My Daredevil is constantly leaning or tilting unnaturally with the terrain. - [Merged]

After using staff skills it seems, my character is constantly no longer following the laws of gravity. They stand on the terrain as if they always have to be perpendicular to the ground, even on hills. If I weapon swap it fixes itself, but it's an annoying bug that I see on a consistent basis.


  • This bug usually corrects itself after some time.

    You could try a -repair of the client whilst waiting.

    Good luck.

    Nah, been happening way too much after yesterday's patch.
    I'd assume Daredevils (thieves in general?) are somehow special in this regard, since the rest of my characters don't suffer such severe cases of the legendary perpetualus perpendiculatus.
    'Till (if?) it gets fixed, changing Your character's form via a tonic, for example, seems to reset the model, getting rid of the bug, in case the weapon swapping doesn't work.
    Urine-poor luck, isn't it?

  • It's not just happening on my daredevil now. It happens on my elementalist too. Seems like when I get knocked down, or use fire breath, or who knows what, it starts to happen. It's WAY too often, way to consistent. Like after almost every fight.

  • yea its been happening to my deadeye as well and yea it does correct itself but this still needs a fix

    Turns out the issue has nothing to do with movement skills as I first suspected. At least not one's own skills.

    The problem appears when an enemy lands a movement-forcing CC on a character (of any profession; props for playing the Thief Master Class, though!).

    Before last patch, it occurred only if a lot of movement (should have) happened at the same time, and the client apparently fried in indecision.
    After the patch, every single form of these cardio reminders - from nightly Lego bricks to wheneverly encounters with legs of various counts and attractiveness - causes the glitch to surface.

  • This is happening to me, too, on several toons. It happens when I am in combat. I think Vyr is right, when an enemy lands a CC on me. My toon will orient to be perpendicular to the ground for as long as I have my weapon drawn. If I stow the weapon, the toon re-orients to a vertical position.

    Happens sometimes to me, cannot tell the circumstances. Even when on a mount. Could happen everywhere (WvW, PvE...). But I just shrug and go on.

    Praise Joko! And make necros great again!

    This has been an increasingly occuring bug since this January. It's highly annoying in WvW where you have lots of stairs, hills, and other slopes.

    It needs to get fixed.

  • Happens with my warrior occasionally. The more tilted the surface the more funny it looks ngl lol. It is annoying tho.

    Happening here, too - I noticed it with my daredevil, but I haven't yet been able to confirm if it happens with other classes, too. In my case, it happens out of combat, just randomly standing on tilted surfaces. No enemy was around, nothing landed a CC on daredevil just decided that cheerfully spitting in gravity's face was a fun new game.

    It has nothing to do with the profession, it happens to every character.

    Daredevils also have a lot of full-body animated moves, which don't seem to be affected, meaning that You could Bound and Vault around for two hours straight and only notice the perpetualus perpendiculatus upon taking Your hands off the keyboard.
    Galmac mentioned mounts, though, but mounts were always this way, no?

    Another detail I've noticed is that idle animations which use the entire body are perpendicular to the surface, but if the animation involves only the head (or potentially torso), the head attempts to stay as "normal" as the rest of the skeleton allows.

    Default (use the blue line on the wall behind Rïta for reference):

    :sweat_smile:This is the best!

    Oh boy, they really need to fix whatever is causing this lately. It used to be an occasional bug, but now it's happening more often than not.

  • Hi there,

    I created a human thief a few days ago and ever since, I'm experiencing a problem within story instances. Sometimes after a fight, mostly when I used the sitting position of the deadeye, the character doesn't level out with the ground anymore, but instead he's adapting to the incline. I can sometimes fix it with putting away the rifle and jumping a few times, but as you might imagine, this can get pretty annoying :-) It happened through random instances, so it seems to be a general problem. Please find 2 screenshots attached :-)

    I'm curious if this is a known problem and if there's an easy fix.

    Best regards,


  • Edit: I never realized the problem with my Norn ranger, so maybe it's a Deadeye thing?

  • Batel.9206Batel.9206 Member ✭✭✭✭

    It's not just a Deadeye - or thief - thing. Here's another thread on it:

    It happens on occasion regardless of character, race, or profession, and it's been happening since January, I think. No clue why, since it seems to happen at random, but you're not alone. :)

    Is it everything you dreamed it would be?

    Your characters are just challenging the Tyrian gravity, that's all.
    This has yet to happen to me though.

    I've had it happen once as well

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

  • Thanks for all the replies :-) Did some research before, but couldn't find any other threads. I guess I'll try to repair the client and if that doesn't work, I'll just hope for a fix :-)

  • Ashantara.8731Ashantara.8731 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I'm having it happen constantly. A client repair changes nothing, this is a game issue.

    Just did the Sanctum Sprint in weird angles all the time (in one spot it was close to 90° like in one of the above screenshots).

    This needs to get fixed ASAP.

  • Still happening to me. Did anybody find a solution? Or are we waiting for a bug fix from AN?

  • Still waiting :-)

  • Jugglemonkey.8741Jugglemonkey.8741 Member ✭✭✭✭

    This bug has been around for years (I remember it happening in HoT), but it does seem to happen more often than it did. It does seem to happen more often on daredevil than deadeye tho.

    It's been hitting me constantly today on both warrior and guardian. The warrior was in the Khan Ur jumping puzzle and, as far as I know, had not been in combat. It made the puzzle very difficult, especially the part with the tree as my warrior was tipping back and forth like a drunken weeble.

  • linamaria.1830linamaria.1830 Member ✭✭✭

    It is happening more often nowadays, with all professions. Very annoying.
