What the Fudge (But I Didn't Say Fudge)!

I have found an annoying bug that scares the hell out of me every time. I log into the game and the character screen loads, as I scroll thru my characters everything looks normal until I get to my Main. And there he stands wearing nothing but his Argent Tourney Tabard. My heart sinks as I log into him to find everything intact. I have NOT been hacked. This bug alone makes me want to buy an authenticator. anyone else have this problem?

  1. I'm not sure when this started. Either since last patch or since playing around with the character viewer and poses on the armory 3D character model. Either way its sooo damn annoying and scarey.

  2. Never had this happen, though sometimes I notice that my characters will have their weapons drawn sometimes, and other times not. You should get an authenticator anyway. You run a blog talking about how much money you have. Even if you didn't you'd be at risk.

    My account got hacked a couple years ago, and I'm still not sure how it happened. I'm very computer saavy (have been playing computer games and tinkering with PC's since I was like 7 - I'm 32 now), don't hang around on bad "neighborhoods" on the web, don't do torrents or file sharing or anything, nor do I let anybody use my computer but myself. Never played wow on any other machine but my own, change my password regularly, and have tricky passwords that include numbers and symbols, etc. And I got hacked. So if it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone.

    Since I got my authenticator shortly after that incidence it's been smooth sailing. $15 is worth the peace of mind.

  4. I have a character sitting on my selection screen completely naked as well. It was rather unnerving when i first saw it.

    But, Pretty much what Marth said. There is no reason not to have one. They are free if you have one of those phones but even if you don't its only $6.50. http://us.blizzard.com/store/details.xml?id=1100000822

  5. I dreaded getting an authenticator, but it was a requirement for being an officer in my guild -- and a good requirement for anyone who has access to a guild bank. As it turns out, it's really not cumbersome at all, which is what I feared.

    I have an iPhone, so it was free for me, and the worst case is that I have to walk back upstairs for my phone before I can login. Well worth the peace of mind.

  6. It happens from time to time to my Warrior but none of my others.
