    Default Soul Drain Bugged?

    Hi, I'm playing my cleric alt in PVP warfronts, and noticed that I seem to be bugged. Whenever I cast Soul Drain, no numbers appear above the enemy and nothing appears in the combat log window. Meanwhile other spells like Vex, Circle of Oblivion are working fine.

    Is this a known issue, or could it be just me that is bugged?

    Thanks

    It is a ~melee range pbAE.

    thanks a lot! -- I think that is the answer.

    I don't know if it's the simplified tooltips, but the in game description is not clear on that (it says damages "nearby" enemies but doesn't mention near to the caster or near to the target).

    So cheers for the reply!

    Tooltips (or lack of) strike again.

    We need these sort of threads to point out to Trion just what a mess they are making of tooltips. Mark my words, there will be many more.

    Another strike against Trion's "Simplify the tooltips" that turned in to "Tooltips are now Useless" instead.

    Just to be even more clear, SD doesn't require a target.

    I 'think' the old tooltip used to say 7m radius of the cleric (max 3 mobs), then 7m radius of each mob hit (max 4 mobs per mob).

    It is classed as a non target, pbAE and also classified as melee range for other talent purposes but is a spell for other talent purposes.

    It not requiring a target is the reason you will see it gets no benefit from HC/aPA/Fury of the Ascended.

    Why do people keep disliking your posts? Most are perfectly nice! Anyway souldrain requires you to be very near to enemies. (hinting why I loved druid stoneburst so much) Then you can get some massive aoe spell damage on em.

    I have no idea.

    There seems to be the same 9 people following me around and instantly disliking anything I say.
    I wouldn't be surprised if even this post gets jumped on by them as soon as I post it. Sad really 'cause I mean no harm.

    Trion's new tooltip for spells are something like:

    "Does something"
    Raelyn <The Granite Guard> R40 Warrior @ Seastone
    Tomoka <The Granite Guard> R40 Cleric @ Seastone
