    1.1 Charge -> Zeal switch bug

    Steps I've taken to reproduce this bug:

    1) Use concentration aura
    2) Charge at a monster (Using left hand skill selection button)
    3) Quickly switch to Zeal using a hotkey in the left hand skill selection button.
    4) Attack monster with Zeal (or at least, attempt to.)

    My character will become frozen in place, ranging from a few seconds to indefinitely. Sometimes he won't become frozen at all. I'm unable to do anything, except drink potions and change auras. He's stuck in a position that looks like he's in the middle of a charge.

    A somewhat risky thing to do, but to unstick yourself quickly just pick up an item off your body (i usually just click my dracul's gloves once) and i come unstick, but you always run the risk of dying etc.. so it's your call ^_^ but ive found that always to work

    Just hit w for your weapon switch, that also will unfreeze you. Then switch back and keep going.

    I have found switching attacks or casting something works too.

    This happens to me all the time too, basically because I don't wait for the charge to actually hit before swtching to zeal. So I get frozen quite often.

    My solution is to get better at the timing for switching (wait til you hear the *slap* and don't keep your finger pressed at charge unless you intend to go on a series of knockbacks). When I get it wrong, I have a good rare shield and bstar on my switch so that I can actually finish the first zeal before coming back to weapon/shield set #1.

    Quite scary to get frozen in HCL hell. :scared:
