  • Item : Enchanted Dragon Crown (Light)
    Race : Human
    Gender : Female
    Class : Mesmer

    Enchanted Dragon Crown (Light) is not working as intended on light armor. I'm not able to change the color of the aura/glow that surrounds the horns as seen in the screenshots I provided, even tho I clearly dyed them in a different color. They do work perfectly fine on medium/heavy armor tho.

    Hey @Rubi Bayer.8493 !
    Do you know if anyone is still keeping an eye on this thread? Could you maybe gently nudge someone who might be able to forward these? :3
    It's been well over a month now but we've gotten no word or fix yet. :/ Love the set and can't wait to wear it, boots and all! <3

  • Item: Bolt
    Race: Norn
    Gender: Female
    Profession: Any

    Size of small fence, looks like 60 pounds of brass:
    Clipping horribly with ground:
    Human female Bolt is better proportioned:

    Description: Can you folks at ArenaNet please make Bolt smaller on Norn females? Currently it's the size of a small fence and looks utterly ridiculous. It's so large it clips with the ground. Please, please, please size this thing down 5-10% or more. It's ridiculous to have such a valuable sword have such awful clipping problems. Bolt is more reasonably sized on human females, for example.

    I know there will probably be a lot of resistance to this change, because for some reason people think that hilariously over-sized one-handed swords in fantasy games are really, really cool. Please ignore those edgelords. I also know that you guys are unlikely to fix clipping issues unless they apply to the human female meta (e.g. the state of Charr and Asura), but please? Just this once? :cold_sweat:

    Armor: Aetherblade Heavy Armor Skin
    Race: Sylvari
    Gender: Female
    Profession: Ranger/Mesmer

    Decided to preview the Aetherblade heavy armor skin on my ranger - the boots' back side appears to be torn, however on my human female, for example, everything looks just fine [see screenshots below]. The skin appears without issues on female Asura and female Norn. Unfortunately I don't own the armor skin yet and I can't take a screenshot of the Hero Panel.

    Here's a link with all the screenshots as follows:
    1 - Female Sylvari - Ranger

    Weapon: Eureka
    Race: All races
    Gender: All genders
    Profession: All professions

    Problem: Legendary Eureka's weapon trail. While having quickness the weapon trail effect of Eureka vanishes almost completely and is substituted by the standard weapon trail effect. The effect is completely gone at the beginning and is shown a bit at the end of the animation, thus making it almost vanish on smaller characters and still a bit visible for bigger characters. Problem doesn't seem to be influenced by equipped armor/weapons, using the legendary itself or another weapon transmuted as eureka or race. It occurs with every char and every equip combination I tested.

    Equipment used in the video:

    Yassith's Visor transmuted as Adventurer's Spectacles LV 80
    Yassith's Pauldrons transmuted as Warden Shoulderguards LV 80
    Yassith's Breasplate transmuted as Elonian Breastplate LV 80

    Hello not sure if this thread is still monitored but
    Item : Mage Knight Costume
    Race : Asura
    Gender : Female
    Class : Mesmer

    Basically the little dress like area on the costume just keeps disappearing.. Vanishes randomly i'm not sure if mounts cause it but i have to continually take it off and re apply the costume to bring it back.. I'm not sure if it effects other races genders classes etc.

    Kinda paid 700 gems on this?

    This clash is between a much older item; Ghastly Grinning Shield and one of the newest ones; Etherbound Pauldrons.

    I was excited to finally own the shield since it's a retired item basically, you all know the story by now to that. I also tried out the Pauldrons and loved the effect that it gave my character, so I figured I could have them both. ( Technically I can, since this is just a shield and not a back piece I don't need out at all times, but I love it so much, why wouldn't I?? ) Anyway, getting to the point, at certain angles but far too often for me to be able to ignore it, this happens.

    You may notice i'm using an overlay to make my graphics look a little darker and crisper, but that has nothing to do with this flicking effect. I've already tested it on and off.

    It's mostly distracting when my character is idle, during movement ( like running forward somewhere ) it's not as noticeable and it barely happens. This isn't something major but it would be nice if it could be looked into, considering they aren't right on top of each other, I didn't think it would be like this.

    Any feedback or suggestions would be appreciated.

    edit: This also doesn't happen when i'm facing my character, looking at them from the front. This only happens as it does in the gif provided.

  • Item : Mistforged Glorious Hero's Breastplate
    Race : Norn
    Gender : Female
    Profession: Revenant
    Brief description: Texture error

    There is a discoloration of the neck while wearing this chest piece. Its less pronounced depending on the lighting of the area you're in. But its most noticeable in an area with bright light, shown here in the Fractal of the Mists lobby. In the hero panel as well as armor preview panel there is no error, and your character's neck looks normal. However when rendered in the real world the player's neck becomes discolored. This is a surprising oversight considering this is supposed to be the fancy "legendary-tier" armor specially designed for and specifically earned from PvP.

  • Item: Exclusive hair (colour issues)
    Race: Charr
    Gender: Female
    Profession: Necromancer
    Problem: The lighting in game affects my character's hairstyle very drastically and very strangely, as if it were clothing and not actually part of the character model. I wanted the hair to match the fur patterns like in the equipment preview (sandy blonde colour) but this very rarely happens and the colour almost always looks vastly different to what I picked, ranging from grey to green. I used to have another hairstyle from initial character creation which responded to lighting very well and consistently with the rest of my character, always looking sandy blonde. Please fix, I waited a long time to save up to change my hair and it's not even close to what I expected it to look like.

  • Item: The Juggernaut (Legendary Weapon)
    Problem: The Juggernaut's footfalls are bugged. The animations are very messy and also lack fading effect.

  • Item: Wide Rim Glasses/Inventors Sunglasses/Reading Glasses

    Costume Mage Knight Costume

    The skirt like part of the costume seems to vanish randomly on Asuras, the cause is unknown and seems to be very random. It seems to effect all Classes, Professions and genders of asura.

    My race was Female Asura Mesmer, but it effects other classes as well. Maybe an issue with mounts or map travel but i cannot be sure as its random. I aquired this for 700gems and it doesn't work as intended.

    Hi yes, I'm trying to cosplay as a sylvari bloodstone enthusiast and I thought these shoulders and gloves would be perfect!

    Problem: Bottom 2 dyes (for the flame and frost) are not dyable. Trying to change them won't show in preview nor on character after applying it, to me or to others.
    This seems to be particular to my account and that of a few others as mentioned here [].

    I have tried changing graphics, character, races, gender, class, even installed on different pc, same issue.

  • Item: Flying Boar glider and Stralight Wings glider skins
    Race: Norn
    Gender: Female
    Class: Mesmer (Chronomancer)

    So it started when i cant changed the colors of my Flying Boar glider.
    And i figured out, the bug first came, when i get a chest for my 14 day log in i think, it was an exotic item chest or something like that, and i get a Starlight Wings glider skin with the backpack.
    If i use the default color on the Starlight Wings glider skin, all my other gliders skin will use the colors of the Stralight Wings glider, AND if i change the Starlight Wings colors, the other gliders change colors too.
    But if i try change any color, on any other glider skin, its not working at all.

    Item: Mistforged Triumphant Hero's Leggings (T3 light WvW leg skin, but almost certainly affects T1 and T2 versions).
    Race: Human
    Gender: Male

    The issue is that the leg skin seems to behave the same when running with weapon stowed as it does with weapon drawn, which creates an awkward affect where the legs fan out into what looks like a ballerina's Tutu. The best way to illustrate the problem is to post a picture of a human male running vs. a Sylvari male running. It behaves as it should on sylvari, but has the weird physics defying issue on human. It may seem like a nitpick, but its preventing me from using what is otherwise my favorite armor set on my main.

    Item/Weapon: Quip, Bifrost, possibly some other Legendaries i'm not aware of
    Race: All
    Gender: All
    Class: All (that can use them)
    For these legendary weapons, they have very lovely footfalls but the problem with these footfalls, is that they don't appear/render on almost all surfaces, and only render at VERY specific (but always changing) camera angles, this bug is Client-Side, as all my friends can see the footfalls completely fine, but they do not render for me for a majority of the time, I've tried walking on a variety of surfaces, from street-ways, to hillsides, to grassy areas and so on, as for reproduction it just kind of happens all the time (atleast for me, and it's not any graphics settings as i've tried tweaking all of them to no avail.)
    (EDIT: seems also the confetti/flowers/smokey stuff that spews out of the guns when firing also dissapear on the client depending on camera angle)
    Here's a video to demonstrate the problem:

    It looks okay at first, but after i move my camera around they start dissapearing/not rendering or spawning in at all, and they don't spawn under the floor either,
    (i've tried on very thin platforms/areas to see if that was the case, but no such luck) and again, this is ENTIRELY a Client-Side issue, it shows up fine for everyone else. :/

    Hopefully it can get fixed, thank you!

    Item/Weapon: Raven Ceremonial Sandals
    Race: Asura and Charr
    Gender: Female
    Class: All heavy and medium classes (Warrior, Revenant, Guardian, Engineer, Thief, Ranger)

    When equipped the textures are completely messed up, UV's seem to be misaligned to the actual model. Colors cannot be applied, or start randomly changing every time the model of the sandals is loaded in.

    EDIT: Upon closer inspection it seems that upon using a transmutation charge it actually uses the texture of the previous boots equipped, not using the actual sandal texture.

    Abyss Stalker Outfit has color bug where mist effect it emmits changes color randomly after swapping to other map.
    Sometimes it has normal color, but sometimes it changes randomly, from pink, purple, red, yellow, green, blue...

    This happens on my human male warrior character. I just tested it on my human female mesmer and it works correctly. Mist color changes properly with dye without any issues, even swapped few maps and didn't notice any wrong mist color with full Shadow Abyss dye.

    The misty effect should be same color as the bottom right dye channel, but sometimes it does not change at all (on human male warrior) its color after changing that dye channel in hero dye panel. It changes color properly on human female mesmer.

    There is similar issue with Blooming Mist Shard Tassets, crystals on it change dye tint randomly, same as the outfit.

  • Can confirm the Abyss Stalker Outfit glow bug on a Human Male Elementalist. The mist color changes randomly, not just on map swap, but even if you hover with a different color without actually confirming the change.

  • PsiQss.6927PsiQss.6927 Member ✭✭

    I can confirm the Abyss Stalker Outfit glitch. Also, the change is visible for other people, just checked it yesterday with my friends and they both seen different colors. I usually have purple smoke, but me and one friend would see it as red, while second friend would see it grey. Happened after map swap.

    The problem is caused by the broken skeleton of the Human females, as their knees are twisted (knee is facing inward, while the foot is facing outward). The legs of the Norn females are not twisted. Therefore, it’s easy to compare the armour’s/boot’s behaviour, since the stance is the same one both Norn and Human females. Until they fix the Human female’s skeleton, this bug will always occur.

    i am very sure, if a cm read this, he can check out Yubéi Yagyú. also on other forums people complained about the outfit cannot be died correctly. so its probably still the issue, i dont know if they posted it here. and i dont think infusions would matter at all, if other outfits can be dyed correctly, why only this one not? it wouldnt make any sense. so if it would be a problem caused by graphics, it would be all outfits together and not only one.

    here on redit i found something, probably its still the same bug, people should prefer writing here in the gw2 forum, so it can be fixed. they chose the wrong forum for that.

    in the preview, it show you exactly how you wanna have the outfit, but if you apply it, you get greenish colors. the only color that work somehow is blue and green, all other are not working.
