Has anyone else run into the problem of not being able to see the monsters? I first ran into this in the Cave of Solitude and then again in Kishibe Village. I can't see any monsters, but they still see me and drag me into fights. I can't even click on them!
YES! In Kishebi Village, right? Those elementals are so annoying! It's gotta be a glitch. You can't even see them walking the streets! One of my friends couldn't see them and he ended up in a battle with one. The problem is, they do appear after a while but you can't hit them. My suggestion is using a minion if you have one.
Most of us by now can see when an area is 'too quiet'....these areas are the lair of the invisible monsters. If you need them for a quest, just jump into this region, and they will find you. If you just need to pass by on the way to something else, most of the time you can get by on the 'sidewalks'. If for some reason you can't avoid, it might be a good time to visit other characters in your cast'o'characters. :)
I wouldn't say it's unplayable you just have to fight them. That's what this game is all about right? It's not fair to expect retribution for a problem that they are obviously working on.
