    Default Dragon Breath targetting

    I'm confused on how the targeting of this ability works. It behaves very randomly, I've hit only enemies directly in front of me, I've hit all enemies except that what was directly in front of me, and I've hit absolutely nothing despite behind completely surrounded. So is this WAI? If it is, how is this supposed to work? I have the blue dragon version, if that makes any difference

    You can't move during its casting, otherwise it wastes a charge, puts you on cooldown, plays the animation, and does absolutely nothing.

    It is possible to pivot/twist laterally WITHOUT moving forward or sideways. Moving forward or sideways will most likely trigger cooldown and burn a charge as above. Twisting about 15 degree or less can enable you to strike additional mobs with the breath attack (at least on my Air Savant w/ Lightning Breath). This is a subtle "spray" maneuver, not a violent 90 degree twisting.

    If I get froggy I will make a Fraps of it at some point.

    We'll try to fix these so they function no matter what your movement is. Accidentally canceling your own action isn't fun.

    Interesting. I haven't had trouble using dragon breath while moving, as long as I don't bump a ledge and start to climb over it.
