Enemies teleport when killed, making them unlootable

Frequently when I kill an enemy in Elsweyr, they will disappear and then reappear several feet away, moving in my direction. That looks weird enough, but if they have loot, I cannot loot them, presumably because the game thinks they are in another location.

    Happening in all zones. Happend in a fungal grotto on the final boss as well which was really annoying.

    This has been happening to me for days and it's really bad today. I'm on my Sorcerer and I'll kill something at a distance then it vanishes and reappears at my feet or past me even and then it says I'm out of range to loot it even though I'm standing on it. The only way I can loot is to log out and back in, even reloading doesn't work. Every zone I've been in, all of them this is happening.

    Editing: yeah this is gamebreaking IMO. I can't do anything today, I have to relog constantly. I'll be back to play when this is fixed and not before.

    I'm surprised that they are still there when you log back in. I would have thought it would "reset" the area.

    Most of the time it doesn't reset the area, sometimes though yeah unfortunately it does.

    I can confirm this happens in all zones. I’ve encountered it for the first time yesterday and it’s very annoying when it happens with every third mob killed...
    Is it a sign of overloaded server? My ping was in 60s ms at that time.
    It’s EU PC if it helps.

    It still exists after this patch, changed graphics drivers but it doesn’t change anything.
    Could someone from @Zos look into it please?
    It appeared just few days ago out of nothing and it’s really annoying if not game breaking :-(

    Yeah it's still doing it, the kill teleports to your feet or beyond you then can't be looted. The only way around it is to move up on your target before killing it so it goes nowhere, but for a caster that is less than ideal and not always possible.

    Could we at least get an acknowledgement that you're looking into this ZOS? It's on the game-breaking level.

    Sometimes you can fix it and make the corpse lootable if you dodge-roll near it, no idea why. Normally is lootable after a roll :smile:

    Because ......... erm.............reasons

    Definitely still happening frequently, and never occured prior to last week's patch (5.0.7).

    I have had some success walking to the side of the fallen enemy where he teleported from, turning around, and walking to the edge of the 'hit box' of the loot prompt (in other words, as close to where the foe originally fell as possible). However, terrain affects your ability to select this prompt.....for example, if the corpse is on ground rising above you, it won't work because you cannot establish enough distance.

    As a Necro, it's funny to see all the tetherable corpses sliding forward with their azure light-pillar flags, but hope this bug can be remedied soon.

    Same problem here, mobs "teleport" after death - to me, past me or to Sheogorath knows where!
    It happens in all zones, in dungeons and trials and outdoors. Its gotten really bad the last week or so.
    Sometimes the mob location "fixes" itself if you run out of range and then back.
    But mostly I try to work around it by kiting some other mobs into the kill area and hoping they die close enough to the "actual" body location that the area auto loot can loots them for me. Wow a lot of loot there! Or not depending if it works lol

    Had another session on my Sorcerer being forced to fight in melee range because of this bug, not great I’d say.

    Happening to me all the time on my Stamblade when fighting with a bow from range, I end up with lots of corpses I can't loot.

    I'm doing the same now, running up on stuff and laying down every AOE I have to burn it down. Far from ideal to put it mildly, I'm accruing a big repair bill on my gear very fast.

    All of this is caused by the same bug that results in inaccurate telegraphs and enemies being rendered in places they are not.

    Monday's patch notes said that this problem was fixed, but the fix clearly did not work, as all of these problems--incorrect telegraphs, incorrect positions, and yes, enemies being unlootable because they are in incorrect positions--are still present.

    I've even had kills teleport away from me when I was close. It's like "he was thinking about going over there, so *poof*" and can't loot.

    I've submitted so many in game bug reports I am pretty sure someone is seeing them and just hitting send on the generic "we will pass this onto the development team" before hitting delete.

    I'd go so far to wonder if any bug reports with certain words are going into a developer spam folder...

    Looking from top down helps. Moving behind the corpse and turn around sometimes helps.

    Still a funny bug :)

    Hi
    As a possible work round (which I admint is not always possible), I try to find another live target nearby, lure him close then kill him.
    With any luck he will drop somthing and when you pick it up his loot, you will pick up all lootable stuff in the area including your original target.

    To some extent, I think that this has been happening since launch. At least, the "unreachable" corpse has been around for a while. I suspect that the bug has always been that the corpse is not where it appears to be, so it becomes unable to be looted for "reasons". The bug may be worse, and with added features, since Elsweyr, but I don't think it is new.

    Recently... I notice this often with the Terror Birds. I kill them at a point far away, but the corpse is next to me. I find myself wondering whether that bird was trying to do a charge at me that I stopped before it happened (from my perspective), yet something server side thinks the bird completed the run and died at my feet.
