Shadow Portal bug

Sometimes when using the second part of [Prepare Shadow Portal] the portal doesn't spawn and it goes on full cool-down without giving an out of range message,im not quite sure what causes the bug to happen o.o

Comments

  • quick update,after some testing it seems to be caused by the shadow portal's exit point not properly spawning before the skill flips over

    Yeah, I’ve noticed the same thing and is definitely not to do with being out of range.

    Visibility here doesn't matter. Reporting the bug either on the bug forum, or better yet, using the in-game reporting tool are the best ways to get a quick resolution.

    This is an existing issue from sword 2, if you cast the recall and the skill flips over mid cast it will fail to port you back. Odds are it's due to how the skills are coded as flip skills, not sure if there's an easy fix beyond not using it right at the last second.

    Awesome, thanks. The more bug reports, the more likely we are to see a fix. =D

    All preparations do seem to have a very tiny chance to fail to arm but also, mounting up will completely prevent a preparation from arming (unless you dismount in time)

    I've had PvP games where my portals kept failing all game, I haven't done enough testing to figure out why. I've noticed it fails on certain map more often than others but I don't have enough data.

    Ye I have to confirm that, for me maybe not failing all game, but it certainly did fail quite a few times while being within range when both Exit and Entre were placed on perfectly accessible spots

    You can carry a revenant or a soulbeast through the portal with you, just like mes portal. Too bad, we cant just dump them off there and portal back lol.

    Still a funny way to just remove them from a fight tho. Porting a rev into the centre of your zerg is priceless ^^

  • If you let the portal expire without activating it, it'll fail the next time you try to cast it.

    I'm not sure if this has been talked about, and apologies if it has.

    When preparing shadow portal and then entering water, and re-emerging and hit land, the portal goes on full CD. say... (Laying down shadow portal in Dragon Bay Keep, just as enemy server takes it, then swim over to the other side, thinking you'll be able to portal back into inner bay, and to your surprise, full CD)

    Did you have Shadow Portal as an underwater skill as well?

    He didn't, because it's literally impossible to slot it for the "underwater bar".

    Correct, it was a jab pal

    https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Trap - Mechanics are the same, if you remove the skill from the bar, which underwater does, the trap disappears.
