Auto attack bug

This has been going on for about a month now. This is absolutely murdering me in raids. Is there any word of it being fixed yet? Any word of it even being acknowledged?

In the meantime, never target the boss while facing him, I face away, tab target, cast hunters mark, escape to lose target. You can see if the bug is active when you do this because while facing away it will say on your screen you must be facing the target so you know you just saved yourself some grief.

I haven’t noticed an auto attack issue, but that’s not to say it isn’t there. What is the issue exactly?

If you target a boss in the raid you occasionally just start shooting.

Ah I see, that makes sense why I’ve been randomly pulling mobs in the open world when tab targeting when that used to not happen before. Hopefully this does get fixed!

I noticed, at least in Torghast (I’ve not raided much this tier) that manually left clicking an enemy usually doesn’t initiate the auto attack, whereas right clicking them does. This is intentional and has always worked this way, so perhaps it has something to do with tab targeting, though I don’t know enough about the situation to really speculate.

Left clicking also does it, but its periodic so you might not notice for a while then bam it happens.

Intermittent, not periodic - it is completely unpredictable whether or not it is going to fire. If there was known behavior or some specific interval that triggered the auto attack you could play around it, but that isn’t the case here.

Hello Hunters.

We’re working on the auto attack issue and testing a fix for it. We’ll let you know if our fix addresses the issue and when you can expect to see it in game.

This bug is really frustrating and been ongoing for way too long now. Is there an update on this pls?

Takes a month to fix a auto attack bug for the only bow class in game but fixes the FoV in a day. :thinking:

Any update on this? As a BM hunter, this is a terrible bug and makes every pull very ackward.

Fixed in latest hotfixes
