Parried finishing moves consuming combo pointsq

Post by Elamari » Thu Apr 23, 2015 7:23 am

On Beastlord tonight I had two Ferocious Bites parried at two different instances both consuming the 5 combo points. Is this intended? It never used to happen. Was there a change? Can anyone shred some light on this?

Cheers.

Not intended. Very sad bug.

I think it was introduced in 6.1? Can't remember exactly, it's been a wild ride for these bugs lately.

Man that sucks. Surprised the hell out of me. I went to try and FB again and took me a sec to realise I didn't have any combo points.

Boo-urns :cry:

It does not happen with rip, only ferocious bite.

Yeah, I've only had this happen with Bite, not rip. So odd.

Kudos for the pun, intended of not

On Topic: That's indeed quite sad. Might even explain why my damage dropped on some occasions this week. I hope they fix it soon.

Had this happen twice on Beastlord last night... needless to say I wasn't too thrilled about it...

Yeah I've had that exact thing happen a few times, and the worst is when you are clipping a rip with FB at the last few seconds of its duration and it gets parried and then aren't able to get it back up.

Yeah, this happened to me the previous reset on Gruul. I did like 2k DPS less than normal and was like 'wtfuuuu' looked at the logs and got 3 FBs parried over the course of the fight. /fail

I'm now being a lot more careful about holding abilities when it is my group's turn to take a slice.
