    When I summon anything (Or in another case; my faction war horse) and have it named, the "NAME Follow" or "NAME Follow me" commands are broken.

    To break it down further, you have a pet. (A dragon) It's name is Bill. You have to say "All Kill" or "All follow me" or "All follow" in order for him to obey. If you click the menu; it works fine.

    But; if you say "Bill follow", "Bill follow me", and/or "Bill kill" it does not work. I am assuming this was broken by accident; and wasn't meant to be. Hope some other notice this and can get it changed back to what it used to be. Calling every single one of my pets and summons "All" isn't very fun.

    Not broken for me. "Petname follow me" worked fine just yesterday on 2 different pets.

    It works for me, it's not possible that your pet's name has a hidden space at the beginning or end?
    Or is the problem client related? I'm using classic client.
    I like the idea of 'name' follow etc, but ran out of keys to tie macros to and don't type fast enough to go without them. So I use the 'all' option, but whispered, with something more friendly spoken. eg: 'all follow me' whispered is followed by 'come along with momma' spoken.

    Alright well; lets do some process of elimination.

    A guildy and myself both did it with..

    Pixies, Our War Horses, && a summoned demon.

    We are both RED and in fell, and both in factions (COM). Didn't work for either of us after name changes on each summon/pet various times.

    Anyone else have the same results with similar circumstances?

    Keep in mind that the pet you are commanding must have only one name. When I bought my dread, his name was "Put Smile On." With that name, I could only command him using the "all" commands. Once I changed his name to "Smile," I was then able to use commands such as, "Smile Kill," etc.

    Well I know what the problem is since he said "faction horse" The name commands are broken because now while you are in fel the pet thinks its name is "Bob[SL]" so you have to say "Bob[SL] Kill" for it to work if you are in fel.

    Sorry about that. It's the classic client.


    I changed all there names to 1 word names. Usually Bill or Bob for easiness sake.

    I just tried this. I tried "Bill[TB] Stay" "Bill [TB] Stay", etc. Nothing.


    Although; I tried both blue and red faction characters (All in fell) and seem to be having the problem regardless. So its not a RED/BLUE character problem. But it seems to be a faction problem as Cloak stated.

    Anyone else help me out here?


    AND APPARENTLY! NOW FIX IT =(

    I can't fix it :(!
    It's because there is a space between Flutter and [SL] and since you cannot use spaces in commands those of us that dare tread on the other side of the red gate (and are in factions) are forced to use the "all" commands instead of using our pets names like human beings (or elves?).

    Well here's my nitpick about it.

    Being a spellweaver; I summon pixies. Great right? K.

    So now; I say "All guard me" "All Kill". Great so far right? K.

    I get dismounted. THERE GOES MY HORSE!! OFF TO THE RACES!!

    Wtf? lol. If I could say "Bob follow me" and Bob, like a good boy, could come back, and my pixies could kill that jerk of a dismounter themselves!!

    Bumping so maybe a DEV can read it and/or acknowledge this problem. :)

    reporting a bug ingame or sending a mail to the bug report adress (don't know by heart but someone else will) should give you a better chance to actually reach a dev.

    And you're right, this sounds like a bug and it's not a nice one.

    yea I do not know what they "fixed" to break this but it is sort of recent and highly annoying since I command my pets separately. And yea either send a bug report or use the "ask a dev" forum....those would be your best bet.

    Same problem here! I noticed it while I was recently working Taming on Ice Island. I was taming polar bears... I named one a, made an "a release" macro... nothing. Typed it... nothing! The damned thing wouldn't respond to anything accept an "all" command or through use of the context menu. I am also in factions, so there is one thing we have in common. Maybe a faction issue? *shrugs*
