Necromancer skills are not working properly


Recommended Posts

While playing as a Necromancer (primarily Reaper and Harbinger), I have noticed that the number one skill in the first weapon set does not work properly. Since I use a combination of weapons, the problem is always with the first weapon skill. However, this never happens once I weapon swap and use the second set. Everything works perfectly fine. Posted below are a few examples to help clarify the matter.

 

When using Scepter, the three-skill chain fails to connect. Blood Curse (skill 1) and Rending Curse (skill 2) work properly. But the third skill Putrid Curse stalls and nothing happens. I rapidly click the skill icon to complete the sequence.

 

Now the Staff has its share of problems. Necrotic Grasp (skill 1) is an auto-attack ability. After pressing the skill button, a projectile will emerge from the weapon once and then stop. If I want to send several projectiles, then I must repeatedly tap the button.

 

Next is the Pistol. Vicious Shot (skill 1) is an auto-attack ability which fires a single bullet and then completely stops. To shoot multiple bullets, I must repeat the same steps as listed above.

 

Here is the part where all of this seems strange. I also play other professions (Ranger and Guardian to be exact) and have never experienced this type of problem. For some reason or another, this issue only applies to the Necromancer.

 

I have no idea why this is happening or how the problem even started. Hopefully, there is a solution because it is very frustrating trying to play the game right now.

This is all on the same account, correct? So having different targeting choices in Options isn't a factor? And you're not using the first-person mode (whatever it is called) on one and not the other?

[update] I just tested scepter and staff, and both worked as expected. The only time I needed to restart the staff autoattack was when the monster ran past me and I had to turn to face it. I'm not clicking the skill, just starting the auto and letting it run.

I do seem to remember this happening I believe with Engineer Flamethrower, but I just did a bunch of toe-to-toe autos with it, and it never stopped attacking.

That sounds like you disabled auto use on all those skills or you moved it to a different skill with control+right click. When enabled there are arrows on the skill's border(if there is also a lock symbol then you have set a skill to auto use but the function doesn't work with that particular skill).

Thank you both for taking the time to post a response.

 

After logging into the game, I realized what happened. I accidentally disabled the auto-attack function on those skills. Turns out it was just a minor mistake on my part. Thanks once again for bringing that to my attention, I appreciate it very much.
