Char Name (optional) Alteon.
Bug Info: What happened/what did you see that wasn't right?
The Virin WarpForcer in the quest from the WG Tower (Virin infestion) is shapeshifting.
Details What happened? What's the bug? Use as much detail as possible!
When the battle started, the monster had a helmet on and a beamsword equiped. The next turn, she suddenly removed her helmet and got a new weapon. The turn after that, she had yet another face and yet another weapon. When she died, her hair, face and weapon changed again.
The next battle was another VWF. This one started as a blonde female and turned into a brown male with a steel jaw next turn. The turn thereafter, 'it' was female again (but yet another one than the blonde one). They have around 4 different 'personalities' each, and they don't shift every turn.
Before Bug occurred: What were you doing prior to the problem? Logged on, did the new Satiren quest, clicked on the inspection quest and got taken to the Virin Infestation quest.
During Bug: What happened during the bug/what issues or errors did you see? Monster is shapeshifting.
After bug/game crash: What was the end result? Game crash/freeze? Battle finished, quest continued normally.
Did the game kick you out? No.
What was the error message/code? No.
Screenshot link: None, as there are way to many shapeshifts involved.
Did you try clearing your cache? Before or after the bug happened?: Yes, before and after.
Did the bug happen again?: (If it did not, no need to post!) Yes.
Graphics quality setting: (Low, Medium, High, Best) Low.
Browser type and version: (Firefox? Internet Explorer? Opera? Another one?) IE.
Operating System: (Windows 98? XP? Vista? Another type?) Vista.
Flash version: Latest.
Edit: Well, it seems like this was already known (''Virin WarpForcer changes heads / weapons on some attacks.''), so I'll just summarize the additional info here:
- They can change gender as well.
- They can change weapons/hairstyle/gender after, before and during attacks (in the last case, they switch back to 'normal' after the attack).
- When they die, they can change again (and not into the one you started the battle with).
- I've seen a few head changes, while the gender stays the same (as in, a female head on a male body but not the other way around).
- I've also seen one that changed twice in one turn (before and after attacking).
On another note, Virin Stormfront seems to switch weapons as well (suddenly trading his sword for a gun), but that's probably intentional, right?
I believe so - he does it on an attack, as I recall. ~Aelthai
