In PvP, don't you think it's silly how Radiant Destruction continues casting while the target is behind a wall? .... This is coming from somebody who mains a Templar, by the way.

    It's no different than the 3-5 bow attacks that are "in the air" when im out of range.

    Also being a channeled/over time attack RD should only have to be in range for the initial range check.

    I see it as working as intended.

    I've never had it hit anyone who breaks line of sight. It is regularly broken by trees, rocks, and walls. The beam will keep going, but only until the next damage tick then it breaks. In laggy situations the beam sometimes keeps going but no damage is being done. Heck, sometimes the beam doesn't even stop after the target is dead, but that doesn't mean it is still doing damage. I do regularly hit people out of line of sight with dark flare though since once it is cast it will follow people behind walls like any other spell or ability with travel time.

    99% percent of the problems in PvP can be attributed to lag.

    That's why when that list of like 90 bugs was posted after TG's launch, the dev team couldn't reproduce over half of them.

    True, yes.. it was really laggy as well so that confirms it even more :p Kinda put things into perspective being on the receiving end of RD while behind a wall.

    When a keep or outpost gate is damaged and broken where I can see through it, why can't I stick my sword through and place it into the sorry son of a [snip] standing behind it? Why can't I shoot arrows through?

    You do realise I'm referring to the fact you could heal through walls until they nurfed that too.

    Yeah, I have no real problem with the power of RD (well...)
    But the big issue is that you can't LoS it. Oh, you're shooting a beam at me, that's okay, I'll go behind this wall... oh, wait.

    As mentioned above, I find it really strange that healing now obeys collision rules, yet RD doesn't.

    I was on my newly maxed-out Nightblade, you see.. and I spent a good few hours in Cyrodiil (24k HP FYI) and most of my deaths were Radiant Destruction, I thought nothing of it apart from whenever I'd enter Werewolf form, they'd just spam it on my non-stop until I couldn't outheal it, but other than that, there were moments where I'd LoS the beam as soon as it channels and I'll be completely behind a wall in safety yet the beam will still be ticking away and it made me think, seeing it from the perspective of another class rather than always seeing it from my Templar's perspective, I guess.

    People dislike the skill, we get it, but can we at least be realistic please? We also don't need a 20th thread debating the skill, this one was pretty narrowly focused on the LoS being bugged.

    Ok, forum police.

    Vigor should do damage if it ticks while you're dodge-rolling. There. Another annoying mechanic that tons of people hate, and the idea is as ridiculous as making RD do damage.

    You have a better idea against dodge roller/ shuffle players? some damage is better than none.

    TBH, any RNG element of defense should be removed (e.g. evasion). Replace it with damage reduction or something.
