I can’t consume food & potion while holding a fishing rod? Why?

Perhaps it is because of this:

No it’s a genuine crash. Also let the auto crash log do it’s thing and upload. Upload time would be 4:02PM Mountain time 1/19/2023.

I can replicate this as well. Changing regions shouldn’t cause a crash.

I imagine it’s a placeholder, as the store is inaccessible in PTR. :wink:

I’m still downloading, does the emote page show the correct icon Ingame?

2nd price TOP numbers do not match between UI and title’s description.

Emotes may not work on the PTR, but we’re aware of that!
