Dud wisps

I've noticed that when I come out of an area or tower, after the "Loading..." screen, oftentimes the first wisp I try to pick up won't register. This happens on both my characters. I haven't noticed any packet loss or ping spikes or anything of the sort when that occurs. Has anyone else noticed the "Dud wisps" ? Or is it just me? :P

I'm in Marleybone right now (just got there), and I'm noticing it too. It has happened when I come out of bosses' fights and even when I'm walking the rooftops too. Didn't run into this until Marleybone. It's both the red and blue wisps too.
I think I'll send a bug report and see if they know about it...

You are not alone. I have run through the same wisp wondering how come it doesn't register and disappear over and over again. I finally give up and when I run about 10 feet in front of it attaches to me like static cling.

I can only guess that "objects in the game may appear closer (or in this case, further) than you expect".

This happens to me frequently. I always contributed it to lag.

i've had this happen too the best thing to do is go through it and then go to another one pick it up then go back to the one that didn't register and you can pick it up then
