The Flame Burst Interrupt Bug

Hey guys, so this is something I've been confused about for ages and only discovered within the past few weeks.

When using the third skill on staff in fire attunement "Flame Burst" you can abuse it by interrupting longer-channeled attacks from bosses if you stand directly behind them while they are channeling their skill.

Some facts about this that I've discovered:
-Only seems to work with Flame Burst, haven't found it to work with any other skills.
-Only works if you go BEHIND them when they are channeling a skill, doesn't work if you stand to the side or at an angle.
-This interrupt is completely unrelated to the defiance system and will work with or without defiance stacks. Even if the boss is immune to crowd control skills, it will still interrupt them but it will not stun them at all so they will IMMEDIATELY begin with another attack.

The reason I'm eager to share this isn't to encourage people to go troll groups by interrupting attacks randomly and confusing people. It's because it seems to affect just about all mobs/bosses on this game and that could include future HoT content. I hope for this to be fixed!

An example of how it could be used to grief would be Lupicus doing his rapid fire attack in phase 3, then an ele does this and suddenly he autoattacks mid channel, with no chance to react. I've died from this recently... it was weird.
