View Full Version : Sybil's Shuddering Sonnet bugged?

Anyone notice that Sybil's seems to disappear after 1-2 seconds when cast? I recently upgraded it to Adept 1 - thinking that the app1 was why it kept falling off so quickly - but even on green cons it disappears quickly.

i think it is related to the other abilities you use on them. Have you tried to just cast it and doing nothing else?

<DIV>Same thing happens to me when I use this ability on something it will stay on if i dont hit it but as soon as I hit it comes off so i guess it only works for adds?</DIV>

<DIV>Not sure it's bugged, but it's totally useless right now.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Have it to App2 and it only snare a bit (really a bit...despite the fact i'm using Pathfinding) and take out...waouh...10 (yes you read well), 10 power points from the enemy.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Can't understand what's the interest in giving people this kind of abilitys.</DIV>

<DIV>Do you find that it drops faster when in a group? I get the feeling that other abilities used by group mates can cancel it out, because it stays up for the duration if I use it when solo.</DIV>

<DIV>Since dirty tricks greys out when you use it (and vice versa) any time someone in group uses dirty tricks (ie constantly, if you have scouts in group, if only to advance HO) it will be wiped off. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I made a bard in part because I wanted to become an expert power-drainer.  I am not very impressed so far.  I have yet to find a mob we fight where I can drain even a noticeable about of power before it is dead.  Lore's snapping + this sonnet + walts blade and no visible reduction, until the mob uses a special and drains their own.  </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>So when do troubadours actually get a useful power drain? </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

About when you get Power Swindle it becomes very noticeble. Keep in mind, you're not going to want to drain in normal ++ battles. Only named and raid type mobs really deserve it. Or when you're out there soloing the green ++'s. Lore's is NOT useful for power drain purposes, same with Sybil's. You'll usually end up using Sandra's and Power Swindle in the midling levels (and you can use Lore's in combination with Sandra's in an HO if you're feeling lucky).Later on there's a Taffo replacement that also does power drain on the back stab. Generally, once you start to level, every other ability we have is either X and adds agility, or X and drains power.
