Archer bug?Follow

#1 Oct 31 2010 at 3:27 PM Rating: Good
I haven't logged in in a few days, but whenever I draw my bow with my archer, my stamina dips straight down to 0, so I'm stuck waiting before actually engaging the mob. It happens at other times too mid fight, from full to 0, and that's just with the basic attack. Anyone else experiencing this? My buddy noticed it on his mage too with thunder depleting his bar or not casting at all.

I've noticed it on all classes. (I've leveled up all of them to some extent) I think it's a universal bug that just "sometimes happens" and has been happening for a while.
It's annoying but it doesn't happen every time. Now when it happens I'm just like... oh no stamina again and just wait for it to refill.

I have the same problem on occasion with my archer. Best way to avoid it is to make sure you are level with the mob, facing it directly and well within striking range. Doing that I generally am able to keep it from happening.

Why do gnats drop rat tails and lemurs drop gnat wings?

It's a glitch when you select an attack command and you're out of range. If you're out of range the stamina bar always (from what I've noticed) goes to zero. Facing the right direction might also be important too, but I haven't paid attention to that.

Every time I've had it happen to me (on Marauder) I've been within striking range. I never get an out of range or facing message either, it just drains my stamina and then the attack occurs normally when the meter reaches the appropriate level.

The best way to avoid it is to manually draw your weapon first before queuing an attack. I've only ever noticed it happening if I try to attack a mob immediately from passive mode and let the attack engage me.
