Corrosive Dragon Breath Bug?

I thought I was clever and started using this trait (Corrosive Dragon Breath) because I thought I would be able to use a spell gem like Redirect to force an enemy to provoke thus lowering all enemy defense by 40%. I was wrong. Do enemies have to defend/provoke manually to proc the trait?

It looks like that trait is bugged for provoking specifically - it’ll only test to see if the first creature in your party has Corrosive Dragon Breath. As a workaround for now, you could put the creature with that trait in the first slot in your party and it should work.

Thank you for the lightning fast response. And that’s why this is the best game on the play store. This workaround does indeed work.
