Dunno if its your first time casting the spell Power Word Blind but there has ALWAYS been a slight lag after casting the spell. If you think about it I agree 100% with the lag cause then if there wasn't one then we chanters could solo just about anything. Its why you lagged its not broken but its in the code to lag you a round or two after casting the spell.

It's because his spell landed right at the tick... see how blur falls right after the first spell fails. He hit that annoying action-on-tick-lags-you bug.

That's five rounds. That's an ultra-bash or basically being bodyslammed for being vulnerable. PWB doesn't lag any more than any other spell. Whether it's 'constriction', 'contagion', or even utility spells, like 'armor' - this type lag only occurs during fights. They're not always near a tick so that's not the issue.

I just find it odd that this problem, which can easily get a player killed, isn't being addressed, yet time for nerfing trip to relative bash size finds higher priority. In general, I find the game always being hosed as a higher priority rather than fixing or addressing chronic troublesome issues.

well you see Eil isn't a coder he codes out of the goodness of his heart and therefore your issue should be taken up with the coder gods who aren't doing anything lately, at least to our knowledge.

Honestly I don't even know if there are coder gods other than Shev. Are there?

Thil, could you fill out a ticket for this and explain it in as much detail as possible?

I'm not asking that to be rude or put you off, though I can understand how it might seem that way. It's helpful to divorce the issue at hand from the commentary surrounding it so that we can track it and work on it objectively, without the emotional baggage.

Thanks in advance.
