Oak Shield IV can be broken through
i can confirm this,i can't find i replay of it, but i had a sedna cast max lvl pounce 2 seconds into a shield. It applied the damage and interrupted my teleport (scroll)
Shield IV can be broken with Silence for sure.
Basically, if you are teleporting sometimes you can break through Shield IV's stun immunity. DA does this as well. However, you can't do it at the beginning of the cast you have to do it just before the "woosh" as they disappear.
You cannot do this to Shield III or Shield V.
I'm busy avoiding work, so I looked into this. The end result is that I'm not sure what's going on.
Shield IV and Shield V use the same code. The only difference is that there is an function at the end of the Shield code that only activates if Shield V is used on an ally. I thought that there might be something in the teleport code, however it is only a thin wrapper for a core engine function. The only possible cause that comes to mind is that the shield wears off before the end of the teleport occurs. At this point the shield is nonfunctional, but if performed close enough in time it might seem like you interrupted the shield. Likewise the Pounce example may have happened with a lower shorter rank shield. (A slightly less likely possibility is that you had a bit of lag interfere with the shield timing). I'm not saying you aren't reporting accurately, but I'm not sure how it could have happenened at this point. If you can find a good way to replicate it, that would be awesome.
Re:buglist @ hedgie.
I pillaged the stickied thread in the problem report forum and the lists that provided in this thread. You listed a bunch of things there. I also consolidated a number of similar reports. Its a coincidence, unless stalker you will result in you doing more work. In that case, I'm hiding in your closet right now.
re: Match ending wind
I'll move it to the appropriate list then.
re: forum searches for bugs
If someone wants to do a complete search of all the forum pages for bugs, that would be great. If that's too much of a commitment, you can search one page of threads and report in here with which page it was. That way several people can work together to get this done. This is an annoying task to be sure, but it is a necessary one.
