So I'm pretty sure this is a bug, but Elektra kinda got a phantom buff because of it. I'm doing the Gauntlet right now and even when she's not in front and taking damage, her black is triggering and protecting Loki and Patches. Playing with her like this is more enjoyable for sure than previously and helps make up some of her drawbacks.
Basically, try her out during the current Gauntlet guys and hopefully if we can get enough positive feedback that this will change her black ability slightly, permanently. Makes her a much better psuedo-support character too.
It's triggering on self-damage as well (e.g. OML ), so I'm guessing it's a bug.
If an ally damages Electra while she has her shadow step out, the damage from the trap still goes to the enemy, right?
I was using the newly revamped Invisible Woman, Elektra and Hood as a team in the Shield Simulator event. The other team had Thing on it. Elektra was down to about 1300 health when I finally got enough black to cast her Shadow Step. Five trap tiles come out, and I'm feeling safe. Thing gets enough red for Clobberin' Time. It does 5K to Elektra, and takes her down even with the traps out.
This is the first time I've had an ability that stuns her also do enough damage to kill her with a trap out. Is this a bug, or is this how Elektra's Trap tiles are supposed to work? Does the stun come first and then the damage, or does the damage come first and then the stun? Does the stun automatically negate the trap tiles, even if the damage comes first?
If it's a bug, I'll file a report. If not, it's a good thing to know and I'll play accordingly later on.
but who's she good with her in 4* land?
Yeah they totally ran out of room on the rank 5 description to even mention the bonus steal if you have a trap out. You know your power is too complicated when...
