Has anyone been having trouble with sound burst? I do the spell it does the animation and takes my sp but no effect is produced.

Not a true test. But I was recently doing some Sands slayer, killing gnolls, which I outclass by a bit, so dont really care to CC them much. But there were 2 times I threw Soundburst, and I can remember thinking, wow, I cant believe I missed them all *twice*.

from what i have noticed unless you have a mob: "hard targeted" sound burst will not work
It is no longer working as an aoe spell

Is hard targeted when you have right clicked the creature or when you use the reticule and aim over it?

And here I was thinking I was just being exceptionally unlucky on saves

hard targeted is when you actually click on the mob not just mouse over it...so to answer your question in a word : Yes

I've noticed this happening as well, but I have also noticed that sometimes some of my cure mod spells just randomly disappear/ go through the animation but no result, when I attempt to cast them on people. This has been when I'm just standing still so its not a concentration failure either. Kinda irritating

CMW -> maybe lag issues. I have got sometimes (happednd 3 or 4 times) that my Multishoot was used up but no efect (i don't have to mention it is realy annoing - waiting 2 minutes to do some DPS because of Lag)...

Tried it, no go.

If it was "WAI:need hard target" it would be like Hypnotism (nothing happens at all unless you have a hard target).

Instead, you get the casting animation and sound, the game takes your SP, and nothing happens. It's a bug.

Playing an Evoker-spec FvS, that was something I noticed almost straightaway.. the spell is not working like I once did, which was basically aim your reticule, and fire off the spell, and the burst appears where you aimed. Now if you do that, the spell animation goes off, you lose spell points but nothing happens and you don't get a warning or notification.

On the other hand, Holy Smite is working just fine, just like Soundburst used to. I am almost thinking that this may have been a part of their fixing the spells that shoot towards the ceiling issue (check pre-update Fireball).. I really hope they can bring it back, as Soundburst (being as low level as it was) was basically my quick-trap spell to fire off at a group of mobs flanking my group.
