Potential Issues With Amazon’s ‘Guided Arrow’ (GA) Skill
Splitting this one out as unless I’m misreading how the game works, it seems a little more broken than I first thought.
FTR - I can misunderstand things like how the game works like it was my life’s goal.
- GA Not Firing Normally
- ‘Magic Damage’ Not Specified Correctly
1. GA Not Firing Normally
Is the Amazon skill ‘Guided Arrow’ (GA) specced to intentionally not fire unless the cursor is over an enemy or object?
This feels counter intuitive next to the other arrow skills that I’ve used thus far, which all fire when you tell them to fire and in whichever direction you’re pointing the cursor.
Also, the description states:
Imbues a missile with the ability to seek it’s nearest target.
This suggests to me that it would act somewhat like a more automated version of Yondu’s yaka arrow from GOTG. In that as long as it’s fired, it’ll literally seek its (surely not “it is”, assuming that’s OG D2 spelling) nearest target.
I mean, hell, if I were to really take that to heart, I’d think it’d be able to sniff off around corners and suchlike.
EDIT: OK, have tested it on Gamepad, and it feels borked there, too. So in M+K (despite the jankiness) it’s the only arrow that I’m able to shoot the length of the screen to snipe something a long way away … however with controller it just won’t register an opponent that’s not in line of site.
However, at least the pitiful normal hand weapon will fire.
This gamepad stuff includes with small objects, or a rise/fall in the scenery, in the way. Meaning that some monsters can get ridiculously close before it will start to fire. Yet on M+K it’ll fire over these.
2. ‘Magic Damage’ Not Specified Correctly
The Magic Damage assigned in the specs of GA doesn’t seem to be reflected properly in the Character Window’s Spell section on the second page.
It is definitely not reflecting the added damage but it’s also possible (although I can’t do the maths) that the percentage increase isn’t there, either. I’m unsure as I have some increase on that from other skills, etc.
