The change to the Orc racial 'Swift' is bugged

From the additional patch notes :
Swift: This Orc passive now also causes charge attacks to deal 2% (Rank I) 4% (Rank II) and 6% (Rank III) more damage.

But my orc character is Rank III in the skill and it says I have only 2% increase damage.

Anybody else have this bug ? I suspect a tooltip error and I cannot test it further (cause I would need to respec and that's a lot of gold for a tiny little bug :p )

@ZOS_GinaBruno‌ can you please take a look ? And add it to the knwown issues of course.

Thanks in advance.

    And what does "Charge attacks" mean ? is it the heavy attack, or the different 'charge' skills (in the S&S and 2H skill lines ?) I think it's the heavy attack but can we please have some clarification ?

    Thanks @niocwy, checking on the issue you called out. As far as the charge attack, it's referring to Critical Charge, Shield Charge, and Focused Charge.

    I can confirm that my Orc shows only 2% at Rank 3 currently.

    I am an orc, uses charge. Not a complain or anything but what the heck did we needed a buff for? :-p (No need to answer, focus elsewhere).

    Charge works fine for orcs! Now I will be called OP when I charge down silly elfs!

    Well, I won't spit on a little buff ! Also, it's far from being OP (and previous orc buffs were kinda sub-par anyway) so I guess there won't be a balance problem.

    I wasn't spitting dude :-)

    I might sound a bit dumb, but I do like balance, even if it "nerfs" me. Not a big thing, but I got a bit surprised that's all.

    So, am I correct in assuming that the Orc Racial ability "Swift" does NOT work for the Nightblade's Teleport Strike (Ambush/Lotus Fan)?

    Yes, you are correct.

    Spoiler:

    3 things to reduce stamina/magicka imbalance :
    - Use magicka to block abilities costing magicka, instead of stamina.
    - Add % damage reduction to heavy armor.
    - Add block penetration to 2H.

    Bummer. I's sad now...

    It should work for the NB teleport strike, but I believe it doesn't (I am talking about design, not bug)

    Err .. No.
    The Orcish racial is all about running, which the 3 "charge" skills all imply.
    Teleport strike is ... well, a teleport. You don't use your legs, you use magicka. Thus the bonus doesn't apply.

    I guess it doesn't work for the Templar Aedric Spear charge attack either correct?

    Do you mean the Templar skill called "Focused Charge"?

    Is this getting fixed? I show 2% at rank 3 instead of 6%.
