Statues Disappear too quick

I have been having an issue while trying to find artifacts. Some statues will quickly disappear after having been found giving me no time to click on them let alone get any artifacts from them. Others will last a bit longer but not long enough to harvest any artifacts.

Edit:

This seems to only be happening to me in the Herba Jungle.

    That is most likely not a bug, or glitch, but the issue is with how (poorly) that stuff works. Every single artifact is on a universal timer, and all will despawn I think it is every minute(it has been a long time since I done it in Herba). So for example if you happen to say find an artifact 55 seconds after the global despawn it will despawn in 5 seconds, if you find it 5 seconds after the global despawn it will stay around 55 seconds.

    Back when I used to look for artifacts I would have a stopwatch, and watch the time, and look for artifacts till I heard the 4 beeps, and if I was within 20 seconds of the reset I would wait till the respawn timer would lapse till I uncovered them so I would have longer to do what I needed to.

    FWIW it has been an issue pretty much since Iria was added and I doubt they will do anything.

    Correct - for whatever reason, all the statues and chests in the Courcle region are on the same 60 second timer.

    It would still be great if they could fix it by adding 1 minute to each artifact before the timer takes them down, so we could have 1-2 mins to kill monsters for keys/gather whatever we can from the statues. Poorly-designed mechanics might as well be bugs, no one wants them and we don't have to keep them around.

    Like Eralea said, this has been around for a long time and is just something to get used to. I'm an avid explorer and I just get used to it, no matter how irritating it is.
