4190: Guard ability not working correctly

gamemechanic bug


When guarding an other player that ability should save said player from blows or arrows - however this should only be the case, when the guarding player is near the guarded group member AND if the angle between guarding and guarded player is +/- 90 degrees. This means, this ability should NOT work if the guarded player stands in front of the guarding player. However this is currently the case.

Reproduction Steps

1. Get a shield user with the guard ability (Armsman in my case)
2. Guard a group member
3. Let that group member fight a mob
4. Let the guarding player stand in front of the guarded player (in the back of the mob)
5. See the guarding player blocking blows for the guarded player

Intended Behavior

The guard ability should only work, when guarded and guarding player stand close together and in an angle of not more than +/- 90 degrees.


Test behaviour on live servers. You won't see blocking under said conditions.
