    Does Nexon even know? This skill is actually really important to Phantoms at least.

    I'm also a bowmaster main and I'm getting really tired of this skill not working properly 60% of the time for 6months (if not more). It would be nice if we can finally get a fix.

    Posting again to note that this bug is still occurring after the v186 Override update.

    Looking for Nexon to acknowledge this as a bug.
    It's really annoying that a core skill is unreliable for anything.

    Even if it did work it's pretty useless since it only lasts a few seconds. At least 2 minutes would be good. And before I saw your thread I was going to post about it as well.

    Arrow Blaster is supposed to last 30 seconds when installed with a 5 second cooldown after installing.
    Right now, one of 3 things will happen when you try to install it.

    1. Arrow Blaster does not install and the 5 second cooldown is applied.
    2. Arrow Blaster installs and less than 2 seconds later, it disappears. The 5 second cooldown is also applied.
    3. Arrow Blaster actually installs for 30 seconds and the 5 second cooldown applies, but it doesn't matter since Arrow Blaster would be available again.

    The 3rd scenario is how it should be 100% of the time. It has only worked like 50% of the time in the past 7 months. Recently, it has actually gotten WORSE, where Arrow Blaster installs correctly only like 20% of the time.

    PLEASE FIX!

    I'm aware the VFM AlexF has forwarded this, which is very appreciatied. However, this is not acceptable. The arrow blaster bug has been around for almost a whole year now. It slows grinding down immensely and really puts Bowmasters in an incredibly awkward position. Seriously, this needs to be fixed ASAP.

    Thank you in advance

    Bug Type: Skill Functionality

    Brief Bug Summary: When the turret of Arrow Blaster is set up, it can sometimes have the tendency to disappear before the turret's duration ends(and infuriatingly can happen right as you set up the turret)

    Steps to reproduce:
    Step 1. Set up the Arrow Blaster Turret.
    Step 2A. An easy way to see if the turret functions properly is if you use Arrow Blaster again on a group of mobs while the turret is already set up and/or try to set up another turret during the cooldown duration.
    Step 2B. Hunt normally and check to see if the turret disappears at the proper duration.

    Character Name: Trishock

    Character Level: 221

    Character Job: Bowmaster

    World Name: Scania

    Date and time of the incident: reported at around 7/21/17 at around 8 PM but realistically, the skill might have been possibly dysfunctional ever since Arrow Blaster's turret was given a 5 second cooldown to prevent BMs from constant repositioning without any setbacks.

    Arrow Blaster started having this bug actually quite a bit after they added the 5 sec cooldown. Arrow Blaster has had the disappearance bug since specifically the Secret Stories update back in October 2016 when they decreased Arrow Blaster's firing rate. (Hence the thread being created in October 2016.)

    Good to know exactly when. I just don't remember since I had periods where i was inactive with the game. There is no way I'm playing Dream Defender proper until this bug is fixed.

    If this got forwarded, then why, when I asked a live chat support person whether this bug was on their internal bug list, was it NOT on their bug list? I submitted a video to this same live chat support person and I truly hope they ACTUALLY put it on the list this time...

    Would love for this to get fixed. It's rather annoying trying to guess if a main source of DPS is going to let you down and cause you to fail a run or something.I believe it's still bugged in KMS to this very day. One can be hopeful GMS decides to take action first.

    What does that even mean though. The problem isn't that it doesn't do damage. It does do damage once it's installed. The problem is with installing it at all in the first place.

    I hope it's just poor wording on Nexon's part. I guess we'll see once the servers go up.


    ----
    Edit: Problem remains, it just failed on me again after the patch and cooldown was applied. Gonna test it more when servers get more crowded.
