"it The Recruit in the body part, but the attack is deflected by The Recruit's (iron breastplate)!"
Steps To Reproduceput a dwarf in rigid armor, throw him off a high building, look up combat log

related to 0005743: "The Foodwarf counterstrikes!" during sparring is not marked as happening during sparring (red instead of light blue)

The malformations don't stop there: apparently the game doesn't keep up with what body part is actually taking the damage. I had a dwarf equipped with only a helm (over his normal clothing) who was training in wrestling. When he was thrown, "it The militia commander in the lower body, but the attack is deflected by The militia commander's (bronze helm)!" [^]

Does this reproduce regularly in the arena in 0.40+? I've tried dumping some armored people from the heights and the announcements aren't broken.

I couldn't reproduce it either in 0.40+.
The only thing I could find is a slightly awkward phrasing in the report when you throw an armored dwarf and they skid on the ground, e.g:
"Dwarf 1's left lower leg skids along the ground, but it is deflected by Dwarf 1's small steel greaves!"

So the generic "it" refers to the ground, meaning that the ground gets deflected? It's a bit silly, but that's really the only leftover from this bug that I could find in arena mode.

We'll call it fixed, then. Please reopen or PM me on the forums if otherwise.
