Reens, Cemaros and the AQW Bug Hunter team are busy squashing the bugs you submit each week to the Bug Tracker at www.Artix.com/bugs.

Check back weekly to see if the bug you reported has been addressed.  Please remember that not all bugs are "easy fixes" so some reported and confirmed bugs from each week may not be on the fixed list as they will require more time or a different person to fix them.

Extras for this week -  No such thing as a “simple” art fix!
Some of you may remember this tweet from Memet.  This is especially true of some reports we got this week so I’m going to give you some more info on why these cannot be fixed. 

The layering on the character model goes hand -> weapon -> shoulder-> rest of body.  This is what allows things to be where they are supposed to be.

We can’t move shields to the outside of the back hand at this time.  This is an engine limitation on the layering, not an art bug.

Now for the really fun part!

Non-standard shaped armours!  Isn’t that fun?  This one actually cannot be changed because it’s all one layer.  That’s the only way it will work.  As you can see in the (horrifying) picture above, the hand on the armour isn’t anywhere close to the hand on the character model.  And the hand has to stay where it is to retain the same look as the monster version.  

Non-standard shaped armours will generally have some “derp” to them that is what has to be done to make them work as an armour.  So, these are not bugs, they are Easter Eggs!
