if you're killing quest mobs, he cant attack them if he's not also doing the quest.
he can join your quests by standing close to aetheryte crystal when you start it, and accepting it.

their was a minor glitch in beta though I'm sure they fixed it. if his weapon is drawn and he cannot attack the target and he IS doing the same quest, then try going passive then active again or logging out/back in. However more than likely he is just not participating in your current leve.

I've had that exact same issue a few times. I've been killed twice already by mobs who were beating down on me and wouldn't let me do anything to them stating target engaged or something.

It's happened a few times to me so far while solo...I get the 1st attack in and then on the 2nd it says the mob is "already engaged" ... well no ****! Lemme finish killin' it! = P
But sometimes when I tried the 3rd attack it went away, back to normal. Other times it would repeatedly say that when I tried to attack. When that happened, I totally disengaged back to passive mode as fast as I could and then attacked...then it went back to normal. Try that if you're having trouble...though of course we shouldn't have to do that in the 1st place...

Not sure about party issues of the same kind...

The 'target already engaged' message is about to make me stop playing until this is fixed. My frustration is getting to a point where the game isn't fun.

Three in a row. Three. Theres already plenty of competition when hunting. So I finally find a mob and smack it once, then I can no longer attack it. MMMk. So I disengage, lose a good bit of health to this wtf moment, then try again. Killed the first mob, and it immediately happens again on the 2nd. So I've been hunting for about 45 min, and managed to kill one mob.

So now I take the time to vent here, and the game crashes in the background. Win.

I've actually found that you dont need to go passive to fix this, just click the screen to untarget, then retarget and you should be good to go, you can stay in attack mode the entire time.

I have experienced this quite a bit, and from what I can tell it occurs when the monster is dead server side, but does not appear to be dead client side. For instance, whenever my girlfriend starts casting a big nuke on a monster (which will kill it), I will instantly get the "target already engaged" problem. Then the monster dies after the info finally gets to my client.

This might not be the only time when this bug appears though. I think it will go away in some cases when there is less server lag - but in other cases it will need a software fix.

I have had this issue NUMEROUS times in close/open beta and last night in retail.
Ive found the best way to get around it is soon as you see the "mob already engaged" go into passive mode and it will turn from purple name (someone else's target [even though its yours]) to white name and you can begin attacking again and name should go red (your engaged target).

Yeah me and my girlfriend have had these problems. While we're in party and i engage an enemy, she gets the "Target is already engaged" when she tries to attack it. It is a pretty annoying glitch, hope they fix it soon.

Also, she has had the same problem as mentioned before when solo'ing. She'd get the first attack in then it tells her its already engaged when she tries a second attack. o.O

Same thing happened to me and my boyfriend last night in Party mode and solo. We engaged a firefly, hit it a couple of times and then both of us got the "target is already engaged" message and got our butts handed to us by a stupid bug. Disengaging and re-engaging did not work for either of us. I'm getting to the point as well where until it gets fixed, I'm too frustrated to play.
