Archery from Horseback

Game mode: [Online private]
Type of issue: [Bug]
Server type : [PvP ]
Region: [America]

While riding a horse and attempting to use a bow I can only fire if I tap the left mouse button (quick fire). If I draw back on my bow (right mouse button) my character get stuck in the draw animation and I cannot fire. I have to un-equip the bow in order to reset it.

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Mount a horse
  2. Equip a bow
  3. Draw back on the bow
  4. Look silly holding a knocked arrow on a drawn bow while your enemy laughs at you

Hey @Tempestorm

Before we relay this report to our team, could you let us know if there are any mods installed in the server you’re playing on?

I have noticed while testing out the new mounts (Single player), I have found that having any mod(s) active will prevent the use of all weapons while mounted and the mount is moving. Just thought i post this here to let someone know xD

I have not had a chance to test this with my mods disabled yet. If it is a mod I suspect it to be either Fashionist or Emberlight. I will try and test it after work today.

@Sheldron, If this is the case then it is being affected the same as Follower feeding. If any mod is installed Followers stop eating food from their inventory to heal.

Thank you for the information. I will try to test this later today.

In one of my test i had one cosmetic mod on and the issue happened but the mounts do work if there is no mods active.

It also looks like i was wrong about it being all mods. I am using atrubute booster, sp boss and improved quility of life and it appears they aren’t causing the issue.

@Sheldron, care to post your full mod list so we can compare it to mine?

After testing my mods. It looks like mods that changes thralls/pets even cosmeticly and was not updated to new patch will cause my issue. also mods that affect pickup of thralls/pets will remove certain elements, like the new stats option on the thrall/pet redial. Also with cretian mods i could not open thrall/pet inventory from redial. Luckuly i have determined that all these issues are caused by mods not being updated yet. Inculding my original problem of using weapons on mounts. I hope that this will solve your problem too.

I use Litman Durability, no more duribility-tools, atribute booster gg-brand, paladianItemStackAndWeight, improved Quility of life, and SP_Boss_HP. these are the mods that work i deleted a few that didnt.

Its one of your mods. Javelin Improved had the same issue before I updated, and t has to do with the enum it and many other mods that add new weapon combos have. Just need to isolate it to which mod and let the author know.

I play on official PVE and there is no problem with archery from horse back (apart from me being unable to hit anything)

Well, I am happy to report that I can now shoot my bow from horseback and pikes don’t get stuck with heavy attack anymore either.

I did update a couple of my mods this afternoon and presume one of those fixed it.
