Shrug it off and Vigorous shouts
Posted 27 July 2012 - 03:58 PM
The long answer might be no, don't be stupid.
But if you took the trait Shrug It Off (which activates Shake it Off every 30 seconds, when you have a condition on you) would this also include the heal from Vigorous Shout?
What I am asking is, does it just remove a condition and break stun. Or does it remove a condition, break stun AND trigger Vigorous Shout?
The reason I ask is someone might have a difinitive answer and it could be the difference between a good trait and an amazing trait.

Exactly. On a lot of builds I use I run Throw Bolas and the two 25 second shouts. I'd take Shrug it Off with these as it'd give me another heal (1.2k + depending on healing), however, if it doesn't I'd swap out Throw Bolas with Fear Me and take Lung Capacity.
Unless we hear from somebody that tested it out in BWE3 I'm not sure we'll get an answer to this until launch. Then again, they might change it either way before launch too!

Agreed, it will be incredibly useful if it removes a condition and gives a heal. I'd take it above Lung Capacity I think.
However, this sounds very interesting. The German translation saying that makes me think they want it to just remove a condition.

So far the traits in the defense line that give you Balanced Stance/Endure Pain have an ICD which is triggered when you use the ability. So unless you were to wait for Shrug it Off to fire every time before using your shout (and unlike the stances theres no icon to make it easily noticeable) you are likely going to put it on ICD all the time and it won't actually fire.
That is, assuming it has the same issue.

This is not true. It was a mistaken conclusion at the time, and we've since pointed out that this is not the case.

Oh? I must've missed that one then, my bad . The last video I saw with the traits being used showed them not working if the ability had recently been activated.

Yeah I saw the video Moldran posted about that a while back.
Have they fixed it now?

The trait triggers, whenever you get CCed, regardless of the fact if you are immune to that CC. Imagine it didn't go off for a moment, just because you got 1s of stability left on you, and you get hit by a knockback 1 second later. You'd probably be pissed, so that's why, in order to make it more reliable, it has to work that way.
The trait has nothing to do with the utility either. If you have the utility buff on you and you proc the trait, they will overlap, because stability is not meant to stack in anyway (neither duration, nor intensity obviously).

When Shake it Off triggers it heals for about 1.1k but at the moment doesn't take into account healing (with healing in the build I had Shake it Off on my utility bar healed for 1.8k)
