Op recommended me this thread.
Although it's not the thing I was writing about, I too have experienced this particular problem.
I play a barbarian, and also use Furious Charge. - However, I'm not convinced this bug is the result of said skills.
What I have noticed, is that every time said symptoms surface ( losing health but not dying, unable to attack, move, use skills, use TP, ID or drop, pick up items - anything besides writing in the chat window ), there was always a Desecrator pool and a near-death fight.
Fun -and probably involved - fact about Desecrator; Set the game to display "damage taken" numbers. Whenever standing in a desecrator pool, you'll see a red blur of numbers over your head, it ticks so fast.
Did someone accidentally hit an extra 0 in the code and they tick too fast? Are multiple instances of the spell placed on top of each other, each damaging the character individually?
My theory is this;
What if in this near-death fight our characters actually died, due to the insane amounts of health drain and generally being whaled upon, while you were in the middle of an attack, which, somehow landed before the game decided you are dead, leeched back some health, and confused the system, leaving you stuck in the moment before you fall down and the respawn message appears.
I base this explanation on two things;
A. - My follower eventually killed the monsters and my health regenerated over time, and another player joined the game and ran down to the next boss, to see if I can be teleported out of this bug by the event.
Turns out it can get you out of the bug, but I arrived dead, lying in a heap as normal. The bug was over, and the other guy could resurrect me without any difficulty.
So: We are dead, but the game gets stuck halfway in the process.
B. - How? With desecrator ticking as fast as it does, it seems entirely possible that character health could drop to zero just before another tick restores health while / before the game is checking are you dead or not. - Especially when combined with other damage sources and high amounts of life regeneration, life steal and LoH.
Try watching for these things. See if the bug happens without Dashing Strike or Furious Charge.
