Shadow cloak + venom arrow = broken

Hey guys, i've been searching for this on the forums for a good half hour or so, and it seems like this problem should have been resolved in a patch, but its not, it's broken. Ive tried to use shadow cloak after hitting a mob with poising arrow maybe 100 times, it never works. EX:

Sneak attack with bow - Poison arrow - shadow cloak (going for the stun with concealed weapon) and guess what? IT NEVER WORKS, NOT ONCE.

I have tried, as an experiment, to be as close to the enemy as possible, but there is no way in hell i can get of concealed weapon before shadow cloak ends, well i can, but not with poison arrow anywhere in my rotation. Now the reason i put this out is because, as far as i noticed on the forums, people have been saying they fixed the problem and i want to ask you guys; if you know any work around? Any tips and tricks to make shadow cloak better? Does Zenimax know about this, and have they made any statements about it?

    They did not fix it. We still cannot use Shadow Cloak as long as an enemy has certain DoTs on it. Try to use Shadow Cloak while an enemy is standing in Path of Darkness you will get the same result. It severely limits our builds when we cannot use our stealth with DoTs.

    Yeah i know right, because i really wanted to play nightblade with a bow, but since i cant use poison arrow with shadow cloak it doesn't do to well, sure i can use dual wield instead, but that's not what i wanted.

    Its a gigantic problem that is starting to *** me off. yes, i just cussed on the forums. it is something i despise doing; that is how frustrating this issue is.

    and cloak STILL breaks for no apparent reason. not as much as it used too. but it still happens. idk why ZOS thinks that 0.9=2.9; i suck at math, but i can do that basic counting.

    Do i expect this skill to work absolutly 100% of the time? YES, why? here is why:

    does dragon blood work every time it is used? yes

    does bolt escape work every time it is used? yes

    do templar heals/ self-heals work every single time they are used? yes.

    does shadow cloak, the NBs "get out of jail free card" ability, work 100% of the time? NO.

    its time to stop adding in pointless PvE grindzones and start fixing the game. NBs are not the only ones with problems either.

    Ya zos has no idea wtf they are doing. They can't fix cloak. I took it off my build and have been using mist from vampire because at least the time it says it will work actually *** works! I don't even recommend people to play nb unless they want to play as some sort of mage. This cloak issue will never be fixed....

    At least in Pve I had no issues, but since one of the last incremental patches the damage over time of Poison Arrow (and its morphs) breaks always Shadow Cloak (and its morphs).
    "... and the blue fire of Helluin flickered in the mists above the borders of the world, in that hour the Children of the Earth awoke, the Firstborn of Ilúvatar."

    @ZOS_JessicaFolsom Fix cloak. No ability breaks on dmg, cloak should not eighter. And improve cloak.

    It wouldn't *** me off (as much) if it didn't cost so much damn mana.
    I can buy a stack of invis pots for 9k and free up space on my bar.

    ... and the potions work. Even with DoT's.

    If only ZOS moderated their game like they did their forums...

    thats another thing that bothers me. the potions work so much better than the actual spell!!!! an invisibility potion every class can get, works better, than the "unique" invisibility spell of the NB class!!!
