[Bug?] One Stands Alone - +20 damage intended, or supposed to be +20%?

Question

There's been some discussion of this talent on the gen discussion forum, but I don't believe I've ever seen any official dev word on if this talent is working as intended. Is OSA really supposed to provide an integer +20 damage bonus? Or is it supposed to be (like the recently fixed Ranger mark ability) +20% of base weapon damage, in a similar manner to literally every other damage modifier in the game save the monk fists? It seems really strange for this ability to break the mold. Would love some dev feedback on this, even just a "It's intended" or "It's a bug".

Bump. Would really like to know if this is intentional or a bug. There are no other abilities in the game (to my knowledge) that grant a flat integer damage bonus other than the Monk's fists, and +20 damage is ludicrously overpowered (not to mention heavily favors DW vs 2H)... the current implementation of this ability just doesn't make sense.

It is 100% bug. The added damage is multiplied by everything like savage attack and 2h mastery, crits ect. Also retaliate with this talent will deal 60-70 base damage... Definitely not intended.

If that's the case... it would be nice if they'd fix it. :p

 

Pretty glaring issue for Barbarian players. Pick this talent or be stupid. I'm stupid - but I don't want to be stupid.

Yep, this game has way too many bugs. My 3rd playthro and I need to quit again because this game became trivial and not fun at all. I know the story so theres no point on keep playing.

Bump for visibility post-1.04. Would really love to see a fix for this or at least some acknowledgement. Barbarian is one of the funnest classes (IMO) but is utterly broken right now due to this talent.

That's great news KTran. Thanks.

 

edit: Maybe you can also make an update the text of the ability. "Grants a melee damage bonus when the barbaria..." is not exactly clear with respect to the mechanics: +20% dmg.

managed to do some tests on this .. It adds precisely 26.6 damage per hit .. Not 20 .

 

http://forums.obsidian.net/topic/78239-abilities-various-other-damage-related-mechanics-revealed/?do=findComment&comment=1671709

 

It looks like it's scaling with might. 20*1.33=26.6. Not scaling with blooded is odd though.

 

I seriously doubt it scales with anything .. I will test again when I get the chance (10+ hours) with 50 / 100 might ..
