    Since it seems that all npcs and mobs show some identifying name over their heads it seems incorrect that the Mage of Mystery in Superstition Canyon doesn't. Even when I toggle the names with N there is never any identifying name over the mages head. I can determine his name by shift clicking to target him. I can see his name in the chat box when he does some idle chat without entering a chat mode with me. But, I think there should be a name over his head like all of the other npcs.

    @Kelly O'Shay I checked the NPCs you mentioned and they seem to be set up correctly to me. Could it be possible you accidentally turned off display names? Pressing "N" on your keyboard will toggle display names... maybe you pressed it by accident?

    @Sannio As you can see in the movie clip, I toggled N on and off several times to verify that it was not the issue. The mage of mystery remains nameless over his avatar.
    And, as you can see in the text above, I already said I tried to make his name show by using the N key.

    @Sannio I went back into QA to verify the bug. She (Brittany Alleys Town Crier) still doesnt have a name over her head in patch 778.

    I went back to Superstition to verify the Mage of Mystery mystery. This time, I walked about a bit verifying that the squirrel, squirrel corpse and arctic wolves all were displaying a name over their head. This verifys that I had toggled the N key to the correct toggle.

    Then I viewed the Mage of Mystery. He had no name over his head. But, when I tried to shift click on him to bring him up as a soft target, the game instead took me into conversation mode for some reason. I exited the conversation mode and voila!! The Mage of Mystery now has a name over his head.

    Perhaps this new information will assist your programmers in fixing this bug.

    Here is a short video clip showing what I have described:

    I had a similar experience. In my editor, everyone works fine, but on the live server those NPCs don't display anything overhead until I've learned their names. I forwarded these name bugs to our UI specialist and he'll get to the bottom of things!
