Just put the fix on the cartel market, seriously. I'll give you real money for it - up to my current balance which is thousands of coins.
Have u ever thought about the idea that there might be more than one department involved in developing this game? How is an artdesigner going to help with your problem, when he lays down his work on new cartel-market items?

Hello folks,

As another update, unfortunately testing revealed that this is not fully fixed, so we are not able to deploy with 2.2.3 as we'd hoped. Sorry for the delays here, but this is absolutely being worked on! When more info is available, I will be sure to follow up.

Well it's possible BW didn't want to have the same problem as they had with the Revan's Heir CM item not having an icon, so they delayed the Sage fix until the art department could properly put a logo to the CM item that will be the sage fix.

Wow two updates in row now where this is getting pushed back.

This is a major bug.... I am sad to see it can't be figured out by the team in Austin in a timely manner. This has been going on since 2.0 and we are now going to go past 2.2.3

It's not like this is a graphical issue. This is a complete game breaker.
This should not have to wait for another update to be corrected.

Sorry for the rant but how long ago did 2.0 roll out. My frustrations are starting to get to me.

P.S. Thanks for the update Amber! I guess !

Hello Sages and Sorcerers!

We've confirmed that this is caused when using Telekinetic Wave/Chain Lightning right before the proc for Tidal Force/Lightning Storm actually triggers. Additionally, the fix for this is through testing and ready to go for Game Update 2.3! Thanks for your ongoing patience while we investigated and resolved this frustrating issue.

So wait a minute, TW used BEFORE its proc? As in hard casting? As in the one thing no Sage should ever do?

If that is indeed the case it at least explains why I never saw it.

I get it because once you have a "feel" for it, you have a pretty good idea when it will proc and i often premtively hit it before the GCD is done... that explains why im getting the bug more as i anticipate it more.

No, the description by the "Yellow" is not quite right.
Basically it does proc but you hit the ability before either the server or client knows the ability has actually proc'ed.
Not sure that makes sense.
OK, so I'm spamming disturbance and I see the proc icon appears - I'm watching for it so I know the millisecond it's there. I hit TW but instead of casting instantly it starts the 3.0 delay. Usually you'll cancel this - but either way you are now unable to cast any abilities - and that is any ability, no bringing up shields, no force speed to safety etc.
So if you're in a WZ you are now a sitting duck until things reset or you're hiding, effectively putting your side one man down.

You keep talking to bioware as they really care about it. They don't care about balance and bugs in this game, specially when it's a sage issue.
They only want money, so they only work on cartel market.

Now, if there's a bug on cartel market. Imagina a bug there that makes you buy something and pay half of cartel coins. Imagine that. In less than a day i bet they'll make a patch and solve it.
