Needs of the one drains way too much

Post by spazgar » Tue May 14, 2013 11:11 am

Forum Date/Time: 5-14-1013 8am est ish

Server Rev #:5355

World Location Coordinates, Macrozone, Microzone: Pandemonium, Qualgnarr Spawning Ground - 10163 72334

Character Information (race, class, level): Neph warlock level 68

Bug Summary: Warlocks mana drain, needs of the one was granting my warlock around 1k mana back per turtle with 5 points in it. It's listed at 195-223 w/ 48% efficiency so it should not be giving near that amount back.




Steps to Reproduce: Fly a couple tiers above a turtle at the darksworn drop, drain its mana.




Additional Information: Haven't tried other mobs or another warlock yet, will get to that.

Are you sure it was 1k per turtle? Is that what is said in the system channel?

I suspect this could be related to server/client sync in regards to what is displayed in the mana bar.

The combat log showed normal numbers, however my mana bar was jumping up that much and subsequent casts weren't making my mana drop drastically. Also, I would have been ooming if it wasn't draining that much.

The client's formula for mana regeneration seems to be different than what is actually happening on the server.

This means that your displayed mana could be lower than it actually is. Changes to mana that are not a result of regeneration (drains) would cause an update to occur. I suspect this is why it appears to jump so drastically.

Wouldn't casting update it?

Actually this appears to happen with alot of spells that return mama for example the fury mama from health spell seems to give back an absurd amount the first time you cast it and a more normal amount the second cast keep in mind this is from near zero mana as well. Also on live I played a deflock extensively and with 18 trains in my mana drain with more than two targets could get the mana to full which was roughly 670.

I agree that what you are seeing is probably a sync issue, but I doubt server/client regen mismatch is the main cause. It more likely stems from the fact that flight's mana cost penalty isn't being applied server side. Flight mana cost bug is already logged. viewtopic.php?f=69&t=7304

Next time you play the character you should use ./printstats to confirm that this isn't a separate issue.
