11 Stat Items!?!?! +5 Spell Focus?!?1 +9 Artifact Damage like the Dream Visor?!?!).

    So, no matter how cool the new enhancements are (although it seems like they blocked out a lot of the highest tiers from different prestiges meaning you're still really pigeonholed into mostly using the same old prestige classes and abilities), I have to completely re-gear and buy the new expansion. Even though the named items in the new expansion look terribad.

    On top of that, I was excited to try and use the Mac client. I had no problem downloading and updating it from Steam. To save on overhead, I just run the app directly without Steam not that I have it.

    2/3rds of my guild is inactive. I looked on the Who tab last night on Khyber and there were 5 level 28 characters and about 8 level 27's.

    What has happened to this game? Does Turbine even know what they've done?

    If anyone knows which option this is I'd appreciate it.

    I'll look for it myself of course too

    Under UI Settings, two options above the second set of color options ("Name Option: NPCs"), is the option "Show damage values in 'n+n+n' format'. this is the option you want.

    Default Bug Report to Devs

    ...

    The biggest problem by far, at the moment, is that after a while playing, dungeons will get solid walls in otherwise clear passages that you cannot see or target through. You can run through them, but you have no idea what's on the other side generally. The only way I have found to fix the problem is to restart the client. If I am soloing that also involves disconnecting the network first so that I am not booted from the dungeon.

    I have both of these bugs for the Mac OS client which Katie mentioned above:

    1. Damage does not display correctly. Only a single digit of damage is shown - being the most significant digit.

    2. Dungeons get solid blue/grey walls in clear passages. This bug has occurred in Offering of Blood and Jungle of Khyber quests.


    Can the devs please provide a fix for these?

    For #1, the work around is as stated above, check the box that says Show damage values in n+n+n format.

    #2 is quite annoying, it happens to me whenever I've played longer than about an hour and a half. I can Command-Q out, then restart the game, that puts me back where I was (but causes me to lose the map I've revealed so far, so not good for complicated areas you don't know yet) and cures it for another hour and a half. But it's better than roaming around without being able to see what you're doing.

    no, turbine seems totally out of it, EE's are out of wonk, the masses are rioting over the mess the last so called expansion caused. Don't buy it(not yet anyway), it's basically 2 normal packs stacked together, you can easily do without, they'll go on sale one day.
    Focus on Thunderholme and Haunted halls for "so called end game"

    We have had many updates since these bugs were first brought to the Devs attention. As a paying customer i feel this really should be sorted by now, thanks
