Helm of Excellence blocks grenade damage
« on: September 19, 2011, 07:17:05 PM »
I was told from a player on our server that the Helm of Excellence doesn't only block headshots. If the grenade is quite near to a person, or the person steps directly on the grenade and looks down (like holding the head towards the nade) wearing a Helm of Excellence the damage from the grenade is absorbed/blocked.
I didn't test or reproduce it myself but I trust in that player.
I can make a replay, if necessary.

(It sounds like a cool idea for a new item though ;) "Flaming Kevlar", absorbing grenade damage, counteritem for the "Flaming Gloves of Warmth" and Orcish Critnades)


Regards

well the helm is suppose to protect any head damage. if the game decides to damage with location "head" then its fine for the helm to block it.

So it's not a bug, it's a feature? ;)

How about the idea, to differentiate between weapon and grenade damage and make the Helm only block weapon damage, the "real" headshots, and create another item to block grenade damage?
