Nevertheless, the launch appears type of buggy and it’s exhausting to inform why points are popping up.

After enjoying round with the brand new system out of beta, we now have a rundown on how one can make it work. Nevertheless, be aware that these options will not be the fix-all for you, although they did assist us.

How do Adventurer Plates and portraits work?

Adventurer Plates are the little Warrior of Gentle enterprise playing cards you may make that show no matter data you need. You’ll be able to entry and set them them up by way of the “character” button after which by deciding on “Adventurer Plate” on the dropdown.

On the plate, you’ll be able to set one snapshot of your character to look by deciding on “edit portrait.” This snapshot will seem as your Adventurer Plate photograph even if you’re not at present that job or carrying that set of armor.

For instance, if my Adventurer Plate is a Purple Mage carrying a raincoat, it should present up as that — even when I’m enjoying as Warrior, or if my Purple Mage has a distinct outfit outfitted.

This isn’t to be confused with portraits, which is offered from the subsequent dropdown choice beneath “Adventurer Plate.” You should use these as “immediate portraits” which is what your celebration members will see if you do multiplayer content material.

Nevertheless, to ensure that your immediate portrait to work, you must be carrying the identical gear within the portrait as you’re within the content material you’re operating, even when you have glamoured over the gear. Should you modified any equips, whether or not its glamour or not, make certain to resave your portrait earlier than operating content material, otherwise you’ll get the default mugshot portrait.

If you’re enjoying because the job represented in your Adventurer Plate, the plate’s portrait, your immediate portrait, and your present equips additionally have to be carrying the identical gear or you’ll get the default mugshot. Whew.

In case your gear doesn’t match up, you need to get a bit error triangle subsequent to the portrait like so:

Why isn’t my immediate portrait working?

The reply is that you simply most likely have mismatched gear you won’t be noticing. The opposite reply is that portraits appear type of buggy, so that you may simply must fiddle with them a bit to make them work.

Strive doing any of the next to repair your concern:

Retake your Adventurer Plate portrait and reserve it. Then resave the matching job immediate portrait for it.

Ensure that your gear set is up to date. (The rotating arrows in your character menu must be grayed out whether it is.) If it wasn’t, replace it and resave your portraits.

If the final time you saved your portraits was earlier than the patch 6.3 replace, resave them.

This will likely sound foolish, however very meticulously examine your gear between your Adventurer Plate portrait and immediate portrait. We had an un-glamoured ring inflicting us issues for ours, which we didn’t even understand was glamoured within the portrait, because it’s not a part of our glamour plate. Yeesh.

You’ll be able to check in case your portrait works by heading into any obligation whereas unsynced. Coming into unsynced will will let you skip the queue, bounce in rapidly, after which go away (when you examine your portrait) with out penalty.

When you’ve got different issues and/or options, be happy to go away them within the feedback to assist different Warriors of Gentle throughout these making an attempt occasions.
