During a purge, we got a wave as normal, killed all the npc’s we could see and expected the ‘the bandits are regrouping’ message
We waited 5 minutes or so, but the message never came. At about 5 minutes after, we heard the tone that usually accompanies the message, but no message was shown.
At that point I started hearing arrows being shot, and all of the pets around the front of my newly built base went nuts acting like they were attacking an enemy.
There were 12 to 15 pets all focused on one spot by my base, apparently attacking air. I couldn’t see an npc there, and neither could my friend but all the pets in the area were acting like there was an enemy. In addition I could actually SEE arrows landing and hitting my pets. There were ripples in the air like something hitting a forcefield and I saw arrows hitting the ground and my pets.
We tried and tried to find the npc shooting, but there was nothing to be seen.
Part way through we heard an npc from somewhere at the front of my base say the usual ‘pokey, pokey mate’, and the shouted phrase about picking the wrong fight.
Every indication was that there were 2 or more npcs there and my pets were attacking them but we couldn’t see anything and couldn’t hit anything. After about 20 minutes of frantically trying to pull my pets away from the area it all stopped. A couple of minutes later it said the bandits had been defeated.
This whole scenario repeated in the next purge the following day, with the exact same events
I’ve lost a rhino, 2 tigers and a shaleback to “invisible” enemies that I couldn’t attack
Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:
- Wait for Purge
- Fight purge
It’s really hard to give more steps than that. It’s occurred during the past two purge battles.
