    There is a thread in UHall with discussion of the griefing of tamers by a bard. In brief, a bard (lets call em jackass) finds some tamer fighting a captain, discords his pet and watches it die. It is impossible to keep pet alive even for 3 mage-vet tamers, for example macer kills discorded GDragon in 2-3 swings. I've seen a single jackass having 3 tamers being unable to kill a single captain for almost an hour, and it ended up that tamers stopped using their pets and started to cast harmful mage spells to finish their fight. There was a nice quote in that thread, that cannot be argued with
    The problem is that discorder, doing harmful actions to blue players in guard zone is not been marked as a criminal, and cannot be punished, either by guards or players... As a matter of common sense, its much like fighting the invulnerable player, that can harm and kill you or your pet and you cant even fight it back... it should be considered a physical harassment through game mechanics, I have read even ORIGIN'S POLICY REGARDING HARASSMENT, it says
    I have reported that to a GM and haven't got any reply.

    Resume: Please verify if discording a player's pet should be considered a harmful action, and if so make the discorder marked criminal for such actions. Thanks.

    Can we have a confirmation if it is a bug, a griefing or it is made on purpose and we have to live with this?

    There is a bug already in the system on this issue. We are currently discussing potential fixes for the problem and hope to have a solution out in an upcoming publish.
