Settings are not saving. I can turn aura on (so I can see them properly) and BMG off (cus I don't wanna hear it) and it lasts until I reload the client where it keeps simplified auras on and BG music on....only been a problem since the patch.
Character Name: Rune Lord of Sanctity
Class: Royal Guard
Skills: Earth Drive & Cannon Spear.
When casting Earth drive, I arbitrarily deal no damage. I can run into a mob, cast and hit everything 5 times. Sometimes, I'll cast, hit everything 4 times (this is somewhat rare and may just be me missing one sound effect due to mobs overwhelming the hit sounds) and the third and most annoying thing is that I often won't deal any damage at all. I have to MOVE and hope it works properly (sometimes it doesn't and sometimes I can't move due to the mobs size).
In short, Earth Drive is sometimes giving 4 hits and sometimes not hitting at all (even if it worked fine 2 seconds before when I last cast it).
Cannon Spear often refuses to hit anything at all. It never hits anything at the extent of it's range (the 11th cell) and misses monsters far too often to be feasible.
Example 1: I see a monster, it is 7 cells away. I cast cannon spear. Nothing. No miss. Just- nothing. As though I never cast the skill. I am forced to reposition to attempt to cast again. *edit* I tested this in south pront just now. I was unable to kill a poring because the skill simply did not hit the monster. It was the only monster being targeted and there was no 'miss' to show I missed. I merely cast the skill, spent the sp and failed to hit the target in any way. The poring was 4-5 cells away and I missed no fewer than 3 times in a row before a second poring moved near, and one of the two died. The other poring, though being caught in the aoe, suffered no effect.
Example 2: I see a monster. It is 7 cells away and I cast Cannon Spear. I miss. I repeat this process 5-7 times, and hit once. I cease using cannon spear and use normal melee attacks. I hit every time, all the time, until I die or the monster does. This is applicable to monsters lower level than me as well. My character has more than 80 dex. *edit* in south prontera I tested and speared a lunatic and poring that were side by side. The lunatic (my initial target) died, but the poring survived and was not hit at all. Being level 114 with more than 80 dex and missing a poring sounds buggy to me.
Example 3: I see a monster on the edge of my screen. I approach a couple of cells so that we are both still out of range. I cast Cannon Spear and walk forward automatically, to the skills maximum targeting range (11 cells). I do not hit the target (this is aside from how the skill misses on things within its range). *edit* I just tested this on a poring several times and missed every last time until it was under 11 cells range. I never got a 'miss'. I got the animation, sound effect, and pleasure of spending SP to do it though.
*last edit* I just tested Spear cannon on multiple porings and was unable to hit no fewer than five different porings on the map. As this has been happening everywhere I level, I am now certain it's the skill and not any possible super monster buff from players. /swt
