Gallant Lightbearer Raptor Skin rendering issue since patch 13.8. [fixed]

After the patch the fur patches inside the ears and on the tail of the Gallant Lightbearer behave oddly when using medium or high shaders. The ear part defaults to some glowy cyan color and the tail tuft to an ugly green (if the body is dyed white or using default color). The blue/cyan on the ear hair tuft is there regardless of the ear color. If they are dyed orange, the tuft turns into kind of a neon green.

    Agreed, it looks terrible, already put in a ticket.

    Left was before, right is after. looks like it went the bathroom on its tail.

  • I thought I was going crazy. I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed this. Hopefully they fix it soon. Just got mine after the patch and very disappointed that I can't dye it however I'd like or have to worry about everyone on higher shaders seeing the puke green tail.

    I saw posts about this and went in to check. Yep, same issue here. And there was even a patch to load, with no patch notes -- but whatever that was, it does not include a fix for this issue.

    I hope the fix is soon.

    Edit: I wonder if the patch notes from yesterday about fixing the rein movement for charr riders is a factor? Tweaking something in the mount to animate the reins could have caused the glitch.

    Same, the skin is rather hideous no matter how I color it

    I hope it is a bug, because if this is intended... they literally had people spend 2000 gems first and then change it after. As for me, I opened £70+ worth of BLC for outfit and got the skin from the chest, so really I paid even more than 2000 gems for it.

    STOP TELLING ME I'M NOT FORCED TO DO SOMETHING - I AM AN AP HUNTER SO YES, I HAVE TO DO IT
    ....AND GIVE HAIRSTYLES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't think it's intended, it looks kinda horrible with some colors. Try orange on the ears. :p Probably some poor soul wanted to fix the animation bug they mentioned (didn't even realize there was one) and re-exported the model thinking "right, I only changed a tiny bit on the animation rig, what could possibly go wrong?"...

    They seem to have fixed it! Yay for the patch! Now I'm paranoidly peering into the ears and wondering if some shading there is a remnant of the bug or is original to the skin .. :)

    Yeah, it's fixed. Looks like it originally was. Ty whoever fixed this so fast. <3
