Recently when i was playing BG i had a feeling that something was wrong with Blighted Blastbones, so i decided to spam it a little and then i realised that my damage dealt didn't go up at all. I thought it was just a bug or something but today i decided to test it.
I started a BG, i got a deatmatch (perfect) my plan was spamming Blighted Blastbones for the entire BG and see how or will it even deal any damage.
at the very beggining i used a Dizzying Swing out of habit on a enemy with shield/or blocking i don't remember correctly, and it deal 1.6k damage.
i checked my total damage dealt and it was showing 1.6k damage dealt so that was fine, then i began spamming Blighted Blastbones, i did it for 7 minutes,
then i checked my total damage dealt and it was still at 1.6k damage, but doing this for 7 minutes i saw that Blighted Blastbones dealt some damage on enemies but it was
so low that it wasn't even noticable on their healthbar and Blighted Blastbones didn't even show any numbers when he exploded on enemy (i have the option that shows numbers of how much damage you dealt with a skill above your enemy's nickname turned on), then for the next 7 minutes i strated playing normally and of course my total damage dealt went up as usual, i noticed that
Dizzying Swings dealt around 3-4k damage and it was shown on the numbers and every Dizzying Swing counted to total damage dealt.
I decided to compare Blighted Blastbones with Dizzying Swing and in skill description (still inside a Battleground match if that matters) it said that Dizzy would deal around 10k damage and on Blastbones it said around 12k damage, but of course Dizzy swing deals Physical Damage while Blastbones does Disease Damage, so of course damage of Dizzying Swing is lower when you hit a player with it because of the resistances, but what about Blastbones? it should deal maybe around 4-6k damage i believe that average player should have less Disease Resistance than Physical Resistance right? so Blastbones should deal some damage but it dealt very very low damage on Battlegrounds.
I am really confused am i misunderstanding something about resistances or how the game works? or Blighted Blastbones is just ***? Can someone explain this to me?
