    Default AOE Targeting and Staffing

    When I hit Firestorm as a Mage the big yellow circle appears. I can not strafe anymore while targeting with that yellow circle. Why not?

    I've posted about this in the rogue forums as well, it's a issue for sure.. it does it on a lot of items and abilities.

    My rogue can use shadow warp just fine, more detail would help.

    Is it only attack skills?

    What are some actual skills that have this problem?

    Example for Mage is Fire Storm targeting active (the big yellow circle). I strafe a lot more than I thought and this is annoying.

    fire storm is a channeled ability with a cast bar
    you must remain flat footed to maintain the cast
    you can turn 360deg on the spot while doing it but not take a step as it will interrupt the channel

    I know you have to stay still while casting. The problem is not being able to strafe while targeting. It is a problem that need to be addressed.

    Yes I was going to post this. It's weird...it doesn't PERMA stick you, but I have to tap my keys around a bit and move a bit darty like to get my strafing to work. To the point where it's worth just standing still or only needing to move forward. Glad to see others have this, sure they will fix it. Pretty easy to re-produce.

    i am having this issue as well.

    to be clear the issue is NOT that you can't move while the channel is going on.

    the issue is you cannot turn or straif while targeting a ground target abilty. before you actually start casting it.

    this issue was not around pre 1.9

    i can also reproduce it as it happens 100% of the time

    I was having no problems at all running around, backing up, strafing tonight, while I had the target circle active but not yet channeling...
    This issue has never happened to either one of my mages.

    You can go forward, backup and turn left and right just strafing is glitch'd for lack of a better word. Sometimes I can move forward then strafe works. This is all when trying to target the big yellow circle.

    I have a guildie that this is not happening to and more that it is, so it's not everyone I guess. At first we thought it was the new cancel channel option, no... just can't figure it out.

    Can you let a dev manager know please?

    Easy fix:

    Bind strafing to A and D, it'll get you out of the habit of keyboard turning and is more ergonomical to your hand. After this everything should be working just like it did before.

    No, it won't lol. The issue is strafing--it gets all borked up when you use a gtaoe and try to strafe. The same thing happens to me all the time in Sab, given that I've got 3 GTAoEs that I use all the time. I hope this gets fixed, soon.
