View Full Version : Charm broken badly

<DIV>While charm has great potential, there is a very nasty bug, that will get us killed quickly.</DIV> <DIV>Once a mob is charmed, it gains ALL group buffs. When charm breaks, the mob retains the buffs, including our high MR and mental resists. This gets us killed fast!</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>This means we must waste time casting dispell, sometimes multiple times to remove these buffs. Even then, it still seems they retain some of them.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>The other issue is that charmed mobs seem to very rarely use specials. If I charm a caster, I expect it to chain cast. Usually, they just melee..<img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>

Also, if you dispel the group buffs that the charmed mob gained, after charm wears off, it dispels all the groups buffs as well.

It was never fixed as far as i know. As soon as I charm a mob while i am grouped with others, it instantly "loses" life. Its actually gaining the priest buffs and getting about 20% more max HP.  As soon as I nuke the former pet the first time it uses the spell ward built into the group buff we have, and it has insane mitigation vs my spells until i debuff it with gloom, despair, and ravaged psyche, and you can watch your ward thing regen every tick even though you werent nuked.  Sometimes i can watch a clerics reactive heal be repeatedly triggered on a former pet as well, I dont know if this is coming from a group reactive heal or something else that happened right before charm broke, but i do know that my former pet isn't a cleric mob when i see this.

Nothing angered me more than dispelling an ex-charmed mob and seeing it dispel some our group's concentration buffs. <div></div>

yeah I don't have experience with this due to my low level but I hope they fix it in the upcoming patch, I also think a longer charm time would be sweet....oh by the way does app1 charm have same time as master 1? like do they keep a monster charmed for same max amount of time?
