    Since I started play BDO in July 2017 there are many floating NPCs in Heidel that very annoying me and ruins the game immersion, can you fix this? Thank you!
    ...and before you ask, yes i cleared the game cache.

    These are just few examples, this issue happens to every walking NPC at random intervals.

    They're everywhere, not just Heidel.

    Like a lot of bugs that have been in the game for years now, PA don't really give a **** about fixing them and it's really annoying.

    The first thing I saw after making my archer :)

    Scared the hell out of me because I didn't see them coming at all since I was so zoomed into my char. Just two wagons came out of no where and ran me over... :D.


    The floating npcs really are annoying... I was trying to take a pic of my archer and this male npc came up to him in calpheon floating at a really awkward eye level....

    Sometimes I really wish I could throw npcs -.- I'm starting to think they do this stuff on purpose :D.

    As others mentioned, there are floating NPCs everywhere (not just Heidel) and this is going on for over a year and a half now. Also it's not only floating NPCs there are cases where NPCs are multiplied, underground, underwater, flying and so many NPCs that follow broken paths (into mountains, uphills, into rivers, underground and so on).

    I've had a thread on all these NPC issues that I kept updating since May (I think?), however mods decided to suddenly delete the thread while it was "Under investigation" for about 3 months. Are we supposed to accept these issues as "Working as intended" now or something? Are devs going to keep ignoring this stuff? It seriously feels like playing an early alpha state of the game seeing all these broken NPC mechanics all the time.D:<

    Thanks for reporting this to us! I will make sure to tell the developers to turn the gravity back on.

    Best regards,

    This is annoying. Lets not forget the NPC's whose path takes them through rocks and walls like they were David Copperfield. Like the troll encampment north of Calph to name one. Just passing through.

    It's still happening. Is this "investigation" still going on?

    I saw a sailboat sail up the road past the Velia central market guy and keep on going up to the bartali farm yesterday. Very funny lol.

    Edit just saw the double post but my web browser reloaded the window and I did not realise the first post actually worked.
