    Do they ever plan on fixing the bug that sometimes after blade flurry my guy stops attacking? It happens in the newest update, and it's one of the reasons I don't like pressing it.

      This is the first issue which cause a lot of problems when there is a lot of mobs around = instant death (it was disscussed some time ago if I remember but is still not fixed).
      We can not attain infinity but we can get to it.

        I'm certain it was also discussed before this date, but here's a post on it from 7/2015. This bug has been around FOR YEARS.

          I know, I saw that post a year ago, that's why I said "ever".

            Yes, I am sure this will be changed soon, let's hope.

              I know it's tempting to make the Blade Flurry auto cast but I see one problem with that approach: You lose the control of your character while the Blade Flurry animation is playing, maybe you want to move out of a dangerous area instead of performing Blade Flurry.
              Also, the initial intention of Blade Flurry was to give players a button to press from time to time. Players paying attention to the proc can optimize their DPS this way.

              As it is right now it has several usability issues:
              - the proc activation is not visible enough and can be missed
              - the button is poorly placed and too small
              - there's no keyboard shortcut for it on Windows
              - the animation is taking too much time

              How about we fix these issues and see how it works?
              Thank you for your interest and response.

              I like these suggested improvements and understand your philosophy behind the current skill mechanics. The faster cast time would be welcomed by all and I think placing a keyboard shortcut alleviates all of my user experience issues on the PC platform. The PC users can just spam the key to maximize dps when needed.

              However, I am not sure if we so clear of a solution on mobile devices for a press-to-cast skill. A larger icon will not look as aesthetic as the sleek current icon, and there is no way to add a hard key shortcut for all devices. In my view it would be a shame to have to clutter up the screen with large ‘press me’ buttons for skills like Blade Flurry or Shield Block but I do think allowing the user to choose either the left or right side of the screen for proc pop-ups would be helpful (depending if you are left or right handed). All things considered, I am still leaning towards an auto cast option for mobile devices.

              Either way, I will be happy to try whatever changes to the skill after the next update, and then give further feedback.

                As I mentioned on the page before this one:

                How about double-click / double-tap** on the target to activate it, with the current button basically becoming a "notifier" that you have an open window to do so? Would solve the problem with misclicking and running away from a mob instead of Flurrying, and should be easy enough to "process" even in complicated fights.

                ** -> I mean tap-tap, in quick sequence, not like the two-finger-tap you already use for the secondary attack. A double 2-finger-tap would also activate the Flurry, of course.

                  Blade Flurry won't have those problems, it won't have Arc's downside because it is a AoE skill, neither will have to choose between AoE or single target because the skill doesn't need any support gems to work, in contrast to Incinerate.

                    I believe you're talking about a different game! Path of Exile, perhaps?
