Today while trying to spot a Ghost Penguin on a ledge at the top of the pathway, to the left of Death Plateau a Ghost Penguin was on the other side of a rock and players were unable to reach him to spot him for this D&D, that's a hell of a lot of points to miss out on. And I feel this needs to change. The Ghost Penguin should have been able to be reached and spotted from where he was.

This is the ledge, the penguin was on the left side of the rock:



This is a larger view of the area:



I never thought about reporting it in-game and even if I did, I don't believe I would have been able to explain exactly where the penguin was. In the forums, I am able to show a picture so there is no confusion.

It happens.

You sometimes see the ghost penguin so far out over the sea that it can't be spotted, too.

Just live with it. It's not meant to be easy.

It walks through things and randomly teleports around.
It's not uncommon for it to be somewhere you can't spot it.
That's not a bug.
It's a questionable design decision.

Implings are the same as well. They fly over cliffs or out to sea.

You can either wait for it to walk to an accessible location, or hop to another world.

No one's missing out on anything, the ghost is gonna spawn somewhere else in like 10 mins.

Or use the bind spell if you see the impling is going someplace you can't reach. I believe it still works on npc's.

I actually spied the penguin in question, but others missed out because of where it walked. But it wasn't somewhere hard at all, that's the thing I am getting at. It was a small rock if you climbed up onto the ledge the rock was a hell of a lot smaller than you and in this situation, you should have been able to spy it. If they want to make it 'hard' put a rock there that's taller than us, make it realistic as this bloody wasn't at all. It was rather pathetic that we couldn't spy it over a small rock under half the size of us.
