WvW - Pot of Burning Oil bug

During the recent siege changes, the pot of burning oil was updated to provide a large amount of damage reduction as well as "permanent" stability to the user. However, there was/is a critical bug that scourge shade fears would still knock you off the pot, which removes the damage reduction, leading to instant melting death, just like before. This still hasn't been fixed and basically negates the oil pot improvements. Please fix this bug!


  • When stability is corrupted it flips into fear, sounds like its intentional mechanics. Scourage/necro in general has a lot of corruption of boons but if you notice it'll always be fear that interrupts as its not landing through stab but being flipped into fear from stab. See list of boon corruptions for details.

    That's right, I forgot that's what is happening. It still can't possibly be intentional - the purpose of the changes was to allow the pots to be somewhat useful. In order for them to be useful you have to be able to stay on them and not die instantly. This keeps us right where we were before the changes. Any semi-organized group is going to have some necros or other access to ranged boon corrupt skills.

    If that is not intended then they should have went with a breakbar instead.
