Am I the only one who sees Firebird's bugs?

Wizard
I don't get it... why is no one concerned about this?
Let me list the bugs:

New bugs (07/17 patch)
- Mirror images randomly remove firebirds stacks or prevent them from building up.
- Conflagrate doesn't count towards stacks at all against some mobs (mainly whites).
- Environment fire damage removes firebird's DoT and prevents you from building it up again.

Old bugs not yet fixed:
- Extra explosions from Wand of Woh don't apply stacks.
- Hydra doesn't apply stacks (at least this one is already listed in the known issues topic http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/13242714346)
- Only 1 person in the party can have Firebird's DoT applied to a mob.

If no one's drawing attention to these issues, they will go unfixed in the 2.1 release, and we can say goodbye to the set.

I'll update this list with further bugs I find out, I'm sure there are many more.
Don't post them here, post them in the PTR Bug report forum.

I know a few others have done so already (in depth or not), but post in the bug forum for more visibility. Those in Blizzard who hunt down bugs and whatnot will not be frequenting class forums in search of bugs.

I know... I posted them everywhere... I'm almost posting via FedEx to their adress lol
Heh. The Mirror Image thing should definitely be addressed, though, along with the multiplayer stacking.

A) because it is Play Test Region (we are PLAY TESTING)

B) because the firebird set bonus is a brand new - untested - game mechanic, therefore several bugs are EXPECTED

C) because blizzard has already acknowledged some of the bugs (ie hydra not effecting firebirds), and they already fixed one of the major ones (infinite loop with mm/conflag)

Calm down man. Everything is going to be ok. Breathe.

How are we supposed to test a set this broken?
Keep finding them bugs. Thats your ROLE as a PTR player.

You have identified that mirrorimages doesnt work, ok now test the new fire disintegrate. test arcane orb scorch, test wave of force, test fire blades, test meteor, test different damage skills (damage / ias bubble), test different legendary affixes (razorstrop, storm crow, tals meteor).

then there is all of the new channeling skill changes to test.

tons of stuff to test.

calm.

down.

Nothing you typed hasn't already been posted. But by all means post this stuff in PTR forum.

Yep, that's the entire point - to test.

If you're like me, you're nervous when some things are explicitly acknowledged and others aren't; it makes you worry that they haven't been seen. Don't worry, just keep testing and posting, you're doing all you can.
Found a new one: Environment fire damage removes firebird's DoT and prevents you from building it up again.
