All auto attacks need to be changed to work like wand auto attack if lag is not removed entirely and indefinitely in the near future (3 months at the most). There needs to be a large change that will help with lag drastically, such as one or more of the following: new hardware removing all item procs re-tuning swarm pets to not require both defensive and offensive calculations like players severely lowering the amount of Dots If not, then all auto attacks need to be changed to work like wand auto attacks in that they do not interfere with the casting of abilities and vice versa. Even if this change to auto attack was enacted it would still be a good idea to implement some of the aforementioned changes. Current melee/ranged auto attack serves as a "lag multiplier" for those who depend on it for procs and DPS. For example roughly 80% of the time my myth/ethereal procs trigger off my auto attack despite the fact I am using attack abilities much more frequently. Obviously this is a large variable for considering content balance even before ethereal procs. The random occurrence and severity of lag makes it nearly impossible to account for with any consistency for the purpose of content balance other than the fact it ALWAYS negatively impacts 'melee auto attackers' in their performance.
