This is reminiscent of the glitch which occurred when the legendary bow and bracers were first launched. I assume if it is a recurrence of the same issue they will sort it out with the forthcoming update.
Edit: I have tested this glitch now a number of times in both PvP and PvE. This does seem to be the same glitch that occurred last year.
@Ludia_Developers, I suggest correcting this issue either within or prior to the forthcoming major update. I suspect most players are in agreement the recurrence of this glitch has engendered a farcically unfavorable impact on play.
