Weird bug, pets not following orders...

    I have a pair of Ruddy Bouras and JoaT. When I say "all kill" and target a monster, typically one of the Bouras attacks and goes to it, while the other attacks, but just sits there. He wont follow any other orders until the monster is dead, then he follows just fine. It's not that he's disobeying orders because there's no loyalty loss, he just doesn't move.

    I've had this bug with my tamer with a pack of hellhounds as well. Anyone else noticed this or know why this is?

    Nope, I am training up a pair of Raptors and all is as should be.

    Happened to me with one of my wolf spiders after he died.

    He apparently ressurected on a different z-axis level than the ground and wouldn't move to attack (At least that's my theory). I had to log out and in to fix the problem.

    I don't know if the cause is correct, but the solution (log out/in) should work.

    Hm, they're working now... (since a log out) Not sure if the log-out was the cause of the fix or not, but i'll keep it in mind for next time.

    Just verified, Logging in and out *does* fix this bug. Cause is still uncertain. The one that bugs is the one that hasn't died yet. May be of note that the one that doesn't get targeted by the enemy is the one that's bugging.

    The other solution I'd try would be to feed the pet, although I haven't had a pet present with this bug to know if that fixes it too. But maybe worth a shot if it's not safe to re-log :)

  7. I've had this happen to me on occasion when fighting with a pair of bake kitsuni. But usually issuing a direct command (i.e., "A Kill") would take care of it. I didn't make the connection, but it would not happen the next time I logged in. So maybe re-logging fixes it.

    I'd still be interested in learning exactly how it happens so I could submit a proper bug report.
     
  9. Ya, good idea, but I have found it to be repeatable.

    If this is with the Enhanced Client and NOT the 2D Classic Client, then you may want to post it in the Beta Enhanced Client Forum.

    If it is with both then the probabilities are that it is server side. *Shrug* In that case then UHall has been used to bring such issues to the EA/Mythic Team and or pmailing Chrisy.

    I had this bug with my Cu in the Twisted Weald at the spiders... no loyalty loss, affirmative bark, but he wouldn't move. Feeding fixed it.

    It's both clients (thus likely server side) and a rare bug (I haven't succeeded in reproducing it on purpose).

    And I've had better luck with bugs actually getting fixed by using the in-game bug report systems. But it's always good to repeat the bugs here to either confirm that they are, in fact, repeatable and bugs as well as to bring it to the attention of the other players, who might also fill out bug reports through the "proper" channels.

    With Cu's and other ridable pets, mounting them fixes it as well.
