Impale (Earth Dagger auto) bugged

Unlimited range as long as you have an enemy targeted. It is ignoring walls and pillars and the bug is there in wvw and spvp. Not that I'm complaining as an ele main. But like.. lol

    Can confirm. Auto doesn't even require line of sight.

  • Can confirm too, really annoying in WvW

    Agreed. Playing against opposing team and so many Ele's running around doing this... utterly unplayable.

  • BIMBLE.7952BIMBLE.7952 Member ✭✭

    Just went on and checked with my Tempest Ele: I could shoot things through walls as long as they were targeted. Had large packs on opposing team in WvW running about on Ele, shooting people out of range and through walls! Most of the people I see playing each evening have logged out. Now, the opposing faction is just running around the map, dominating everything. We worked hard this week in WvW and, I love the game mode. But this! This has utterly destroyed it!

    NEEDS FIXING NOW!!!

    Logged out....

  • Fix it Arena Net i confirmed too i just used it a few time to be sure. i think thats a very good example what arena net currently messup with balancing and other things aswell your game WAS beautifull since you kicked out people from the jobs.

  • This range issue also occurs on the third swing of guardian hammer, just to add. if you have an enemy targeted, the third hit will place the symbol on your enemy, regardless of range.

    The "Balance" is a fantasy -- another mortal superstition.

  • thankfully with guard you actually need to hit something with the melee part of the chain to complete the auto chain ... also the no LOS part isn't actually a bug it always did that it just wasn't as noticeable with 300 range

  • don't wanna try it , fixed yet ? if not , here is a comment for more visibility

    I can confirm. I just got spam-hit by Impale while being INSIDE a structure. I will also report players abusing it.

    I may be flora, but you and I can have some fauna.

    This is pretty game-breaking, so I'm going to go ahead and bump this. Yeaaaah. (and meanwhile, my Ele is crying because he really wants to impale something from 3,000 meters away. )

  • Buff ele they said. People climbing ranked with this. Pretty sure bug abuser's get zero punishment. GG.

  • BIMBLE.7952BIMBLE.7952 Member ✭✭

    Still not fixed. Great work. Just great.

  • BIMBLE.7952BIMBLE.7952 Member ✭✭

    Still being spammed by Ele dagger skill #1 from across the map and behind objects!!! They KNOW that this bug is an exploit and the opposing faction in WvW are spamming the hell out of it!

    At the very least, any Ele that spent a considerable time in WvW following this game-breaking patch should have ALL WXP, gained during this time, removed!! If it was me, I would give them a one week ban!!

    FIX THIS NOW!! ABSOLUTELY FUMING!!!

    elem is a magic wizard, and this nice feature make some fun for people.
    Don't be toxic. Be happy that some people get some nice moment from specific class.

    Hi all, I've been checking on this for you and just heard that we're working on a fix for this and will have it to you ASAP.

    Good. Roll back WxP for any Elementalist logged in for hours during this time. I would ban them for 1 week.

    Our server had a great battle with the team that is now abusing this (although, naturally, not all and good on them) and this has brought their server into disrepute and spoiled a great match-up. It has also allowed them to dominate as our side mass-logged out.

    I also have a Ele and refused to exploit this. I play fair. I play for fun and the challenge. Some people (above) think it's fun to exploit and get cowardly kills and, think it toxic to complain about it.

    I hope it's quick because I just can't play in WvW, until it's fixed...

  • BIMBLE.7952BIMBLE.7952 Member ✭✭

    Fire Attunement.9835 thank you so much for informing us. I do hope it's today...

    Take care.

  • Just saw someone dying inside SMC to this. This is not fun. Thanks for trying to fix it quickly.

    Each of the Underwold server elems that abuse of this I report as Spamming, I hope Anet will check their profession and skill spam and ban them accordingly.

    The joke is its still a bad skill every thing on ele dagger is bad lol.

    See ELE forms and you will get my views.

  • Yeah early in the morning some friends and I made a party to hunt these ppl, and once they have someone in their face they run away scared. Oh the free bags.

    Yep, canceled our daily WvW raid today due to the other side abusing this bug.(that's about 30-40 people on our side that can't play in WvW because we refuse to abuse the skill or contend with it) Nearly every one on the Green side was on an Ele using the Impale skill. They know it's broken so they deserve a ban for a week or so.

    By 'any' Ele I assume you mean any that played WvW, had a dagger equipped and spammed it endlessly... assuming that anet can easily identify such players and avoid scoping up those that did no such thing.

    For example, I main an Ele in WvW but use a Staff, so no such 'bug exploit' for me, as I sure don't want my WxP rolled back or to be banned for a week.....

    But lets face it, we all know anet won't do anything to those using it, especially not in WvW. There is maybe an off chance that anyone who totally abuses the cr*p out of it in current ranked PvP, may get some action against, but I won't hold my breath.

  • Ya'll need to relax and take it down several notches... It'll get fixed. ;)

    Ele off hand foce skill Comet seem to be buged as well as it can be used at much longer ranged then 900. Its still a bad skill but a bug is a bug.

    The answer is to disable it until it is fixed. When banners were being dropped by the hundreds in LA , Banners were disabled. What does this say about WvW/PvP?

    Yes but it's not just ele dagger, there are several other skills out there that are broken like this so it's not an easy disable.

    The saddest part is that it's high levels players exploiting it Gold and above, Henge Of Denravi players have been super obvious about it in my skirmish. Game mode not even worth playing like this.

    Toxic?! Are you being serious or just trolling?

    It is not MEANT to be this way! Tagging your enemy then running and hiding in a building and spamming#1 until they're dead is cowardly play and annoying as hell! People with your outlook should not even game...move along!!

    Make some fun for people... Unbelievable!!

    I honestly don't know if it's trolling or legitimately serious. I think he might be serious based on other posts from him, and supposedly win trading is totally fine etc. There's no way Ele Earth 1 impale should be functioning the way it does now, it was always meant to be a short ranged single target skill .

  • Thank you!!!

  • Thank you for the fix!!

  • thank the lord.

    I am an ele from Hod and didnt exploited it like many others did.. on each servers. That was annoying but nothing compare to any thieves or rangers killing u with a 2-4 skills "rotation". Some class are broken since forever but as soon as ele's get 1 broken skill the whole community panic! :o

    Whew, Elementalist almost became playable for a second! Gotta drive that usage back down to its absolutely abysmal level.
    For real, glad this got fixed.
    But how about fixing grenade engineers hitting for 15k from stealth (or not from stealth. They shouldn't be able to hit this hard period)? Or how about fixing Elementalist class in general? There is a reason you hardly see any around. Maybe its time to look at that extremely long list of nerfs that were intended to balance weaver damage and made the rest of the class almost unplayably bad?

    I was talking about the numbers of skills used, so yeah, 2 skills I guess for u since its ur main :/

  • Devs, thank you for addressing this bug as quickly as you did. It is greatly appreciated even if many players are apparently incapable of expressing that.

    You use this to complain that a Ranger has killed you? An idea: get better! Not trying to insult or antagonise; it's a fact, mate...

    And how is it even close to a Ele shooting THROUGH walls...?

    Anyhow,, thanks to the Devs.... this was infuriating.

    ...What are you even talking about? If you're still angry over something they already fixed...And it's probably a notification to, you know, notify that the problem has been acknowledged and fixed.
