    I just noticed this morning after not spending any time farming bane dragons for a few days (not since the last publish I don't think), that the a.i. for the red hell hounds that spawn around the bane dragon in The Abyss is broken. Basically they won't attack you unless you attack them.

    It reminds me of the way The Baracoon champion is extremely non-aggressive (I don't know about the other champs). This might be indicative of a larger problem with the a.i. code. If it is intentional please rethink the decision, the game is already easy enough without filling up what should be challenging pvm locations with training dummies.

    Maybe that's it. My tamer is still positive to the Bane. Maybe that's why they aren't attacking him. But I know it wasn't like that before pub 67. I'm talking about the hell hounds in The Abyss here (edited the OP to make that clear).

    So, it's actually a step forwards in AI. I hope they keep making these steps.

    It's as it should have been from the start no?

    Well, maybe yes, and maybe no. As I see it the hell hounds are protectors of the bane dragons, so if you attack a bane dragon, they should attack you, regardless of your loyalties. Of course you should also not be able to lead them away.

    Anyway, as long as it isn't bugged a.i. like the Baracoon, then I have no problem with it.
