Interact Prompts not appearing

When my wizard approaches a NPC/chest/dungeon/etc the Interact Prompt does not appear. This isn't a major problem until you want to use the team-up feature.(the button for which is in said prompt) I have read every guide I can find and every list of shortcut commands and cant find a way to 'toggle' these prompts. Am I missing something obvious or do I need to seek help from Kingsilse?

I've had this happen to me a couple times. It usually fixes itself by just logging out to the wizard select screen and going back in. If that doesn't fix it then quitting and restarting the game has always fixed it for me.

I'm not sure about a toggle key for these. But here are two things you might want to check.

When you are in the game, press "esc" to see your game options.

At the 4th Tab on the top (the first joystick), click on that and check your options. In particular, check:

NPC Chatter - On
Tutorial Tips - All

And at the 5th Tab on the top (the second joystick), click on that and again, check your options, especially:

Dungeon Warnings - Yes

Hope this helps.

Sometimes, the visible prompt just doesn't appear. Try clicking on whatever you need to interact with anyways. This has worked for me a couple times but I'm not sure if it's the same glitch.
