    What happened to Sorcery?

    Post by Ghadis_God on Mon Apr 01, 2013 5:21 pm

    I know this thread comes rather late, but I've noticed it as a serious recurring problem across time, place, and toon, and this isn't a thread complaining about Dark Magic (Sponsored by Flemmings Magic Shop - 5 New Locations). This is affecting normal sorcery, and it's driving me crazy. About every half of Magic (Sponsored by Flemmings Magic Shop - 5 New Locations) users I fight, their Magic (Sponsored by Flemmings Magic Shop - 5 New Locations) is laggy as hell. And not in the usual way, where you would sometime get a poor connection prepatch. Ever since patch 1.06, I have noticed a considerable lag spike for sorcery casting, most notable HSM and CHSM. I visually dodge these spells on my screen, only to be hit with invisible Magic (Sponsored by Flemmings Magic Shop - 5 New Locations) shortly after. It makes fighting any caster a matter of luck rather than skill- do any of you have the same problem with the vanilla sorceries in terms of lag?

    I do at times. I can recall a few times where I've even dodged a CSS before getting hit in the face with a ton of invisimagic famage

    Magic (Sponsored by Flemmings Magic Shop - 5 New Locations) has always been that way, there just seems to be more PVPers using Magic (Sponsored by Flemmings Magic Shop - 5 New Locations) so it only seems worse.

    I believe Magic (Sponsored by Flemmings Magic Shop - 5 New Locations) recently had an update on it, fixing a few things such as tracking and stuff, and due to this, the game no longer recognizes Magic (Sponsored by Flemmings Magic Shop - 5 New Locations) the way it used to. Look at Homing Soul Mass. Pre-patch it went in a straight line to its target, currently it has a slight curve to it. Same with Soul Arrow variations, more tracking. To solve it, simply dodge twice.

    It hasn't always been that way. Prepatch I could dodge those spells 100% if there was no serious lag. Now it's 60-70% at best in normal conditions.

    The same thing has been happening to me, but I haven't really noticed it until last week.

    I don't really try to do anything to fix it since I don't care about my fights against magic-heavy builds, so I sadly can't give you any advice.

    Magic ALWAYS lag hits for me.The only solution is to roll a quarter-second after you see them cast.I've even been hit by CSS through about six trees forming a wall in the forest.Also,if you look,every tracking spell goes in more or less a straight line on your screen,yet it can hit you almost anywhere in front of the caster while you are strafing.

    Roll twice, you should avoid it.

    "Roll twice" works against CSS and dark bead. But I don't know when the soulmasses actually go off and when they appear to go off. The activation of the spell on my screen has no relation to when it actually goes off and hits me.

    Learn the firing distance and roll as you hear the sound.Invincibility frames will handle the rest.

    I've been having similar problems to Ghadis. The sound even occurs after getting hit.

    honestly i havent had that as much as i used to for me its been easier to dodge all the magic (though ill admit i may have a wierd connection at times so maybe its that) though my spells never hit so idk take with a grain of salt.

    Magic

    What is this Flemmings shop thing? I thought it must be a filter, but apparently not.

    Maybe it was only for April Fool's, which is apparently over judging by the side-banners. Even though it is still April 1st over here in civilization.
