Yeah. It's something you have to just deal with. My Ice Wizard casts STUN on NPCs all the time, and more often than not, they ignore it and cast a spell anyway. It's a bug that has been around for 1 year or more and apparently will never be fixed. sigh.

Gosh I hate that. I used Frost Giant at the 4 Fathers in Ravenscar and the stun didnt work! At Malistaire - Didnt work! ITS NOT RIGHT!

I am glad you posted this, I thought it was just me. I also suspect black mantle isn't working as it never seems to increase the fizzle rate, especially on storm and other low accuracy NPCs. KI, can you please look into this and respond? Thanks.

Even if it has a -45% accuracy spells are still eligible to work.

yes i noticed that two on my new thamaturge that i made, the spell freeze doesnt work. it just said "stunned" over enemy and gave him a stun shield, and nothing else happened. he was not stunned.
