First time in a few weeks, I had to recast it on our twins kill.
my tweet to gc mysteriously disappeared..
5 freaking times today.
Would be nice if there was an update or something beyond "Yeah we know".
One thing i find many people mention when they report it happen a lot, is the healing from evo glyph, I havent personally used that glyph since the nerf to the %heal and i have had under 0.3%(estimate..) fails to invocation. Any of those experiencing this a lot tried swapping out that glyph? still happens ? same ratio of fails ? etc.
i know its properly not that simple, but worth a try.
Invocation failed quite often for me last week, but it didn't seem to fail at all over 9 bosses after the Tuesday reset. Hope that's a good sign and not a fluke.
Last night was probably the worst its been for me. Nearly every other time I had to cast Evo, I had to cast it a second time for it. For bosses and for trash in ToT or just out anywhere.

Just yesterday, I had problems with Invocation when I changed from the SPA trinket to Breath of the Hydra. Switch back and the problems were gone. Could the issue be related to specific haste breakpoints of some kind? The main difference was the static haste on the trinket.
Level 90 Mage talents are bloody awful regardless. If I had my way, i'd give Mages an MoP-Warlock-style revamp from the ground up.
“In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.” - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956
If it's a haste breakpoint that causes it, then all the haste on your gear matters - it could happen when you equip a trinket with haste or one without..or it could happen when you change spec and haven't cast Frost Armor, but not after. A trinket proc could have the effect of making it happen or preventing it.
Just a theory, but I think the signs fit the symptoms? Since no one can reproduce it 100%, I think the issue requires a latency fluctuation too (or a server hickup of some sort).
I've found that it tends to happen the most in pre-pull scenarios. I've probably had it bug out about 10% of the time on pre-pulls, while only about 5% during combat.
I've got no idea what could cause this, all I know is that it's driving me nuts. One moment seems fine, next fight I find myself chain casting it 4-5 times. I've been trying to ask @Ghostcrawler nicely on Twitter what's going on with the bug, but now I'm starting to lose my patience
Apparently we don't have the technology to fix this super complicated issue yet. Failed for me last night 4 times in a row, a new record.
