Toughness not blocking damage

We kindly ask that you complete the questions below. With this information, we can add it to our database for investigation.

Issue Description:
Even at full strength, even the weakest pox walker can hit you once, you get the “broken shield” noise/visual effect and take one damage. This of course impacts the attempts to get the penance “take no damage during a mission”. But also misleads you to think your shield/toughness is gone.

Steps to Reproduce:
[Please add the steps that can help our QA department in reproducing the issue. For example:]

  1. Noticed this on Ogryn, not sure if it’s all classes.
  2. Get hit by any mob with full or non-empty toughness. You get the broken toughness effect and take damage, usually 1 point. Toughness will still be above 0.
