So i just bought Gray Helix saberstaff and when i draw the weapon it looks ok after few strikes and hits lower part of lightsaber disappears.
This is a bug because it happens to all of my friends who have this light saber also other people see the same as i do.

Screenshots:

I did not make screenshots but I confirm this saber is bugged.

When you just draw it it shows both blades properly, but during fights the "lower" one disappears.

I wonder whether it could be due to the length of the hilt itself - making the engine unable to display the blade correctly because of perspective.

Also when not used, it sticks out far from the body - it's not placed parallel as any other saber does.
Dark side is a pathway to many abilities, some consider to be unnatural.

Its the same problem as the CC sabers. Bug has been around a while. Dev's have posted on it a few times and say "just sheath & re-draw your saber", which is not a fix at all but simply a method to get the second blade & effect to show. Which works... until you use it again.
Cheers!

Seems every new 'special' double blader they bring out... they break. Same bug.

Devastator was fixed; but~ they've still yet to fix Warmaster from Cartel packs. Someone's not learned their coding like they should in the office!

Not only does the blade disappear but the gree effect too.
When lower part disappears it becomes normal one side bladed saber because gree efect isn't there either.

When it first happened to me I felt like Darth Maul when he fought Qui Gon, but with the skill animations it looks plain ridiculous.

It's not just the double bladed

If you pull the single blade via the Z key it has the gree effect but if pulled during combat or ability the effect disappears and it just looks like normal saber

I can confirm this, all sabers with cool effects/animations are bugged such as the Tythonian, Zoist etc...
