Balorgh's bleed DOT is bogus

Any other tanks know what I'm talking about here?

Tank Balorgh and you'll end up with this bleed DOT on you, its mostly not a problem. However if you push him into a hunt phase while this DOT is on you it will amp up and tick for like 23k bleed damage, and you're long dead before the DOT / fear clears.

Apparently you're helpless while your character is sitting there covering their face while this DOT destroys them. I've had this dot show up on my death recap, the only thing on my death recap for 120k + in DOT damage.

The only counter play I've discovered is to not get hit when Balorgh is near hunt percents. Kinda hard when your job as the tank is to, you know, take hits.

I thought pushing the boss to hunt phases was supposed to suppress this bleed DOT on your character?

I ran with someone who said they ran with a tank who didn't have this problem.

What's the deal with Balorgh's bleed DOT when you get feared into a hunt?

    My tank had these bleeds on him yesterday, but survived them anyway.

    @Astrid_V

    Do you know if they were using the DK ult Magma Shell / Corrosive Armor?

    Or how exactly they were surviving?

    I had to really get creative to avoid these bleeds in my group on my Nightblade tank.

    It's a bug that was fixed and then re-broken:

    DK with magma.

    Yea that's what I figured. Obviously I don't have that option on a Nightblade so I wasn't able to survive in a situation a DK could.

    Though according to @code65536 's link posted above, the DOT shouldn't be ticking while feared anyways and every class, not just DK's with magma, should be able to tank / survive it.

    Until ZOS fixes this problem (specifically, the hunt mechanic is amplifying the bleed, which is not intended), the only real solution is to either pop Magma before a hunt phase, or ask your DDs to hold DPS and not push into a hunt phase until the bleed expires.

    Yea I had to resort to kiting the boss a few % before the hunt phase triggers to avoid even getting the DOT on me.

    There was no way I could survive the amped up damage, even with pre-casting heals and someone spamming heals on me.

    A bit sloppy, and I hate practicing a strategy for an unintended mechanic but we managed to handle it for the most part. The thing is, we shouldn't have had to.
