Combination Blow, Lethal Current, and Arc 3.0 Hunter
I have been attempting solo flawless duality dungeon for the past 2 days on my Arc Hunter. Ever since beginning this endeavor, I have noticed a couple of things about Arc 3.0 Hunter that bother me. These problems are not unique to the Duality Dungeon, however, they appear most apparent to me when attempting to do such a thing.
On Arc 3.0 Hunter, if you use both combination blow and Lethal Current, which basically you need to do to run melee damage build with Liar's Handshake, I have noticed that after dodging, you are given the Lethal Current buff, which is still working as intended, but if you hit an enemy with your charged combination blow while you have Lethal Current, and the combination blow doesn't kill them but the Lethal Current aftershock does, it does not count as a combination blow kill, thus not refreshing combination blow timer, not providing health, and also not increasing the stack of combination blow if it is less than three. As provide an example, during the Nightmare of Gahlran encounter, if you punch one of the psions while you have no stacks of combination blow, and also have lethal current active, your punch will not kill the psion, and then the psion will get the lethal current aftershock, killing them, not activating any of the perks of combination blow. If this was to be adjusted, I would hope that if the Lethal Current kills an enemy, it counts as a combination blow, consuming the ability energy, providing health, granting a stack of combination blow, and resetting the combination blow timer.
This is most likely not a bug, but something I want changed to make chaining combination blows easier.
While one could just say "just go punch another enemy to get the combination blow", and that would work. Until combination blow just doesn't work too. During the Caiatl encounter it would seem as though the combination blow also breaks, being that when I kill an enemy with combination blow, I do not get a stack of combination blow, I do not get healing, and I do not get a reset on combination blow timer (If I can even get a stack). This typically happens after the first damage phase on Caiatl, and makes it impossible to continue using the build I am using.
With the most recent hotfix, 126.96.36.199, the issue of killing an enemy, WITH combination blow, and the effects not triggering, seems to have been fixed. Thank you.
I would still like to see lethal current be able to trigger combination blow, but I won't shed any tears if it doesn't happen.
