Facial Hair options & Me


#1

So, this may seem somewhat trivial, but it is bugging me, a month or so ago I tried changing the facial hair for one of my toons…all it kept showing is clean shaven regardless of what I bought, and from which facial hair vendor, I thought it was a bug so I petitioned and a GM replied, I was offline atm, but he gave me the Option I last bought and a refund on what I paid. I thought the case was closed at this point.

Fast forward to this month; Once again I tried to change the Facial hair and once again…it only shows Clean shaven, no facial hair shows at all, so I sent a petition 3 days ago, no one responded, deleted and sent a simpler one today, again nothing. and frankly it is annoying me somewhat, I can’t petition a GM everytime I want to change my character’s appearance, And I can’t just want something and not be able to do it, it vexes me and sort of breaks my immersion or fun…or whatever.

Has anyone faced a similar problem? If so did you manage to solve it without a GM’s interference? I hope I can be helped with this my toon is level 60 atm, which is a bit far ahead for me to Remake, so I hope there’s another way. Thank you

I don’t change facial hair of my characters very often, but I’ve done it a few times anyway, and never had that problem.
What’s annoying me is that sometimes I’ve bought some from the vendors, than when I tried to use them it said that it can’t be applied.


#3

Often my character will show no facial hair on the character select screen, and then have no facial hair when i play ingame for a while, then suddenly it pops up.
Maybe you have to wait for the beard to load


#4

Often? They stopped showing on character selection screen since ages. I don’t even remember anymore when this bug came out… :laughing:


#5

It sucks that such easy to spot bugs got never fixed… ok they might be not game changing but what does it say on the quality of the product since i dont think beards on char screen are hard to fix? Its something about the game both old and new ppl immediatley notice.


#6

They never showed on Character screen as far as I’m concerned, and I made my peace with that long ago, but not showing in game when I actively pay from my already limited Coin-supply to get them bugs me a bit…especially that; No, it doesn’t “load in time” it just never shows up, it’s been weeks now :roll_eyes:


#7

Have you tried buying the “shave option” (costs 5 silver I think) before buying another beard before? I don’t have any male characters so I can’t test it but maybe that solves it? It costs a little bit more but maybe that saves you from paying more money for beards that never appear.


#8

let me guess your toon was khitan? cause i had same problem spent 1g for nothing, whilst with other races never had problems


#9

Tried that b4, yes, still nothing. :anguished:


#10

Yeah, Khitan…I cycled thru perhaps the entire facial hair options at the vendor…but it is adamant about being clean-shaven apparently :roll_eyes:


#11

No, it’s not needed. I changed facial hair several times, without any problem, and I never used the shave option.

But, indeed I never tried to change facial hair on a Khitai character…
