Collecting orbs at the dhuum is worse now

I used to be able to collect orbs 100% of the time. Now it's very unpredictable, sometimes the orbs just fly right through me.... Anyone else feels it's worse now after anet "fixed" the issue to make orb collecting easier? I have max 50 ping with no packet loss

    Didn't feel any different from before the patch when I did orbs yesterday. Usually I'd get them, sometimes they (mostly the big ones, which is particularly annoying) would just fly through me as if nothing happened. Imho, the orb thing makes Dhuum the worst raid boss in GW2. Just don't design stuff that way when you know (as Ben admitted on Reddit) that the engine can't properly handle it.

    Praise delta!

    I hope they never recycle this mechanic to anything in future... it's definitely not a fan favorite

    Collecting orbs is definitely my least favorite mechanic in all 5 raid wings.

    I also have the feeling it got worse a little bit .... (maybe just being paranoid here though xD)

    But at least it didnt feel improved so if Anet wanted to improve it then they need to change something about it again

    I heard it suggested that you should lay off the movement keys when you hit an orb in order to give the server time to synch.

  • Hey now, they only said they made orbs more consistent, it's just that its consistently worse.

  • Yeah what Ben said. Small orbs are fine for the most part, but the big ones are insane now. Used to be perfectly fine. Pls if you have backup, revert to the old behavior.

    I've got a fix queued that makes the big orbs same as before, but better. For now pretend the big orbs are small orbs since the hitbox is the same.

    Same same but different :3

    Just a reminder for anyone else feeling similarly nervous about doing greens (I know your fine now Talindra). You can solo stealth your way to the first green circle event, so it is possible for players to practice this mechanic in their solo time:

    Also for complete beginners, greens are pretty much the exact same no matter which reaper you go up at. I.e go left and get the big one, then get surrounding small ones.

    Edit: left being left while facing the inner of the circle. Also called clockwise or negative using right hand rule with up as positive.
