Hello good minstrels, how are we all on this fine day? *waves*
On to my topic. I run in Harmony when our kin challenges instances; a 6-man filikul, 3-man GS etc.... The problem I have however is that when I try and use my coda, it is very often resisted I carried out a test, and in a group, 18/30 of my codas were resisted in harmony. Solo this was 13/30. In WS, the coda was resisted 5/30 in a group and 3/30 solo. If anyone can tell me why this is or how to prevent it, i would be deeply grateful. Thank you!
Not sure about resistance, but I find that I'm often caught by the change in range between codas. The 40m range for Fury or 25m for Vigour is reduced to 12.2m for Resonance, often made trickier by targeting through the tank. I don't recall if being out of range gives an error message, or just appears to miss, since I'm now in the habit of running into the fray before setting it off.
Minstrel isn't my main, so I'm only level 62 right now. But I do have pretty good gear (2 teal moria, teal cloak, real helmet and shoes.) So I can't really see it being my stats.... unless it's finesse maybe but I am yet to find a way to stack that until level 75

It simply doesn't go off if you are out of range or don't have a target (mob, the coda won't go off if you only have fellow players to heal but no mobs in-range/in-target to damage). I try to target the mobs directly when in harmony to prevent the "miss" (by being in range of the target and actually having a target ... if I try to target-forward through the tank or fellowship assist I end up without proper target way too often).
Are you certain your coda actually misses, or could it be a case of invalid target (too far away or losing target when target forwarding through a fellow player)?
