Unable to equip axe, pick or sword

Game mode: Online
Problem: Bug | Performance
Region: Oceanic server 3975

Cant use tools or swords.
Was working fine hours ago, same everytime after log out and in.
Game IMPOSSIBLE to play now, need solution fast

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

I had this issue before as well. Had to drop all weapons/tools from the radial menu and then re-equip what I wanted. It was like one of the weapons bugged keeping me from changing main hand equipment

Problem persistent after swapping gear in out of hotbar/wheel.
Had to stash all my stuff in box and suicide to fix this.
Nothing solves problems like suicide does

sounds like someone died with a two handed weapon in hand anyhoo put two hand weapon in top slot (slot 1), select it, swing/attack once -> problem fixed
