So I know this is a warlock specific bug, but given how much of a big deal is made about chaos wave, I felt the AJ community should know about this since it's going to alter the way some players play by quite a bit.

An MMO-Champion poster (gbtg) discovered this today, and I felt it was necessary to post this on AJ, but currently, if you cast chaos wave on a target (while in meta form), and you LOS the warlock the second the cast is made and it lands on you, it vanishes into thin air and does 0 damage.

Tested this in a duel with a guildie, on a target dummy while messing with my UI to confirm it is indeed the case. All a player has to do now while playing against a demo lock is stand by a pillar. LOS the minute you see the big giant wave, and 0 damage.

Enjoy AJ'ers.

Yeah, Hand of Gul'dan will fall under the same category I'd assume, though I never tried it on the dummies on that spell. I'm almost certain these are the only spells in the game that work this way, but it certainly puts a dent on demonology's ability to be viable. Doesn't break it, just harms it pretty hard.

I'm just merely posting the information here as a re-post from mmo-champion's warlock subforum since I figured demo gets a lot of attention here, and since I have junkies access, it'd get a lot more attention if I posted this here for others to see since it does alter gameplay.

I was wondering why sometimes it doesnt hit for some reason. I guess should use demonic leap at those times.

LoSing chaos wave is pretty widely known, along with the fact that you can BoP it to completely negate the damage.

Its not a bug lol the spell deals physical dmg aswell, and u can priest vanish it and such too, people who complain so much about the demo lock right now does not know how to counter it, sure dmg is to high but so is fucking 10000 other shit too and u can counter it, ect NS clone warriors reck, bash trinket or such,
People think everything is the same? spells are built diffrently, thats sayin that if u run outside the ring before mage as landed it, its a bug?
