    There i was in cove, doing my thing. All kill all kill Por Corp Wis spamming, the works. Finally kill the vanguard, weaken the war horse, stable the dragon and come back to tame the evil pony. One attempt later, i got it. "sweeeet...." i thought and told it to follow me. Suddenly i heard the magic words, "Thou Wilt Regret Thine Actions Swine!".....The evil guard had killed my pony... i wasnt even going to keep it, it was for a family member. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Happened alot when they first came out in Cove mainly because most tamers have "all guard me" on a macro and they hit it as soon as they tame an animal. Haven't had the problem since I changed the macro to say "All Stop". Just hit the macro as soon as it is tamed, then jump on it and recall away. What shard do you play? May be able to help tame one for you.
     
  3. ya happen to me as well, Cove guards were quick to kill the dread. After that as soon as I saw the change on its health bar, wild to tame, I would jump on it.

    There's some sort of bug where some fresh tames will be flagged crim or aggro or something like that, where the new pet's status as your tamed pet doesn't go through all the way (something like that). The health bar and name will be highlighted grey on the fresh tame when this happens. It's a fairly recent problem, it started within the past month or so.

    It happens with both honor tames (where the pet has never actually tried to attack you) and otherwise.

    My usual way of dealing with it if i've tamed something in a guard zone is to mount it and get it the heck out of town and keep it out of town until the color of it's health bar updates correctly. I have also seen it work (on a guilded char anyway) to say "all guard me" and make it take a step. The bar should turn green-colored when you do that. I have never tried that particular one in a guard zone, though, so I can't say I entirely trust it there.

    There's other weird bugs with pet flagging right now, new ones. And you can even get yourself guardwhacked by releasing certain pets in town and calling guards right away. I released a bake kitsune in town and called guards, and then I got guardwhacked, and then the bake (which was still guarding me) attacked the guard, and they had a brief fight (the bake lost). I was still linked to the pet even though I had released it, and I could see the damage amounts that the guard did to the bake as the guard killed it.

    The "all stop" then "all follow me" commands seem to work just fine, especially if there are other spawn around and the mare starts attacking it before you can mount up. The main thing is to jump on it as fast as possible and get away. Then there is always the option of luring it out of guard zone.

    I think the bug about getting pet guard whacked has been around for some time, just that you normally don't tame aggressive animal in towns/guard zones that often. I remember about 2 years ago someone had tamed a lesser for my sammi char and at Skara stables he hit release instead of transfer. He was able to retame it quickly, but as soon as he did, it was guard whacked.

    The grey flagging seems to happen, if either a spell hits after you successfully tamed, you are poisoned, while you tamed the horse or the pet is under effect of a self blessing spell after just tamed.
    And yes, I hate this kind of guard activity too.

    It's either part of the wonkiness dealing with spaghetti code or part of the fun challenge that is the sandbox!!
