    Unhappy S&B attack animation still broke

    This mainly affects human S&B's, and has been a known issue by both QA & Dev's for at least 8 months now.
    It is a crude video (sorry) (I was trying to slow it down) and will post a better one later today.
    But basically, I can't even play either of my formerly tweaked out intim S&B's.
    From the floor angle, you can see the character "hopping" out of it's "socket" and skipping off to his left side when he slide's back in place.
    It is on the 4th attack animation as clearly demonstrated in this video.


    The Update with all the sweeping changes are great; Overall you absolutely nailed it with this expansion,
    & the rework on all the vital systems. Seriously, a tremendous job.
    Now please follow all the PR work & player interaction you all have done a great job with, and fix this

    Between this and losing hit points every time I swap weapons Turbine really wants me to give up on my sword&board Paladin.

    At least this one finally made it to the know issue list.

    Yea, I stopped playing my human fighter when this started happening. I got tired of constantly having to run back to the right during long fights.

    Default same problem, different animation

    Human Male 20 Bard is having the same problem but only when wielding a falchion. With greataxe, no problems. And it seems to be a problem with males only as my human female characters have no problems swinging any weapon I choose.

    Suggestion for video - do it while hitting the training dummy until eventually you are no longer hitting it and swinging at air.

    Do it on the edge of a cliff until you fall off.

    Yeah have same issue with my S&B Pali and also when using eSOS on my fighter I move slightly backwards. Both are human male characters, no issue with any other characters animations just seems to be human males.

    I've got a completionist wannabe that I'm running thru a bard life atm, 15bard 2 fighter 1 cleric atm, he has fairly a good stunning blow dc since he buffs up to 50 str atm, so I decided to look for a 2h stunning weapon on the ah last night and surprisingly it's on greatswords now instead of just mauls etc. I bought the greatsword and was just playing around on the ship and noticed it when attacking the training dummy that I was moving farther and farther away from it.

    This also happens on mine. It also happens on the same character when using the EAGA and improved sundering, I slide forward.

    No answer from the devs?
    OK, maybe I didn't sugar coat the thread.
    So my human S&B are worthless & not playable?
    How about a True Heart & change all the RR items & wep's so I can make him a dwarf?
    Any word about this devs?

    With greatswords you go backwards. CitW is obnoxious enough to find the right hitbox, but on characters that move when you swing, you have to keep stopping and finding the right place to stand again and again.

    Good post,
    I'll make a video of it over the weekend.
    I would have made one after my OP, but I haven't logged on since.!
    It's bugs like this one that make this game very unappealing.

    Wish would get a reply or someone saying they read post and is known. Read by Dev only would make me happy.

    Tanked FOT on S&B human male other night and really it is bad enough having to keep moving back after he knocks you back, but also readjusting self every 2 seconds hurts when keeping the hate up. The loss in generation makes it just a lil harder to keep aggro (didn't lose it) when have fury archers and such laying into him.

    The character is shelved now until this animation is fixed which is to bad, because believe it or not S&B tanking is viable and fun again if have a clue what you are doing.

    It was acknowledged on the lamannia forums and it is also on the known issue list now. (Not sure that makes it any more likely to get fixed though)
