Act 3 Dragon's aura is broken in turn-based

The dragon you fight in Act 3 has a fire aura. For some reason that fire aura does damage every few seconds as if it was RTwP, even when combat is set to be turn-based and it should only trigger once per round, meaning that it’s extremely lethal to fight the dragon with turn-based turned on.

To replicate, just start the dragon combats in turn-based mode, and then have someone stand next to it. I specifically remember it occurring in the ambush and the tower combats.

Also the dragon in general seems to be poorly balanced for turn-based, as it can fairly reliably kill an entire party before they can act, but that’s not totally related to the actual bug.

You can try using Resist Energy Communal against it

I did, which works right up until it gets dispelled and people start dying from constant ticks which means it needs to get re-cast as fast as possible while speeding through turns.

yes i have the same bug and it seems seelah aura of greater courage seems bugged too.
