Some more repeatable info, this time using the hire - Olga a level 20 wizard (one druid past life, no augment summoning). I was in Exalted Angel's Astral Presences stance, but doubt that would make a difference.
Place : Kobolds New Ringleader on Normal.
Olga was wailing an average of 4 kobolds, once killed 5 including a neg level.
Never killed all six as a Level 20 wizard should (if my maths are correct) at least 73.5% (0.95^6) of the time.
Bumping this again to note that the new bug reporting tool appears to be functional, speedy, and straightforward. I have submitted my two test cases using the new bug reporting tool and I am urging other players affected by this issue to do the same. Thank you.
Wail of Banshee is still not working correctly as easily tested using the Black Loch scenario described on page one of this thread.
I just stepped in to EE Loch, pw:stunned the first skirmisher, stood right next to him, and wailed:
(Combat): You are affected by your wail of the banshee.
(Combat): Nearby foes will spontaneously die.
(Combat): you hit Blood Tide Skirmisher with Enervation.
(Combat): Your wail of the banshee effect has been removed from you
What I expect to see is three Wail ticks hitting this guy for three enervations, or although the odds are against it, seeing him die on one of the ticks. What I got for my three ticks was one single enervation both in combat log and visibly on screen. Of course I can't tell if the issue is Wail not properly selecting in range enemies (ignoring enemies it already affected?), Wail ticks simply not firing at all, or something else.
This is the simplest possible test of basic Wail functionality that I can think of. Is it not possible for a Turbine rep to try this test, verify the results, and then initiate a fix so that at minimum Wail really does tick three times and affect two in range enemies on each tick as the spell description states? Please get us at least that far back to what the spell did previously.

After 5+ months of Wail not working correctly...
Retested on live, and as of U19 it appears to be back to functioning as described in the spell description. Both test cases are firing off for me just fine. The EE skirmisher enervates or dies on every tick. I tried it a few times and didn't see any targeting failures whereas before it as common to see only one enervate and nothing else. Sewer dogs are the same - seeing no obvious targeting failure.
Didn't try it in "real action" yet... but so far it's a noticeable difference from pre U19 broken state.
