    lemme explain what happened and see if anyone has any explanations.

    i was in a nightmare hills run game with my 55 s/s barb, 8 players. we were in the middle of the hills (at the catapult after the little teleporting turds). there were like 6 of us in a group. all of a sudden two people (both assassins) were "Slain by Enslaved" and i dropped to 200/1300 life (i have 90-75-74-74 res mind you). i left immediately and came back as did half the people in the game. there were no hostile players and no special monsters. the response from everyone in the game was "wtf?!" also, this is hard core so dying is a big deal. :p

    now, anyone got any ideas on what happened?

    Major lag combined with multiple catapult hits of the fire type, they do insane damage, even you have high res.

    If you saw everyone moving at the time of people dying (= no lag), then I have no idea.

    there was no noticable lag

    90% fire res and 1300 life. i don't think so.

    on a related note, i had 10 people try pking me within the last 30 minutes. 90% fire res does wonders against hydras. they really freak when my barb casts a hydra back. :D

    I'm talking about those catapults that do instant damage when they hit, not the "immolation" style ones. I don't know if they're fire damage or physical, but they hurt like hell (read: instant kill in some instances).
