[balance] NPC can quick swap weapons

Game mode: (Online official | Online private | Single-player)
Type of issue: Misc
Server type: [Enter one of the following: PvP | PvE-Conflict | PvE]
Region: [Please enter your server region]

Recent game balance changes have enforced a delay between when players swap weapons and players may use the newly equipped weapons.

NPC mobs do not honor this limitation.

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. Find an archer in the wild (relic hunter, skeleton, whatever)
  2. if you can get close without if backing off a cliff or something, the archer will swap to a melee weapon and instantly attack without a delay.
  3. HIGHLY annoying with NPC archers that attack while retreating faster than the player can advance while attacking, who then swap to daggers, tumble away, then swap back to bow and resume attacking without a pause.

They are exploiting the animation cancel :rofl:
