    Default U15 Patch 2 Cleric Radiant Aura Semi-Fixed :)


    http://compendium.ddo.com/wiki/Relea...tch_2_Official

    Enhancements

    ■The Radiant Servant's Positive Energy Aura and Burst now function regardless of the currently-selected target.
    Ran my cleric today its nice the aura does activate under some circumstances :

    Having anything targeted will activate the aura such as i tested with the following:

    - Myself
    - party member
    - NPC
    - dungeon object (lever, door, anything you can interact with)
    - breakable
    - Enemy Monster

    NOT having anything targeted will result in no Aura Cast and you are charged one use

    So please make sure you have something, ANYTHING targeted if you activate your Radiant Aura

    So yes according to the release notes it is fixed.... Somewhat.

    Just thought I would share this little bit

    Laters

    PS Edit : Submitting a bug report as well.

    Hmmm ok I tested it, in some instances targeting nothing would work, however once I get to another new instance (with aura still running), targeting nothing would result in what the OP stated.
    Sigh, turbine can you get nothing right???

    No.

    I rather have the previous problem where my aura is not going off when I am targeting something, than not going off and take 1 charge.

    Lol well its semi right I would grant them.

    I did more testing, its seems to me that the issue lies with going into a new instance with the aura still running, so if example you had a min left on the aura and you went to a new instance, by rights the aura dissappears and its suppose to reset so as you need to cast it again.

    But however I believe there is a disconnect with the server and the actual gameplay and the server side is still assuming the aura is running thus the non activation of the 'new' aura.

    I waited up my 1min and tried targeting nothing and casting the aura and this time it worked, so I believe my theory could be correct.

    It might be the same problem as that associated with the key of eveningstar where there is a disconnect with the server side as Tolero (or someone once mentioned).

    Turbine if you are reading this, kindly do have a look at this problem.

    In the meantime I will raise a bug report heh.

    Why cant they use the same code as Death Aura - how hard can that be? One is positive energy the other negative, one an SLA the other a spell.

    The two are so similar that it is hard to believe that there should be this much hassle.

    Even before the patch i didn't have any problems starting the aura if i had something targeted. I thought the whole issue was that you should be able to start it when you have nothing targeted. I'll have to wait till i get in game to test it. If the problem is at least limited to when instances are switched, at least that is some improvement.

    Tested out that theory.

    Went into the marketplace and faced a wall so that nothing was targeted, cast Aura, it works on me and others.

    With the timer still going (1:20 left), I went onto the guild airship, face the open area so that nothing was targeted, cast Aura, and it works as well.

    I didn't do any specific testing, all I know is that I never saw the "no target selected" text appear any time I hit my aura today (3 raids, 2 quests), so as far as I can tell it's working "properlyish" again (although it WOULD be nice if, someday, they change it so you don't lose it when you go through a door or portal...)

    Edit: Now that I think about it, though - I do seem to recall similar behavior to that described below a couple times, where my aura simply didn't go off when I had nothing targeted. Didn't get a message, but lost a charge and didn't get an aura.

    Ran challenges all evening and everytime in a quest unless i had something targeted nothing happened.

    Just logged my cleric back on the ship on main deck nothing targeted aura activated fine..... Went below deck instance change and tried with nothing targeted and aura did not activate. Self-targeting or Ship buff worked after instance swaps.

    Something is fishy... Probably instance changing related or in-quest problems too.

    There are problems that might need some minute tweaking on Turbine's part.

    Still to be on the safe side target yourself or something so it activates if you have changed instances previously.

    Yep, just observed the bug.

    Activated Aura in Marketplace. When I had nothing targeted, my turns were used and the animation occured, but no aura.

    It's odd, I don't recall having targeting issues with the aura, just with the burst. Thankfully, that seems to work with nothing/anything targeted now.

    I have seen this too, but did not make the connection. I must pay more attention to when it happens and then bug report it.

    F1 - cast aura,.. isn't new! I'll never change that habit, unless of course they make it where it doesn't work when targeting yourself~

    Lol that was the point of them fixing the Aura in the first place wirth this patch

    Back to the old habits for me too I guess....

    Maybe I will stop reading release notes for a while too

    Noticed the bug as well. It's frustrating. I'd prefer the previous bug really...

    Theoretically its not broken but it is also not completely WAI

    With all these bugs and such we must try and see some lightness in Incorporeal coding
