All your skills locked up

So some of you might have witnessed this so far or not. But at times when you are fighting your skills might lockup without being able to do anything.


How to fix: In order to resolve this I have been able to correct it by hitting ESC twice quickly allowing me to reactivate my skills and finish the fight.

After that I log out and back in and I don't have any issues the rest of the time.

Don't know if it's the same, but I have been stuck on my two-hander and not being able to go back to s/b, that I fixed by un slotting the weapons and put them back in the wrong slots first, then back in the right one afterwards.

This occurs to me primarily in instances - but mine seems more lag related.  They will often activate after a few agonized seconds of inertia.  LOL

My oddest problem was when the "system" on at least 2 occasions, unequipped a set of my weps.  Ppppffffttt!  That hasn't happened for a while, so I am hoping the Daedric demons will leave me alone.

I have had both problems. Sometimes my skills wont activate when I ask them to. This started for me about a week ago and feels like i have an amount of permanent lag now.

The weapon swapout issue ALWAYS happens to me in AvA and I am certain that it is lag related. If I change weapons and wait a short while it will always swap out. There seems to be a lag between the character graphics showing the new weapon and the swap actually happening though. My skill sets seem to swap pretty quickly (I see the graphics change for my skills) but then there is a second or so lag to get the character graphics to indicate i have a new weapon set.

My rig and graphics card can more than handle the action, so it isn't from my end.

Thanks for the tip to double tap escape. I'd read your note earlier in the day and must have filed it away in the depths of my consciousness. When it happened, after the initial panic, I dredged up your suggestion, executed and managed to stay alive.

I get this problem also where critters are around. For whatever reason now Zenimax doesn't want me to kill deers, chickens, frogs, and other level 1 critters with my powers (ANY power I use it locks my skills). I cannot fight until I hit i (inventory key) twice. Very annoying and frustrating!

This is a real problem when I'm fighting a mob and hit a deer by mistake with silver bolts that shoots many enemies, I get locked and the trolls in Eastmarch are munching me alive >:C
