This has changed since 4.21, AOE attacks are not being registered. Paulo S took a look and determined that this is an engine bug:

Happens with any radius based attack. What I found is that any Sphere traces where Start and End locations are the same are not triggering any hits. If this was not intended, it's probably a 4.22 bug.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open Action RPG
  2. PIE
  3. Press Tab to open Inventory
  4. In the top right of the inventory, add 300 Souls
  5. In the Skills slot, purchase Combust
  6. Leave the Inventory menu and use Combust when enemies are next to the player

Results: The Area of Effect skill does not deal damage to the enemies. Hits are not being registered

Expected Results: Hits are registered and enemies take damage
