    I have two theories about the origin of the bug. The first one is that putting your hood on makes that appear. The second one is that basim’s outfit or maybe putting your hood while wearing It causes that. Probably because they have changed the movements Eivor did with the hood, copying the ones we can see in altair’s outfit. I Hope this helps someone.?
