Greetings Defenders, and welcome to this month’s QA column: Bugglemania! [Working Title] Today I present to you a fun bug and another silly video. Without further ado, let’s get started on slugging those bugs!
The Squire’s Super Shield
If you enjoyed the recent blog post about the Squire and always dreamt of using two shields at once, then this bug’s for you! Recently, while testing the loot drops on each character, we noticed something a bit odd about the Squire when he switched shields. Instead of swapping out for the old shield, the new one would stack on top of it, doubling the stats! Even better, in a feat of Squire engineering, the shields appeared on top of each other, leading the Squire to carry some ridiculous-looking combinations. Here’s just one of the over-the-top shields donned by our lovable Squire:
Rise of the Ramsters
The Squire bug came up fairly recently, so I already had another thing to share with you guys, just in case we didn’t have a great bug we could get behind. I spent my free time working on something I thought would be funny, something you would all like, so I present to you: Rise of the Ramsters!
Using one of the assets we had in the editor, I placed the skeletal mesh of the ramster onto the wyvern and a couple of other enemies. The results speak for themselves.
So there we have it, a fun bug showing the Squire’s adeptness at shield-building, and the cutest thing to ever attack your core! What did you think of the mesh swap, or the Squire’s ingenuity? What would you guys like to see or learn more about when it comes to QA? Let us know in the comments, where I’ll also clarify how the Squire bug came to be!
