Weapon modifier icon disappears after spectral coating is applied

Game mode: any
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: PVE
Region: US


Applying spectral coating to a modified weapon causes the weapon’s modification icon to be replaced, and it never returns.


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. Craft a weapon
  2. Apply a weapon fitting to it
  3. Observe the weapon icon turns purple, and the small weapon fitting icon is in the corner of the weapon icon
  4. Apply spectral coating to the weapon
  5. Observe the weapon fitting icon is replaced by the spectral coating icon
  6. Attack an undead creature until the spectral coating is used up
  7. Observe the spectral coating iron is removed from the weapon icon
  8. Observe the weapon fitting properties are still in place on the weapon, but the weapon fitting icon has not returned to its place on the weapon icon; that space is now blank, as if the weapon was unmodified, but the icon background is still purple and it cannot be modified further. It still counts as modified - this is a visual glitch only.

Can confirm this also seems to happen with poison (eg reaper toxin) - I suspect it’s probably true for any of the temporary coatings. And, as you say, seems to be purely a visual glitch on the icon, not a loss of the weapon fitting.
