    I play a pvp tamer, not a dexxer tamer, or a mage tamer, or whatever template tamer, but a tamer mage. I am a tamer first, and my pets are my primary means of dealing damage. There aren't many like me around, and even fewer that are even moderately successful (not counting SP).

    I joined factions not too long ago, but I've run into two serious issues having to do with pets in factions.

    - The first issue I know the devs are aware of, and that is that pets won't attack other members of the same faction, and in fact won't even respond to the guard command and won't in any way defend themselves or their owners if attacked by other members of the same faction. Meanwhile other templates have no restrictions on functionality against members of their own faction in Felucca, other than the normal red/blue and flagging rules.

    - The second issue has to do with the special faction aligned mobs. The won't attack members of their own factions, but they will attack their pets if they are normally aggressive, but the pets can't attack them. The pets don't have the same protection against these mobs that their owners do, and this can be a real problem for example for tamers in TB with a vermin spawn when the silver serpents come swarming out.

    So I guess my question is, are there any plans to address these issues at some point?

    Faction Pet Combat Fixes

    • Faction players may now order their pets to attack member of the same faction
    • Pets will now correctly guard against attacks from same-faction players
    • If a faction player attacks the summoned creature of a member of the same faction, the summoned creature will retaliate
    • Summoned creatures will attack aggressors who are in the same faction as the summoner
