    When i use my warrior to go hunt, like despise champ hunt - he can NEVER be in war mode, cuz then he dont atuo defend the closest mob. I have to be NOT in war mode for to be able to auto defend!!! - what is that`? Big Bug!!!

    When I am at my tamer, if I go to demon temple on fire island with my dread (or dragon). I start fight, it half kill the demon, and it stopps - cuz its attaced by the mobs down...and ....this the worst part... It just stand there till it is dead!!!! NO AUTO DEFEND!!!

    Honestly - fix this, so I can AUTO DEFEND in WAR MODE - and MY PETS FIGHT BACK!!

    What is the reason for to have a warrior if you dont defend, or be a tamer when pets stand still and die?

    Does your weapon have hit area, or any hit-spell effects? if so, that's what is causing you to "stop" auto-defending. anything that makes you directly target something, will make you only attack that target, and nothing else.

    My pet was also not really interested to attack the zombie skeleton I told it to attack, instead it focused to one on the roof of a building ...
