I'm not surprised to see you demo'd it with a VG. It was so common and annoying with mine that I trailed off on PVPing with that toon.
Yeah I have 9x 50's (well 5x 55's and 4x 50's now), and I play my vanguard less SPECIFICALLY because of this issue. HIB and Ion pulse fail to fire for me more than any other ability on my other classes. And obviously...those are the 2 most important abilities of that class haha. I was trying to level my vanguard today to 55, when I immediately started running into this bug again, HEAVILY.

I had to make a video. I really can't take it anymore.

And here I was thinking this right here was the topic of this thread, but from your post and after re-reading the OP I just realised it's a different issue. It happens to me a lot, especially with Ion Pulse, as in OP's video.

But that ability delay is still there, and it's not only limited to PVP. So they never solved it (at least not entirely).

Agreed. You should have someone else kite the baddies while you stand still. It would be easier to see what is happening with your abilities that way.

This has been a problem with the game since launch, I doubt they will ever fix it. Its really frustrating too.

So obviously the animation isn't playing, but do we know no damage is being dealt? Just thinking it may be helpful to compare with the combat log.

It happens the same with healing on my sage, and its not just the animations missing, it uses the GCD and no health is added to my target. And I don't mean every once in a while, I mean at least 5-6 times a warzone. Missing that Bubble+HoT is gamebreaking in PvP, you don't get another 1.5 seconds to try again.

What drives me bananas though is when your character does the animation as well, so you assume its lag and wait for the Channel or Cast to hit, but it never does and you just wasted 3-4 seconds.

Much clearer. Thanks.
I see what you mean now and it is clear as day for any devs that happen to be watching this thread.
Yeah, that really needs to be fixed.

CoH had similar problems back in the day. They managed to fix it. I'm sure BioWare can too.

Big improvement, it was very easy to tell the misfires. Hopefully this gets some attention and is worked on.
