    Oak Barrel has a known issue of getting its user stuck (Something rather unfortunate if your step-bro is around) So let's discuss this:

    What causes the bug?
    The barrel while on the ground has a small animation of the barrel dropping on you, while this animation is playing the skill can be canceled by damage or dispel making the small skill indicator of the skill on the top right corner to disappear, once the animation is over it has no skill display making it last forever (or until you die or change map).

    The easy fix:
    Altho I know making the transformation instant like in the rope is another fix, this will also remove the animation cancel, this mechanic is what Bucc need: a bit more DPM on normal form at the cost of needing to pay attention and get the cancel right.
    So the fix is just to make the Barrel undispellable, getting he bug to happen while you get git is rather rare, and now is harder than before to do it (I think was attempted to be fixed and they did a good job) but getting stuck during dispel is rather easy since well most bosses love to dispel you.

    Why this cannot be exploited:
    1. Any damage you take breaks the Barrel, so even if you want to use the barrel as you get sed on HT, any dmg that you take works as dispel
    2. Yes you can pot and loot during the barrel but you cannot attack and as I said damage breaks the barrel (and the barrel doesn't stop magic damage), the only reason to use Barrel on a boss is to do the animation cancel
    3. I know the barrel has aggro abuse potential, but if you aggro abuse the boss won't dispel or attack anyways and you may get banned if you do so as well

    So yeah, this fix is fast and easy and will prevent Buccs to commit suicide at HT.
