Undocumented change: Cosmetic effects no longer apply to mounts

Not sure how recently this disappeared - most likely with yesterday's big patch. But tonight I noticed that I am no longer able to get my legendary auras on my mounts anymore.

It used to be 100% reproducible: Draw weapons, then mount. Enjoy legendary auras/enrichments etc while mounted. Didn't work with every legendary though - I seem to recall being disappointed that I got no awesome green glow with Xiuquatl.

Frostfang, Claw of the Khan-Ur, and Howler no longer work while mounted.

People with other legendaries, have you noticed other legendaries affected?

To be honest, it was probably a bug to begin with, but I did consider posting this thread in the bugs section. Do you all think this is an intentional change?

    I did notice that the book on Ipos no longer stays open when mounted.

    That was from a previous patch

    All those things are from a bug so unless they are accidentally fixing bugs it was intentional.

    Those sort bugs looks like improper cleanup of things in the code. Improper cleanups often results in things like memory leaks.

    It would be fine to leave them if the bug didn't cause any other problems but we have no way to know that since some problems could have been on the server side.

    Yeah, not using my Ipos as much now, it's less immersive that I can't ever just sit and read it lol. It used to work in chairs too

    I'd rather keep going.. wherever the wind takes us

    I'll check with Bolt as soon as I get a chance.
