    Title: Msitrendur - is only raining over my avatar (rain on overworld?)
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? no
    Details: i teleported to zone into spindlskog (normal), then walked out of spindleskog onto misterndur and it was raining, but there were no clouds in the sky, and it was raining only in the area immediately surrounding my avatar and not in the entire island (is rain supposed to occur on the overworld?). This "aura" of rain follows me as i move around the overworld. Also, while panning the camera, the rain drops shoots sideways. See pictures below. Then i entered into tanglemire, and there was no rain in tanglemire. but when i exited to the overworld (mistrendur) again, the rain re-appeared around my avatar,.

    rain is always drawn locally in just in a cube over your own character and not throughout the whole scene. it's just that, in normal zones, your camera doesn't go far enough out to see its edges (unless you're slewing). if they want to have rain on overworlds (which i like!) they might have to make the box bigger or limit the camera some.

    the rain shooting sideways when the camera pans is likewise not a new phenomenon but is perhaps more noticeable on the overworld.

    here's me slewing in the rain in stinging tree:

    SLEW will break stuff. Rain on cameras is how 99.9% of video games make rain. Rain following you from the zone to the overworld does seem like a bug. Thanks

    Not sure this helps, but i thought i would add it: this is occurring on the live server too.

    I took the galleon from aerie to mistrendur, and when arrived in mistrendur, itis raining on the overworld again (this time live server instead of QA):

    [Need more info] - I am unable to reproduce this one. To the best of my memory, I have never seen it rain on the overworld. By chance, were you using one of the GM Potions? Anything else you can think of that would trigger rain there? I tried one of the Kobold Umbrellas - no luck.

    it does rain on the mistrendur overworld. i've seen it many times. i didn't think that was a bug, but that was just a guess.

    it doesn't rain in spindelskog. i don't think that's a bug either, since it has a special sky. ...so walking out of a dry spindelskog and having it be raining on the overworld is not a bug.

    the first bug i see is that at that scale, with the rain box the size it is, he can see the edges of the box.

    the second is that the clouds did not reflect the rainy state, which may have been a one-off glitch: i've always seen clouds when it rains in mistrendur.

    the third possible one is that it wasn't raining in tanglemire, which doesn't have a special sky. i don't recall if i've ever seen it rain there.

    Almost every time I have logged in since the end of August 2020, it has rained on the misterender overworld (not always the entire time I am logged in tho).
    I was not using GM potion, I was not slewing, and I was not using healing rain.
    It occurred again today.
    I am not really sure what other information to give. there isn't anything I can think of that could trigger this.
