Please tell me if I'm missing something here. Energy Burst should consume Energy Lodes on use. I either have a visual bug or there's something not right here. See the below video. I use only Energy Burst with no other abilities. It shouldn't even be usable without getting a new stack of Energy Lode.

I abandoned/retrained my discipline and tried the training dummy, and it seemed to work correctly. After relogging, it's back to the same odd behavior.

Thanks. Here's more information after testing some things.

It seems to be reproducible by changing zones or logging out with stacks of Energy Lode. Buff bar shows one stack of Energy Lode when you re-enter the game. Stacks can visually increase but damage is as if there is only 1 and it is not consumed. Can be fixed by dying to clear all buffs. Makes sense, since I wasn't seeing this in PVP. Logging out does not fix.

at least it is not game breaking as you only have 1 stack... it shows 4 but the cell burst only does dmg like with 1 stack....
so its not a dps increase but in fact a dps loss...
i strongly suggest clicking the stacks away when entering a phase if you want to deal dmg

yes that's a workaround. but seriously....this should not be broken after a patch for lockouts etc

Indeed, there is such an issue. Was kinda weird, I first discovered this bug in pvp -- was really happy with this bug at first, but later saw that it does minor damage and basically equals a single stack of CB at 20 energy cost. The workaround is just canceling the stacks in the new phase.

Hello, please address this when possible. This seems like a bug and it's yet another game changing bug for Vanguard, with Storm bugging out occasionally since the dawn of time.
The bug has great effect on pvp and pve in VM or MM where if it happens it's a massive dps loss and might as well ./stuck.

thank you.

i think i have narrowed this down to occuring when you zone into an instance with >0 energy lodes. if you clear the buff for the energy lodes, you start consuming them normally.

New problem, energy lodes only build like 20% of the time on rail shot.
