    Exclamation Ranged Autoattack switching off whilst moving! plus BUGGED Ranged Autoattack

    Hi,

    As a Ranger/Marksman I spend an awful lot of points improving the damage of my autoattack, yet I discover today when I was testing specs that I stop autoattacking with my bow when I start moving!

    This seems highly unfair and potentially bugged when you can quite happily melee autoattck and move at the same time!

    This bug? also effects mage wands...

    Also more rare but very testable - sometimes ranged autoattack switches itself off entirely for no valid reason... standing still at a practice dummy, not moving - firing away and half way through a 2 or 3 minute assult ranged auto attack stops firing COMPLETELY!

    It's not a bug. There's a Marksman ability that explicitly allows you to auto attack while moving, so we can safely assume that it's intended.

    Bombs turn off auto attack I believe. Rather annoying, and yeah it can be a rather significant DPS loss if you don't realize it since you'll lose the auto attacks plus poison procs.

    There is no such ability! So can we safely assume it's not working as intended? ie BUGGED!

    This isn't a bug. Ranged auto attacks don't fire while moving. It's like that in pretty much every other MMO known to man. And yes there is a Marksman cooldown that allows ranged auto attacks to fire while moving for 15 seconds. It's called Hit and Run. It's the 14 point skill.

    Yep, Hit and Run.

    A maneuver that allows the execution of ranged Auto Attacks while moving, causes Empowered Shot and Deadeye Shot to become instant cast and causes Empowered Shot to have no cooldown. Lasts 15 seconds. This ability does not trigger global cooldown.

    In one post, you've managed to bring out the worst in capitalization, punctuation and spelling.

    Bah... I stand corrected...

    Seems a tad unfair melee can move and auto without using a 15sec ability every 2 mins

    Not really.

    Melee suffers this bug where if you stand within melee range while the boss does an pbaoe, your screen turns grey, and you cant move nor attack.

    No, you're not supposed to autoattack while moving, however there is most definitely a bug with autoattack nonetheless. Not only ranged, but melee as well. Numerous times I've noticed during parsing whilst attacking the dummy, or at other times, that my autoattack simply isn't on and I have to unclick and reclick the enemy to get it to resume.

    Don't forget to support Dual Targeting in SWTOR and Prime Online.
    We didn't get it here, but perhaps we can help make the next games into what they should be.
