I have noticed that when I am playing now I can’t aim down to harvest anything that is short or near the ground. For instance, if I use the Mitraen Ankh to harvest lingering essence I have to swing then duck right away or I just swing above the dead body. I have also noticed this issue with smaller rock outcrops and the stone pick or pick axe. If I don’t swing then duck I just swing above them and don’t hit anything. Its not game breaking but it is annoying especially when I don’t want to collect what is in the NPCs inventory because I have to aim the camera away before swinging. I have tried killing myself and exiting and restarting the game but I just always aim straight ahead. I have only played on single player so I don’t know if the issue will recur on multiplayer. Found some similar posts from a while ago for PC but nothing reported for xbox. Not sure if it is just something everyone else accepts or if there is a fix I don’t know about. I didn’t always have this issue and it seems like it just started recently.
Steps on how to reproduce issue:
- Equip pick axe or Mitraen Ankh
- Kill NPC or find small stone outcrop
- Try to hit it with both heavy and light attacks
- Hits never connect and you just swing in the air
