Fixed Backstab angle....

    Something is going on with the angle in which backstab will fire off properly.

    I mainly play rogue and have noticed on a huge number of samples of being CLEARLY behind a mob, it doesn't fire off and gives you "You must be behind" message.
    But then, it will fire off as if I'm behind them in the most wonky of positions thinking to myself " how the hell did that land?"

    The EQ Rogue discord has a few of us that's noticed something is off lately so If you guys can please check it for us <3

    Is this limited to TLP, or live as well? I will have to roll a baby rogue to test this out if it is being reported on live as well.

    Not "Scientific" but this is as far as i can get on a test dummy before getting the "you must be behind" message, left and right side.

    Someone turned the lights off in your Guild Hall.

    It feels to me like someone adjusted the rear arc angle from 135 degrees to 35 degrees. It's really bad.

    Character: Level 11 Rogue (Main)
    Zone: Butcherblock Mountains 3
    Location: -999.49, -2816.30, -0.84, 460.11

    Description: Backstab keeps giving "You must be behind youe opponent to backstab!" error message. I am behind it, not behind and off to the side, not to the side but behind. The only time I can get a backstab is when the mob is running away. DX 11 downgrade strikes again! Kudos to your testing department.

    Zone, location, time of day, and/or what kind of boots the character is wearing is irrelevant.

    I think there was a bug report on this and an internal fix done. It may not go live till patch day.

    - Thats why I couldnt find the post, its literally this post.

    Free place some lightstones or greater lightstones in your guild hall.

    Or remove DX11, which is only causing trouble.

    Everyone is always so critical of me when I post. I can't do anything about DX11.

    and dx11 literally has nothing to do with backstab angle. What you render on the screen doesn't effect what angle a skill needs to work

    The game is full of surprises. :D

    I just looked at this on another PC and my goodness is it dark. It looks a lot better on my home PC. It was the arena on a lvl 25 barbarian with no ultravision, so not much else I could do. I had no clue it looked that dark though lol.
