Sorcerous/Spell Shades bugged?

Postby fudomyou » Mon Dec 03, 2007 9:35 am

Has anyone else experienced the bug where the spell shades and sorcerous shades aggro from an even more ridiculous distance than before? Last night, my guild cleared the room of arcane elementals just after the Curator when we saw 12 ghosts run at us from several floors above.

We killed the first and wiped horribly to the triple sorcerous shades, and later, we found out that the one we killed was the last spell shade - from the room before the Ethereal thieves.

This has happened twice now, so I can't think that this is just a coincidence.

Yeah we've had a couple of funny pulls recently.

Two weeks ago we were having a 5min break after the curator, as I went to drink I noticed that I was in combat, even though we were all at the top of the ramp. Up came the entire room of arcane patrollers, mana worms, etc. All of which were targeting our druid who was AFK behind the rest of us.

Then last week we'd cleared to Aran, drank, buffed up, were about to go in and all of a sudden we were in combat. All 3 (4?) groups of sorcerous shades/spell shades came charging down and killed us.

Happened for us too.

We were on those mobs before illhoof when we noticed +10 mobs running ramparts to us.

Same thing happened to us Friday night. Wasn't sure what happened. We didn't wipe but it was indeed f'cked up. We couldn't figure it out and the people with experience in the instance all had never seen it happen before.

Yeah! Same damn room. Luckily they didn't come down until AFTER we cleared the room. We were all sitting there drinking and it happened.

Makes me wonder, the people this is happening to, do they have DMC: Vengeance equipped. I know they supposedly changed it NOT to proc off environmental changes but maybe something being done by those shades is causing it to proc? Or maybe it's another spell. Interestingly enough, it didn't target me but went straight for one of our clothies but that may be because they were rebuffing or something.

Nope. Warrior MT/Bear OT...nobody had the DMC. So it's not that.

Edit: Actually, I'm a dirty liar. Our warrior had to leave a bit before that, so we actually were using Bear MT/Pally OT, but the pally didn't have the card either.

We've gotten spiders showing up randomly at the steps before the ballroom, and lots of shades aggroing just past Aran.

Its happend to us twice now, in 2 weeks. Once in the room with the Homonculi, we pulled 2-3 other groups, the second time in the little library dealy after Aran we pulled the group on the top of the ramp while doing the group at the bottom of the ramp.

Neither time had anyone with a vengeance card.

It's worth noting that the sorcerous shades will aggro from anywhere in the instance if someone with the debuff they apply gets healed and the current shade is dead. At least, that is what we found out on a run.

I don't know if it was a bug or intended function of the debuff, but we tested it and it was consistant for us that night

This happened to me yesterday. Was in the big circular room with the arcane elementals and I saw ONE spell shade coming down the ramp. I didn't think much of it at the time and pulled it. Soon after, the rest of them popped out and laid waste to the raid. It was so fast I couldn't even DI anybody before we got smashed in the face.

I was using DMC:V at the time too.

Happened to me again in the week's raid - we called a break after the elementals room (I wasn't using DMC: Vengeance) and took some time off to help some of the Kara newbies get their quests in order/summon some latecomers. Then, when we got back to the room, there was a singleton spell shade sitting there... he was linked to the top floor.
