I know a few folks here have run parses of combat logs, and performed tests of their own. Care to lend a hand in reproducing the reported Fire at Will issue? Because according to the steps I just took,
there is no bug
Here's how I was testing:
1) Give an NPC a +1000 Defense buff.
2) Fire at Will, and observe the miss-tastic light show.
3) Give myself a +1000 Accuracy buff (power-based, and equipment-based, in separate tests)
4) Fire at Will, and observe nearly every shot land as if neither of the above buffs were in place.
CONCLUSION: Fire at Will is using player and equipment Accuracy boosts when calculating its chance to hit.
So... where does that leave us?
Outside your office window with flaming torches, picks and shovels.
