edited January 2017 in Bug Reporting
I submitted a ticket to nexon, and they told me the bug isn't reproducible. Then after badgering them for a few days, they told me its intended (Which Seems absolutely Ridiculous).

I'm posting to find out how many other people Believe this should be considered a bug or not.

(As a side note, Flame Haze and Mist explosion are F/P's Highest Dps Skills, And they only ever really get used on bosses. And as comparison, I can Easily Solo Hellux as I/L With my range, But cannot on F/P Because I cant Use my primary bossing skills on it).

When using Flame Haze on Many of the Larger bosses, Poison mist Is Created well outside the boss's Hitbox, So you are unable to effectively boss as F/P (Occurs on Commerci Union PQ, Pink Bean, Gollux Stage 2/3, Horntail (Best Example is Hellux Which I made a video of))

Please Ignore the deaths I was having a lot of Frame Rate Lag when I made the Video, Making it harder to play.

I want to get player opinions on If this should be considered a bug or not.

    I've been maining a F/P mage for about 3 months now, and I always thought it was intended. I even read guides prior to opening this character that mentioned this, so I simply got used to casting Poison Mist manually from the get-go. I don't see this changing any time soon, or at all, though it would really make life easier for us.

    The mist always spawns on the ground, which may not be in a useful position for large bosses such as gollux, HT, etc.

    It's annoying but not a bug. Perhaps fire will be revamped one day and have the clunky mess that it is fixed up.

    hmm... Ive always thought of it as a bug ever since flame haze came out... Since it drastically lowers FP Damage output... Its nice to hear other peoples opinions though. Still Casting Poison mist is annoying because it has a longer Casting speed compared to Flame haze. (Its got a similar delay to Explosion, When compared to Paralyze Or Flame haze)

    Anyway thanks for the info.
