    This is happening all the time nowadays, especially with legendary weapons. The game just loads a random skin, have to unequip and reequip to get it to work.,

    For the geographically challenged, yes, Tarnished Coast is located IN the Maguuma Jungle.

    It's a bug I guess, I tried to change skin to my sword and it says
    "You can't apply a skin to an empty slot"

    I have not seen this. Could be an issue with the computer and/or settings? The only consistent glitch I keep getting is my Warbringer disappearing on my Charr. I have to activate the glider for it to re-appear, and sometimes it just disappears right after; happens maybe 1-2 times a week, usually when the server is full of players. But my weapons on all my WvW toons always load correctly.

    Pretty sure Bolt is a bit buggy. I have it myself, and I often get the effect when riding my mount for no reason, even when it's not the weapon I'm currently using.

    I get the spvp ascended backpack disappear from my norn guardian sometimes.
    No problems with weapons here either though.

    Anet buff me :-(
    Make me good at game!

    Actually this is the ultimate result of too many nerfs...

    it happens for me if the game takes more time to load. u don't have to do anything, it just displays the real weapon after some time, even at minimal settings.

    (and it's not very new or so. i don't mind it since the standard weapons are usually less flashy - i even hide my own flashy stuff like Warbringer usually for better fps and ping)

    If u are on a different loadout when u entered wvw, it will be like that. Switch ur loadouts seems to solve it.

    ask your guildmate if he/she can see your skin. if yes and you see otherwise, some kind of corruption is in your .dat file.

    Okay this must be the reason, I used to WvW on my Rev which usually has Condi Renegade for PvE and Power Herald for WvW. Made an extra toon now for WvW and I don´t have any issues anymore.

    You dont have to make a new toon. Just switch to wvw loadout before u get through the queue, or when load into wvw switch to ur pve loadout and back to wvw loadout.
