    Default Finally THE caster fix

    * PvP combat: Abilities now only check for caster facing their target at the start of a cast - they will still land if a target moves behind you while the casting is in progress.

    This is exactly what I suggested a couple of times. Thank you for this!

    I assume this applies to melee too? Or are we forced to turn while easymode mages can just faceroll their buttons?

    Don't know why I posed that as a question, no one here knows and if they do they probably can't tell.

    Maybe you should re read that? melee abilities are all instant and so require you to be facing your target only when you hammer the button. Now mages have been changed to this way aswell: you have to be facing your target when you hammmer the button but not 2s later when it actually fires off.

    Casters need to stand still to cast, I would prefer if melee and ranged had the same issue but Trion decided that they don't. But this change is good since the exploit of walking through a character is no longer a viable.
    I don't like mean people, rude people and people who are not nice.

    Yeah.. this change is so lame, the people who couldn't get a cast off before this shouldn't be playing.

    melee is losing the easy mode while be being very deadly to casters. Why the outrage melee, does this nerf your "skill" ??

    to every sad sack out there who thinks this is an injustice or unfair *nerf*
    get over yourself

    playing a class with all of your abilities instant cast doesnt give you a disadvantage

    the *ability* to run through someone at the last moment of their cast isnt skill, you cant turn your character around to face some jumping idiot as fast as you can just run through someone as they are casting while mashing your buttons,

    with all of the insane amount of CC already in this game, if you cant use that to counter casters, well your just bad to start, this is gonna make it rough for you

    awesome fix, cant wait
