"the saviour" bad targeting behavior with channeling skills

The saviour's mirage warriors won't seek a new target when using channeling skills, UNLESS the target dies or "disappears" (e.g. goddess of justice's warp). This is very noticeable when using cyclone against a mobile boss, they'll just keep cycloning on the spot where they were initially triggered (it seems to target the position rather than the enemy itself). Blade Flurry has the same issue, except the effect is worse because they never stop channeling and therefore stand still.

The expected behavior would be for the mirage warriors to properly keep track of the target and to stop channeling once there are no more valid targets.

With that being said, the item is still very strong, even for channeling skills. The targeting issues can be helped to a certain extent by repositioning the mirage warriors with convocation (note that this does NOT reset the target for cyclone, e.g. they will cyclone towards their initial target position) or by weapon swapping back and forth to unsummon them.

thank you, i was wondering what was happening, first i thought it was my lions roar confusing them.
I will try convocation, that should solve some issues on bosses, because without those clones i just have a very crappy offhand equipped.

So the channeling in general is bugged as seen even worse when using bladeflurry. Maybe GGG can fix that, would be awesome, the sword does not come cheap.
Another thing to note is that the skills socketed will be replicated by the reflection, so stuff like GMP works, but you cannot have them replicate a CoC 6 link or CWC 6 link, which i think greatly limits the potential of this sword, hence why 90% of the builds i am seeing are impale builds. Would be nice to see them broaden its range by allowing the ability to have the clones trigger stuff like CoC/CWC
Reflection doesn't work well with Spectral Throw neither.. the clones come close enough to hit only one enemy, they're not aggressive enough.
Bump this GGG please look into it, it is very annoying having to use convocation to get the minions on top of bosses
