  2. If that dev had any sense of class he'd fix the bug causing trapped dart box's to lose targets when used...

    BUT only when you have legendary resist?

    Don't think it was a bug. Really looks intentional to me, like they wanted to balance APBs.

    Imho, unfortunately, this weakens mages more than others. Warriors use alot less targeting spells compared to mages. Yeah, I know, counterpoint is that warriors don't cast paralyze. But still...

    Set up a retarget macro. Unsure what'd be best, but a simple, target nearest hostile should usually work.

    I think you misunderstood me miner.

    I was laughing at the person asking the question.

    Goes to show the reliance some people have on items and i have to actually say kudos to the reply!

    Almost all my pvp chars have 120resist so, although i keep them on me for the obvious omen para gank, i rarely need to use them.

    Good it was intended to be light-hearted. I liked the response too. Not that we don't take each question seriously, but sometimes we just like to have fun ....

    I was so hoping my trap box question would soon follow which was

    "In the Past. Magic Trap Pouches were used to brake Paralyzing effects. This was considered an unfair advantage and the Developers at the time increased the damage of the Magic Trap spell to address and deter the abuse.

    In todays PvP, Tinker Trap Boxes are used in the similar manner.

    Trap boxes were not ment for this function and are highly abused in PvP. Are there any plans to address this problem?"

    Ya, I couldn't believe that question was even asked.

    Does a trap box just take off the war flag like chiv's cure or does it reset last target too though? Because whenever you do damage to yourself you should lose your target but targeting yourself shouldn't change last target ... lol either way, it's a funny question from that guy, and however it is I agree it has to be intentional or a mechanic.
