Ice Floes bug reminder

Unread postby Dtwar Fri Jun 19, 2015 12:39 am

Known bug for a while but as I just now noticed it I assume some others have not yet either so I will share.

If you use Ice Floes at the end of a cast it does not consume the charge so you can get 2 casts out of it. Also works if you already have a charge active so you can get 3 casts out of 2 charges and 5 casts out of 3 charges.

Like right when you finish casting end of cast or 3/4 of the cast? I'll try this out

Is it actually a bug? It's very good for QoL.

It's misleading to say you can get 2 casts out of 1 Ice Floes charge since you can only move for the last X% of the cast.

Say you hit ice floes and started casting a spell. When that spell is 3/4 of the way through, hit ice floes again. It will increase the stack size of your ice floes buff to 2, and when the spell ends it will not be consumed. Repeat this for the next cast (increasing stack size to 3). The next 3 casts will be done normally. So you'll end up getting 5 casts out of ice floes, instead of 3, if you chain them together.

Ohhh, I was already wondering why I could cast sometimes more than 3 spells on blackhand mythic phase 1 while dodging the debris. This might be the reason.
Thanks for the clue. ;)

Heard something about it, but wasn't quite sure. Good to see it written out!

Yea im fairly sure it isnt a bug. i discovered this myself back in the beginning of SoO (my first real progression raid) and have been using it ever since xD was beyond helpful for mythic blackhand lol
