    Guy goes grey, I attack him.

    40 seconds later I'm in GZ chasing this clown. I say All Kill I get whacked and my pixies get whacked?

    Jesus, it has been like 10 years. Fix this.

    There's your problem, you're playing with pets or summons.

    Nothing beats the blue bards following you around discoing your pets and not going grey.

    Just to clarify, here is a Scenario.

    John flags grey. 1 minute passes and I see him.

    I attack him and he runs for another 60 seconds, I finally get him para shotted and dismounted. John is still grey to me, but blue to everyone else.

    I say "all kill" and because my pets weren't flagged, I wasn't flagged.

    Srsly? No wonder I can never keep a tamer blue. That can't be the intended mechanic.

    Yeah... just got to remember that your pets don't actually flag until they deal dmg to the target. I never even try to use casting pets around the GZ bc of the spell target thing that pets do from an unlimited distance etc.

    Not specific to PvP really, just the mechanics of pets, but this whole "pet can't see target" ******** is so annoying when doing things like barrels, or anything for that matter. Should say YOU can't see target. The pet can see the target, but the owner can't, and therefore the pet can't see the target. I understand the situation would be exploitable if the owner could just tell a pet to go in like a bomb sniffing dog, but meh.
