Since latest patch anyone else noticed pets not guarding properly?

    Havent seen any posts on this yet but tried 2 different pets last nite after the latest patch and even though I received the message that they were guarding me the only way to get them into a fight was to give them the attack command? Whereas before if I had cast an attack spell or was being attacked the pets would automatically attack the hostile.

    Did you have a pet in the Stables guarding you? You can only have 1 pet Guarding you at a time, so that might of been it. Easy way to fix it is to claim the pet from stables, tell it to Stop, then stable it again.

    Well my Cu is my main pet and he was who I tried first when I did stable him and pull out a rune beetle the Cu probably was still guarding me but i have never had this issue when swapping pets before.
  4. I think there are some funny things going on with this, but I can't say when it would have started.

    Earlier today I had 2 pets guard me via the 'all guard me' command, and then I recalled into an area with giant serpents (felucca). A giant serpent took the liberty of walking up to me and biting on me while my pets stood there and watched me beat it to death with my mage weapon.

    I think this also happened in a different area where I recalled in front of an ogre. The ogre got on me right away, and I ended up doing an all kill quite fast, but in that time frame I think I noted that the pets weren't guarding, it was my all kill that dealt with it.

    Just now I logged in with my 2 pets and did 'all guard me' several times before dragging them off to Deceit (trammel). One pet seemed to be functionally guarding me whereas the other one just followed me around and eventually went "blue" instead of "green". Even when I single clicked that pet and selected "command: guard", it did not actually guard.

    I did the guard commands several times in there, messed around with it a bit, and in that time there wasn't any one clear thing I could do to make both pets correctly guard me.

    It would take a while to test this extensively enough to do a half decent bug report. It looks complicated, but yeah, earlier today there was an incident where neither pet guarded me properly.

    Guard isn't the most reliable at the best of times. I just always issue kill commands, much safer.

    What I hate more than that is the bug that makes a pet NOT move when you tell them to attack...... they will follow you around fine but the min you tell them to attack somthing they lock up solid as a rock..... and whatever you tell them to attack has to come to them..... or if it's attacking you you had better be standing right on your pet.... or it won't attack it..... I hate that bug..... have one heck of a time fixing it too.
