View Full Forums : Radiant Cure bug??

06-19-2003, 06:47 AM
As some of you may know, my wife plays a 63 Gnome Shadow Knight. In a group, she uses a Heavy Windrider's Lance, but when we duo, she often pulls out her epic. The proc on a SK epic, if you're not sure, is Soul Consumption, a life tap over time for 60 HPs over 4 ticks.

Yesterday we were screwing around in the Iksar Jail in Sebilis, farming cash gems and basically having fun. She got a stack of DoTs on her by one of the necros, so I popped my Radiant Cure.

Kensha: Dear, I think your cure took away my Soul Consumption.
Me: Soul Consumption? You mean your epic proc??
Kensha: Yeah, it just proced and now it's gone.

So we waited until the timer reset and tried it again, and sure enough, Radiant Cure took away her epic proc. We tried it several times to confirm it. Soul Consumption has some poison, disease or curse counters on it, and Radiant Cure will remove it.

Is this something new that we just never noticed before, or is this a legitimate bug?

I take it it shows up as a detrimental spell on both the target and the caster?

They fixed that problem with spells like Leach by separating the spell into two parts: the detrimental -hp part on the target, and the beneficial +hp part that is autocast (the "recourse").
Leach: (
Leach Recourse: (

I guess Soul Consumption needs to be split into two spells the same way...

That's what I figured, but what I need to know is this: Has it always been this way and we just didn't notice, or is this a new bug that we discovered. If it's a new bug, how can we bring Sony's attention to it fast?

It hasn't always been this way, but it got busted this last patch. RC from my druid also used to remove my sk's Aura of Pain (detrimental, can't click it off) AC tap -- but that got fixed and now RC doesn't remove it any more... but now removes Soul Consumption, which it didn't used to.

Also... ask your SK wife if the Soul Consumption proc is healing her right now as it is expected to -- you may or may not be surprised to find that... it isn't -- and in fact is having the opposite effect.

So until SoE fixes that (it's been acknowledged as accidentally broken), RC removing Soul Consumption is helping her. :D

Edit: Changed Aura of Hate to Aura of Pain.
