[EXTREME HUGE CRITICAL BUG] Weaver trait "Woven Stride" does not give Regen when gaining swiftness.

Upon using a skill that gives the weaver swiftness (arcane air attunement, air staff 4, offhand dagger 5) the weaver does not gain regen.

Why is this significant....? it's just regen
This is an extremely vital property and is actually gamebreaking to the point of unplayability for Weaver because this bug removes around 70% of their condi cleanse options.

How does this bug remove 70% of ele's condi cleanse options?
When a Weaver gains regen, and are built with the "Cleansing Water" trait from the Water Specilization, they will cleanse 1 condition every time they gain regen. Normally with the properly functioning "Woven Stride" trait, the Weaver would gain regen when gaining superspeed or swiftness. So they would be able to get a condi cleanse when attuning to air (with the Arcane Specilization), using Twist of Fate, interrupting someone while using "Polaric Leap" (superspeed), or using any dual skill (swiftness from "Swift Revenge"). However right now, "Woven Stride" does not give regen, leaving the Weaver with so much less condition cleanses that any heavy condi spam will effectively defeat the Weaver.

    just read the bug reporting guidelines, here are the extra points to fill in:

    date, time, and time zone the bug occurred: Thursday, April 11, 2019 at 12:20AM pst (UTC-7)

    name of map you're on: Eternal Battleground, Obsidian Sanctum, Crystal Desert, Elon Riverlands, Desert Highlands, Straits of Devestation. And I'm pretty sure every map has the same bug.

    your character name, level, race, and profession: Claire Wnm, 80, human, Elementalist (weaver)

    whether you're in a group: no

    Provide reproduction steps when possible. If you can reliably cause the bug you're seeing to occur again, let us know exactly how you did it!: Use any skill that gives swiftness (air attunement when using arcane specialization, press 4 when using staff while attuned to air, off hand dagger 5 updraft). None of these skills apply regen. Super speed from twist of fate also does not apply regen.

  • oh sekai already has a post on this. dang i didn't see it until just now.
    Please move my comments to Sekai.2987's forum post and delete this one. apologies for the inconvenience

  • Sekai.2987Sekai.2987 Member ✭✭

    actually everything okay with you posting here , the more people see it the better, now lets just see how long anet takes to fix this bug which is game breaking for every ele player and should be hotfixed within hours of finding it

    in case any dev/gm wants to "recreate" the bug, equip woven stride trait , and use any skil that gives swiftnes and see if you get the regen from the trait

  • yeah... ele is pretty much unplayable right now

  • fuzzyp.6295fuzzyp.6295 Member ✭✭✭

    This explains why I am dying so much in WvW now lol. Stealth nerf to Ele's condi removal?! just joking, but yeah Woven Stride is busted, no longer applying Regen upon superspeed OR swiftness. Hopefully it will be fixed faster than the Vapor Form glitch :)

    melee at 130 with 1k toughness and no condy removal and no sustain. and that's the only semi competitive spvp build. Why exactly is this not a critical bug requiring a top SLA hotfix Anet? Also a post to the affected players who can no longer pvp as a courtesy would be be welcome and show some diligence and respect.

  • Why does playing ele always make me feel like the redheaded step child of the Anet family? I’m sure Anet is doing something about this, but it always feels like we’re being blown off. Remember how long it took to fix signet of restoration when it was broken. And here I thought that significant.

    PS. I apologize to all the redheaded step children out there for my comments. I’m sure your families really do love you. :)

    Can you please fix this bug, please? The Smothering Auras build is no way near the same sustain in terms of healing, and it still requires billion times the effort to reach an equal amount of cleanses with so many skills to manage and more combo finishers to care for in order to gain auras and might.

    I swear I know of another world below. It shows just in the rain. It's here I know. It's inaccessible. The reverse of us.

    Pretty much every class have the same issue. Speedy fixes like the herald trait is more of an exception. Take a look at how long it took Swindler's Equilibrium or Gluttony(this one didn't really get fixed it just got changed instead) to get fixed.

    Not really, appreciate you may not play ele, but to let you understand, this bug removes 90%ish of all condy removal, just about all condy removal on demand, and 2.5k+ heal per 10 secs. This is with a profession that is forced into melee (130) range with 0 extra toughness and 500 stats already pumped into vitality to simply get to 17k. Its an eye opener that this has not been acknowledged yet, and i do wonder if the layoffs have in fact impacted Anets ability to respond properly. Put it this way I have been playing mmorpg since the beginning of wow, and I don't think i've ever seen a bug of this magnitude left unanswered for this length of time. I have also been a dev for 20 years, and the behaviour is odd for a company of this size.

  • yeah it's hardly possible to play ele in any compeitive mode with this bug. ele already has low damage, and with this bug they have low sustainability as well. all ele had was sustain and that's been shot. to put the severity of this into perspective, imagine taking the best aspect of your favorite/main class, and reducing that aspect's effectiveness by 70-90%. so if you play dps, this bug reduces the amount of dps to 30%; if you're a support, reduce all healing by 70%. that's how bad this is

  • bump for communication from Anet, Weaver broken for 1 week now.

    Is this still broken?

  • Zhaid Zhem.6508Zhaid Zhem.6508 Member ✭✭✭

    Of course it is still bugged.

  • FIX.WOVEN.STRIDE.

    One of the major traits that contribute to ele's sustain and yet, no hotfix, no patch, no RESPONSE even. Ridiculous.

    Oh, I had busy week and barely played my Weaver, but when I entered yesterday WvW and won some fights I ended up with blind so as usual wanted to clear it with simply switching to air attun...nothing happened. Thought it was just another WvW bug (hehehe, hey ANet, how about eventually FIXING MOUNT WHILE PLAYING WEAVER, HUH?) but I see it wasn't.
    Woven Stride is m a i n trait while playing weaver, now it's like playing character without 1 leg.
    And as others said, its hillarious that this bug has been on for like 1 week and despite bug report no one really cared about it.
    Im just wondering if anyone is actually reading this subforum.

  • Guys... guys.... Let’s just be patient. It’s not like this is a grandmaster trait. It’s not like this trait is a linchpin for most Weaver pvp/wvw builds.... wait, what are we talking about again?

    I have an idea, lets draw one person that will swear in this thread, cleverly bypassing censorship and then rest of us will report his post. This way we will surely draw some attention :) !

  • There's no kitten way they would be so poor as to react to a swear word but be entirely blind to a showstopper bug they introduced over a week ago that's made the game unplayable for a segment of their customer base - right?

    Title should say all.

    Woven Stride trait does not apply regeneration on gaining swiftness.
    Description clearly states:
    "Gain swiftness when you are inflicted with inhibiting conditions. When gaining either superspeed or swiftness, also gain regeneration. Swiftness has increased effectiveness. "

    This is a serious problem as it removes a major cleanse when combined with Cleansing Water).
    The class is even less viable in any pvp scenario now with no real options to stand up against power and now also condition based classes.
    Please stop breaking Ele to the point of unplayability for once.

    EDIT:
    When I searched the forums I only found the thread in the professions forum. So, sorry about reposting this. But still, it really needs to be fixed sooner rather than later, just stop hating on Eles for once, will you?

  • Bump for yet another day with no woven stride fix. Also weaver attunements borked with warclaw. This was fixed a year ago. Why did it reappear?

    Please tell us: are you aware about this game-stopper bug? You just killed the weaver.

    Was playing some of my ele and switched from tempest to weaver to theorycraft some builds and immediately noticed this...holy balls that is a massive bug lmao. Good thing it's not a condi meta in PvP because this bug basically puts weaver into Revenant tier when it comes to dealing with conditions.

    Really the kind of thing that should see an emergency hotfix.

    maybe add that almost all condy removal is lost as well.
