    This bug has been around for a long time. For example, when you are in a jungle terrain or rough terrain, sometimes when you target your self with chain lighting or meteor swarm it says "target cannot be seen". Which can be problematic if you needed those little guys around you to die.

    These spels are designed to do ALOT of damage not to be used to target yourself, and kill or hit monsters around you.

    This is abused in PvP to hit / find stealthers and therefore any chance at targeting yourself with these spells should be removed all together.

    If oyu need to target monster arond you use the targeting system and get the bar of the closest enemy.

    Happens to arch cure as well, esp on uneven terrains.

    Since it works on flat terrain, I'm guessing that it's a z-axis bug. Would be nice if the devs can take a look.

    I have noticed the same with arch cure, pretty frustrating sometimes.

    Abused? I wouldn't say that.
    It seems these are intended to hit the area they are targetting, no 'abuse' about it.

    I use it all the time to hit guys around me, or target a dexer ally that is covered in spawn. Seems legit to me.

    As for not being able to target self, this hasn't happened to me.

    This has been around for awhile. I figured it's a minor bug and can be quite annoying at times, but I'd rather they focus on bigger things TBH.

    Yes, arch cure seems to be the one that always fails on target self. Esp in the Tok spawn area it happens alot to me. It does suck
