Fixed Internally Raid Main Assist setting stops working after that player zones

Discussion in 'Bug Reports' started by Skuz, Feb 16, 2020.

    Trying to reproduce this and not having any luck (if this is still for sure happening).
    I load up two characters and form a raid.
    A makes B MainAssist
    B targets an NPC and gets the target ring
    B zones out
    A continues to see the target ring
    B zones back in
    B still has the MainAssist role, and the previously targeted NPC has the target ring. Targeting different NPCs results in the target ring.

    What am I missing here?

    Most noticeable when your raid is doing multiple instances, Once you have zoned into a new zone, the main assists target doesn't get a ring, You have to reset MA in the window to get it working correctly.

    I would look at more than just the target ring. I've had people (I have not verified it after the last patch) who say /assist main (social command/button) is not working all the time during raids. Try using /assist main after zoning and anything else you can think of.

    Unfortunately, on raids I mostly heal and thus I cannot give you personal information on whether /assist main is functioning correctly.

    the scenario we're testing should be

    A makes B MainAssist in Zone 1
    B targets NPC in Zone 1 and gets target ring
    A and B go to zone 2.
    B targets NPC in Zone 2, but no longer gets target ring.


    alternatively.

    A makes B MainAssist in Zone 1
    B targets NPC in Zone 1 and gets target ring
    C uses /assist raid in Zone 1 and gets B's target
    A,B, C go to zone 2.

    B targets NPC in Zone 2, but no longer gets target ring.
    C uses /assist raid in Zone 2, but does not get B's target.

    Happens to us constantly on Mangler, since we're doing multiple LDoN raids a night, and every time we go into a new LDoN instance we have to reset the MA

    Also, changing the raid leader makes main assist and master looter fail. Every time the raid leader is changed they have to remove and reassign them to get it to work. Unless that has been fixed by Darkpaw recently.

    Been seeing same issue. It seems like when the MA (who is also the RL) dies and gets rezzed, the MA has to be reset.

    I have tried the following, all without any luck reproducing:

    I load up two characters and form a raid.
    A makes B MainAssist
    B targets an NPC and gets the target ring
    B zones out
    A continues to see the target ring
    B zones back in. MA persists.

    A makes B MainAssist in Zone 1
    B targets NPC in Zone 1 and gets target ring
    A and B go to zone 2.
    B targets NPC in Zone 2, MA persists

    A makes B MainAssist in Zone 1
    B targets NPC in Zone 1 and gets target ring
    C uses /assist raid in Zone 1 and gets B's target
    A,B, C go to zone 2.
    B targets NPC in Zone 2, target ring is visible.
    C uses /assist raid in Zone 2, and MA's target is acquired.

    I also tried Froglok's suggesting of having the RL be the MA, dying and being res'd.

    I am open to any and all suggestions that might lead to a 100% reproduction, but so far I am empty handed. I must reproduce this in order for it to be fixed.

    Just out of curiousity, are you testing this on your isolated, lag-free development server...or are you logging in to an actual, laggy as hell, live server and testing?
  9. Fanra Augur

    I see you are using /assist raid. Have you also tried /assist main?
  10. adetia Augur

    I (as raid leader) have to manually reset the MA every time he zones, so multiple times a night. It didn't used to be like that, but it wasnt the last patch that broke it, its been at least a few since its been working more.

    We don't change raidleaders, so that isn't the cause for us.
  11. Karhar Augur

    So what i notice it also isnt everyone that witnesses this, 90% of the time when someone else is having an issue not seeing the MA, I don't have that issue, but we reset the MA before every event.
  12. Duder Augur

    Are you trying this in base zones or DZs?
  13. Barbwarrior Augur

    seems to be more the etwindow set to raid assist stops working more than actual raid assist?
  14. Allayna Augur

    I couldn't reproduce the above MA issues in a static zone tonight with just 6 toons.

    I still can reproduce the following:

    A invites B to raid.
    A makes B MA.
    A makes B Raid Leader.
    A and B zone.
    /assist main and using extended target MA are broken and no ring is present despite the "A" still being assigned in the raid tool.
    The same is true of any of the raid tool features, mark, assist, looter...

    The constant swapping of raid leader is problematic and more prevalent due to the farming of type 19 augs throughout the week and became more noticeable since TBL for that reason.

    We have not been able to reproduce this issue internally, but we'll keep it on our radar. If you encounter any additional repro steps we can try, please share them.
  16. lockjaws Augur

    They literally posted how this can be reproduced. Please use a normal server, with a normal raid count, and try your reproduction steps again.

    Reproduced this specific case. Thank you.

    Now I'm waiting to see what else happens when this gets patched. ;)

    Player A is raid leader
    Player A invites players B & C to join the raid
    Player A & B zones in to raid zone
    Player A makes Player B Main Assist
    Player C zones in to raid zone
    Player C does not see the Main Assist target.

    This is pretty much what I think has been happening for us.

    It maybe that players joining the raid after MA is set doesn't see it, its been a while and we have been leaving marking MAs until the last possible moment.
