Possibly the Worst Weapon Clipping Issue Ever?

Recommended Posts


November's Trading post brought a lot of goodies, as usual, but Monks got a bit of a raw deal. One  item in particular has been causing a lot of backlash and player disappointment. A lot of WoW items, weapons in particular, have some serious clipping issues, but the Monk staff from this month's Trading Post clipping is truly on a whole new level of awful, and is possibly the worst case of clipping I've ever seen in the game.

Update: it seems there has been a fix, but not to the main clipping issue, with the staff now being held like the artifact weapon, but it's still a mess when sheathed, as Drokash reports:

Source: They've partially fixed the Trading Post Monk staff: It's now held like the Brewmaster artifact, though the keg clipping still currently persists.

Hopefully this indicates Blizzard are aware of the clipping issue as well as will try to fix it.

Original post continued:

The level of terrible varies from race to race, but the smaller ones are really getting a quite a faceful:

Source: Maragondi: Meh... It was foolish to hope for anything more.

Some races even get a whole second face out of it (this one kind of works for me to be honest, getting a whole Ogre Vulpera vibe)!

Source: EducationalLook4: Might have something on my face. Can't quite see what it is.

And then there's the full-face transformation:

Source: BlockadeShieldAddict: "Should we test this keg model in any way, shape, or form?" "Nah, ship it!"

Meanwhile Pandaren have a different problem, as they basically absorb the entire keg:

Source: Findrel_Underbakk: I regret my purchase :(

The issues are mostly due to the staff using a regular staff setup instead of the Monk artifact one, which sheathes over the shoulder instead of on the back. Hopefully Blizzard can address the clipping issue and change the sheathing type, as it is a pretty cool item and one of the highlights for the month.

Monks in general got a pretty raw deal this month it seems, as other items of theirs also have clipping issues.

If you remember any worse clipping issues than the staff, do let me know in the comments!

That's just monk life. Can't have fun things, can't have nice looking things, constantly outshined by every other class in every role despite having, mostly, fun gameplay.

That's just crazy. The funny thing about it is that it is basically the same model as one of the artifact weapons for monks and the artifact doesn't clip.

I know you're joking, but as someone who has mainly and only been playing as a monk ever since MoP for every tier I have to disagree. We have the most funnest things, some of the coolest looking things and nothing feels better than outshining other players who think Monks bring nothing to the table. You're right about the fun gameplay though, as that's the whole reason why I never really could get into an alt. None of the other classes give me as much joy as playing a monk. Even in my own raids people keep saying how monks aren't that great while I'm literally in the top 4 dps in pretty much every fight.

We monks don't have to deal with actual shitty things, we only have to deal with people who think we're stuck with shitty things. 😁

*Rolls away*

      Another smaller batch today, as Retribution gets a look, as well as three dungeons, and critters get a nerf!
      December 7 (Source)
      Paladin Retribution Blessed Champion rebuilt to resolve issues such as pulling enemies that are too far away or through walls. Wake of Ashes, Searing Light, and Seething Flames revised so that they do not damage enemies through walls. Dungeons
      Critters can no longer benefit from Challenger’s Might and adorably kill your party. Black Rook Hold Addressed an issue with Fel Vomit where the line visual can fail to attach to players. Darkheart Thicket Updated Rotheart Keeper’s Vile Burst radius to match with the size of Vile Mushroom. The Everbloom Addressed an issue where Yalnu’s Verdant Eruption can stun pets and guardians.

      The fourth week of Dragonflight Season 3 is here and we're looking at the current Mythic+ tier list.
      The following post is based on data from U.GG. Therefore, the data presented here may differ from Petko's Mythic Tier Lists maintained on our site.
      How the Data is Calculated
      U.gg's tier list is created by evaluating damage and healing scores from the very best players and factoring in the frequency of each spec's appearances in the highest rankings of the current Mythic+ season. The tier list of each spec is determined by its effectiveness and prevalence at the highest levels of Mythic+ play.
      Mythic+ Tier List for Dragonflight Season 3 Week 4
      This week's affixes are: Tyrannical, Storming, Ranging.

      IamEllekk recreated Eversong Woods using Houdini and Blender and here's the result.
       As you can see in the below image, we have the characteristic Blood Elf architecture and the Burning Crystal.

      We're back in the department of fortunate loot drops, this time, with Tindral Sageswift dropping four copies of the same item.
      Tindral blessed a very lucky raid group with 4 pieces of Eternal Kindler's Greatstaff. While this isn't the record-breaking group who looted 5 Smoldering Seedlings from Larodar, it's still nice to see good old Tindral handing so many copies of the same item!
