What server/world did you experience your issue on: Elphame
Describe the issue you are experiencing: My Ice Gauntlet ability for Ice Pylon won’t work anymore. It turned grey on the ability bar and shows no timer when it will be off cooldown, so it is on permanent cooldown forever. With this being said, it leads to even more problems. I can’t spend points in weapon skills or change to better gear because it says I’m on cooldown.
Is this a bug or an exploit: Bug
(if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: It randomly happened. No idea the cause.
(if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue: Nope. Still stuck with the problem. Can’t change gear or spend points in weapon skills because my Ice Gauntlet (Ice Pylon) ability won’t ever come off cooldown. I even tried relogging and it didn’t help any once I got back on.
What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: No idea how it even happened in the first place.
My problem was fixed after maintenance was finished. I’ll see how things will do in the coming days.
EDIT 2: I guess my problem came back. I tried closing out the whole game and relogging in, but still have the Ice Pylon on endless cooldown. The only way to fix the problem it seems at the moment is to die and respawn.
(edited/deleted my theory as to how/why this happens, because, I was wrong. see edit)
This, to me, constitutes a major bug. The ability becomes unusable for X amount of time, AND, while it is unusable the player can not change gear nor adjust their abilities/skills, the message about not being able to perform that action while abilities are still on CD pops up. A player getting stuck (as if stuck in combat) and unable change gear/abilities is quite severe. Having to die or re-log just to resolve the CD issue—and only temporarily at that—is not a “fix” either, it’s not even a band-aid.
It keeps happing for me. No matter what i do, the first time i place it, it goes on a forever CD. The only thinking that works for me is a relog(and good luck with that) and as soon as i place it again it goes on the big CD again…
Nm… Its on CD even after a relog… Cant even respec cos of it…
Chiming in to share I just experienced the same thing. Pylon doesn’t come off cooldown so I can’t change weapons or add skill points. This is wildly annoying and ended my play session for the night, as relogging would throw me into a 2 hour queue. Hope it’s gone when I log back in tomorrow.
Please address this—this is a serious character-breaking bug!
