Enemies broken fire damage

4

For a long time now the fire damage of enemies has been completely broken, especially on higher level missions. The damage and tick rate is so insane that it doesnt matter what defenses you have what health, what defensive perks/items/passives, the damage just completely melts you. And most importantly compared to all other damage from enemies its completely off the charts, so far so that it made me and others completely avoid playing high level missions with flame thrower enemies. Even using a Rosarius force field only helps for a moment, when its on CD you die anyways.

The damage and/or tick rate needs a complete rebalance, its broken beyond belief.

Here a video showcase of how ridiculous it really is.

Ah. I see. Hidden DoTs. This is fatal, of course. Then I'll wait until you figure out why there's more DoT damage in there than just the fire damage itself, which with good fire resistance isn't nearly as devastating as it is now, and you've had time to bring this "damage feature" back to normal.

Megapull already commented your post on the Reddit forum but I can also confirm that our team is checking the issue. AFAIK there are some hidden DoTs here which are totally irrational. We are on it!

You are absolutely right about this. There is no such defect in other types of damage. As you stated, even though I have 80% damage reduction and nearly 50% heat resistance, whatever the source of the fire damage is, it causes me to die instantly. In this regard, the producers definitely need to review the situation.

I've wondered why I regularly fail 95th missions with my level 90 non-seasonal melee assassin when an enemy attacks me with a flamethrower or I'm on fire after killing him and so don't need to continue at all in the final missions of a Void Crusade. Now I know. The enemy fire damage is way too high and kills me instantly. That alone takes away any motivation to keep playing what is actually a damn good game because even at level 100, enemy fire damage will probably kill me instantly, no matter how good my gear, how appropriate my perks and passives, and everything else is. Until this is properly balanced and you have a chance to succeed in end-game leveling, it doesn't make sense to keep playing.  Even building a ranged fighter makes no sense anymore, because he fights mainly on single damage since he also constantly gets into melee combat and has no chance of survival, let alone success in that fire damage like it is now. Please devs fix it as soon as possible.
