    Has anyone metioned it and when will it be fixed, ive tried it alot of times and if the lightning goes off than the actual armor ignore does not, but it still ais if the lightning does not trigger.

    I think its only fair that when Im casting lightning and you AI me MY lightning doesnt go off either.... Someone else mentioned this reguarding AI in general (not just archery) & If I remember right a DEV responded to it.

    A dev (Misk I think), said they could not reproduce the bug.

    Wasnt too hard for me to reproduce, just go out and ai a wondering healer with a bow with lightning on it and it happens. Every other spell always works though like fireball stuff like that and i havent noticed it with melee , only on bows with lightning and only ever since the patch.

    It is with any weapon. Any time you do an AI and the hit lightning goes off the AI damage doesn't go through. It has been a problem since the publish it.

    No, it is not intended. Anyone who says that is how it is supposed to work needs to close their forum account.

    Heh.. I was indeed joking Lynk. Dr. Venk & I are 2 of 4 Whole PvPers left on Sonoma. I'm pretty much always on my scribe Mage and Venk is on his Archer / Bushido character so I was just teasing him. Thanks for the confirmation about it being a well known problem though. I thought I'd seen it mentioned before but this is only the 2nd time & as I've been playing a mage in PvP 100% of the time for awhile now I hadn't noticed this bug myself.

    I know man and the worst part is ive tried to play atl so many times but its hard going from pinging 14 on sonoma to pinging 250 on atl, i know other people play with high pings there but i just cant do it man my macros lag my screen freezes if its not fun than why even do it right. Ive gotten used to just fighting the same few left on sonoma all the time anyways. And im hoping on people transferring to sonoma thinking they can farm because ill be pking them lol.

    Discuss with me the PVP on Sonoma. What happened to WAKA, COP, PAIN or whoever else? I need an exact count of pvpers on that shard because I have recently gave some thought into bringing 4 pvpers to Sonoma.

    Well unfortunately its alot like peon says, not many left on sonoma. I would say maybe 4 or 5 pvpers and honestly theres not much of a pvp scene at all i mean if you came to sonoma you would be able to pk alot of farmers because there is alot of farmers and of course youd be able to fight me and peon and bear or blossom dom. There isnt any waka left, no scam, im in TB with bear and peon is in cop with one of his friends and we pretty much just fight each other sometimes but like i said there isnt much here. Although i am sure if you brought pvpers here, idk things may pick up.

    I know there used to be an issue with a hit spell and slayer damage. Figure this is the same type of bug.

    I don't know if this has always been or is intended, but I just imbued a bow with fireball, velocity, SSI, hit mana leech and dragon slayer and when I tested it on greater dragons, dragons and drakes, if the velocity hits, no damage is done by the hit, i.e, numbers will come up like 27 and 7 which is for velocity and fireball but none for normal damage. Then if normal damage comes up, it's a single number or with fireball, but never the 3 together.
