Brief bug summary: Howling Gale's stacks still reset upon dying, despite the patch notes saying otherwise.

More details:

Before v208, Howling Gale's Wind Energy stacks would reset if you were to die. For reference, this would be like if Battle Mage's Altar of Annihilation, Wild Hunter's Primal Grenade, or Cannoneer's Cannon of Mass Destruction would reset to 0 if you died.

The v208 patch notes were supposed to change it so that this no longer occurs:

However, I tested it, and the stacks are still reset.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Play a Wind Archer
2. Let Howling Gale's Wind Energy stacks charge (it can go up to 2, with 1 every 20 seconds)
3. Die and revive. The stacks will be reset

Character name: GreenGales

Character level: 250

Character job: Wind Archer

World name: Bera

    Update to this:

    So this issue only occurs if I use Buff Freezers after I die. If I do not use Buff Freezers, then the Howling Gale stacks will not be removed. I recorded a quick video to showcase it (now 720p):
