    1. Title: Rend not doing DOT damage
    2. Reproduction Rate: 100%
    3. Blocker? No
    4. Details: The skeletons in the Spectral Mines are taking 0 damage over time from rend. They are green to me and puny ants to scrape off my boots, so there is no logical reason that this sword skill has no effect. I've done this repeatedly and they always take 0 damage when rend tics.
    5. Steps to Reproduce: Go to the mines, rend a skele.

    @aseltine, undead are immune to rend.

    This is actually by design. Undead have an immunity to rend. I'm sorry for the confusion on that.

    @Lexie Thanks, but this defies logic and the definition of the word rend.
    rend
    rend/
    verb

    1. tear (something) into two or more pieces.
      "snapping teeth that would rend human flesh to shreds"
      synonyms: tear/rip apart, tear/rip in two, split, rupture, sever;
    Arguably having chunks TORN off into multiple pieces should be MORE damaging to undead than having a sword thrust into you..?

    If the skill was "Bleed" yeah sure undead not being impacted makes sense, but there is nothing about REND that undead would be any more immune to than every other sword, polearm, etc skill would be.
