Treasure Hunter ProcsFollow

Hey everyone,

Had something happen to me for the first time with TH procs. Just as a note I have TH6 with base + gear (working on it!). As an additional note, I had recently changed my TH macro to include swapping in my Thief Knife. I was previously only swapping hands & feet while off-handing the Thief Knife full-time (most Aby farming I do I am only there to add TH). Since I was duoing I wanted to add more DPS this go round.

Anyway, I was duoing with a BLU on Nahn in Aby L and during our 4th fight I saw a proc for TH that said it had raised to 7 (nothing new about that). Shortly after it proc'd again only it said it raised to 4 (and subsequently 5 before he died). Shouldn't the proc 7 stick as a base? I mean if swapping gear/weapons drops your TH lower than a previous proc, then we will have to keep all TH gear/weapons on all the time. I didn't lose hate at any point, didn't die, didn't even move out of range.

Anyone else see this happen? Anything I might have missed? Thanks in advance.

That sounds like some glitch, because as someone that will start a fight with full TH on then swap to normal melee gear, I've never seen a Treasure Hunter effect message start out high like that and then drop down to a lower number during a later Treasure Hunter message. The first message I'd get would always be one higher than my overall TH level, and any subsequent messages (without my TH gear on) would be higher than the previous ones (I.E. First message would be 8, next would be 9, etc.)

Do you happen to have screenshots of the battle log?

Yeah, I've never seen that occur before unless the mob went passive. Not sure what happened there, but I wouldn't pay it much heed unless you notice it happening again.

I don't have the battle log (sorry on Xbox). I did go back and look at the log right after the fight and didn't see anything that would explain the 7 to 4 drop. I too have had countless aby parties as THF and never seen it go down. It has always proce'd and based at 7 (one up from my gear/thf base of 6). I've had it go as high as 11 and that was all the while swapping in/out TH gear. Hope it was a one time glitch.

ps: He never went passive as there were 2 of us hitting him the entire time.
