Enemies teleport when killed, making them unlootable

    PC NA (non Steam) here. I've been having this same problem since Elsweyr went live. All zones, all characters. Getting tired of walking away from yellow boss corpses that I cannot loot. I'm also frustrated at what appears to be a lack of acknowledgement of the problem, much less any update on a fix. * sad panda *

    PC-NA on Steam also. I've been having the looting and enemies die standing bug for a while. Last night, I saw my first few teleports, which turned into a constant before I logged off. If I killed anything, one of the group would teleport. Weirdly, I have better luck looting teleported enemies than the ones who stay put :D

    Honestly...it has been THREE weeks since this was reported. This is a game breaker. Needs to be fixed. Just had 6 critters in a row do this to me. Logged out as it is not worth it to play this game in the state it is currently in. Will check in if they do a patch and if it fixes fine I will play if not then giving all the stuff to wife and not playing again.

    This is the bug report thread and its been up long enough to warrant a ZoS response, it's not like its a tiny bug only affecting a specific place in the game, and ignoring it and releasing more new content does not make a difference , its in new content too This is a bug involving basic core gameplay and it happens randomly everywhere even with bosses.

    I am pretty sure they are aware of it so the only conclusion must be they have been told not to respond. GG ZoS what's the point of reporting bugs if they are completely ignored.

    We will never understand the mysteries of what they choose to respond to, and what they choose not to. In the spirit of Douglas Adams, I am sure that as soon as we figure it out, they will implement a new, and more unfathomable, policy. :smiley:

    Seriously, are you going to fix this? Almost every enemy teleports after being killed now. You strike the killing blow, they freeze for a few seconds, then appear at your feet... unlootable.

    I log in, this happens on the first kill, I log out. Thankfully I have FFXIV Shadowbringers to play until you fix this.

    It is very frustrating.
    RNG as to whether I get loot or not after a fight.
    After I beat a creature and it glows to loot it, I just go back and forth over the body slamming the key to loot and keep getting error messages that it's not in range.

    I reported this bug with video but seems like all /feedback /bug messages are going nowhere... At least moderators have to confirm, and give us time-frame for the fix (just like any other company would do)

    I'm still having this issue as well. I'm to the point where I don't even bother to go back to try and loot it or aggro something else to see if it's lootable so I can loot the original. I don't have time to mess with it and it's just frustrating and a waste of time.

    Another patch and another time it’s been ignored so I’m also switching my focus to another game for time being until Zoe will find their bearings.

    Anyone want to weigh in on this? Seriously anyone. Just a note to say yes we are aware of this & are looking into it, please be patient.

    You know the bog standard response you tote out to shut us players up...

    This has been going on for weeks - really began to notice it after Elsweyr released but it happens in all play areas. And it seems to be happening more and more frequently. Several maintenance patches later and it is still going on. It is very disruptive to game-play and it is well past time that this was fixed ZOS!!

    Yeah, and ZOS silence is very annoying on this subject. I always attribute this to "we know about it but are not anywhere close to a fix, although we plan to get one when we get a moment, unless something else comes ... oooh .... donuts!"

    [snip] @ZOS, You know this is a bug. It is on all servers across all platforms, you could at the least say something. I know the few on the forums are just ignored or overlooked. [snip]

    PTS for Update 23 should be this coming Monday, and then the usual PTS cycle is 5 weeks. So, yea, mid-August sounds about right.

    If you cant loot the final boss of a trial, relogging fixes it, but its very annoying

    Going to the Point Of Death and repeatedly clicking E (or whatever your loot button is) until you get to the actual body usually works as well.

    Keep in mind, I said "usually". Results may vary.

    As much as I hate to say it I agree with this because the desync/positioning issue is effecting way more than just loot.
