Tideborn rubber banding issue info

In the 659, 147 area of the Tideborn part of the game world, players can get caught up in a glitch where the game will keep rubberbanding back and forth.

Please try to be careful around this area.

If you are high enough level, you can fly out of it, or teleport out.

If you are run by the ledge near the elder, you can get unstuck.

This has been reported and is being looked into.

    It is also possible, depending on where your character gets stuck, to get out by running along the ledge around the building, towards the Elder.

    Thanks Surtr, this was one of the places I managed to get stuck at with my Psychic earlier. b:victory (I love jumping and running on walls and such when exploring)

    i have a proven work-around for those who can't fly or town teleport


    basically, come to a complete stop, just remove your hands from the keyboard and mouse until your character stops rubber-banding and comes to a rest. once at this point, hit the spacebar to jump straight up, then either click or hit W to move -away- from the building (go towards the cliff). when you reach the highest point of your first jump, hit spacebar again to use your second jump, and continue moving away from the building, to jump off the cliff

    both me and my GF have been caught up in this area a few times, and this technique has proven 100% successful for us. hope it helps you all as well b:victory

    ^I tried that when I got stuck, and rubber banded back to the ground when I jumped up. So it doesn't work all the time.

    A small side-note, I guess.

    Majority of the times, the suggestion about stopping movement, and then jumping, or moving away will work.

    However, i've found from personal experience, it also seems to depend on 'where' you land, or how.

    Just a rough example. Standing on an object like a forge, a rock or something similar, be it in a lowered-altitude, such as an instance, or even at say, Arch forges. Most of these will result in a 'rubberband' effect, simply jumping away after you've stopped moving won't rectify the problem, you have to land on normal terrain.

    On things like mountains, hills, etc., where falling or movement is 'guided', or when you get 'stuck', then it still seems to apply.

    Personal experience only, but i've not actually managed to get myself stuck to the point I can't get out of the area without a Town portal.

    So that's what happened. Huh. Good thing it was my Veno who was there and not my Tideborn, or I'd have been in trouble.

    Good luck on fixing it!

    I think i found a way around the rubber banding... but you need a patience and don't mind window mode. set your screen to windowed instead of full screen and patiently make your way through the area

    This happens when you use the Performance switch (which temporaraliy lowers most of your settings to the minimum to boost frames per second and decrease internet bandwidth). However, if you log out or switch characters with it still on it will save this. You'll have to manually set your settings back again. Remember to tick "Customizations" under the "UI" tab in your settings.

    P.S - This is the wrong thread to post this. b:victory

    Hi ive been stuck for almost 24 hours now. location 654,282. Tried jumping, running, town portal (doesnt even start channeling).
    This is a major bug in the new expansion that needs to get fixed right away.

    Otherwise your character risk getting "kidnapped" by the game and the only solution so far is to hit the delete char button and start all over.. ;(

    By the looks of other posts here it seems this bug can be found at several different places around the new expansion so tread very carefully if you like to explore.

    I have had this problem also on the bottom left island in the expansion. I dunno the coordinates but one of the holes with the misty stuff and a floating rock in it if you jump in does the rubber band glitch... Luckily for me the Town Tele worked and I was able to get out. b:pleased

    ^^ This is what i did when i got stuck a few days ago near the outside wall of cloud temple.
    It is better to remain silent and be thought the fool then to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
