[quote=“VagrantSun, post:2, topic:1033”]Provoke isn’t a perfect chance. It’s something like 75%, though I don’t remember the exact percentage off the top of my head.
There’s no ability called Reborn - you’re probably thinking of the Rebirth buff, which is the one that ressurects a monster on death with a mediocre amount of health. Unless you’re on Randomized Creatures and are already encountering Ancestral Phoenixes (if you are, good luck), the only way to get that buff is off an artifact enchant that has a max 5% chance of activating. That’s extroardinarily unlucky, but weirder things have happened. Alternatively, the Soul Reaper’s Day of the Dead ability has a 50/50 chance to ressurect an allied creature on death, but again, that would require randomized tiers.
There are several ways to win that fight that I can think of immediately, but at the early stage of the game you’d have fought that battle in (considering you don’t yet have the full six creatures) almost none of them are available. Keep doing tier rituals, and look for the following, all of which would win that fight:
- Splash Damage (Harpy Pillager/Ethereal Clutcher/Cinder Devil/Skeletal Mortarsman)
- Wrath spam (Wrath Ghoul)
- Death Effect prevention (Bone Reaper)
- Counter damage (a lot of things)
Sometimes bad luck just strikes, man, but I seriously doubt that battle was unwinnable.[/quote]
It may not be Reborn but it resurrected itself over and over again with a really high chance. It kept provoking us while attacking my creatures at the same time so I don’t know if this is a bug. And it’s really 100%. Can’t dodge at all.
