    Title: Bear can damage me but I can't damage it
    Reproduction Rate:100%
    Blocker?
    Details:Using terrain to find spots where 1-way damage was possible. Attacked bear with fire arrow and then jumped on rocks. In some spots, my fire arrow was still doing 0 damage due to "out of reach, dealing no damage" but the bear was still able to do damage to me.

    What you are observing is likely the deliberate slight delay before triggering/untriggering the "out of reach" state. If there's a spot where you can stay put and the npc can damage you but you cannot damage them then that should not be occurring.

    How is this related to the taming issue here in the same zone?

    I like the look of this. Get off the rocks and tame them properly! :D

    @Undone Guessing the unicorns using Rock Throw is intentional - but can the rock be made sparkly or leave a glitter trail or something? :p

    Which issue are you referring to? Is this a previous bug?

    Yes this is a special case where we plan on having boss mobs have a special attack for when they cannot reach you. The rock throw was just a prototype (stolen from the Troll) and may get removed - but LB thought it was awesome so it might stay :shrug:

    If standing on rocks and taming the obsidian destroyer while it is just staring at you is a bug then yes its a bug. Years ago ive reported this same situation before and spots have been fixed but not all. I was assuming this would be part of the tell me if ur still finding stuff thing that was asked for?

    As it is now in the qa I can nuke it jump on the rock and tame it safely.

    No that's good information. I'll have to dig into taming to prevent that from happening. I'm also exploring making the creature leash after a set amount of time if you are out of reach for too long --> which would be a bandaid but help fix the problem.

    If they leash they get accelerated health regen which would make it difficult to tame since you have to beat them down.

    Just make the bears jump too! And spiders climb. And all humanoids jump. Instead of removing terrain that can be exploited (only in this game, it is called strategy elsewhere), make the mobs behave more like they should. @Undone Can things jump in EP2? Please?
