Ty for posting this - lootfilter link is broken though :slight_smile:

fixed

Flurry/Multistrike is currently bugged, and you shoot way too fast. (not just the slowing increasing AS issue)
Just fair warning,.

Hey there, still trying this out and reached my first, more or less, Monos so far…

As of the last BuildPlanner Interval lv76 - there’s a point in “Keep pushing 'em around” (Multishot, upper left, adds pushback to MS)
Why? Feels like this is a counter to “point blank”.

The point of my Question: I just defeated the first “Mono Boss” (Blood thingy…) and it got pushed around a lot after i destroyed those four tanks. Are real Bosses pushback immun? so its just a “nice to have” thing while “mapping”? (Edit: Did some more Monos - from 58 over 62 to now 66 - “rare enemys”, tankier ones or Enemys like those trapped “Mages” are getting so hard pushed around, its way “harder” to kill them with (my?) our “Shotgun” PewPew, also its happening, at least for me, that there are out of map, loot included… will specc out of pushback, for now ^^

will leave my crap char here too

Another small thing: the itemfilter filters out all 2H Weapon - had been nice if that wasnt the case until ~level26-28 (Flurry/MS transition) also FreezeMultiplier Items are shown before Level 70, which, as of my understanding, are “useless” - except for shattering - before someone has the lv70 Cold Bow…

Being able to push them around is not intended and hopefully will be fixed soon.

In the hopes of saving some people a little anguish, do note that Flurry, among other ranged skills, is suffering from an awful bug that makes your shots miss half the time unless you or the enemy repositions. I’d recommend saving this wonderful bowmage build for when the issue is resolved and playing a melee/minion/non-ranged build for the moment.

Thank you for the guide Boardman21!

Have you tried placing your cursor within the bounds of the base of the model of the mob you’re trying to hit? This has always been an issue & may be separate to the one you describe (& I’ve experienced as well).

Oh yeah, I’m fairly confident it’s a separate issue. I’ve been playing bowmage since Lizard IRL popularised it, so I was fairly used to the oddities of ranged combat in LE. I took a break until 0.9 hit and suddenly Flurry just didn’t work right any more.

Do you know if this affects many other ranged attacks besides Flurry? I believe I had this issue with Detonating Arrow as well.

Yup, it’s likely to affect all bow skills.

Only Flurry and DA have projectile pierce issues, Multishot/CinderStrike/Puncture work fine (at least when there are no area collision issues).

  • Channel Flurry has attack speed problems since 0.9.
  • Suckerpunch & Rapid Detonating on DA are not working.
    So kinda hard to test BowMage atm.

I don’t think we’re talking about pierce issues? Rather about aiming towards a mob & not being able to hit it for love nor money until you move.

And it is awesome because of it!

There is no Lootfilter :frowning:
