    Mysteriously disappearing weapon?

    In the middle of fighting beasties, my weapon randomly disappears. Is this an effect of the beasties or a bug with the program?

    It happened when I first started to play on another character, stopped and has kicked back up. I noticed it while I was in Angmar fighting Orcs.

    Any thoughts?

    Certain mobs apply a "disarm" effect that removes your weapon temporarily. This also disables any skills that require the weapon, so those will all be grayed out whenever you get hit by a disarm.

    However, I have been seeing a bug lately, where my weapon fails to reappear at the end of the disarm. My skills all come back, and my character goes through the attack animations normally, but the model of the weapon remains invisible. For me, this has been happening in the Lone-Lands, though also with Orcs. (I think there are several varieties of Orc capable of inflicting the disarm debuff.)

    Ah, thank you. That makes much more sense now.

    I believe, however, that I have also had issues with having my skills return, but not having a weapon to use them with. I will have to keep an eye out for that one later on.

    I have experienced similar issues with missing models (not disarmed)
    Usually it happends to me if I get attacked during or shortly after harvesting a node.

    The "missing weapon" happens on my warden when I switch out a weapon in combat. Nothing to do with being disarmed; it doesn't happen all the time; sometimes the weapon model will come back if I switch again, sometimes it doesn't. But the glow effect of the LI is still there. Can be disconcerting at times.

    As far as farming nodes, I've found if I start an attack immediately after getting the node, without stepping away from it, no matter which character I'm on, 100% of the time there will be no weapon. Take one step away, and all is fine.

    same with goblins in the Midgewater marshes today.
