vMA bow enchantment still eating charges each tick when on bow bar?

On XB NA homestead live, the bow still appears to be eating charges each tick of endless hail while on the bow bar. I thought this was supposed to be fixed?

To recreate: Cast endless hail on bow bar and remain on bow bar for 5 or so casts & duration. You will notice your charges drained significantly more than they should be.

    None of the bugs were fixed before console launch, focus is on housing, PvP and animal noises apparently.

    I'm totally fine with PvP being focused as it is probably the worst performing aspect of the game currently, but this is a pretty annoying bug. I'm not concerned about the soul gems, as I probably have 5k grand gems accumulated across all my characters, but having the bow run out during dungeon runs unexpectedly can seriously *** with my DPS.

    Standing on my horse is kind of fun, broken combat mechanics causing lowered dps and increased incoming damage not so much.

    Bump? This bug still exists and is starting to get very frustrating. UPDATE: There is an audio que for when this bug occurs. So you may notice that when you switch to a bow bar with a VMA bow on it, there is a small audio effect that represents the maelstorm bow enchantment. Sounds almost like "thunder off in the distance". While endless hail is up, sometimes when switching to the bow bar you will hear this audio que, but it will loop and you will hear it over and over again. I think this is tied with the bug as I have observed the bug occurring simultaneously to the audio que bug.

    Yeah I had to charge my bow twice in vMA. I usually don't have to charge it every 20 minutes.

    Contrary to what some people have been saying the enchant doesn't work when the weapon isn't charged.

    That's very interesting, I did notice that sound. I thought they just changed the audio cue.
