Unable to hit anything with spells

Post by TopherZax » January 1st, 2019, 8:56 pm

I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but unable to figure out what I'm missing. I'm looking at the target, waiting for the triangle and circle to become stable and then releasing the fireball. It hits about 1 out of 20 times. Please, what am I missing?
This is driving me crazy and making me not wanting to play this game.

Are you throwing the fireballs, or just releasing the button?

Maybe a little fix it in the remasters and add new commands?

That sounds like a Bard's Tale suggestion. The OP seems to be about Mage's Tale.

I have had issues as well, but I've learned that the angle I throw the spell matters, even if the target is highlighted. I can be blocked by objects in between me and the target, I can send the spell to either side or above and below. So you really need to send your hand in the direction of the target to hit them consistently. I would welcome any better advice, though. I also seem to have more luck hitting with fireballs than with ice lance or air blast.

The problem was that I couldn't attack anything with a targeted spell or ability. It just says invalid target.
