    Looking into this, I see you are running a 2nd gen i5 with a GTX950 (2GB RAM).

    So a few questions: Have you tried this on a different rig (if available)? The mixture of 2nd gen/i5 and 2GB GPU will certainly have limitations. Are you running on an SSD?
    (and what are the video options currently set to?)

    We haven't been able to duplicate this on our accounts, however I can certainly impersonate you and see if there is something going on when logged in as you.

    I replaced with another display card and having the same result. Does it relate to any in-game graphical settings?

    I am running on an SSD too.

    @Chiasma Do you have GPU Occlusion turned on? Try turning it off.

    OK -- I can verify this bug, as I saw similar behavior. This appears to be an issue with GPU Occlusion and the new as well as previous Tiki statues. I noticed it while panning the camera controller to various angles and distances.
