Stagger duration is too low

Duplicated from Patch notes thread.

Judging by this video:
(Bulwark talent)

stagger duration is ~1 second? Seems pretty low for me, it is not working with 2h hammer heavy attacks, stagger wears off before you land second strike:

As you can see in second half of the video even Bulwark duration in 2 seconds is barely enough:

Totally true. I have the same impression. Good analysis.

I believe the stagger is implemented so your party can take advantage of the damage bonus. My problem is staggered enemies fall back behind a press of new fresh enemies so capitalising on stagger seems often impossible for anyone let alone yourself.


That is only the medium stagger animation for the Chaos warrior, you need a lot of buffs to reach the heavy stagger which is over two seconds on a Chaos warrior.

Source? I based assumption on stagger duration on first video, where stagger is clearly strong, albeit its duration is clearly less than 2 seconds.

This is the heavy stagger animation for chaos warriors
In general every enemy has a light, medium and heavy stagger animation and if you want to heavy stagger CW you probably are going to need opportunist and some other power boost.
