Ambush lag/character lock up.

I've begun to notice more and more that when using Ambush (morphed from Teleport Strike), sometimes the game will either lag or my character will glitch out and the weapons in his hands disappear. During this time I can watch everything still happening around me in real-time, including being attacked by enemies. My character will be entirely unresponsive except for basic movement but I can't use any abilities, potions, roll-dodge, weapon swap....nothing. This will last for about 30-40 seconds then suddenly weapons appear in my hands again and all goes back to normal. This only seems to happen when using this particular ability as I've not seen it happen using anything else at all. Is this a known issue with Nightblades on PS4?

    That's an issue with latency/lag ... data is not getting to you fast enough when you change location quickly.

    All sorts of potential causes in the network.
    Everyone knows the phenomenon of trying to hold your breath underwater - how at first it's alright and you can handle it, and then as it gets closer and closer to the time when you must breathe, how urgent the need becomes, the lust and the hunger to breathe. And then the panic sets in when you begin to think that you won't be able to breathe - and finally, when you take in air and the anxiety subsides...that's what it's like to be a vampire and need blood.

    I figured it's a latency thing but it almost seems like only this ability triggers it, and it lasts for 30 seconds at a time, every time. It's almost like there's some internal cool down once you bug out like this before it lets you do anything again.
