Storm Atronach Ultimate Broken?

Has anyone else noticed that sometimes when using the Sorcerer's Storm Atronach ultimate, it will not appear after casting and will be a wasted ultimate use? It seems to have been broken since Homestead.

    Not that specifically, but Liquid Lightning definitely. It doesn't cast half the time anymore. It's probably something to do with the quick cast setting found under gameplay, I haven't got around to checking (mine is on for reference).

    Just ran a dungeon and carefully watched Liquid Lighting. I noticed the same thing - can't even get it to proc Llambris. What is going on?

    I had trouble with my storm atro tonight. Cast it and it disappeared before my husband had a chance to use the synergy. Not only was my ultimate wasted, but we missed out on his extra damage too. Frustrating!

    Okay so I'm not the only one who keeps experiencing a disappearing Storm Atronach. I'm trying to figure out what is causing it to disappear (along with Liquid Lightning).

    Bump, storm atronach keeps disappearing on cast, I can barely get it to spawn less than half the time, this is backbreaking like crazy =.="

    I can confirm this is an ongoing issue for me as well. It almost, but not entirely, seems to do with the smoothness or flatness of the terrain. I can nearly predict when it will cast (but when I'm wrong, its because I thought it would cast, but doesn't, never vice-versa).

    I can easily lose 50% of my ulitmate casts of him. :/

    Maybe the weather is just getting nicer? Clearly nothing ZoS has control over.

    Try waiting for rain or at least a couple of clouds before using this ultimate. Even Zeus would have a tough time spawning a storm on a clear day.

    I'm a PVE roleplayer concerned about my vampires stage 4 skin tone and keep getting load screens so I came here to distract people from major issues with a rant thread about my characters cosmetic appearance.

    It's also affecting destro ultimate and other ground aoes like wall. They disappear as soon as they try to tick damage and your initial target had already died.

    I use quick cast on PS4 and have never once not seen liquid lightning cast. I don't think it is that setting (at least on console).

    I believe this issue has been corrected entirely. I'm not having any issues whatsoever with the atronach since the last patch (or the previous one, I'm not sure).

      I've experienced this with purge, LL, Blockade, Atro, Elemental Storm, Negate, and sometimes even bash.

      Nothing like mashing buttons to have nothing happen yet still lose the resource, better yet, when it finally does decide to cooperate, it tries to do it twice.

      It's not a lag issue, either, as other skills will continue to fire off just fine.
      Just because you don't like the way something is doesn't necessarily make it wrong...
