    Issue seems to have resolved. Not sure if it was a one-off, or if was just the old QA build i was using.

    Well, it seems this issue is back with QA 601.
    This time i noticed the buff icon flashed under my avatar's name for abut 1 second then disappeared.
    So the buff icon is not persisting as long as it should.
    This time the issue arose in Elysium mines

    Title:
    Reproduction Rate: not 100%, but most of the time (when it doesn't fizzle)
    Blocker? No
    Details:
    1. From what I can tell from my testing is that the issue appears intermittently.
    2. I was in the Elysuium Mines when I ran across the issue (haven't tried elsewhere in the word).
    3. The skill does work. I was able to heal myslf using the skill, the icon appeared in the buff area, and it would overwrite the skill if it was successfully cast (ie. the duration would go back to the full time limit).
    4. Heals would get applied, as long as the icon appeared in the buff area.
    5. When successfully cast, the vfx also appears on the screen, as it should.
    6. However, the spell will miss, not fizzle but miss. I noticed that in the chat log there was text that the skill missed, "You used Elysium Illumination but hit nothing."
    7. When you miss, hit nothing, the VFX appears on screen. There isn't a buff icon that appears in the buffs area. There isn't any healing effect being applied to the character either.
    8. it doesn't matter if you are in combat or not, you can miss when using the skill and the above issues are noticed.
    I believe that the issue is that the skill misses, whereas before I don't believe it did. In the previous builds I believe it hit every time. I don't know if this is the bug. Or if this is the desired behavior now, the bug would be the appearance of the success VFX appearing. But if this is the desired behavior, a miss VFX is probably needed to indicate the miss (and not a fizzle).

    Steps to Reproduce:
    - cast the spell (hopefully it doesn't fizzle. if it fizzles, keep casting)
    - if the spell doesn't fizzle, you are in one of two states: it succeeded in hitting something or it missed
    - in both states, you will see the VFX (the god rays shining down on you)
    - watch the chat log text to see if it missed
    - if it misses, that may be the bug
    - if it is now supposed to miss, the VFX is the bug​

    @Lexie

    Soothing Rain also exhibits the same behavior, if it misses when cast then the VFX plays but nothing else happens.

    @Lexie, @Attenwood, seems like this bug hasn't been addressed yet. It still is a problem with the latest build.

    Bug #: 54081, thank you!
    (We already had a bug open for soothing rain so this is for Elysium)

    I think that was for a different bug, but maybe the same fix. I thought the other bug was sooting rain lasting after dieing. The bug I mentioned above is for the 'nothing hit' issue that elyssium has.
