There was a glitched shard and by going into said shard and then swapping shards it desynced me and left a clone.
Ah bummer, was hoping the AFK mechanic I tossed in earlier would at least clean up the clones as a temporary solution while we looked into the real issue. But for some reason the clones are being stubborn when trying to log out. I took an axe to those shards again for now.
that afk mechanic does not detect player head movement which is annoying, shard pkp is broken at least for me
