  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: Refreshing move on Blunderbuss

Will this be adressed? You are removing Plagues Strikes from the Blackgurads ranged weapons, but this is even more busted. Its not possible to craft with Refreshing Moves on Blunderbuss, because I assume you realized it would be totally broken. But there still is 2 named blunderbusses with Refreshing Move on them, aswell as the faction gun you can buy. Is this intended?

I want to try out Blunderbuss, but right now with this “bug?” its not worth using anything other blunderbuss than one with Refreshing Move because you can literally spam out abilties

This bug existed months ago and was fixed in the February update, but was resurrected again after the March update.

  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Orofena
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: Shrine Maiden dragon laser beam hits twice, also honing after firing

  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: It hurts and it sucks and I die

  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced: N/A
  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: Shrine Maiden chick with the green orb has an attack that points a laser in the direction she fires, BUT the dragon thing she whips out travels it’s own line. Before the hotfix, you dodged the laser and the dragon effect was a harmless illusion. Now it hits, and hits twice. 5280 + 5280 is displayed shortly before my body crumbles to the ground in defeat and rage. One problem is that when she charges it up, you see the laser, but the projectile dragon thing fires a moment later and goes after the player in a changed direction. I bet this makes Dynasty last boss real fun.

  • What is your character name in New World: Iphora Malak
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Midgard
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: “Shirking Fortification” doesnt work as intended. Whenever you get the buff more than once with the 6s window, it stack, however the timer doesnt reset and goes back to 6s. I am not sure if this is intended, but this leads to dodging and using the perk sometimes being counterproductive, as you would lose the shirking stack you get immediately. I report this as a bug because I don’t think its intended and it makes the perk incredibly weak.

  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: 1. Dodge an attack and get a fortify stack 2. When the timer of the fortify stack is low, dodge another attack and have 2x stacks. 3. Watch timer not resetting and double fortify running out almost instantly.

  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: after killing Corrupted Rabbit for daily Defiled Foot and Diamond Gypsum when i got to bag to collect it and pressing “E” button my client froze and after about 30 seconds i was back on Windows, no error message, no game process working. After logging back and collecting remaining 4 feet and 2 gypsum and killing over 60 more rabbits i can’t get those 2 items i was trying to pick up while crash occured (i’m guessing foot and gypsum that i wasn’t able to drop, no idea if there were a chest or no since client froze before i saw what’s in the bag)

  • What is your character name in New World: Spittzette
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Orofena

  • What is your character name in New World: Spittzette
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Orofena
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: Enemies too close, projectiles fired go hard up and right
  • Is this a bug or an exploit: Bug
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: Missed/Bugged shots means rage
  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue: Sometimes yes
  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced: N/A
  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: Let enemy get too close (and by too close, I mean, taste their boogers close), use weapon like lifestaff or void gauntlet and fire (left click) shots at them. Projectiles commonly miss at point blank and shoot far out and away at a jagged angle. I suspect the enemy entity is between the player and point of projectile release, so that tiny gap discrepancy results in the projectile just flying off.

Can reproduce most often using void gauntlet left click than anything else I’ve tried.

Apparently something got corrupted with the latest merge, including me since I can’t sign up to fight in an invasion to kill corrupted. Says I cannot sign up to fight against my own faction.
