I'm not sure where to post this as it's kind of rare.

Has anyone experienced situations where the creature's weapon vanishes yet they continue to animate as if they were still wielding the weapon? Of the the two times I've seen this, one was an ogre berserker and just recently a doom knight's sword vanished.

I can't recall if they actually scored a hit with their invisible (non-existant?) weapon, so I'm not sure whether it was from a model not loading properly or perhaps some other arcane reason.

I don't remember seeing something like that, but I have had issues with invisible untargettable monsters from time to time, usually in MP but not SP. No idea what causes it. I haven't sent a bug report to BW because I can't reproduce it reliably.

Did you perform a successful Dis-Arm attack on them? If yes, they put their weapon into their inventory then perhaps their AI action doesn't switch to fist-fight mode. Just speculating.

I think I've had my own characters do this a time or two after drinking a pot or casting a spell. Doing an unequip/re-equip cleared it. Very random. Not reproducable.

Seen weapons disappear all the time, it looks like an animation glitch. I've seen caster PCs loose there weapons when spells were in queue while resting, I've seen barbarian NPCs lose 'em after going into rage and caster NPCs after a casting sequence. The weapons are there, just can't see 'em.

This is definetly a graphics glitch, happens to your own player occasionally too if you notice... when you switch around weapons mostly.

Monsters occasionally have this too, eg. Fist fighting Zerkers that hit like a greatsword (because they ARE using a greatsword).

I get this when I transition often. The equipment is still equiped, but just dosent' showup unless you de-equip/re-equip.

It's funny as heck with Hagrette. tongue.gif

Yeah. I could make it happen pretty consistently last night as follows:

Use Heal Kit on partymate -> attack.with bow; she's using her bow, but you can't see it. Can y'all send a report on anything useful you find out about this this into nwbugs@bioware.com ?

It happened to me last night. ohmy.gif

I was near the dock in Paradan Docks, just standing doing nothing and I used the who rod. My sword and shield, had completely vanished both from visibly equipped on my character as well as the icons in the hotkey slot. Using the who rod again made them reappear, but the hotkey slot was still blank.
