Hydra - 2 years & still here

I was wondering, if after these two years, could you please finally fix the issue with the Hydra in Aquila? When it was first released, it took me around five tries in the Hydra battle, for the Ebon head to stop glitching out. The Ebon head will get hit the first round, you wait for it to respawn, and when it finally does- it breaks. The Ebon head does not have a hit box so you can attack it, nor does it move or attack any other players - it is just there.

I am sorry to sound like a narc, I know your company is majorly busy, but it just seems a little extreme - that a major bug like this hasn't been fixed in the past two years, and your only major update in those two years is a world that has been in the files for a long time.

Please fix the Hydra glitch

-Sincerely ; every single one of your players that has been complaining about this for the past two years.

Of my six pirates only one experienced this glitch, however 100s of reports of this glitch proves beyond doubt that its real and in the game, and not the fault of the player's computer.

And some of us get it sometimes but not others. It's a known bug; it should be fixed.

My entire (full) team got this glitch at the same time, I highly doubt that all four of our computers got the same issue at the same time?

No this is still a problem, my computer is up to date and everything sometimes when i am bored I go and re-do boss battles and I happened to do the Hydra and the Ebon head just left for good.

Anyone can encounter this bug, the issue is in the battle itself.

I know that hydra refuse to be unglitched.

It won the most award for the most annoying boss in pirates, for that infamous glitch.

A really long time ago when I noticed this problem, it only glitched when I used traps. I posted something about it ,but I got no replies.

I just ran this battle a few hours ago out of curiosity, and when Ebon popped up for round two I was unable to target him. I was using melee companions, no traps.

Did you use big guns? When I fought hydra it glitched a lot on me but only when I used traps maybe its something else, like maybe if it takes too much damage then it hides longer but in a glitchy way? I do know that it hides based on the general area of its health. It might be something complicated like if you assassin strike it past its first hide point but when bleeding is calculated it reaches the second checkpoint?

Also, I just realized something, when you can't target him you still see him in the background just like the glitch that sometimes happened in team groups in moo tower maybe it has something to do with that.

um only time I ever experienced this is when a friend begged me to port.. when it is glitching, ebon can be damaged by jobu kiss and other types of square hits that hit multiple enemies in an area.. otherwise I usually just solo it.. less than 20 minutes on my swash zero glitching that way, no clue why it never glitches when I solo, but its one I usually farm with my ports off.. hope this helps you..

Please, please look into this, hydra battle is very very bugged, nearly impossible to complete anymore, battle is bugged nearly every time i enter it.

Chiming in on this... for what it's worth, two times in, two times glitched as of this AM. This is not counting the numerous tries before the update. After several fails prior to the update I decided to abandon the quest for a while in the hope that the new update would address the issue. Post update - same deal.
I'll keep trying KI but this is disappointing!
