I can't access to the media on the links.
I just tested this again and my one handed axe passed through the tree about 4 times in a row. There's definitely a problem.For a long time now I've been suspicious that hit detection isn't working 10% of the time.
Every now and then it feels like my weapon is just passing straight through enemies and their mounts.
So after one battle I got so frustrated I just, repetitively started hitting a tree. All sorts of angles. And low and behold, every 7th or 10th stroke, my weapon would go straight through the tree.
I imagine this should be testable.
