Relentless Pursuit may not hit target.

I was using Relentless Pursuit (new single blade dps power) at Teleiosaurus today. It would only deal damage if I was directly behind or directly in front of Teleiosaurus. The power would activate and could be maintained but would deal no damage when attacking from the side. All other melee DPS around me were able to deal damage just fine. Not sure if the innate lunge on the power causes some funky hitbox issue.

    You're out of range. The power will continue to maintain even if out of range once activated, but deal no damage until you get back to 10ft.​​

    Many cylinders are able to activate while out of range and will do no damage (gauntlet chainsaw is notorious for that), this is probably the same bug.

    Just did a few follow up test. It does not damage the Unknowable One in the rampage and it does not damage Qwyjibo cosmic. It does damage Kiga but seemed unreliable. It worked just fine on kiga's dogs. I was as close as I could possibly be on each of these fights. Relentless Pursuit was my only power to have this issue.

    I'll have to retcon it out it isn't usable for cosmics as is.

    People worried about this already, the problem is their hit box on such big targets being not on their feet and legs basically.

    Sounds like the devs need to hop in and get rid of cylinder based powers?

    The same result has been replicated every time I’ve taken this power to cosmics. Any chance this will get a fix?

    It's not a serious problem for ranged cylinders, but eliminating melee cylinders would probably be a good plan. However, it's not the problem with relentless pursuit. I think the problem with relentless pursuit is that lunge sometimes doesn't take you far enough forward.

    This power is single target, it isn’t a cylinder.
