    What they really need to do is just reverse the changes they made to the way the healthbar shows regeneration.

    That's when it started, when they changed it from showing regen in realtime to now showing only every 5 seconds or whatever it is.

    Worth testing it to see if that fixes it. I'm pretty confident it will.

    That bug has been around for ages. I recall submitting a bug report (with video) about it several months ago. My guess is that it is a complex problem that they won't have time to fix before release.

    R50 has a pinned topic in the bug section under combat - I linked this thread there. So far no bugid has been issued.

    So.. is it still the case that these cannot be reproduced internally? @Lexie ? And if so, do you guys run your clients on the same network as the server?

    The R51 notes suggest that the devs reproduced this where an Avatar dies and zones. I've seen it while in the same zone with no deaths. The most reproducibility I get is with Strength of Earth and Torpor used together (leading to gradual reduction where max health caps at half before I finally relog). My observation is that these bugs started when the 'downsides' were added to each buff skill a few releases ago (bad math with that?). Now that the 'downsides' are being removed, I'm hoping that fixes the problem.
