Hello! it's been a while, since playing this character, from time to time i get an invisible and untargettable thing attacking me, checking the combat log shows it's a skeletal minion, it attacks me for a bit, generally around a minute or so, and then stops for a while, no explanation given, it's not something visible around me or targettable like invisible stalkers are instead, and i have no clue what the reason is, it happens even after restarting the game and it's been happening for at least a couple of months, in this character i always play with a friend of mine that plays a cleric, is this something i am missing, or a bug?

I had that happen this morning in Borderlands - my hire was swinging away at something invisible. So I ran over and swung in the same vicinity and killed a bugbear. There was no body.. it stayed invis.. weird stuff.

Where does this happen? Does it stop if you switch areas? Very interesting situation...

it happens in different quests, and in some wilderness areas as well, it's not something that keep happening constantly, just from time to time, randomly
And it's not a case of a random mod of the area bein invisible, it happens only to me, to my friend it doesn't, and it's always the same skeletal minion

I can do things others can't...
Did you by chance have a Palemaster join you in party at one point and the Palemaster had assigned their Skeleton Minion to defend you?

Just chiming in to say this happens to me sometimes, as well. I mostly run a FVS Inquis, and usually solo. Happened to me for the first time in Invitation to Dinner, so I assumed it was a Barovian surprise I wasn't aware of, but it has since happened in many other quests, as well. Invisible, untargetable enemy. Skeletal minion in the combat log. No matter how hard I try, I can't shoot it. Hasn't happened in a week or so, but it was maybe 1 in 5 quests for a while, there. He'd show up (so to speak), attack me for a couple minutes, then disappear... some more.

Have you been summoning a lich in game?
Never in my life. Only thing I ever summon is a dog or hireling for pulling levers, after which they are promptly dismissed.
Running colors of the queen? (If there's some new effect added)
Usually, yes, until I swap to doubleshot at 15 or so. That does seem to line up with when it stopped, though I can't be exactly sure. However, it hasn't happened at all while in epic levels with Shiradi, and Double Rainbow is meant to have the same effects.

Now that I know this is something that occasionally happens to at least one other person, I'll have to pay more attention if it happens again.

colors of the queen

Thinking this is a bug, that effects other quests, as this morning before the patch, i was running Epic Saltmarsh, and in the big cricodile one, i had an invisible Sahuagin attack me over and over, i couldn't see him, but If i cast AOE spells near him he just saved, so I ignored him, and kept doing the quests, I do this quest every few days, and never had this issue before.

small update, my friend cleric used destroy undead, and killed the undead minions (i say minions because in the chat he destroyed 2)in that moment, even if the problem keep happening. Even when my spirit blasts don't hit anything
