    Default [BUG] Strafe ending early on High Priest Arakhurn

    Anyone else having strafe ending early and/or on movement for this fight? Bugging out for me even if I don't move sometimes.

    strafe usually hits a specific part of the enemy model eg. head.

    If the target is large enough and rotates away from u in a certain direction, strafe will break due to the range difference even if the target appears stationary.

    Phoenix will never rotate unless something has gone horribly, horribly wrong.

    I only ever encountered it while trying to move.. Never saw it fail in any other way, was specifically movement cancelling it..

    i.e. strafe while dodging ground fire it cancelled etc.

    Was lame! ;_; Waste my OP Crystal Buff!

    Protip: Don't use Strafe with this buff. Strafe canceling probably increased your DPS. A single Quick Shot hits almost as hard as the entire Strafe channel when you have the crystal. I have no idea why.

    Best thing you can do with this crystal is make absolutely sure you can RFS -> Quick Reload -> RFS -> Crit Deadeye, and by then it should be over (if you can even get that many finishers) RFS hits like... so hard it is unbelievable.

    Only used Strafe because I saw the ground aoe spawn under me..

    but it cancelled the channel anyway.. so yeah I guess..

    Never noticed strafe hitting less then quick shot with the crystal, might need to pay attention to that next week =/

    strafe almost always cancels when you cast it at max range, for example on stingers in akylios fight. huge pain in the ***.

    Hmm, maybe it's because he is so high up. I was having the problem even when closer in. All but like two or three times was when I was moving. Good to know about the crystal buff thing, thanks.

    When I have the crystal, Strafe crits for like 4k on a tick, but Quick crits for like 15k, and RFS crits for like 14k each hit.

    I haven't had the pleasure yet of running RoTP, so I don't know if this is relevant. But any break in LoS will end Strafe as well.

    I miss the old Strafe. Ignored LoS breaks and distance.
