So, theres probably a few threads about this by now, but afaik none are in the "bug" forum. Ive mostly been keeping track of this thread https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/379499/shadow-image-new-bugs#latest, but its in the pvp forum. Im just hoping that posting about this bug in the right forum might make ZOS and @ZOS_GinaBruno notice it and get it fixed asap. Thx.

Most of the time shadow image dont work, when you cast it the second time to teleport back to the shade it fails and you teleport only like 1 meter.

    To clarify, this is different from the Shadow Image bug from a week or two ago, where trying to teleport to your shade locked you out of all abilities. Now, trying to teleport back just doesn't work (except sometimes it kind of nudges your character a short distance from your current position).

    And again no fix. I'm so glad that basically everything which was strong on stamina got nerfed into dust during the last year (well tbf, magblade suffers from this dramatically too). Embrace shieldstack vs shieldstack, blocktard vs shieldstack or blocktard vs blocktard. I'm done with this game.

    Getting there myself. Guess I'll check in next quarter, PVP is *** this patch.

    Not fixed tho, had a chance to test it right now, it worked the first 4 times, then the next and subsequent tries it failed to teleport back, had to wait the full duration for it to run out before i could even renew the skill.

    Dear @ZOS_GinaBruno can we have a confirmation when the fix is out for this? I was made under the impression by friends that ZOS fixed it today, but I can confirm here and now that this is not the fact. Now the teleport completely fizzles 95% of the time, you dont even teleport 1m as you did 1 day ago.

    I thought it was working. But only like the first 4 times you try it! Skill is useless until it gets fixed sadly...

    This also affects the other morph, Dark Shades, so that you can't recast the shades during the duration or shortly after they end. It's like it thinks they are the teleport second cast morph and is checking for that circumstance and never moving on to the next "if/then" case to recast if the other condition hasn't been met.

    I had noticed it but just thought it was lag or the summoned pets not finding valid position to spawn in so they fail to spawn, but they should just spawn on top of my character then. Now, I know it is the same bug.
    If we wanted "challenge" in City of Heroes we would solo the content. If we wanted fun we would form a random PUG the majority of the time and just "wreck face!" feeling overpowered. That was the most fun of any game I've ever played so why does no other "newer" game design that way? I guess they like players never feeling good enough and the inevitable "max level rat/worm/insect/this-shouldn't-be-a-threatening-enemy-but-it-is" effect.

    used it today a lot... did not work at all:

    I also made a dramatic post about it over here :

    @ZOS_GinaBruno any update on this? this is a very vital skill in pvp... since destro/resto magblade has no other means of mobility in open world.

    Well, there's no patch on Monday, and our next one isn't scheduled until after Thanksgiving break. It also appears as though the fix is still being worked on, so... No ETA™ (yet).

    Do consoles get the "new" broken shade until the next time it's fixed? Please don't give us the one that doesn't work at all. I'd rather stick to the one with the bar "lockout" unti it's 100% fixed.

    Also how are the notes gonna read on that console patch.

    "Fixed an issue with shade causing lockout of character until the duration has expired"

    Known issues

    "Summon shade now no longer works reliably "

    This sounds ridiculous in my head while writing it.



    Just don't give it the clouding swarm treatment.
    Aka change the move completely

    This game needs a substantial increase in QA. Look at all the bugged and broken things. On top of that this game has always had a problem fixing bugs and then reintroducing the same bug at a later date.

    You can't take it on faith that anything works properly.

    Thanks guys, just confirming we are aware of this issue and working on getting it fixed.

    This is ridiculous. You gave us on PS4 a broken shadow image with clockwork. So I waited for the fix. See that the issue addressed got fixed.

    However it's now COMPLETELY BROKEN. Why would you give us a "fixed" broken move. How did this even pass testing?

    I'm really frustrated at this dev team because of waiting on fixes for things that are important to us. And when the fixes actually are "supposed" to happen the break in other ways.

    I know it's not @ZOS_GinaBruno or @ZOS_JessicaFolsom in particular but it's disheartening to say the least.

    I wish zos would give us less content and just fix all the bugs, it looks like there are a lot atm(queue finder, dark image, random dcs, long loading screens, miat's pvp addon, sheer venom/viper set removing stealth with warden vines, dragonkknight standard ultimate graphic, warden set graphic, and even little exploits in the UI like drag dropping unbound items to secondary empty slot allowing you to use them without them becoming bound... I really feel bad for them because of the amount of bugs and how much work they put into the game, but i'd rather have these bugs fixed vs more content.
