    Default General Typhiria in Tower of the Shattered expert bug

    It's oneshot green line ray seems to have a display issue. It can sometimes point in wrong direction and then fire off opposite way and sometimes does not appear at all causing even wipes sometimes if the healer is hit.

    I was doing this the other day and a melee mage was standing at max melee range behind the boss. The graphic for the green rectangle went toward the tank, which was exactly opposite from the mage, and the mage got 1 shot. This happened twice to him.

    We killed the boss without issue, but it definitely seemed squirrely.

    The simple fix would be "don't get out of the way behind the boss."

    It happens.

    I'm guessing whatever is bugging the same skill in TDQ is also bugging the skill in the expert as well. It's the same graphic and animation. And yeah, when I melee her off to the side a bit, I don't have any issues.

    Nothing really different than multiple cleave animations also doing a similar attack in the opposite direction. Seen it on Prince Kaliban in xEC and Crucia's Lightning Breath to name two.

    Similar thing has happen to myself and many guildies. It's not just melee either. It will go at least 25m behind her, even though the animation (ground target) faces to the tank.

    The rectangle AoE is known to target a different player than it appears to, so it shoots in a completely different direction from the graphic. This happens in both the expert and the 10-man. The solution is for everyone to be moving as it casts regardless if it appears on you.

    While in the 10 it happens in a predictable time window when everyone can run around in expert it happens randomly during the fight and running around just is not an option.
    And yes the mess in the target of animation occurs even if everyone but tank is at range.

    It doesn't happen randomly in the Expert. Typheria has an extremely predictable rotation.

    It does happen in Expert. I've run this dungeon a good 50 times. Once in a blue moon, she will bug out. I don't know if it's someone using certain abilities, or certain class, or pets, or bad tank.. no idea, but it does happen.

    There's always a cast bar for Storm Blast

    He didn't say it didn't happen. He said it didn't *randomly* happen. Meaning it is very easy to predict and adjust accordingly.

    I don't get what side are you on
    I am not telling there is no workaround with this bug. Certainly there is a cast bar and you can see which player she holds as a target. Yes there is a rotation so you can approximately predict when this will happen.

    But all this actions are not intended. And intended mechanic is definitely bugged and needs fixing.

    There are no sides, it is both extremely bugged, and easily worked around.

    Shouldn't really matter for Trion whether there is a work around. Just fix it and everyone is happy.
