Hi, I was recently fighting Feng the Accursed in Mogu'shan Vaults normal, and I noticed some strange problems with missed spells.

As you can see from my character sheet, I'm currently at 13.4% spell hit. As the cap is 15%, I'd expect to miss 1.6% of the time. In fact, I was seeing my arcane blasts missing 6% of the time, my arcane missiles missing 7% of the time, and my nether tempests missing half of the time!

What mechanism could account for this? Sadly, I don't have a combat log to help, but I was fully buffed, ate +250 int food and drank flask of the warm sun, and the encounters lasted over 2 hours, so it's unlikely it was just a bad run of luck with the RNG.

Hi dacheng

While Feng the accursed is channeling Epicenter your chance to hit is reduced by 75%. You can see more information on it here.

There is not much you can do about this, you would need 60% hit to never miss on this fight, which is silly.

I hope this helps

As was pointed out, it's due to the Epicenter mechanic. If your raid is putting up a Nullification Barrier anywhere, go stand in it. If not, hope the tanks are able to stun Feng. If not... you just need to deal with the hit chance reduction - just try to minimise the impact on your DPS by not using any cooldowns at the time or so.
