I don't recall seeing a topic on this, but I may have totally overlooked it.

Am I the only one that seems to be having this issue? I go to attack a mob, or even in the middle of battle, out of no where I can no longer attack. I've had it kick back in 10 seconds later where I could attack again, and have had to also disengage and reengage the mob. Just now it got me killed as I was trying to do a leve (which didn't matter as the game crashed right after so I failed anyways).

This also brings up the fact that I REALLY hope they adjust the "disconnect = fail" system because I've lost atleast 4 guildleves because of the game crashing (even had a few BSOD that only occur when I play the game). I'm hoping retail build is more stable, though I am going the ps3 route anyways.

Just discourages me a little seeing as how I've also lost two levels because of my DSL resetting. That makes 6 leves I've lost from things out of my control. I really wanted that halfmask from the leve too :/.

Nearly died to this twice this morning to that. Appears to be a new bug since last patch.

Wish I could get cable, but sadly I live out in the middle of no where and the cable company isn't too quick on expanding their services. I do plan on trying to move in the spring, then I should be able to get it. Plus the cable service is much faster for the same price.

Actually Ive had this happen several times since day one of open beta. I figured It was only on my side because people made a thread about everything else about the game. Looks to be a bug thats going on unnoticed though :O!

sounds like lag to me. I was having the same issue until i switched servers and figured out how the stamina bar works :P Don't spam attacks. Queue up an attack and the stam bar is blue, when it's yellow you can queue another... won't get the message that way. took me 2 days to figure out the stamina bar ; ;

That usually happens to me when I try to attack a mob meant for someone elses lev. There are stumbling funguar in the black shroud that you can't attack unless you are doing that lev. I was trying to grind my lvl a little bit and tried attacking them and I could attack them no matter what I did. Or people could be right and this could be a bug. I assumed it was the former idea. Although, I also know that mobs don't appear to other players until you attack them if they are lev specific.

It's been a problem for quite a while now. You usually can "fix" it by switching to passive and back to active mode. Didn't find a surefire way to reproduce it yet. It's not caused by connctivity-issues.

PS: DSL is just fine for gaming, unless the phone-lines in your area are in need of replacement/maintenance or you live too far from the phone company's server servicing your connection.

I have had this bug happen a few times once it stayed threw two deaths a few zones and many active / passive mode swaps. I found that changing my main wepon to a different class then back again fixed the issue when it got that bad. Oh it also persisted threw a log out.

I've had that issue several times. In my case it usually seems to happen in a party which makes it doubly annoying for me because I'm doing everything I can to contribute and all my party members see is me standing there like a dunce doing nothing. I expect it's one of those things that will get worked out over time.

I've found it only says this when you have 2 skills queued. You cant queue any more than 2 skills. And if you are absolutely low on stamina and have 2 skills queued, you're going to end up waiting a good 5-10 seconds before it stops saying that.

My advice: stop button mashing and actually watch your stamina bar. This isnt wow.

When it happens at the very beginning of a fight when all you've done is queued your first attack on the mob your party has already engaged, it's not because you're out of stamina.

I can confirm this. It's an entirely random occurrence from what I've seen, and I'm patient with my clicks. Sometimes I get the error on my very first attack on a target, after only pressing "1" once. After I run around in circles like a spaz and mash buttons, it seems to go away all on its own after about 15 seconds.

It's annoying, but I have a feeling that SE will solve this one soon enough. It's only a recent issue.
