I’m not sure if this is actually a bug, but it has proven to be a thorn in my build.
So far every displacement ability I’ve seen does not interrupt enemy castings, so the fact that this position swap effect is cancelling my only defense skill early feels wrong to me.
I have 2 idols that give me a chance to trigger Smite on hit with throwing attacks. (total of 14% chance)
I have 2 points in Sentinel class’ Axe Thrower node (16% chance to throw an axe on hit) as well as the Riverbend Grasp unique gloves that have a 15% chance to throw an axe (separate CD).
(Separate bug related to the axe throws, they are supposed to be thrown at the “nearest enemy” but they don’t, they throw in a straight line in the direction the player is facing. It’s sending many axes into the void instead of at enemies.)
I’ve got axes flying out roughly every 0.5 seconds, cleaving through enemies and triggering smite.
My problem comes when using Rebuke to absorb incoming damage/heal/regen mana, the self displacement from Descend instantly cancels Rebuke. It actually interrupts anything I’m doing.
I had to take the point out of Decend after dying to a group of enemies I couldn’t get any distance from because of repeated smite Descending just dragging me right back into them with no way of defending myself via Rebuke.
