Trauma staff peril gain

Issue Description:
I got a good Trauma staff with 73-79% in every stat (see picture). The Warp Resistance is 73%. I of course tested it in training to see how awesome it is; but, to my dismay, it only took two fully charged - not holding the full charge - secondary attacks to fill my peril to about 95%. The peril gain on the secondary attack is 20,77% while on staves with similar Warp Resistance it’s around 13,5%. Compared to every other type of staff with similar Warp Resistance, it has 35% more peril gain. Now, I am not quite sure if this is a bug or intended, but either way: it makes the staff maybe getting off three fully charged attacks if you are so lucky to get 100% Warp Resistance (I do think tho it doesn’t matter if it’s 75% or 100% because one attack on 75% builds about 50% peril). Just seems silly to me and kinda makes the staff unplayable.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Have a Trauma staff with similar stats as in the picture.
  2. In training, fully charge a secondary attack and attack at the charge’s peak.
  3. Do step 2 again.
  4. Pay attention to peril. For me, it was at about 93-95%

@FatsharkQuickpaw I saw you tagged this as not a bug. Good to know! :slightly_smiling_face: I hope the team takes into consideration the high peril gain on the staff when balancing the game. I see good use in a staff with high peril gain, but this much makes the staff purely a peril twig. 3-4 charged secondary attacks on around 75% warp res would be more acceptable, especially when considering that Voidstrike has both higher aoe and lower peril gain.


If it helps, I believe the Void Strike Staff might actually be bugged and is costing too little peril! But yes, I understand your frustration, I very much suggest you open up a thread in the Gameplay Feedback section so that it gets looked at by the appropriate eyes. Our devs lurk there a lot, it’s the best way to get noticed for things like this.


I shall! Thank you for taking the time and sorry for posting this wrongly, I know you guys have a lot on your hands.


So, I just bought a 23% warp resistance Trauma staff. It builds the exact same amount as the 73% I have. Just saying. There’s something wrong with the warp res on the Trauma staff.

Could you post the stats of this low warp resistance staff real quick?

4h late. Hope it was fast enough.
