  • What is your character name in New World: Prefer to not say

  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Saba

  • Describe the issue you are experiencing:
    There is multiple errors with the skillshot ability “Ice Spikes”

  • Very frequently it will go on cooldown after button press, but does not actually cast the ability. You can neither see damage, nor the visual effects. It did not cast, but still goes on cooldown.

  • Very frequently your Ice Spike will just go trough enemies staggering them, but not applying any damage. Just to clarify: The path itself is supposed to do damage, as well as the major ice spike, which makes it a skillshot as you want to land the biggest ice spike. However sometimes it will just land behind the enemies without dealing damage and this is not a timing issue, its a collision issue when its lagging.

  • Is this a bug or an exploit: Bug

  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: Its clear, that the ability can not reliably be used at all. There is no work-around. It is not exclusive to wars, it even happens frequently in normal open world and pve content.

  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue: No there is no way around.

  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced:
    Ice Spike example - YouTube

Dont expect expert level editing ^^ But it does show how Ice Spikes went on cooldown without the ability actually firing, as well as the ability going trough people staggering them, but not applying any damage.

  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: Using the ability causes this problem.
