yep that sound like the same problem fend is still having.
the current bug with fend is: if your first strike hits, all your strikes to adjacent monsters hit. if u miss that first strike....u miss all the adjacent monster strikes until your done with your first fend attack than u try all over again. if u miss your 1st strike a second time...and a 3 third time..... u get the longest whif-lock in the entire diablo 2 game. than to make matters even worse the 3 dodge skills interupt your fend.....
1. if u use the 3 dodge skills with fend u especially MUST have a high FHR
2. u MUST have 95% chance to hit. u don't wanna miss that first strike or have it interupted and subsequently miss the rest of the strikes on the adjacent huge mob surrounding u.
3. u MUST have high IAS and FHR.
