vMA treated me to a brand new bug I haven't seen before!

fluffycannibalb16_ESO
To preface: I've got a long-running UI bug in vMA (and only in vMA), where I just kind of explode at random. For example, about 20 minutes ago I died at full health and even after watching the video clip of it happening back a few times, I can't for the life of me figure out why. I'm just about rational enough to conclude that it's an add-on problem and not a bug that ZOS designed just to screw me and only me, and must have something to do with my health bar desyncing. I have no idea which add-on or combination of them is causing it, but it's happened on two PCs (the second with a fresh install of everything, game and add-ons alike). Also, not that it's really relevant here, but it's never happened in dungeon solos or in Vateshran, and yes, I have videos of it happening, so no, I am not mistaken about it.

So, after exploding the most recent time I disabled all add-ons and then this lovely death happened...

    How is your ping? Based on the sounds, screen shake, death recap, etc. it looks to me that she hit you again and that killed you but you were desynched so you didn’t see it happen.

    I can't say for sure at the moment that happened, but there were no lag spikes before this, even during a reasonably large fight in IC.

    it looks like you werent showing the dmg being taken by the nerieds, because that showed up as 4 of the 5 hits in your recap

    there are occasional enemies that seem to do this, such as the public dungeon group boss in zenithars abbey has a few attacks that do not visibly show on you, but you will drop dead mysteriously with the dmg showing up on the recap

    between seconds 2 and 3 in your clip, your stamina and mag immediately drop to 0, which is another indication you died, and your health was desynced and took the extra like 2-3 seconds to catch up to actually show you had died (your character doesnt drop dead until 6 seconds into the clip, when you run out of resources between 2-3 seconds into the clip

    Seen this in VMA, but it was on Arena 8 and a Kyngald got me while fighting the final boss. Didn't even seen the fireballs or the damage until I was "insta-killled." Showed up in the combat recap, just like the neried bolts did for you

    Consider turning on the ping and frame rate indicators. As said above, you died before you dropped dead. In addition to resources going to zero, you can see the island reform before you fall over. I see this when I'm at 999+ ping at times.
