    Ferryman + Starfire talis = glitch

    Have seen this a few times in arena - if ferryman has starfire talis he is permanently immune to passive disable. Have tried multiple characters against this setup including those with guaranteed passive disable moves and it wonít take. Had to force quit multiple times where I had wiped out entire teams and a sole ferryman was untouchable. It only happens with starfires though.

    He's also immune to Marks... and Eclipse talismans STILL work on him (always have) even though they aren't supposed to.

    Lower his Max HP, hit with DoT. It's a pain but he dies eventually.

    I've been thinking with Ferryman - would it make sense for him to lose a % of his max HP each turn, not current HP? That still gives him good survivability (basically a 20 turn Doom, more if he is healed) but would prevent a lot of these never ending battles.

    Doesn't his passive already reduce both, or is that part of it bugged or able to be avoided? http://www.news.maiden-lotb.com/n3/c...erryman-magus/

    I think the problem is that his max HP reduces by 5% of his current max HP, not his original max HP - this means that, eventually, you get a reduction of basically 0 and he'll be floating there very happily with 1 HP that cannot be removed (especially if he has dragon scale talismans on so is immune to burns).

    Seen this too - there are a lot of teams this week with him in it though not that many have starfire on him when I have went against them - doom or dark ghost seems to get him eventually so I have MLOL ready to deal the pain!
    Missing the following characters (well the ones I want!):

    Samurai Emperor Eddie - Lone Star - Mystic Flame Eddie - Thor Eddie
    Krampus - Minotaur - Cosmic Shinob - Plague Doctor Harpy - Valhalla Maiden - Madame Fortune

    Yeah I have found a few workarounds and been able to beat it a few times - I was just pointing out that itís a busted combo and likely earning some folks undeserved wins or draws as people usually enter battles against ferryman with PD ready characters. I donít play arena all that much but been going for the achievements this week so this setup has been a bit of a pain.

    I also noticed last night I had 4 Ferryman In the next level of teams I had to face. Too lazy to change my lineup but one of my chars was able to kill him easy enough. Though it was Van Helsings Mark doing it? Haven't seen any with Starfire but I'm sure I'll know when I do.

    I am nearly done with the 150 battles so easing off a bit now. Very few 'weak' teams but enough mid level that the targets have been pretty easy to do. I had a weak def up but going to change back tomorrow as no one else seems to be doing it - maybe 1 in 10 or less that I see - a few more on my defence list though.
