View Full Version : Is spring attack working

06-06-2008, 04:45 AM
Was running around in the a slayers instance with my monk and was chasing a wolf I chased him for a good 2mins and was not getting an dice roll or attack on my combat log is this mechanic still implemented where it is tougher to land a hit.

might have to test it on my fighter.

It looks like the chasing thing has been somewhat fixed by a longer character reach(Hitbox Movement similar to Monster's), but you still have to Strafe the thing to actually land a hit. Get beside and a little bit in front of it, and you can hit it. Your client will freak out when you do land a hit and the AI changes though, so be prepared for the screen jumping around a lot.

Ive had spring attack on one of my tanks since mod 5. All it does is negate the penalty you would otherwise get for moving and attacking.

You guys know that stuff though........................ as for hitting a mob on the run, I find it much easier to do so now.

- u dont have to be ahead or at their side to hit them now

- Ive tripped mobs from behind while running (I was never able to do this before)

they basicly have extended our reach ;)
