Want to play a Drunken Master that falls on the floor after making an attack? Roll up a barbarian and max out Arcane Encumbrance, then enter your favourite watering hole and go to town!
Now bar brawls are even more entertaining as you fall boots over beard 30% of the time you make an attack! Just remember to give your brawling buddies a drunken /hug after the fight.
No it's not a bug worth fixing, it's far too funny, especially if you manage to bag the kill anyway . Though there might be a bit more to it as I seemed to go head over heels every initial attack with adrenalin, maybe each vicious proc is a chance for arcane encumberance to also proc? I don't think it was the adrenalin knock down effect. Either way it was funny to see me and my opponent fall over on the initial contact like they just clashed and butted heads knocking themselves out . The devs have also had a hand in this as the combat log mentioned something about the power of my own mind knocking me over before the "your arcane encumberance effect has been removed" popped up.
Now remember people, this thread is about having fun in a bar brawl, so no sabre rattling about balance! Well, no rattling about game balance, trip balance is quite on topic
