View Full Version : strange random unexplainable proccing?

<DIV>I've been noticing something strange over the past week or so - probably since about the big patch went through...</DIV> <DIV>Am currently 28 troubador - used to use Aria's so I'm familiar with how it worked. Whenever it procced, there was a little explosion that emanated around the target. Since the patch, this still happens, but I don't see any proc messages.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Here's the strange thing, and I wonder if anyone else has noticed:</DIV> <DIV>I stopped using Aria's completely ( replaced it with mana). My song lineup is Rousing tune, Raxyl, mana, and merciless. Oddly enough, I am still seeing random proccing occurring on my targets. More importantly, every time it happens, my power bar dips slightly (as if each proc sucks my power out).</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Anyone else notice this, or can explain it? I'm just dualwielding normal steel rapiers (nothing special there). This is occurring on normal mobs (normal crabs in Thundering Steppes). Am I missing something or am I getting random unexplainable proccing?</DIV>

<DIV>This proc-ing you are seeing is the lovely "benefit" of Elises Ditty. That chance you get to interrupt casters comes at the </DIV> <DIV>price of your power. I do not know if this is intended or not, but it really makes the song unusable in some situations. Otherwise its a nice little song. I posted earlier today in a different forum if a Dev could verify if the power usage on the proc is intended or not. If its intended, I would love to hear the justification. If I cast an interrupt spell (because I see my target casting) and I consume power, thats fine. Its not fine to randomly take my power away when it may or not not be beneficial at all when I (and I'll bet most Troubs) use the song primarily for the added Agility benefit.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>If you are not using Elises and notice this happening, I really don't know what it could be. I have not noticed it. Upon thinking about it, I think you are right about not getting a proc message from Aria though- I figured they had just "tuned" the already miserable proc rate.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Rhutt</DIV> <DIV>Troubador on Highkeep</DIV>
