    I was fighting in Terathan Keep last night and my Dragon got stuck behind a ledge. No problem, I'll just tell him to come three times............But no! He doesn't teleport at all. He just sparkles and keeps flying into the ledge hurting his face.

    So I guess the fix to prevent teleporting into houses was to stop pets from teleporting at all?
     
  2. This was mentioned in my Bone Daemon thread. Teleport for all monsters, tame or otherwise is broken.

    All that can be done is to wait for a fix... stuff like this is why we don't see fixes for ancient bugs often, I bet; when they try, stuff they'd never be able to anticipate goes wrong.

    Does that mean that greater dragons will stop teleporting through the floor in the fire temple?

    Hmmm....I actually thought that was kind of fun, especially if you were there with one or two other people doing a mass slaughter.

    Well if they want to fix tamers I'm sure there's much better ways :)

    Though perhaps it's easier on them to sneak in "bugs" than bite the bullet. C'mon devs, just make control/bonding require real skill, get it over with. Right now it's stupid logging in a tamer who can't target and whose pets can't teleport from a stuck spot.

    I thought I had noticed this new behavior yeah - pets do seem to have quit teleporting to you when you drop "all come" twice, at least much of the time.

    I am pretty sure the underlying reason is the same thing as is talked about in this thread:

    http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=4931

    and yeah, the dragons are no longer teleporting up through the floor in Demon Temple. One can go and kill demons all day now, and the dragons will never teleport out.

    I want the old behavior back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish they'd say something about all this. It totally sucks, they just have to fix it I'd think, it's too bad to let go.

    This will never happen. They changed it in AoS because even back then people refused to get real skill. If they made controlling/bonding pets suddenly require real skill a lot of tamers would leave this game. Do you honestly think this game can stand to lose 75% of its tamers when tamers are the most popular template?
