Beguiler Soul Whip not dealing Full Damage vs. Sneak Attack Targets


Question

Description:

Mindstalker (Beguiler Cipher + Debonaire Rogue) attacks a target afflicted with charm via Whisper of Treason. Sneak Attack's +30% damage successfully applies, since the target was affected by the charm affliction, but Soul Whip only applies its +10% damage, instead of the +20% that Beguilers should deal when attacking Sneak Attack-able targets.

 

Steps to Reproduce the Issue:

1. Afflict an enemy with Whispers of Treason on a Beguiler/Debonaire Mindstalker

2. Crit the charmed target with a basic attack

3. Confirm that Sneak Attack applied, since the target was afflicted by a mind affliction (charm) for +30%

4. Confirm that, despite the target being sneak attacked, Soul Whip only applied a +10% damage bonus

 

Attached screenshot shows damage applied by Soul Whip only applied +10%, despite Sneak Attack also being present on the attack at +30%.

note: devs ain't coming back to check on bugs, it's just us here.

 

uh oh - have you done this on a plain beguiler? has this always been bugged and we've never noticed?

So after more testing, it seems like Beguilers erroneously suffer from reduced Soul Whip damage when the Sneak Attack is being granted by either:

- An attack out of stealth or invisibility

or

- When the affliction "activating" Sneak Attack is a Charm Spell, making the victim a friendly target

 

That's a shame to hear about the devs. Is PoE 2 effectively no longer supported by Obsidian?

sorry for late response - but yeah, 5.0 was their last hurrah. they said they'd only be back for critical bugs, but i don't know what would qualify as "critical" (II had issues with macOS and catalina and got no response and had to figure something out myself).
