Glaive Blind

Postby rylan » Wed Dec 24, 2003 9:01 pm

Can somebody take a look at the blind proc on the Glaive from seelie? Looks like it has that same 'delayed effect' problem that other spell effects had.
Here is a quick snippet of a mob switchinog after being blinded:

Don't all, or nearly all, spells take effect the following round?

Seems that way to me.

They've fixed quite a few of them, particularly silence and some forms of para and stone/scales and other effects so they happen that instant. Seems that there is a chunk of code subroutine or something that gets referenced commonly with spell effects, and then there is the 'tweaked' one that takes effect instantly.

Dunno if this is the same issue, but i just put on a WB item, then moved south and got the msg, you would surely drown, then i moved south again and could do it fine. (there was around 5 sec from i wore wb item to the you would surely drown msg)

Maybe something is funky with that mob, cuz I thought PWB was fixed so it takes effect instantly?

Sequester does this too. You can be summoned shortly after you get it. Might be a linger from mob started casting, you got seq, it finished, but it does happen. HAve seen it 2x in last 24 hours.

You'd think a cyclops would be easier to blind.

Been seeing this a lot lately where the mob would switch immediately after the glaive blind proc landed. Here are a couple more log snippets of it:

Also change this to something that isn't a glaive, I find it hard to believe someone can dual-wield polearms.
