Front bar weapons disappearing (visual bug)

MythikShadow
When going through a wayshrine or into delves, etc.. weapons on the front bar will disappear. This doesn't happen all the time but it happens enough to notice. Unequipping the weapon and reslotting it fixes the issue. This is just a visual bug as the weapons function properly even when you can't see them.

    I've had something similar to this, and it has thrown me off-guard while doing trials (such as vMA) because I use the graphical cue of seeing what weapon is equipped -- sometimes my front-bar weapon will appear in the same style as my backbar (IE, my spinner's lightning staff looks suddenly like my vMA lightning). It usually happens with Maelstrom weapons, it seems. It doesn't seem to be an issue with outfits, as it has happened even when I don't have an outfit.

    I've also had a strange issue where my backbar weapon appears under my feet when I switch to dual-wield. (It's pretty amusing, though!) Here's a picture: https://s22.postimg.cc/imdxh0e35/bowboarding.png

    it happens alot on my lowbie new werewolf, and only on my 2hander where I have to take my weapon off, and put it on again to be able to see it, dont know if it has anything to the rework of werewolf, its the same skill bar where my ww ulitmate is also

    looks weird visuel :) my hands are still in the positions where they hold the 2hander, but 2hander is invisible :D

    I have it all the time. Pretty frustrating. I get it in combat or when the weapons/shield is suppose to be on the back of the toon when not in use. First person or third person it doesn't matter.

    Was going to make a thread on this but I saw this. I hope it's proper to post in here saying I have it as well.

    I have experienced this as well, Typically when using the "OutFit Station" after applying new models/looks or colors to gear the gear starts disappearing after weapon swapping or one set will stop showing up.

    Please ESO Fix this.

    Thanks for the reports, all. We're aware and working on getting this fixed (for what it's worth, I ran into the same thing on my character last week).

    Bump.
    Still have this bug, very often. Like most of the time after changing location (entering dungeon, using shrines, teleporting to someone etc).

    Yes, this is till a problem. DW stamblade has had one or both weapons disappear over the last couple of days. I must say, it's actually more offputting than you'd think!

    FYI, this is also an issue with the undaunted weapon packs in the crown store in the preview. For one-handed weapons and shields, the character goes into a default unarmed pose and lets the weapon/shield clip through the character's head, and it shows my equipped staff(the outfit style anyway) under my character on the floor.

    Both seem tied together.

    If we wanted "challenge" in City of Heroes we would solo the content. If we wanted fun we would form a random PUG the majority of the time and just "wreck face!" feeling overpowered. That was the most fun of any game I've ever played so why does no other "newer" game design that way? I guess they like players never feeling good enough and the inevitable "max level rat/worm/insect/this-shouldn't-be-a-threatening-enemy-but-it-is" effect.

    This only happens to me on my nightblade, and i notice it more when i am stamina based. not sure if there is a connection.

    also as magicka , my staff will drag between my legs on the ground as my other bar is active. again nightblade.

    when i play the other characters , this does not happen at all.

    My weapon in front slot keeps disapperaing in the middle of delve/dungeon fights and leaves me boxing with my fists. I'm on the PC. It is getting so I can hardly get through a fight without my weapon going away. Anybody had this problem?

    Am I necro-ing a thread? Well, damn it! I'm going to because the bug is happening to me ALL the time. Front bar weapons are disappearing and its so very irksome to see the back bar weapon dragging around at my character's feet.

    Yup. Horrible In PvP. If you can’t see your weapons good luck envisioning your attacks. Fix is long overdue.

    It's been two months and this bug has not been solved yet.
    Please, make it a priority one because it is very annoying.
    Every time I change zone or enter a dungeon I have to take off and re-equip my sword.

    It happened about 2 ~ 3 months , well ... I won't check what weapon I'm using , I just look at the skill bar .

    I don't think it could be fixed because It takes forever .

    Over two months now and the bug still happens every day. I guess there's little hope for a fix as it's now after Murkmire's release?

    This happens far too frequently, and since my healer has a restro bar and a destro bar, seeing which staff is equipped can be the difference between life and death for my team members. So goodbye getting no death achieves when I can't accurately see which bar I'm on.

    I can confirm it happens to me everyday with my primary bar which is DW, never happened to my 2nd. To fix it I have to unequip or swap weapons from the inventory which causes them to visually appear again in my char hands. The easiest way to trigger this is to join a group dungeon - you start the fight bareheaded!

    I hope this helps to find where is the problem, I just noticed that I was with this issue on my front bar, the sword was appearing but the shield no, then I went to a blacksmith station and it removed my helmet, then when I left the station my helmet come back (usual stuff) but then the issue was fixed too, my shield was appearing again.

    I've swapped my weapons between the two bars, now it is happens every time on the second bar.
    For me the the problem seems to be with the one handed + shield, no problem with the two-handed
