Nothing game-changing or anything of course. But when Tharan casts "Deploy Holiday" I can only remember seeing her actually there a handful of times. Am I doing something wrong? Tharan uses that ability during each fight on his own.
Hooked on Star Wars since 1977...

Holiday is a mez. If you or someone attacks Holiday's target, her mez will break and she'll disappear.

Which is fine, because while Holiday is up, tharan's not healing you.

Yeah but Holiday is also usually deployed against the highest threat combatant in the mob. If it's against a single target it'll give you a few seconds to either channel something, or wait for a CD to end. Also Theran will Drop an HOT on you before deploying holiday so you are , technically still being healed while holiday is deployed

Yeah Tharan always casts "Med Scan" before casting Holiday, which is how I know to watch for it. However Holiday has never once shown up for me. She just never renders so I'm guessing it's a graphical glitch.

Do you actually see the whole ability channel? Because i've seen it where it gets interrupted and she never appears. I've also seen it with a bunch of consulars (sages, and shadows) with 4 holidays out lol

You are forgetting to deploy your decor for Holiday.

Don't expect it to ever be fixed.
That sounds right about the time I noticed her no-showing too...

Seems unlikely to me that this is an accidental bug... my guess is they removed her on purpose, either because some people didn't like it, or to render one less model to improve the game's performance (probably by about a third of a frame per second). The problem is now it's almost impossible to tell when an enemy is being mez'd by Theran.

Bioware, if you are going to remove the graphic on an ability, you have to replace it with something else so we still have visual queues. Although personally I liked it the way it was before. Thanks.
