This is STILL an issue and I am livid. Doing a 2-mask run and getting great RNG on the Gift of the Titans trait; Rexxar’s boars survived my Focusing Iris and landed a few extra quills before I could kill them, so I was super low. One of the stampede beasts hit me and the Defibrillation trait did not trigger. Still had 3 orbs and I know for a fact I had not triggered the trait earlier in the run.
This is completely asinine and needs fixed ASAP. We should not be losing runs due to issues that are 100% Blizzard bugs and getting no compensation to try again.
EDIT: Okay, a little more calm now. I’m able to observe that my sanity ticked to 0 from the passive drain in the same moment that I got hit by a sanity-draining ability (the void stampede from Rexxar). This seems like a simultaneous actions issue, and sanity 0 seems to be taking precedence over the Defib trait working.
This should be an easy fix IMO. If player has Defib trait still up, they can’t die or zero out sanity regardless of drain source. Add a 1-second grace window on this (to account for simultaneous actions) and it likely resolves the issue for that scenario at least. This isn’t even really exploitable because the Defib trait is one-time only each run.
