    Fyrce might be right about the skills interfering. If you are experiencing this bug, please list all four of your mapped skills.

    Unholy Force (also doesn't work all the time now)
    Vermin Swarm
    Leap
    Fatal Burst

    EDIT.... Also sometimes the skills go off on their own (vs & leap) and sometimes when charging, they go off on their own.

    Nope, failed many times at the boss. Even when he's the only mob left. Moving away, then back seems to work. Unless I'm dead or lagged a lot.

    Sometimes, if you think you're dead, but you're moving and tapping that skull, you amazingly JUST make it.

    Hell, I've fed on blank space before (formerly a mob there, but on my screen it just died) <--- I'm pretty sure this last part was lag or multi-action thing, where I get the graphic but I just beat the game in the 'death' determination. Lucky me.

    I think you mean the charge disappears, but nothing happens. Sometimes this is due to other things interfering with the charging -- for example Knockdown. I think other 'spells' from mobs can discharge skills. I'm not all sure which ones yet, but lots of them, if they hit you first, your skill will discharge and you've got to feed, run away and/or recharge it or just tap it and spam your Powers.

    Which makes me curious whether Feed can be discharged. It shouldn't be, but maybe it CAN be...?

    No, I mean when I hold down to charge it'll charge for a couple seconds (blink a couple times) then goes off (i.e. the attack is initiated w/effects showing then goes on cool down) where as I charge the others and they stay charged until I release/move my finger from the skill. This happens both during the middle of a mob in PvE & PvE --and-- when Im not even near a mob or other players and charge while moving towards them. But it does happen while standing still too.

    Just had this happen like three times in 5 minutes. Standing next to an enemy, pressing feed, mouth roars like I'm about to feed, character arches back to jump, then nothing happens and I continue getting hit with low health.

    I'm using the lunge, Leap, Vermin, and Hell Blades.

    The skull might not open even when it looks full for a few different reasons. Your enemy might be in the process of spawning in or being knocked down, or you might need one more kill for full feeding power.

    If you are experiencing something outside of the listed conditions, please post the following:
    1. What mission are you on?
    2. Are you playing multi-player or solo?
    3. Is the skull failing to open when full, or is your character failing to feed while the skull is already open?
    4. Are you fighting a boss?
    1. Any.
    2. Either.
    3. Skull open, won't feed.
    4. Mostly not, uncertain if it was ever a boss.

    Quote Originally Posted by Fyrce View Post

    Happens even if you have lots of blood.
    Happens even if your ping is good, though sometimes, the issue really is lag.
    Happens in the middle of a big room, surrounded by live zombies/ghouls. It is NOT line of sight.

    My feeling is that this is related to targeting, such as when a Power, such as Shadow Dance, fails or hits the wall.

    If the target failure is due to ping, as in the zombie/ghoul really isn't there anymore, then you're out of luck.

    If it's just that the target is plain wrong, the easiest thing to do is to force the game to re-target. That's why the solution is to move around -- it's not that you are getting a certain distance, even though it often seems that way. It is that as you move, the game is finally seeing the blood sacks around you and picking one to feed on. We can only hope that the next one that's picked can be fed upon successfully.

    So you've got to move around, probably away from the ghouls (save yourself!), then back to them (close in to feed) and hit that skull quickly when you see the open mouth and hope it's ok this time.

    If you are failing a lot, try to move away, then towards a zombie no one is killing or that is beyond the current group. It's possible that the current group is actually dead (killed by your partners) and has not shown up for you yet.

    This latter is not always the case (I think there's other issues with targeting, like the object's moved and the game is confused), but moving around is the best chance you have of finally getting a "live" zombie.

    While you are trying to find a good zombie, of course, you cannot move so far away that you cannot get back to a blood sack in time (skull is timed), or do actions that discharge the skull (use skills, maybe also just hacking).
    I've tried to work around it - press feed multiple times while running around based on the idea that targeting might be the issue. Still failed to death at times - both with the "start to launch then don't feed" and without.

    I'm not generally *using* any skills when this happens but:
    *Unholy blessing, vermin swarm, fatal burst, shadow dance on my main (other chars generally follow a similar pattern but the ones who are not 20 yet may have hellblades, curse or unholy force instead of vermin swarm.)

    This is what happens to me, too.

    Toon 1: Fatal burst, hellblade, leap, unholy force

    Toon 2: fatal burst, hellblade, vermin swarm, unholy force

    All maps, mobs and bosses, solo and multi.

    I've verified this happens to me when I attempt to feed off "inactive" mobs. What's an "inactive" mob? A mob that is basically in "placeholder" mode and hasn't yet engaged in activity. A good example would be any map that has werewolves. Ever come around a corner and see a pack of werewolves feeding on a body? Until they aggro, they're basically inactive; not only can you not feed on them , but your powers and attacks don't affect them either. I've run in quick and used leap in the middle of them, but nothing happens.

    While the werewolves are a good example, I've verified this happens with other mobs that are just standing around, too. Until they aggro, I can't feed off them. As soon as they do, I can...

    This happens to me as well sometimes.

    I've also had the following issues:
    1) being killed WHILE feeding!
    2) my skull is constantly fading as soon as any blood fills it up! Usually it only fades after it's been full for a while and you haven't fed.
