    combat animation bug?

    I don't know if the rest of the hunter community has seen this, but what has happened with the combat animation when firing a bow? Seems that 12.1 added an extra frill when hunters start combat, the drawing of the bow. The problem is that I can be bow in hand, half way through my induction of whatever skill, when my hunter decides he needs to put away the bow he is already holding and pull out another bow. Was the bow I had in hand not good enough? Is this new bow some super-secret new weapon. Or is it just a simple glitch in timing? Both my wife and I have both seen it on our hunters and I was curious if anyone else had seen it.

    I've seen this on my Hunter as well. I looks like she pulls the string back to start the induction, and THEN remembers that her bow is still on her back and reaches back to get it. I've heard others who also have it on their Hunters, so it might be a problem for a lot of us! She does the motion correctly when she puts the bow on her back again when she's done shooting though.

    Happening here too. I submitted a bug report a few days back but received no reply that I saw. At the very start of combat, he will pull a string and arrow, but the bow stays on his back. And it began after this last patch. It may seem like a small thing, but something like that has an effect on the feel of the entire game.

    It may have a lower priority than other issues in the game. After all, you can still make things drop dead.

    (PS: I have the same problem for a long time.)

    Got the same problem and I find it really annoying. I actually don't think I'll play again until it's fixed.

    My problem is when I pull back my bow....it is pointed to the ground and my arm is in a funny looking position. It just doesn't look right!

    Doo doo doo, lookin' out my back door...
    I have hunters of three different races. I first noticed it on my Hobbit. The animation is pretty close to immersion breaking (ok I am kidding). It really looks herky jerky, and my hunters should audition for Cir Du Sole with the contortions exhibited.
