Pack llamas acting odd

    I'm trying to move some stuff to the bank to place into commodity deeds, for sale on vendors.
    2 pack llamas, both are store bought and bonded, named "A" and "B". Both loaded the same(1513 stones). "A" always follows me, even if told to stay. "B" always disappears when I recall to a bank, even if I log out/in, or close/restart client. Followers count drops as well. After I recall back home "B" comes walking in from off-screen, after 15-20 seconds. I've tried both menu and voice commands, using both ALL and individual names, same. Repeated this 4-5 times.
    Something I'm doing wrong here?
    I've used them both before at the same time like this, but it's been a while
    Some don't listen now, and some just don't like going to town any more, or what?

    tried yet again, pulled both health bars, recalled to bank, had 2 of the same bars, count remained correct.

    Are the llamas actually named "A" and "B" or are those names you made up for your post? If those aren't the pets' actual names, do their actual names have spaces in them? Is your character in factions by any chance and, if so, are you giving the commands to the pets while you're in Felucca?

    stabled A, loaded B, All follow me, recall, no packy, logout/in, nada
    Packy stayed in the house
    took it outside, went 2 doors away, recalled, packy stays in place, but since close, comes back to me.

    I'll try food next - if I log, shouldn't it come regardless?
    If I tell it stay or follow, it does until I recall

    Yes, they had the orig names, but when I started having problems, I renamed them to that (no spaces) to try to isolate what the problem follows

    I believe that loaded but unmounted pack animals don't join your character if you log out away from the pet and then log back in. I think they stay where you last left them and will start to wander after a while if you are away from them for too long.

    You might want to double check your pet command macros and make sure you don't still have a whispered command that's messing things up somehow.

    If you have even one item in a pack animals backpack it will not follow you when you recall. Be it bonded or not. It will attempt to follow you on land, thus the reason it comes walking back from off screen. It's been like this for a few years now.

    If you log out it will still not follow you. Only way to prevent it from running around is to make it "stay" until you return. Otherwise your animal will try to follow you by walking to wherever you recalled to.

    Hold on a sec are they bonded? Cause you cant just recall away and have them follow you. You would need to log in and out to get them back and sometimes they dont come back therefore a gate is better!

    Are you sure they are both bonded? Just for the sake of argument try this if they are.
    Separate and feed each one saying to both: All stop, then All follow me, then see if both attend your recall out. both should begin to act normal....

    A GM long ago told me the over ride command is the: ALL STOP
    This is to drop all commands prior to this minute. You might want to repeat it a few times then do the A follow me / B follow me or as I do All follow me.

    Word of advice though, feed them often. You would not beleave that some think they run on air and forget to feed... loyalty is built on the feed and call... unless they changed that from pets...

    Feeding also cancels any prior commands. Tell them to follow you after giving them food.

    Two identical pets who are both following you will often stack in Tram and appear to be just one.

    sorry, having excavation for a pool and had to go out for a bit. "B" went wild while I was out, duh, but I got it's pack. Both animals were bonded, both would Stay or Follow on command. (I tried making each one independently react to those commands, success). And I'd park them in separate tiles to be doubly sure which one complies correctly. Only "A" arrives when I recall.
    With the "B" wild now, using just the "A" packy, that one works normally. I'll get another pack llama tomorrow maybe and see if it's Only when 2 llamas are used, or maybe just that one pack became bugged somehow. I've had them both or at least a year and used them both at the same time on several occasions w/o any problem ever.
    Seeing the Follower count drop with having a missing pack animal to boot is what scared me. I feel lucky now that I got my stuff back.
    And I was thinking that a successful command resets their loyalty.

    I know that when i recall, and I am not mounted on my beetle, he does not recall with me, but will go tearing off across the screen trying to get to where i recalled to. Then, when i recall back to the general area I was in, he tries to come there, but it seems more often than not, he ends up caught on some terrain feature and i have to run around all panicky trying to locate him.

    Of course, after a half dozen times of that, I have learned ot mount my beetle BEFORE recalling, or use a gate.

    That's what my B packy does (I think), just the one tho, not both
    and A Pack llama can't be mounted so I don't have that option.
    All Bonded pets recall w/ you i believe, mounted or not - and spring to you when you log back in
