Buffs keep turning off and on during game play


#1

My buffs keep turning off and on. Switching tools/spaces in my hand triggers it, going in and out of water triggers it, etc. over and over. I recorded it, but YT is being weird this morning & I can’t upload it. Also submitted a report in game.


#2

I logged off and back on. All is well now :+1:


#3

This is what it was doing before I logged out:


#4

I’ve not been able to reproduce it so far as shown in the video. Even though you said that it’s all working well now, presumably it hasn’t happened since then?


#5

It hasn’t happened since then. If it starts happening again, I’ll make a note & record it.


#6

this seems to happen to me almost every other week. i log out and log back in. One time i ran around screaming help for the lol’s


#7

Seems to only happen to me when I’m on during the experations of buffs. At least that’s the last time I remember seeing it.


#8

its the early warning system, like when beacons are bout to expire!


#9

Yep, it sometimes happens when buffs are about to expire or were just renewed, maybe some kind of de-sync. I’ve seen it happen a few times, I recorded it a while ago as well (January):


#10

That seems like an extreme example in the video. Does it still do this in the game, even though the video itself was recorded back in January?


#11

This happened to me 2 weeks ago last I remember, when Iconic renewed weekly buffs.


#12

Just happened again during Portal Seeker’s buff renewal:

Just submitted game logs, here’s a video as well:

Movement got wonky as well as client and server kept disagreeing about whether or not I had Grapple and Run active.

It stopped a few minutes later.


Frozen screen upon death
#13

Happened to me yesterday when my Guild buff ran out. Relog fixed it.


#14

Same exact thing for me today too.


#15

I’ve had it happen to me as well. If I switch characters it may stop, but not always. Also it may happen with one character and not another.

I’m on PS4 pro.

Edit: For me, most of the time It seems to be triggered after going through a portal to a different world.


#16

I think someone posted a video / gif of this recently, but I can’t recall which forum topic it was in. Does anyone have a link to it?


#17

Further up this thread? Video from majorvex is in the third answer, 12th has the gif and an other video @vdragon


#18

Ah yes, thanks, it was indeed that one from @Pfiffel. I’ll add this to the bug database.
