Why is the Banshee Evade Attack so strange?

    It feels uncharacteristically clunky. I have to let go of any directional keys (WASD) while evading, otherwise the intended evade-attack turns into a delayed normal attack, which often proves lethal. Is that just a problem on my end?

    Looks the same on spess mahreen side. It's just a complete roll animation and then the attack.

    I only have that problem with the banshee, not any other of the Eldar melee classes, such as the warlock or the scorpion, who both have a different animation set from the banshee

    I don't have the problem with the Scorpion, but I wasn't ever able to perform an evade attack with a Banshee. I'm guessing that might be of great help, but now I'll try what you had. I've had the same issue with Sprint Attack... the only case where I was able to do it was sprinting for over 30m without any change in direction and then maybe...

    That is odd anyway. Thanks for asking, at this point, I was thinking the Devs deliberately had the Banshee without Evade Attack, for some obscure reason. :rolleyes:

    I've found the same issue with Striking Scorpions in the past. Maybe they fixed it for Scorpions, but not yet for Banshees?

    Semi-hijacking this since I've noticed it mostly on the skerp but why does it feel like orks can roll out of my dbash stun?

    Thing with sprint-attack is that you need to lightly tap the melee button. Press it even slightly longer than a little tap and it will perform a normal attack instead.

    Every race can do that. It's just a delayed response to your client, the foe does not roll while stunned, but on their screen they actually roll before you have a chance to stun them. It's intended, as said by the devs.

    What do you mean by "evade attack", I just dont understand? Is it an ability to attack immediately after a cartwheel/backflip/roll is performed, without 1-2 seconds delay for "recovering"? If so, then I dont face this problem anymore - havent faced, in fact, long ago, neither with banshees nor scorpions - I can attack right after evade is performed. I remember this annoying bug had been present for a long time but, I believe, it was successfully fixed

    Well, while pressing any directional input during the evade, the banshee wastes possibly less than half a second by performing a mundane light attack, which can prove crucial at times.

    This should explain it best

    Ah, see now - to be honest, never once noticed it myself though I mainly play for banshee, guess this is indeed a bug
