Why can't we tell summons/pets to attack our own faction members anymore?

    This is riduclous. We're trying to fight some people tonight and one of our tamers can't because they so happen to be in the same faction we are. Just because we're in the same faction does not mean we're friends.

    Not true. On chessy; we have people who are in Minax we dont want in; and my tamer's pet cant attack anyone in Minax. Guilded or not. Red/Blue/Grey. They (pets, summons, etc.) dont attack the same faction period. rolleyes:

    Where were folks when the tamer was trying to attack fellow factioneers? We tried with unguilded Minax characters in the base and it worked. Did not work in town though. Also pets (or mage summons) will still attack another factioneer's pet in town.

    Edited to add: Just to make this crystal clear, the tamer (or mage) can still do DIRECT damage to a faction mate, just like an archer or dexxer can still do DIRECT damage to a faction mate.

    Very very strange....... And very very annoying this was changed with no announcement or explanation.

    I think it's pretty much a sign from god to stop using Greater Dragons for PvP.

    I HEAR YOU LORD!!

    Except it was a Dread War Horse, not a Greater Dragon he was using.

    Also this was in Despise at the champion spawn.

    Revenants dont attack either. You cast them on them and they just stand there.

    Exactly. Revs, EVs, Blades, Elementals/Demons, Pixies, Imps, Animal Summons, Pets, Mounts, Tamables, etc... (I think I got em all)

    Dont attack the same FACTION. This obvisiously was an oversite :sad3:


    Can we get this changed too?

    They wont fix it. They are slowly implementing trammel rules into fel. Soon you wont be able to attack anyone in your faction, and then you probably wont be able to attack anyone thats blue.

    Is this why hot uses 4-5 greater dragons to hold despise??

    How exactly do you die to a greater dragon? Yeah.. they pack a punch.. so.. dont stand underneath them? Having trouble outrunning them or something?
