Bodyswap smooth camera animation is not working when triggered

Well, just that, the Bodyswap smooth camera animation is not working when triggered. It only works when cast manually.

Hey there,

Unfortunately, this is working as intended. Currently, we don't have the ability to tweak the camera for skills that have been triggered. This means the popular combination of Poet's Pen and Bodyswap won't have the new camera behaviour.
Sorry :(

Oh, camera smoothing! I thought this was fixing the horrible desync/flickering that regularly happens when using triggered bodyswap in poets pen. Bummer. Any chance that is getting looked into? It happens even with lockstep enabled; I've stopped casting to loot and warped to where the server thinks I am as soon as I click the item, running to it from the new location. It makes playing the build with a group borderline impossible.

I tried lots of possible combinations for moving and attacking at the same time using Poet's Pen. I even tried Lightning Warp, but I discarded it after finding it has a hidden internal cooldown of more or less 450ms that isn't even reflected in the UI.
The best combination I found is Volley Support to prevent getting stuck in walls, Dying Sun for the extra projectiles and 8aps to teleport every 250ms. If you use Volatile Dead, make sure Bodyswap and VD trigger at the same time in that specific order to prevent VD from consuming any corpses before Bodyswap

That's an easy fix.

Make sure your bodyswap poets pen is the left one, make sure bodyswap is your first gem.

make sure your APS is not too high. Check here:

And yes playing in groups requires ever lower levels of APS because of lag. Try tapping the button instead of holding. Or take out bodyswap alltogether in groups (better dps anyway)

Why would APS or cast order cause desync? If I'm in lockstop none of that should matter. I'm not complaining about less-than-efficient casting, but clearly being in a different location in my game than the server thinks I am. That _shouldn't_ be possible. Not saying your suggested wouldn't reduce the impact, because I already do those things to help; I'd just prefer the root cause was corrected.

I find poet's pen much more reliable when playing in predictive mode, not because lockstep desyncs (it really doesn't), but because when teleporting at extreme speeds the corpses don't always go to the exact place you targeted. I'm not sure why this happens, probably it's because some little delay between the game and the server.

This causes the corpses to appear in weird spots and you teleport there. It totally looks like desync. For some reason, this works much better in predictive mode, probably because the server trusts a bit more what comes from the game client.

Appart from that, don't forget to put Bodyswap in your main hand, or VD will consume the corpses nearest to your mouse pointer, which are the best ones.
