Ability bug

has anyone else found that their abilities sometime do not work at all. I have found that in instances like dungeons my abilities will not work. It started with my ultimate ability and has morphed to all my abilities including my item shortcut bar. it is very frustrating to go into a fight and find only 2 or 3 of your abilities work. then when I hit q to take a potion it will not work even though they are in the skill tree and visible on the key. I am certainly getting ready to cancel my sub before they charge me to play this piece of undeveloped crap.

That hasn't happen to me, but high latency can cause significant delays before skills activate (mostly in PvP). If it's a targeted skill and your target moves, or you drift off-target during the lag time, it might not activate at all. I haven't noticed any lag in PvE - but I've seen a bit (half-second) in a few crowded public dungeons.

It doesn't happen very often but I have had my interface lock up completely in the middle of a fight. When UI locks up though nothing works and all I can do is run away and hope what ever is chasing me gives up. Usually logging off and back on fixes it. I suspect since some buttons are working in your case that your problem is probably more likely latency.

I am very familiar with this bug - your only defense is to run but you usually get your controls back after resurrection. Another similar bug is the one where the "E" key ceases to function - you can't loot, open doors or talk to NPCs. The next one is where the "E" key ceases to function and the harvesting nodes disappear - you know they are there if you have the crafting ability to highlight the nodes; the highlight is there but nothing else.

As for latency... Yeah, a problem for Australians, Kiwis, Asians and anyone not living within one ping leg of the server...

I've seen this one happen many times mostly in Beta. It often preceeded an Error 318 "A message rate limit was hit" where I was booted out to the login screen. Sometimes just "unknown error occurred." Caused by Internet connectivity lost.

They seem to have improved the game since then, hardly ever happens to me any more.

Yes, and it tends to happen right after my character gets caught by a mobs special attack.

I get caught in the vomit spray and then my ability to hit the mob back just stops.

I have been able to over come this by hitting the esc key but when you have two mobs pounding on you.

Well I have ended up dead more than once.
