    I have noticed this a few times since the last patch, in different locations fighting different mobs.

    I use the classic client, often running multiple clients. What I have noticed is that in some instances of the client, the mob health bar disappears when the mob invisibles rather than just being greyed out.

    First time I noticed it:
    Lady M - Client 1 with a disco tamer had no health bar issues, client 2 with a pure mage the bar disappeared each time she invised.
    Second time I noticed it:
    Medussa - Client 1 with a sampire had no health bar issues, client 2 was the disco tamer mentioned above the health bar disappeared each time she invised.
    Third time I noticed it:
    Lady M - Client 1 with the disco tamer had no health bar issues, Client 2 with an archer had no health bar issues, client 3 with the pure mage the health bar disappeared each time she invised.

    I have not experienced this while playing a single client, though I am also not sure I routinely fight mobs who utilize the invis spell regularly with a single client.

    There is a familiar aspect to this bug, my husband just recalled with his GD. The pet's lifebar disappeared when he recalled. CC client. We've seen that bug before.

    Health bars also disappear when going through moongates. This is a real pain if you have pets or are in a party, since you have to stop to reestablish the health bars each time you invis or go thru a gate.

    I know Bleak said the classic client health bar issues will be fixed with the next patch. However, I just wanted to note that in the classic client, in addition to pet's having their bars disappear when you recall with them, you SOMETIMES also lose an animal's bar when it goes from being wild to being tamed. When releasing a tamed pet, though, its bar seems to stay on screen just fine. And if it the animal's bar was blue before the animal was released, it changes its color to the normal "gray" of a wild animal just fine without the bar disappearing from the screen.

    On Mizuho tonight, bars would disappear when an animal was tamed. On Balhae, no disappearing bars while taming the same types of animals and in the same location as on Mizuho. And I'm pretty sure that when I was taming earlier in the day on some North American shards and also on Europa, bars were not disappear when something was tamed. At least I don't remember it happening consistently. When I switched from Mizuho to Balhae, I did not close the classic client, but did switch between accounts and, obviously, between shards. So maybe the disappearing bars are an account-related setting? I also noticed on Mizuho earlier tonight that recall spell wasn't always taking my character anywhere, so maybe there's also a shard issue or connection issue too.

    Little more about this bug, its seen alot more in pvp, it causes the bars youve pulled to disapear when the person whos bar you have has done the folloring:

    Ran off your screen
    Went through a teleporter
    Went over a dungeon serverline

    it usually takes about 1-2mins of pvping after pulling 10 bars, to have none left

    Per the latest update to Publish 76 here: "Fixed the issue with Health Bars disappearing"

    Can anyone on Origin confirm that this has been fixed?
