    The DX11 implementation still needs more work.

    This statue has always been black unless you mean this to be sarcastic? Do a search should bring up a ton of posts over the years

    Its 100% improved overall for me with this patch. And I did not do one iota of all those "fixes" thank god.

    Pre-DX11 it looked fine, sort of the like the Firiona statue there to the right. Lantern and everything, colored appropriately.

    I think everyone had different results from that statue. I remember this being posted but others were saying it appeared normal for them. Its always been black for me in every guild hall I have seen.

    May 18, 2014 — The Statue of Altruistic Guardian was (is) infamous for rendering all black no textures

    Sorry yours is black but the fact that they got rid of the grey wash outs is huge so hopefully they won't try to fix one statue and ruin all the progress :)

    I still see black textures everywhere on Test, like this:

    Bummer mine is fine and showed up normal with no grey fillers

    Did you try any of those fixes that have been posted? What does yours look like on live?

    No, it wasn't. Prior to the DX11 rollout, that statue looked perfectly fine on all my accounts.

    The specific issue with this model is the shaders. Try toggling them on and off and (depending on your settings) it should toggle between grey and black.

    Are you using all the highest quality textures? I saw this a lot when the DX11 patch first came out because I was set to use least memory, lowest quality textures.

    This is an old content bug and known issue. The 2.0 Pixel shader for this model renders black.
