Grounding Shot

Post by aeroch » Mon Aug 06, 2012 2:36 am

Not really Ranger specific, probably applies to any character with Archery

Forum Date/Time: 8/6/12 2:30

Server Rev #:

World Location Coordinates, Macrozone, Microzone: N/A

Character Information (race, class, level): 75 Shade Ranger

Bug Summary: Refined Archery to 95%, Bow was 133%, and received message stating "You may not cast that spell!" when attempting to use Grounding Shot. Trained Archery to 96% and was able to use Grounding Shot again.

Additional Information: Grounding Shot power icon never disappeared from powers window, but clicking/using hotkey only prompted the "may not cast" error. Increased character's intelligence from 60 to 72 and then refined Archery down to 95% around the same time I noticed this, which might have something to do with it.

i'm guessing it's related to stats. here's a SS of a Thief with less dexterity, same intelligence, 95 Archery, and Grounding Shot works without a problem

and here's the Ranger refined from 165 dex to 160 dex with 95 Archery and Grounding Shot works fine

i think it's an issue with how stats are affecting focuses and the rounding up/down involved

Yeah that's not a bug, the client is just shitty at rounding. I had a barbarian on Mourning where I'd log in every once in a while and be unable to equip my armor because every once in a while it would round my Medium Armor skill down to 99% instead of up to 100%, but it would still say 100% despite reading it as 99% internally or whatever. So I had to leave it at 101% to avoid the problem.

I untrained archery to 94%, ./printskills showed me at 94.666664%. Grounding shot disappeared when i refreshed my powers window.

Retrained archer to 95%, ./printskills showed me at 95.666664%. Grounding shot reappeared on my window and executed just fine.

pending further testing, I would say this is fixed as of r5211
You can run, but you'll die tired.
