Is anyone else having problems with the timers on the action bar. i can be soloing or in a party and the stoneskin timer hits 0 and the button lights up. but seems to still be a 5 or 6 second delay on using it. the same with barrage and a whole load of abilities. i've sometimes noticed lags of a second or 2 but never 5 or 6 sometimes i can be hitting them enough to get 4 or 5 lines of unable to use at this time or whatever it says.
some of my friends have been noticing similar things and even heard a couple of comments that the dalays get longer and longer over time and suggestedthe server is getting further and further out of sync.
i've also noticed sometimes if i cast firaga the casting bar goes up perfectly. hits the end of the bar and boom. other times the casting bar shoots up rocket fast and still takes 4 or 5 seconds to cast my spell.
and then possibly unrelated the last couple of runs i've done at ifrit i seem to get hit by cracks and plumes no matter how far away i run. which im told is again lag. my client looks like im in a safe place and boom i get hit. this last one is kinda putting me off ifrit at present because i find myself dying when i know full well i was well outside the blast radius or whatever and should not have even taken a scratch.
what confuses me though is somethings seem instantaneous no lag at all. i can run on my archer pop barrage shoot something get the damage and everything works almost instantaneously no sign of any lag. yet when the timer hits 0 i cant use it for 5 or 6 seconds but if i then pop barrage and shoot somethings its again instantaneous.
