Bug type: Skill
World: Scania
IGN: Thundertala
Level/Job: 230 Arch Mage (Ice/Lightning)
Date/Time of Occurrence: After the patch on August 30

Brief bug summary:

The Arch Mage (Ice/Lightning) 5th job skill Ice Age no longer leaves ice on the ground when casted. Under normal circumstances, there is supposed to be ice for a brief time that does DoT to enemies.

Steps to reproduce:

Go to any map with monsters in it, and cast the Ice Age skill. Observe that the skill does not leave ice on the ground.

    Yup, can confirm this bug is occurring. This is an essential skill for I/L mobbing/farming and it really cripples the class not to have it working.

    Yup, can confirm there is no "30 seconds of damage and freezing effects". The main blast still works though.

    Much sadness. It was not fixed in the 08/31 unscheduled maintenance.

    Can confirm, am experiencing this bug too - even after both unscheduled maintenances.

    The lingering frost of Ice Age has become an important part of I/L's gameplay, making up a large portion of their mobbing capabilities as well as being important for maintaining freeze stacks on bosses, meaning that this bug impacts the class negatively to a larger degree than it may first appear.

    Apparently I was the first to send in a ticket about this immediately after the patch on August 30. The replying GMs all seemed to think that I was imagining things for some reason -- maybe not enough people complained about it, assuming that others would do it in their stead lol. They had me repair my installer, take a video, and a whole bunch of other crazy stuff.

    Anyway, thought you'd all appreciate a copy of the response I received today to my ticket:

    Greetings Mapler,

    Thank you for contacting Nexon America Customer Support.

    I understand that this issue was not resolved after the unscheduled maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience that this may have cause you. Regarding this issue I have already forwarded this to our Game Team and they are currently working hard to identify the cause of this issue. Please keep posted on our website for future updates about this issue. We will also be contacting you once the investigation is done or when we receive new updates from our Game Team. For now, I will be closing this ticket since all we need to do is wait for our Game Team's update but don't worry, I can assure you that this issue is being looked into.

    If you encounter any other issues or questions regarding the game, feel free to contact us again. You may also visit our Support Page to check for Solutions to any issues that you encounter in the game.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding.
    Sincerely,

    GM Itiran

    So... any word if this will be addressed in the next standard maintenance?
    Kinda a showstopper for us training I/Ls....

    Can confirm this bug as well. Incredibly frustrating. Could be years before they even care about this.

    -_- I noticed this day one and sent a ticket only to have them tell me they forwarded the issue to devs. Not really having fun training like this, Ice Age is a game changer.
