    Hold the Line increases Dodge...?

    Hello.

    Just earlier today, I was stalling Blightbeard with one of my good friends.

    We managed to catch something really offsetting on his live stream (left out of this thread b/c P101C forum rules) ー Immobilizing an enemy (the Undead Houngan), with the enemy gaining Dodge from it.

    Here's an in-game screenshot I took:

    Here's a clip from my friend's live stream that shows this moment:


    The thing was, the enemy was already immobilized from Frozen Tide.
    Also, his Blightbeard (companion) didn't have Hold the Line at all.

    My Question + Thoughts

    How does something like this even happen?

    The Dodge reduction is likely a secondary effect similar to how Epics like Riposte 3+ grant buffs.
    However, the stated condition, in this case being that an enemy approaches the user, isn't even met.
    My Ratbeard has Hold the Line 3, so I considered that it might be his HtL that activated on the enemy.
    However, I am not sure if that would actually be the case (while it is stated to activate against engaging enemies only, it might be possible for that not to be the case, depending on how it was coded).

    Has this happened to anyone?
    Does anyone have any insight on how this might be possible?
    Any and all ideas are appreciated.

    Ratbeard ー would you or any other staff member who's worked on Pirate101 have an idea on how this works?

    [I may send a bug report in the form of an email later today on this.]

    Yeah, it's a grant from Hold the Line 5. It was introduced in Valencia 2 I believe. My Privateer has it, ironically, with the Kane gear.

    Yeah, HtL 4/5 does give Dodge.
    However, it only gives Dodge to the user ー the one who has HtL5.
    The only one who would have HtL5 (or HtL4, for that matter) would've been my friend's Pirate, and I'm pretty sure the Undead Houngan in Blight's fight does not have any rank of Hold the Line.
    Also, his Blightbeard (companion) did not receive a Dodge reduction, nor did he approach the Undead Houngan.
    Additional note, the "Immobilized" effect has a debuff icon (which goes on the engaging unit), but grants Dodge here instead ー I am thinking it might be possible for that enemy to have negative Dodge.
