reaper player here, I've been waiting since HoT days for you to completely fix Grasping Darkness but this has not happen yet. I know it can be a difficult skill to fix, and I appreciate you looking at it with recent patch, but it is simply not enough. Despite the range increase the pull feels now slower, to the point where it's even easier to dodge it. Most of all the time that pass beetween the spawning of the claws and the actual pull is still too much. The pull is still unrealiable every little thing that is not a perfect flat terrain still might make the pull fail. If the target is close/near a wall the pull completely fails since the claws vanish for no reason and no pull is done.
Please increase the velocity of the claw that pull the enemy and make it more reliable on uneven terrains.
I'll leave here a link to an image of the most ridicolous interaction I've seen
I was clearly aiming to pull the bear but claws somehow climb the wall behind and go over it not even pulling the beast =/.
I'll invite every other necro player to leave here screens or video or grasping darkness fails so that Anet can have a big catalogue of situations where it does not work, and maybe learn something from these fails that can help them fix it.
Ty for attention
