The Mass Affliction DoT cast by the Corruptor is bugged in that it is dealing more damage than intended after the Corruptor is dead. Currently, this is to be fixed in Game Update 2.4.2.

Uh ... the MASS AFFLICTION cast by the Corruptors is bugged?

We have been discussing the AFFLICTION cast by the Guardians of the Fortress with parsers that show it is ticking more in 8-MAN STORY MODE than it is in 8-man Hard Mode or 16-man Story Mode.

The mass affliction is interruptable and cleansable.

Please confirm as I am hoping you made a typo.
Good. Bad. I'm the twi'lek with the saber.

While this might also be true, this isn't the issue we are having.

Yeah. If this is true, it went unnoticed by my guild. Wave 7, though, that comes out and kicks you square in the bum and then takes your lunch money all while making fun of your sister.

Correct.. It's NOT the corrupters, but I think they are saying the bug on the GUARDIANS is happening AFTER the corrupters are dead.

Unless I'm reading it wrong. The Guardians as per the LOG FILE are the issue with the "Affliction" DOT not the "Afflict" from Mass Affliction cast by the corrupters.

BIOWARE? Can you confirm? Cause the DOT is from the Guardians and NOT the Corruptors cast.

Amber-

Can you CLARIFY please? Mass Affliction DoT cast by the Corruptor is bugged

It's not them.. it's the Guardians. (In the log files at least) Would be nice to do this in 8 man again with PUG's since 16 man is the only "Quick / Easy" way thru the fight. LOL

Amber that is not the same issue we are talking about. The combat logs posted are about the uninterruptibe, unclensable AFFLICTION the Guardians cast.

Thanks for the follow up posts, folks, and I'm sorry that my post was unclear! It looks like it was cut short, and I didn't notice before moving on. However, I'd intended to both let you know that there is actually an issue with Corruptor damage during this encounter that we've locked down as well as to tell you the following:

The bug where the Guardian of the Fortress Affliction ability is causing WAY too much damage per tick is fixed in Game Update 2.4.1, which is intended to be the very next patch!

Again, my apologies for not being more careful! It was totally not my intention to troll you guys - that's something better left for Mr. Musco. >.<

(And on a only-semi-related note, we're looking into some issues with creating and editing posts on the Forums.)

Excellent news.

Thank you for getting back to us.

Now, for the others that have posted here (and elsewhere): have you seen this issue with the mass affliction? My guild didn't (but that obviously means nothing to anyone but us).
