creep NPCs

since 1.08 1.09 patch there have been NPC not animating. It's not all NPC, and I haven't noticed a pattern to help identify where the problem lies. But to put it simply, some NPCs don't seem to have any animations other than the very rudimentary ones like walking around and assuming fight stance. And in some cases they don't move, they just kinda warp around on you.

For instance if I end up in a fight with 4 NPCs, maybe 1 or 2 of the bunch are creepin'. The others are fine. The creep NPCs will not give any visual indication as to what they are doing. I'll get hit or register a block from no apparent source, but a creep NPC will warp right next to me as if they were the one throwing the blow. So I think their data is being maintained correctly, they're just not animating correctly.

this doesn't seem to be zone specific, I've experienced it in every zone, but it does seem more common in the zones that are more strained that the rest (Adel , Hunting grounds, and Oratian Q).
I wish I had more to give you. I will try and note the pattern of this.


  • I've also seen player's avatars doing this, but it is much more rare.
  • Huh. I never once had this bug happen to me, unless I'm lagging hardcore.

    It happens more if their is someone loading into the region. When two or more load in the same time its a nightmare for ps4
  • Hello Skun_Qi,

    Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention. I will pass this along for further investigation. If you have any further details you believe may be helpful, please feel free to share them.

    We sincerely apologize for any frustration this bug may have caused. Thanks again for your patience and support.
  • it's no worries. I'm enjoying this game a lot. And quite happy that you guys are as concerned with any bugs as you are.

    I forgot to mention I'm on ps4
    and Jeantall's added info is relevant. It seems to be connected with player population or something network related.
