    Title: Game freezes/crashes in Spindleskog (Extreme)
    Reproduction Rate: ~100%
    Blocker? Yes
    Details:

    While in Spindelskog (Extreme) the game runs oddly. I get roughly my normal FPS, but every 2-3 seconds the screen freezes for a second. When I use Disabling Shot on anything (and the mob doesn't die from it) it drops to less than a frame per second, for a bit, and then crashes to desktop. One time it stayed running long enough that I snapped out of it (I think the Disabling Shot debuff might have worn off) and it returned to the previous stutter every 2-3 seconds. Another Disabling Shot crashed it. I have not noticed an issue with any other skills.

    If I fought mobs in the scene but didn't use Disabling Shot, I had no crashes.

    Also, I was not having any of these issues in the Normal or Hard mode versions, or in any other scenes. It was only happening in Spindelskog Extreme.


    Steps to Reproduce: Go to Spindelskog (Extreme) and fire disabling shot at something.

    Same thing in Ruined Keep.
    I play fire mage.

    I havent crashed even a single time in last 30 days, but today multiple times. So it seems to be something with latest patch.

    NOTES:
    Everything goes fine, for a time. I can keep killing the normal mobs and nothing weird happens. It works fine at Mysterious swamp ( killing legendary and sobek ) and at Ruined keep.
    Could be related to killing high level boss, as the Ruined keep troll boss. Once it goes under 10k hp, things go south.
    I noticed that I get tiny bit more time before crash ( 10seconds ) If I have time to cancel my fire ring target reticle. After 10s ( or so ), fps 1 and some seconds later unity dies.

    I continue testing/crashing, if I can get something more out of it.

    Try /debug and see if you're getting warnings counting up.

    I ran around the keep, killed bunch of trolls, named and normal with satyrs. Nothing wierd.
    After attacking the boss for a while, I died, got back up started to charge my fire ring, target reticle up and "Stackoverflow errors full of debug". With 0 Fps, I could not scroll nor study it anymore then crash.
    Ice Field might contribute

    EDIT: Ice field definitely contribute. Team mate crashed seconds after I casted it first time to a boss of ruined keep

    No idea; haven't tried extreme mode since. I was waiting for scaling loot to happen, but as Chris is currently at least four degrees of distraction from the distraction which prevented him from getting around to it in the first place, I feel it is unlikely to happen in the near future. Next time I'm in the zone, I'll pop over to extreme and see.

    Decided to hop on and go check it out. It doesn't seem to be happening anymore. At least, I was unable to trigger it. Did have an annoying instance of a ~6 minute fight with a shadow spider, whose corpse promptly dissolved away on death. It will take me days to get over the loss of 5 gold and 3 corpse wax.
