Creating this thread as it will undoubtably pop up soon.
Finley’s chain used to stop when one of his strikes missed. In V37 however, his chain will carry on past the miss until it gets to one of the other “stop” triggers (target has no buffs or no more targets left).
Note that “missed” enemeis will not get the defence debuff.
Essentially, in fixing the Alfrike cube missing bug the developers introduced a new bug as they changed the “chain” mechanic.
The devs are aware of the issue and actually know how to fix/ patch this. However they are delaying the roll-out of the fix in order to do additional testing to ensure no additional bugs are introduced.
Hopefully the resolution will be in a patch (say V37.1); but if not V38 is the latest.
