    Please fix this anet! I was listening to wonderful players tonight and the bug is messing the music up!

  • Help us fix this issue Anet!

  • im sorry guys still we have tested our musical instruments and sadly its not been fixed and i feel we have lots probably one of the most talented music player in the game Lernova and also im loosing some interest as music was one of my Favorite things to do in the game . there are entire guilds full of music players that depend on the mechanics of theses instruments and i feel they will soon loose interest ... i know i am . plz Anet once again plz fix this so we wont loose our music player friends Permanently .

  • Today we got a patch dramatically increasing the number of notes that can be played per second before incurring a cooldown. I'm really excited for the potential this brings, but sadly, since the octave switching bug still has not been fixed, this new feature is meaningless. Anet--since there are clearly people in the studio thinking about this again, please take a look at what can be done to improve the octave switching situation.

    Yeah sadly it is not fixed, but I get the feeling that it got a little bit better

  • Raseus.2543Raseus.2543 Member ✭✭

    but without the bug you could play the until now unplayable version of "He´s a Pirate" and other fast songs, until the switch bugs kicks in it works fine

  • Over a year later and still no fix. Only cooldown changes :/
