Is anyone else having this glitch?Follow

So lately to my frustration I've been getting a pretty nasty glitch on summoner where I will summon a pet and the game won't recognize that I have one out, even though I clearly do. The game won't let me use any pet commands (not even release), so I have to either zone out or find a way to kill my pet. x.x;

It seems to have only happened to me in abyssea zones, but that might just be a fluke.

Has anyone else come across this problem? It's been happening to me since pre-update, but it seems to be occuring even more now.

Had that happen once, awhile ago, when I summoned Leviathan. I think I also tried summoning since I couldn't do anything and it wouldn't let me, and I also couldn't use pet commands. And no, it wasn't amnesia hah. I've also had my pet die (life bar gone and everything) and couldn't resummon for a bit "Annalise already has a pet". Also weird, though it's rare I see it.

I've gotten this glitch when playing summoner inside abyssea too. Someone told me to try manually swapping gear and see if that fixes it and so I clicked my body off and on and sure enough after that the bug fixed itself. I don't know what caused it but I've gotten it inside walk of echoes too. I haven't seen the bug elsewhere but I haven't gotten to use my smn much outside abyssea yet so it may still exist in the old world as well. At any rate I don't know if it will always fix the bug, but I've had good fortune with manually performing a gear swap so far. I usually release my pet and resummon after that just in case, but it's very rare and I haven't seen it enough to even guess what causes the lock up.

Hmm I feel like I may have tried that before, but now I don't really remember haha... Either way, I'll try it out the next time this happens to me.

I have a funny feeling that it has to do with my PC, because everytime I've experienced this glitch I've been in a large group of people, and generally avatars or confluxes are the only things that makes my game lag a bit. Are you playing on PC as well?

You know, it is kind of funny but I have experienced a glitch in Abyssea that is the direct opposite of your own.
When I was soloing Aggressor Antilon, I faced with an issue in which, after my avatar died, I couldn't summon a pet for 2-3 seconds rather than immediatly after its death.

I don't know what causes this but it was a pain, it almost got me killed thrice during that fight X.x

I had this problem some years ago. What I did was that I rested for mp, then would the game always say that I couldn't rest with a avatar outside. And then did the game let me command mine avatar. I dunno if this will fix your problem, but this worked for me before.

I've had this happen several times recently too. I go to hit Assault or BP and it says invalid command or something like that. Then I hit Ctrl+B to bring up the pet command menu and it's empty.

I've generally been able to fix this by hitting Esc to de-select current target, then targeting it again. After doing that, the commands will be back again.

Just wanted to say, I'm glad I came here and posted a thread about this problem, because Melphina's solution seemed to have worked for me. ^^ Saved my **** during a linkshell Rani run when we were having an emergency kiting situation... :x

I'm going to make another report of this problem through the website, hopefully SE will fix it eventually. If others could make the report too it might help push them forward, maybe. ^^;

But anyways, thanks again for the replies; helped me out when I needed it. XD
