View Full Version : Eldritch Blast sound loop
02-20-2010, 10:34 PM
With my sorcery character i have frequently experience perpetually looping sounds after activating Eldritch Blast.
It plays the entire charging sound, then repeats. Using Eldritch Blasts interrupts this loop, but it always starts up again.
It seems to stop however when changing costumes or zoning.

I get a similar situation when my Telepath character uses her abilities.

That's weird, I tried it out on PublicTest and I haven't been able to cause this to happen, myself, when spamming Eldritch Blast in the Powerhouse. A bit of extra info might help us figure this out!
1. Does this happen every time you use Eldritch Blast?
2. Do you tend to combine Eldritch Blast with other powers, i.e. leading in with Skarn's Bane?
3. Are there any other steps you usually take to cause this to happen?

happened to me too.
and that is on a brand new sorcery char only having eldritch bolts, blast and block.
when zoning it disappeared but after a while there it was again. didnt stop when i used the blast again too, i had to turn off the sound in the end... ah and when i was using edlritch blast while the loop was running i got double sounds! yay!

I've had it too.
It happens sometimes when I spam the power. If I go for a full charge it doesn't happen.
I also usually change instances to get rid of it.

My main is a sorcerer and it only happened to me once when I was in Monster Island. Not sure what I did but it stopped after a while. Hasn't happened ever since.

I was able to reproduce and submit a bug on one case where the visual FX for a power wouldn't properly end. Since sound and FX are usually linked when powers are involved, that may also be the cause of Eldritch Blast getting stuck making sound.
If this happens to you in the future, it'd be great to know if there any FX playing constantly (Glowing hands, etc.) at the same time.
For now, as I'm not able to reproduce this issue with just the sound with Eldritch Blast, I'm going to hope it's the same as the visual FX playing constantly 'til you change maps or relog. If you have any extra info, I'm all ears! :)
