    I've been getting that a crapload lately too. Especially earlier. 20 straight seconds of lock even while not loading a skill (char just standing there like an idiot). "Succeeded" at my dan 3 test with 11,5k points thanks to that, since it didn't even let me exit. It was very damn wonderful how it stopped lagging exactly at 1s left. Too bad that didn't damn help.

    Wait, you mean where your char just freezes up and refuses to do anything like a newborn mental defect?


    That's STILL a thing?

    Evidently x_x I didn't use to get it on my old computer that could barely handle mabi. Now on this good machine I suddenly do. I have a feeling that's connected.

    That's linked to the Elves' ability to move while aiming regular ranged attack, right?

    I seem to mostly get that when I make use of that ability.

    Yup there is an easy fix
    Move really close to Nexon NA's data center where they keep the mabi servers, and get the same ISP should have no more archery lag.

    Well the bright side is it would probably be cheaper then getting what you want out of one of the gachas ;)

    "Elf Ranged Lag" is a mythical scapegoat popular among many who are unable to admit their computer is in need of service (preferably by someone who knows what they are doing). ~ What steps (aside from looking for more scapegoats) have you taken to combat this lag? :)

    Playing a human... :(

    And avoiding using Ranged Attack when playing an elf.
    Magnum Shot, Crash Shot, Support Shot, and Urgent Shot don't seem to give me this issue.

    But it's also not like Ranged Attack ALWAYS locks up, either.
    It's strange and I don't understand it. :s

    Quite sad how Mabinogi has a wikipage on lag in the first place, yet so humorously appropriate.

    happens often when you aim while walking then suddenly make a stop and fire

    to make things worse, there is RNG and lag involved in accuracy

    But this happens only to elves, though.

    -Teleporting away during Lance Charge skill.
    -Enemy suddenly gets too far/close during Lance Charge animation and your skill just turns off, which wastes your time and cooldown.
    -Lance Counter doesn't load up in time before enemy attacks.

    Hm... What else i could think off...

    Honestly i bet this Elf lag which people keep talking about is just a silly latency and Nexon's potato servers doing. Just like any other lag we get during combat.

    It's different from latency. I know because as a european player, I lag all the time. It also only usually happens on ranged attack and support shot for me. What you're describing sounds mostly like displacement lag aside from the last one.

    I can give you an easy comparison as to what this elf lag feels like. Ever tried rafting, targeted something with thunder that was outside range, then were entirely unable to cancel the skill or the targetting until you either get hit or move way out of range? Like that, except the trigger is not the enemy being outside range of ranged attack, but that you started standing still for just a moment. Considering that you have to stand still unlessyou want only a 50% chance to fire, it's recommended that you do stop..then it automatically has a chance of happening.

    Also, the amount of time you stand stupidly in place without doing anything is rather random. I've had it happen anywhere between 3 and 20 seconds.

    The elf lag I know of is that you are completely unable to do anything for a period. You can't even fire that arrow. You're stuck, unable to do anything. And can only watch your beloved one being beaten.


    You know, kind of like NTR but less interesting.
