[Bug] Obstructed! for Necro Shades

edited November 14 in Bugs: Game, Forum, Website

The Necro's Shades cannot do damage anymore when placed on (the edge of) walls/battlement, hills, ramps, bridges and many more. Also the slightest difference in elevation or loss of LoS due to rocks, trees, ... results in "Obstructed! Obstructed! Obstructed!" ... Sometimes staff marks get triggered but don't to damage/effect won't happen, too.

This seems unintended because i.e. Elementalists are still able to do damage with their skills.

EDIT: It's not walls only. The smallest difference in elevation results in "Obstructed!"
EDIT2: Or objects in LoS ...
EDIT3: examples

    Its on a necro so is a fearute. The best is when 2 are inside the shade and you activate F2-5 and you see "obstructed" only on 1...
    Probably theres something wrong with "Fixed a bug that could cause this skill's targets to be lost due to proximity between shades or the casting scourge"

    Doing also in pve.

    We dont need proper balance between game modes, we need more mount skins !

    I am getting this constantly also and I hope it gets fixed quickly because clearing walls is one of our main roles in WvW.

  • Bash.7291Bash.7291 Member ✭✭

    Honestly I would take the previous targeting issue where overlapping shade/necro would only hit 5 targets instead of 10 over this. It completely breaks the AoE design behind the shade. I have messed around with it, and there are even times where you can cast the shade directly behind the target, and still get an obstructed message. How could the placement for the skill manage to have LoS, but not the actual hit -.-

  • BUMP.

    It's been a few days and still no official response from Anet.

  • Hope this gets fixed soon really cuts down on shade uses

  • Azoricus.7409Azoricus.7409 Member ✭✭

    And now it seems nefarious favor is also doing something it should not(?). A bit of comunication from Anet would be great. At least a "we're aware of this and looking in to it" post would be nice. As a 95% WvW player that mains necro, this makes me seriously think of starting to raid with another class cause with the shades being obstructed by "blades of grass" we loose a better part of our role in a wvw fight.

  • Sefer.9618Sefer.9618 Member ✭✭

    Worst thing is that this is happening open field, too... or even if well placed on players as reported by others... Reported on several places but no sign of recognition from ANET... :-(

  • seeing obstructed half of the times i have a fight triggers me so hard it better be a bug and not a feature

  • Shade are not projectile so can't no reason to be obstructed and shade comp too

  • bump. very important for wvw. Thanks for quick fix.

  • Kirnale.5914Kirnale.5914 Member ✭✭

    Anet please fix it. I can't even bomb down from a wall.

  • Crazy.6029Crazy.6029 Member ✭✭

    Getting a lot of obstructed off shades , not just for walls but hills and slopes in areas too. Please give this attention cause it's getting known and now opponents are positioning to exploit it.

    To be honest I didn't notice it until I read it. (hard to see in wvw blob battle)
    This bug, however, is very noticeable. It's not that people are hiding it.

  • Eros.6801Eros.6801 Member ✭✭

    Can we have official responses from Anet? Is this a bug or another unofficial nerf ? Or do you even cares ? The obstructed in most game mode is really annoying.

    Thats not we are silent coz of that, we want fixed all and avoid all hate, but most of us getting problems even hit ppl, and in wvw you dont have time to watch if it corrupts 2 or 4. But these 2 problems are big game breackers... one for wvw and other for pvp. Hope that Anet will solve this as fast as they can.

  • It's almost getting to the point of shades being unreliable because of this. It happens even on a slight terrain differential. This needs to be reverted back; otherwise then any and all skills from all other classes that have the ability to hit things on differing terrain also needs to be getting the "obstructed" message as well.

    Till that post i dont even noticed cos in zerg fight is impossible to see. Crazy thing that looks like it only happen on scourge shades...
    Btw anyone can check if Dhuumfire proc correctly on F2-5 spam

  • Harum.2896Harum.2896 Member

    This has made me rage quit WvW with scourge several times now. Decide to go back to reaper to test the patch changes till shades get fixed but that just made me rage quit the whole game for now.

    Pls fix necros asap.

  • Bumping the thread so it doesn't get buried

    Another weird behavior: I can hit canons on walls with my shades and F-skills(but the person using that canon is obstructed), but oil is always obstructed.

    Even if you place the shade behind a corner or pillar and you slightly cover yourself it's gonna say "obstructed"

  • Lexan.5930Lexan.5930 Member ✭✭✭

    I hope this gets fixed soon cuz attacking walls and even camps is a real pain with all this "obstruction" stuff.

    pvp is a real pain to if i want to hide behind a pillar and plink mid

    ANet seems to fix only necro bugs, that gives us some advantage, like that doubled boon conversion or too much damage here and there. But nothing that prevents us from making damage,

    Praise Joko!

    yeah, looking for that patch note, double corrupt fixed.... about this they dont care, not even something like "we working on it" .. " or its feature, get used to it" ...
    they just fix double corrupt coz bigger cry river from pvp.

    I experienced this first-hand last night in, in fact, WvW when I was taking out a cannon on an enemy keep. Here's to hoping we can get a response! (Oh Gaile, come out come out where ever you are!)

    Elemental Core in Snowblind fractal is "Obstructed" to all the damage from shades. This is so "great" for party with three scourges.
    This bug requires fix ASAP, Anet.
