Radiant Destruction Bugged?

I keep seeing massive radiant destruction's showing up in my recap, it looks like they are ignoring how much health i have and hit me like a truck regardless; this is an active skill not an ultimate? Is this really supposed to hit this hard? I have 25k health on my character and around 60% physical and spell resist.

The enemy landed two successive blows for 13k and 16k while they were in the safety of their spawn area.

    ZoS, please include a hit # variable to death recap so people can see how many hits are included in one line of information.

    OP, it is likely you were hit with several ticks of RD, it does 4 hits per 3s channel, but the death recap simply adds up each channel and shows it as one big hit.

    The only way you were hit with one tick that equaled 16k damage is if you were incredibly low on health. Like less than 10%.

    Yes, I never thought it possible but we need a nerf to this ability. No, I do not hate Templars but this ability is just way to overpowered. Now that we can see damage NOTHING in game kills me faster. If they use dark flare first it is ridiculous. This doesn't require a discussion. It is math.

    Fix it ESO. The change would be simple. Just nerf the damage. Why? Because hit hits ridiculously hard. Harder then any other ability in the game. It is not balanced. It is broken. This ability needs to be nerfed by a hot fix. Like immediately. Nerf Radiant destruction.

    He said he's a Stam Dk bc Stam Dk and Stam Sorc have the worst acess to purge.

    6/8 classes can drop this insta. 2/8 need to slot efficient purge. One of those is saying naw it's np.

    Every thread is the same with statements that are outright lies and/or have no thought put into them.

    No round 2 take away the damage, start with mag NB or Sorc for that.

    Typically the arguement for not nerfing OP and broken abilities is the access to counters. No, access to purge does not in anyway make it so radiant destruction does not need a nerf.

    It is not rocket science. It is simple and you all know it. Radiant destruction does to much damage and needs a nerf. Bottom line.

    It is not broken because templars' dps in pve is on par with the other classes even though they have this "op" ability.
    Its not rocket science, the numbers of the skill are fine.

    Thanks for your feedback on this ability, everyone. We did take a look at this ability just to make sure it was working properly and as intended, and it is. There are some circumstances where it can feasibly hit pretty hard, but that's ok in our eyes and we don't currently have plans to change its functionality. It's also worth noting that the way our Death Recap UI works is it combines all tickets of one channel together into one entry, so it may appear as though Radiant Destruction has some outrageous damage at first.

    Dude you have no idea what you're talking about.

    Every class gets purge

    Stam Dk and Stam Sorc need to use a bar slot on efficient purge and it's hardest for them sustain-wise

    You don't know how the game works. This thread is pure whine. Read one of the other 20 threads ppl are spamming to learn about the game.

    All this whining about radiant, everything is *** OP right now, yesterday my shielded sorc got killed within 2 secs by a camo hunter NB with 15K incap strike and 10k suprise attacks ok? now here u come in with your thread, every thing can hit like *** crazy, if u are set to pure pure dps glass cannon, yes then Radiant hits insane hard..

    about countering, i agree it dousnt need a nerf, i got jesus beamed alot yesterday in pvp while even above execute range, it didnt hit that hard, simply cast some damage shield, and dont ever fight jesus beamers in the open, always use rocks etc, so they cant beam you, if they still do, just get some object between you and the beam.. its that simple.

    i hope this helps abit, i dont wanna rant on you, because i got killed many times by jesus beam, but its just a thing, dont come in templar's houses.

    last thing, if u dont agree with all these op things and classes, go play nightblade, it's a very fair and balanced class

    Radiant and channels in general are probably one of the easiest things in the game to deal with. They should hit hard AF. You seen a soul assault tooltip?

    LOL. it hits to hard and needs a nerf. I am not crying. It is math and simple numbers. Also, there is absolutely no way this ability will not get nerfed. I am just lobbying for this to happen right away. Why wait? If you want to argue it should not be nerfed take kindergarten level math so you have a clue. Those blocks :(

    I don't hate Templars. Nor do I believe an ability should be nerfed just because it is effective but come on naysayers... lol. Don't defend something this broken. I meant to edit and not reply lol

    How is this different than Sorcs / NBs spamming their ranged insta cast finishers? Except that radiant you can purge / interrupt, the Sorc/NB finisher you can't.


    And yes, I do find it annoying too.. there's always a couple in a large group that do nothing else but spam finishers.. in large masses, it's quite effective unfortunately... but doesn't mean Radiant in itself is better than the other finishers.

    That's the problem with posts like take.. people repost it all the time, ignoring the fact that it's a biased test that cleverly "forgets" that you can light attack weave during all those other executes doing way more overall damage than the radiant example.

    This video was already debunked in the thread it was originally posted in. The poster even ADMITTED the video was biased and not properly tested! Stop posting this garbage as if it is fact.

    There's been a ridiculous amount of these threads. Maybe read one of them before starting another using the same arguments which were already refuted.

    There are options to counter it, learn them and use them.

    Please specify the amount of health they had remaining when you hit that 23,000 crit. I'd personally like to know how much of that dmg was irrelevant overflow.
