Nice list. I’d like to add this one, can anyone double check to confirm?

The 5th skill of axe (last offhand skill) is Whirling defense. It is a combo finisher which is supposed to shoot out bolts in a combo field. The heart appears, but it doesn’t shoot any bolts.

Great job so far, those are some of my pet peeves too.
I’ll continue on with some more…

Weapons
Axes
2 – cone bleed has times where if fires just to the right or left of hand rather than center cone which it does sometimes as well. But the off center makes the shotgun affect of landing max bleeds very difficult to land sometimes.

1h Swords
Majority of the time you get locked into auto attacking unable to proc non wep skills or dodge. The auto attack a lot of the time has difficulties hitting moving targets and other times let’s you hop like a rabid bunny a few times over great distances so its a bit inconsistent.

Horn
Sometimes the birds that are summoned are massive, comparable to oak hearts in size.

Downed
Resing others you sometimes get stuck unless you use a skill. You are unable to move or dodge sometimes.

Traits
Spotter also affects you, only active during combat, and shows as might buff rather than spotter, all lacking from tool tip.

Master’s bond adds 6 all stats per stack, 150 max, should be in tool tip.

Beast mastery line says plus one pet stat, its actually 10 to all, max 300.

Predator’s instinct is a 2sec Cripple (lacking tool tip), other classes have 5secs on comparable traits.

Pets prowess isn’t at 30% per tool tip, my calc it was roughly between 20 and 22.

Moment of clarity needs tool update.

Expertise training needs tool update with specifics.

Hide in plain site dies not always trigger and sometimes will trigger during 1h sword auto attack animation which will break as the animation ends. No way to stop mid animation to get full affect.

Enlargement needs a tool update stating damage increase and stability as well as duration.

Instinctive bond tool tip does not say duration or cd though there are. Recently fixed.

Skills
Muddy terrain doesn’t always immobilelize upon creation even at point blank range.
Entangle, some classes can just flash (lack of better comparison) out.

Pets
Don’t grow in size as they level. (I know not a real bug but it should be fixed. They are too dang Small!)

Pets will sometimes just stop auto attacking and sit next to the mob not doing anything. Happens quite often for sharks but also happens for other aquatic and terrestrial pets.

Pets have extremely hard time hitting moving targets due to ramp up animations on all atk and auto atk.

Pets cannot follow over cliffs etc. They will run around grabbing agro of everything on the way.

The Hyena’s power stat is glitched. It is less than half of all other dog types. All other stats match.

Texting from phone right now. I’ll edit more when I get home as I’ve submitted alot to support via interface and check for fixes after each patch.

Yeah but that is a game functionality bug, not specific to rangers.
I submitted it a couple of times during beta since It didnt follow the flow.from part 1.

The fact they kept it in most likely was intentional due to ma to of those types in the game and removing it would narrow builds even further for classes like our rangers whom have arguably only two main builds, one being the statuses build. I wouldn’t mind if they did fix it though.

As far as my testing went, it worked. Remember you have to actually reflect projectiles to get combo finisher.

Black Widow has lower stats than other spiders.

Added both. Good finds.

Holy long list batman! I added a few that were legitimate Ranger bugs and not suggestions.

May or may not be a bug but the shout Guard gives pet 10 seconds of stealth but the stealth breaks as soon as it attacks.

There is definitely something odd about guard. I don’t feel that it breaking stealth on attack is a bug, but I also don’t feel that it’s fulfilling any legitimate role besides afk farming or putting pets on top of keeps!

This is because you’re affected by immobilize probably which is a condition, not a stun. I think it should break it though.

I don’t think Protect Me not absorbing condition damage is a bug. Most other damage immunity abilities in the game also don’t affect condition damage. (Ele’s Mist Form, for example.)

One bug to add to the list: Signet of Renewal’s Active ability only seems to work about 50-60% of the time, even with an active pet. Need to do further testing to be sure this isn’t an issue with the pet’s distance from the ranger on use, but I don’t think that’s the case.

I hear you here. The reason I put it on the list was due to the wording of the ability AND the fact that you need an active pet to stop attacking and run to you for it to work. As reference “Instead of attacking, your pet will protect you by absorbing all damage you would take.”

You’re most likely right though, would love to get a dev response on a few of these issues (especially in patch notes!).

After testing all the F2 skills.

  • Lynx F2 bleed skill adds 4 stacks, the skill says 2.
  • Alpine Wolf’s F2 skill lasts around 3 seconds, the skill says 4½.
  • Snow Leopards F2 skill says it lasts 2,1/4 seconds, but it’s actually 7 seconds.
  • Marsh Drakes F2 poison skill lasts for 13 seconds while the skill says 3½ seconds.
  • Blue Moas F2 skill lasts about 4 seconds, the skill says 10 seconds.
  • White Moas F2 skill says it’s a regeneration skill, when it’s a chill skill. Also, the duration of the skill is only lasts around 1 second, which is extremely short for a chill effect.
  • Black Bears F2 skills says it lasts for 11,1/4 seconds, but it’s closer to 10 seconds.
  • Arctodus F2 bleed skill doesn’t say that it adds 2 stacks.
  • Lashtail Devourers F2 bleed skill doesn’t say it adds 6 stacks.
  • It doesn’t say how long the Hyenas F2 skill lasts.
  • Owls F2 skill lasts around 5 seconds, the skill says 3½.
  • The Eagles F2 bleed skill doesn’t say it adds 2 stacks (same with the Hawk).

Using Bonfire with the axes Ricochet doesn’t work at every throw, even though it says “Burning”. Further more, using Throw Torch on a mob, and then following it up with the Bonfire-Ricochet combo, very rarely makes the burning stack in duration. It’s the same when using Bonfire with a longbow; the burning doesn’t seem to stack, but times out instead and then restarts upon the next hit.

I’ll do more test on the axe bleed when I get home from work but my only ranged wep is the axe (cuz I’m a rebel like that lol) so this became very apparent. I already ruled out latency or graphic drag as I have a norm of about 65 fps at max settings with a 30 to 35 latency. I also got it to trigger at lowest settings as well. I’ve had it occur while moving in all directions especially running forward in a straight line to close gap to get most the affect but when it fires a step to the right/left of my hand it only gets 3 bleeds instead of 5. I’ve also had it while standing static as well so ill try to determine a pattern.

Downed skill 3 ‘Lick wounds’ has a 50/50 chance of working, if that.

My pet regularly simply stands on top of me and does nothing which has lost me more than my fair share of fights, this coupled with F2 skills not working when I want them to can make my playing experience extremely frustrating.

That actually may be contributed to any aoe no matter how small.
As you stop channeling heal when downed at the slightest touch your pet seems to sometimes follow that pattern instead of the being able to channel through the pain as a person trying to res you.

Hopefully, if its a mob and they stay focused on you with single target stacks you may live but any aoe or especially in pvp if your pet feels a strong enough breeze while standing on top of you, the skill channel will break

I have never seen my pet stop healing me once it started unless it is killed during the process. If it is knocked away, it returns and continues healing.
What I did notice is that it seems to be affected by whether the pet was alive or not when you activate the skill. If dead, the skill will revive the pet, and it will come over, but it won’t heal you.

There has been a huge issue with ‘Lick Wounds’ since the patches that affected ranger pets. When I was leveling up it was faithful in letting my pet come give me some healing, but as of late it’s as Ickorus.5418 stated, a 50/50 chance.

Another issue with ‘Lick Wounds’ is the fact that other summoned pets come to res you as well. For example, try the racial abilities such as ‘Call Wurm’, ‘Summon Fern Mastiff’, etc and use ‘Lick Wounds’. It’ll come to attempt to resurrect you!

From my experiance those con removals work only for things like stuns/sners/roots but not for DOTs.

- Nature’s Boon is supposed to increase regeneration duration by 33%, but it doesn’t increase the duration of troll ungent. Troll ungent doesn’t apply a regen boon but it’s description says “regenerates health.”

- Hide in Plain Sight applies camouflage to your pet when it is knocked down/stunned as well.

- This only happened once but Search and Rescue on a downed ally caused my pet to stick to that ally after rezzing until I switched pets out. It looked hilarious.

I’ve seen this too. Although, at 1500 range, all of my longbow/harpoon gun skills show that they’re out of range but still manage to land attacks. Adding to the list!

I dont know if u noticed but con removal from pet dosnt work, just as signet that pulls all con to pet. Just as passive on that same signet that removes one con every 10 sec.

From my experiance those con removals work only for things like stuns/sners/roots but not for DOTs.

I’ve just confirmed that Signet of Renewal does indeed, convert DOTs conditions such as burns, bleeds or poison. Maybe you’re pet isn’t close enough to you? Try to isolate the issue and I’ll put it on the list.

- Nature’s Boon is supposed to increase regeneration duration by 33%, but it doesn’t increase the duration of troll ungent. Troll ungent doesn’t apply a regen boon but it’s description says “regenerates health.”

Nature’s Boon is working as intended. It increases the duration of the boon ‘Regeneration’, not the heal over time affect of Troll Unguent. Check the wiki on it here.

- Hide in Plain Sight applies camouflage to your pet when it is knocked down/stunned as well.

Just tested this via NPC’s and during PvP. Not working for me. My bear would hit the ground or get stunned but no camouflage. Try to replicate and isolate the issue. If you can find out how it’s happening under specific circumstances we can add this.

- This only happened once but Search and Rescue on a downed ally caused my pet to stick to that ally after rezzing until I switched pets out. It looked hilarious.

Again, just tested this and no dice. Sounds like you had a lot of odd bugs!

I have a possible weapon bug to discuss as well. For the Ranger’s Underwater Speargun, Skills 1 and 2 do nearly no damage at all. I’m not sure if this is a bug or not, but this is the main reason why I do not use the Ranger’s Speargun at all. Nearly all other weapons of any class, the auto attack skill usually does more damage than the other 4 skills available.

Another bug I would like to report is that the Ranger’s trait skill, “Moment of clarity,” doesn’t work when I have tested it. I don’t even know if it procs if the Ranger interrupts the enemy or if the enemy interrupts the ranger. Attack of Opportunity could also be more defined because some sites have discussed that the next attack does 150% damage and after some testing, I have found no conclusion for this basis.

Remember, the Speargun has a very fast auto attack and is an AE bleed. I agree that it feels awkward when using it. Especially for a Power/Precision longbow build that it’s traits synergize with.

I haven’t seen it work either to tell you the truth. Soon I’ll make a guildie join me in sPvP for some hardcore testing. If it comes out looking bugged, I’ll toss it on the list.

I doubt it, because then you are saying a hyena can only be as good as any normal hound type once every two minutes? The summon only auto attacks for lesser strength as the main. If it did same damage and used the same skills then maybe.

I doubt it, because then you are saying a hyena can only be as good as any normal hound type once every two minutes? The summon only auto attacks for lesser strength as the main. If it did same damage and used the same skills then maybe.

Not sure where you got the 2 minute number. It has an untraited 45 second cooldown and don’t forget that during that 45 seconds your hyena ally is up and fighting for you. Another thing, if you swap pets their cooldowns are reset so waiting for the 45 seconds is probably less efficient if you’re pet swapping a lot.

Also, it does do the same abilities but at about half damage. I just had my Hyenas both knock down somebody consecutively!

You are correct. Adding now.

Lick Wounds downed state: My pet always attacks me rather than heals me. (Red numbers and health drops. NOT dotted or being attacked in any way) Happens to my ranger friends too. I have also seen it happen to other downed rangers. Even the animation is them being attacked by their own pet.

Currently using jaguar and snow leopard.

Nature’s Bounty (+33% regeneration duration) doesn’t seem to actually do anything for me. It doesn’t increase the duration of the regen effect from Healing Spring, and it doesn’t seem to increase the Regeneration effects pets can do either. Do we even have another way to actually apply the Regeneration boon?

I think what might be happening is that it isn’t stacking with the passive Boon duration bonus from the trait line. So if you have 30 points in Nature Magic, you are only getting +3% duration from it. When I just do 10 points and take it, the counter shows 4 seconds for a brief moment when I step into my healing spring.

Also noticed that the tooltips for pets say their boons and conditions go up in duration with things like the passive trait line bonuses and gear bonuses, but they don’t actually seem to gain anything. With 30% from Nature Magic, and several gear bonuses, my Fern Hound says he has a 16 second duration on his Regen howl, but it still only lasts 10 seconds. Not sure if it’s a tooltip issue and the pets shouldn’t gain duration with my stats, or if it’s bugged and they should be getting it (I hope the latter).

Anyone else experienced longbow/shortbow autoattack “hangs”. It continues to pick targets at random when having killed/deselected the previous target. Got to press escape to stop “fight mode” or whatever casuing it. This might be a more general bug though if it happens on scepter etc also.

Ok I have had this happen often enough to think it’s a bug, Shortbow “Quick Shot” will not always result in retreating backwards at times. I just jump up in same spot without actually moving and this is when I do not have have any bind or tarren issues.

Nature Magic 5 point trait ability gain regeneration when health reachs 75% doesn’t seem to trigger very often escially if you suffer big damage and doesn’t stack with Signet of the Wild.

Oakheart Salve also doesn’t tigger regeneration if you have Signet of the Wild up even though you are in fact either bleeding, poison, or burning. Some times doesn’t tigger on it’s own without having Signet of the Wild up.

Oh and why do our pet names keep reverting back to Juvenile? Seems at some random point it just changes back to it’s default name.

Uhm…wouldn’t this be more useful in the bugs section? And not in the discusssion section? I think that we have higher chances of seeing fixes from threads in the bugs section.

This is a fine place for this. I’ll get it stickied like the others. Thanks for your patience, these fixes will take some time to do, and about a week to test. They won’t all happen at once as we try to push through fixes ASAP.

Unless they fixed it since last night pet names still arent sticking if you try to swap a pet from ‘storage’ to one of your two ‘active’ slots. Upon entering storage the name is lost. Also if you swap your pets it locks the two ‘active’ pets and prevents you from being able to bring any out of ‘storage’. It doesn’t seem to unlock unless you restart the game client.

Not sure of this a true bug or if it’s ranger only, but I’ve had an autotarget issue of the game selecting a non-hostile creature to attack (yellow text) instead of the hostile (red text) directly in front of me. I frequently am directly facing a charging enemy and hit ‘1’ on my bow only to have my arrow shoot off left or right and hit a moa or some such. Not sure if it’s related to proximity, but autotarget should never pick a non-hostile, imho.

Feel free to move this to a generic bug thread if appropriate.

Ranger pet names do NOT stay. I have posted this before but i’ll try to explain it. If I place a name on say a bear and then change the bear to a wolf under pet management the name resets back to “juvenile blah blah blah animal” the names WILL stay if I just use the pet swap option between the current active pets.

I know this isn’t a big issue what with all the skills and traits needing fixing, but its a bummer if I come up with a great name for the pet only to have it vanish and then having to try and remember it again.

It seems I’m unable to edit my posts or quote anyone at the moment. Have a thread here in regards to what is happening.

As soon as I’m able, I’ll reply and edit the list.

Edit: it’s working again!

Nature’s Bounty (+33% regeneration duration) doesn’t seem to actually do anything for me. It doesn’t increase the duration of the regen effect from Healing Spring, and it doesn’t seem to increase the Regeneration effects pets can do either.

It should increase the regeneration duration of your Healing Spring. Go to the Mists and watch what the max duration of regeneration is with and without Nature’s Bounty. With a base of 10% boon duration from the Nature Magic trait line, you should see a 10 second peak with Nature’s Bounty verse a 4 second peak without.

Sadly, it doesn’t increase the duration of our pet’s regeneration.

Do we even have another way to actually apply the Regeneration boon?

No.

Also noticed that the tooltips for pets say their boons and conditions go up in duration with things like the passive trait line bonuses and gear bonuses, but they don’t actually seem to gain anything. With 30% from Nature Magic, and several gear bonuses, my Fern Hound says he has a 16 second duration on his Regen howl, but it still only lasts 10 seconds. Not sure if it’s a tooltip issue and the pets shouldn’t gain duration with my stats, or if it’s bugged and they should be getting it (I hope the latter).

Very much bugged. Adding this to the list.

I can confrim this bug. I used Shortbow and nothing else for the first part of my gameplay (got the finishing kill achivement with it before lvl 30 actually) and Quick Shot malfunctions quite a lot. The bug seems to occur in three different “flavours” so to speak.

Could you upload a youtube video of this happening? I’m unable to replicate it myself.

I turned autotargetting off during the beta weekend and never looked back. The horn skill “Call of the Wild” will auto target a nearly neutral mob and agro it. Was terribly annoying while leveling. Although, I’ll have to hold off on adding this bug for now. Not Ranger specific.

I was fooling around with Malicious Training/Expertise Training (the ones that affect pet conditions) with a brown bear pet on the heavy armor target dummy in heart of the mists, they do work. When using Crippling shot from the short bow, the bears bleed damage was about 42 for 5 seconds without either trait. With both traits the damage went up to 48 and the duration to approximated 8 seconds.

Please add:
Traps in clocktower don’t work. No white circle appears when they are laid, and they don’t trigger.

Very easy to test and fails 100% of time.
