Shazam is bugged. Again.

    It seems to be happening to others but I have video representation of the issues being had with Shazam during the attempts for the 50% feat.

    The first video shows Shazam available at a split second then the famous Spear of Destiny trick occurs and shuts down the cog, now in my experience, if the Spear of Destiny shows up, even if you are currently using the cog on Shazam, it will push you out of it and stop the switch from being available. Now, I'm okay with that concept...but the rest.

    To give context to the video, the event occurs at 2:14. The spear of destiny cuts off Shazam and becomes unavailable the rest of the fight (Note the madness meter is only at 76). Now, I apologize in advance there is quite a bit of profanity, it was just a way in the heat of the moment to express our feelings.

    Ok that mess aside, enjoy this next video. Talk about nonsense, here we have Shazam being stuck in the red box multiple times over due to the Spear of Destiny. Now I know what you're thinking, it's only unlucky that Shazam was unavailable for each occurrence, especially if it's true that after every Spear of Destiny, Shazam won't be available for 30 seconds. AGAIN, PLEASE EXCUSE THE PROFANITY, just know that doing a feat and being robbed by random chance caused solely by the game seems to draw out the worst in anyone. You can laugh, sit back and gasp or say how could we have done anything different and the only conclusion I could come up with was to wipe. Take a look...

    I HAVE A SOLUTION TO THE SHAZAM PROBLEM. The feat itself says you have to keep the bar above 50% the rest of the raid, what if that can be changed to after every boss fight? Keep the 50% after the fights are done they have to be above 50%, but instead can we turn this feat into, you can go under 50% during the fight but as long as you finish above 50% you are good to go.

    EXAMPLE: Mordru fight you'll notice even in our videos we ignore Shazam (we have to in this current situation as getting Shazam would bring our meter to under 50%), but what if we got those, then after we get close to beating the fight we have to bring the meter back up to 50% and above?

    Up until today, at least in my experience as well as several others', he used to only gitch in the last boss fight. But today I attemptd SGe with three separate groups and he glitched in the Tala fight. Progress seems to be going in the wrong direction on this one.

    It's not just in elite. Even in the event and normal versions Shazam is bugged. Seems now that he will only let someone activate him once, if at all

    Shazam is not offering wisdom of Solomon on last boss in shattered gotham. Again.

    Did you wipe? Was he still bugged?

    I agree Shazam Cog isnt available had us wiping at the last boss because it would only appear once at 50%

    I like JLD overall but holy **** are the bugs starting to piss me off. Between fubar Wisdom of Solomon, deleted Deviant Killer Tragedy, and Hellish Reflections lacking proper indicators initially, this episode's feats have been consistently excellent at wasting time. Have been consistently dicked out of Raving Mad and Mord-who by Shazam's cog getting perma-bugged during the Mordu fight.

    Wait..hold on. An update broke something utterly unrelated to said update?

    Semi off topic but, while at it, the same update appears to have broken the way Phoenixes interact with Fire tanks in GoM; taunts haven't worked on them for myself or other fire tanks in my groups since the update that broke Shazam hit.

    No Chance to finish the Raid. Shazam is borken.

    2nd boss fight?

    6th week into content and he is worse than ever now. He offered one cog on last boss today and never offered another one. This is the third adjustment that’s been made to him and he’s literally worse than ever. I simply don’t understand this. Can we please make it a point of emphasis to get him fixed ASAP. First it was making clearing elite harder then that was repaired but it’s was making feats harder, now it’s making the last boss unbeatable even in reg, if you get one cog in a pug and the burn is bad no way you can kill him on one cog. DEVS PLEASE GET SHAZAM WORKING CORRECTLY!

    Don’t hit the very first cog that comes up, that should reset him.
  18. AV Loyal Player

    That's not it at all. During the Mordru fight, Wisdom gets interrupted, seemingly by Spear of Destiny encasement, then never reappears from that point on until Madness reaches 100%.

    This game is starting to get absolutely unbearable with bugs upon bugs upon bugs and I honestly don’t know how much more I can take. Even the new skins are bugged.

    This has happened to me four times today. I'm in the process of sending a bug report via the Daybreak Support page on the website with video links (waiting on the PlayStation to finish uploading, and YouTube to finish processing), but figured I'd post here as well to let the bug fixers that read the forum tally me up as another person who has experienced the issue.
