Raika Death Ward Not Working

Raika death ward is not working.
I wonder if this is an attempt to fix the death ward bug?
The animation to show she has death ward from the ioun stone appears at the start of the battle, but if she dies from injury (and maybe some other ways) the death ward doesn’t work.
This is a bad one - I spent a lot of money on that card.

Hey lemonfarmer, could I ask you to reach out to our support team at support+forums@ludia.com so our team can gather more details on the battle? Please include your support key in the email as well.

Thanks!

Raika’s death ward item has a fail Rate. You can’t count on it activating. Pretty hit and miss during the best of times.

Add to that the Cori bots throw out misfortune which makes it always fail.

There is an animation at the start of the battle which shows when death ward procs

Yes, but the trigger percentage is checked when she dies.

Just because the item activates doesn’t insure it’s going to work. Even at 16 it’s only 80% I think. I only have mine at 14 and it’s 40%. Meaning even though it’s active and the icon is showing i I have a 60% chance of it failing….

If the animation appears Raika has death ward. If not she doesn’t.
Always been like that in the 2 years plus I’ve been playing.

Yes, if the animation appears she has death ward. But it appears every battle. The percentage chance is checked on death. Cori’s epic ring slot death ward works the same way. Regardless, misfortune shuts down all death wards, even 100% chances like Hal’s.
Edit to add:
Incidentally, the death ward on zombies works the same way. When you enter the room, they all get the animation and buff, but it only fires half the time when they die.

What lvl do you have it at? Sry you spent so much money on it. It’s not the most dependable item. I’ve been playing this since almost day one and it’s always been that way :man_shrugging:

I think Lemonfarmer is saying that the percentage proc chance of Deathward takes place before the battle even starts, and not at the moment of death. I always thought it was at the moment of death, but now it has me thinking. Does a passive Deathward item like Raika’s do its percentage proc check at the beginning of a battle, or when she dies, to see if Deathward works? I guess you would have to pay attention to the opening Deathward animation, and see if the animation happens every time, or only a percentage of the time.

I have noticed when entering rooms of 4-5 zombies, that the Deathward animation doesn’t always happen on every zombie, at the start of a battle. I never thought much about it until now, but maybe if the animation doesn’t happen, that means the passive Deathward ability failed.

Nah, I checked zombies right before I added my edit. I entered rooms, saw them all get the animation, and then not all revive. I even had a room with only one zombie. It got the animation and didn’t revive. The only time I’ve seen zombies who don’t get the buff and animation is when they spawn from portals. Portal zombies never get the buff.
