    Default Mysterious floating banjo

    Title says it all. Have any of you seen a floating weird little guitar (banjo, lute) type thing just randomly in the air or underwater?

    Me and my friend both have screen shots of it in different places.

    Weird man

    OOOooooOOoo

    I have seen the same thing, although throughout Telara I have seen a floating trumpet of some sorts (similar to the one that my bard plays). However, upon returning to the location today to take a screenshot that I specifically remembered one being present, it is no longer there? Something fishy is going on, I have never noticed these in the past and I have played since beta.

    Floating bard instruments across Telara = bard changes coming? :P

    Apparently they're markers put in by the devs.

    We're not supposed to see them but it's becoming quite frequent that we do

    I always notice a floating stein floating right off the ledge in library, defiant side.

    I've noticed this too, though the underwater one made me laugh. I guess many bards have died...

    Those bards need to be more responsible and stop losing their instruments. How are they supposed to heal/dps by the power of metal without their Les Paul banjos?!

    I've been noticing a few of these myself though to begin with I thought it was an arm! Found one floating in mid air just off the cliffs behind the PvP tent in Sanctum.

    Same here. I believe it was a broom I found floating above a rock on top of Laterns Hook in Droughtlands. I found it later again when moving from the position and towards Freemarch. Same broom and about same height above the ground.

    I know what it is!

    I've noticed that the bard in sanctum is playing on air, he's not got a visible banjo out. Obviously he must have lost it! We should bring it back to him.

    No, that dude's just an air lute virtuoso.
    If I had something clever to say, it would have been in the post.

    Clearly this is Trion giving us subtle hints to prepare ourselves for what's coming in...

    Patch 1.10: Battle of the Bards!

    Where every character of all races/classes/souls can learn the musical instrument-playing abilities that were once secret only to the Bards of Telara. And of course the Defiant and Guardians have to decide who has the better group of bards.

    Haha, don't know why but it made me laugh!

    I've seen a full stance filled with boots, a few swords and an armor outside of Vestige, by a rock in the middle of the nature close to the road. The funny thing is that it was actually physically there aswell as you could not walk through it.
    I was quite shocked and asked a friend to come over to my location (I did not want to tell why) and the first thing she said when she saw me was "Why is there a stance with armor on it here?"

    Very odd and the GM was just as shocked

    Seen the floating banjo a lot on the drop down from the Defiant side of Codex if you cross the bridge. I didn't question or mention the floating thing.
    Better PvP over the horizon! Just some random fun games to always update.
