    Hmmm... I just rolled onto my ranger with a greatsword, not sure if the issue is present with the 2h sword... I can't say that I noticed anything in particular. Trying this also made me notice that I just don't ever sit still... I found it really hard to just let my ranger auto-attack without moving, and then try to dodge. I'm always running around and circle straffing I guess, to the point where I just don't notice that kind of thing? O__o

    I'll be back once I acquire a one-hand sword!

    That's part of the problem: Every class trains you to not stop moving. Then you equip a one-hand sword and you CAN'T move.

    After acquiring the one-hand sword:
    I know exactly what you mean now, it definitely seems like it is a bug. Particularly because I can interrupt the greatsword skill/animation with the dodge-roll at any point just fine, but the one-hand sword skills seem to ignore dodge commands if the skill is in mid execution. It's... cute.

    Edit a few minutes later:
    Yeah, this is pretty enraging. Enough for me to not want to use the one-hand sword. I can't circle strafe at all while auto-attacking, it just doesn't happen. It appears to port me back to where I was a few milliseconds ago. I mean, even without the dodge issue, it seems to disable all movement commands when the skills start executing. Pure rage! /goes back to shortbowing things to death

    It is a bug. You cannot pull yourself away to do a dodge or anything else and feel pretty much glued to target. I just swap weapons and dodge away.

    But I do love the 1 handed ranger sword playstyle, I tend to use a torch offhand rather than dagger.

    I seriously doubt it's a bug, but it's something they might address if everyone hates it. Which I figure they do.

    Hm... Turning off auto-attack may help, but seems a bit limiting.

    I think his point is that it is difficult to master, and you can't auto do anything that is difficult to master... because that's contradictory by definition.

    It's just annoying because literally no other profession, no other weapon, has a similar mechanic.

    It can be pretty annoying... I was in a storyline mission (can't remember the name, but it's the one where you're on an elevated area with some shrines) and in a fight I used the leap back attack and flung myself backwards off the ledge, killing myself... Didn't seem like any viable way for the other person in the mission with me to get to me and rez me, so I sat there quite awhile till they finally died...
