Note: Thank you to everyone who has submitted art bugs in the past! In order to help keep these issues organized, each month we will be creating a new thread for these so that it does not grow to an unmanageable size. Please do not resubmit bugs if you have already posted about them in a previous art thread as we will have already seen them and added them to our bug database. Thank you!
Please post them in this thread if you come across any sort of bug that fits in the following categories:
- Armor/clothing art issues (textures, placement, clipping…)
- Weapon art issues (textures, placement, effects, clipping…)
- Character model issues (textures, effects…)
-Take a screenshot of the issue
-Take a screenshot of your equipment on the Hero Panel (H)
- List your Race, Sex and Class
- Be as descriptive as possible
-Take a screenshot
—If the issue relates to clothing/armor/weapons—
- List the names of every piece of armor/clothing/weapon equipped (this includes the level requirement) when you encountered the issue
- If you can, list where you acquired the item (which NPC, what map location, which dungeon, etc…)
Note on clipping issues: While we understand the desire to have all clipping issues resolved, the way our items are designed sometimes causes some small issues that cannot be fixed easily. We’re looking for severe clipping (like your shield is impaling you or your daggers are completely hidden by your coat.) Things like hair clipping or minor clipping of weapons into armor are sometimes unavoidable.
Please attach the screenshots to your forum post rather than hosting it elsewhere.
If you have a video of the issue, please upload those to YouTube (unlisted) and link that along with your other bug information here.
For more Bugging Best Practices, see this thread.
We appreciate everyone’s help with these issues. Thank you!
I’d like to add to this listing of art issues. This is something I haven’t noticed before, but recently my Charr Guardian’s shields have been clipping through his arm. It looks more like the shield is a sleeve than, well, a shield. This happens regardless of shield type, it glitches no matter the shape, size, or model.
This happens when it’s on his back, too.
Could you give me a full list of the other armor you are wearing with it? Thanks!
Ever since I bought the Flame Legion Mask (Light armor Citadel of Flame headgear), I have been having a load of issues with the graphics for my head itself. -Snip!-
Hey thanks for the in-depth report, you added a lot of great information! Does this issue happen every time you die/zone, or just sometimes? Have you transmuted this helm at all? Do you notice that it happens in one area, or everywhere?
Other people who have this issue are also welcome to answer these questions. Thanks!
