    Sounds like a bug with the recently changed pet notoriety code. This pub supposedly has a fix for a flagging issue that caused pets to go grey, which would cause their owners to go grey by healing their pets (unless you commanded your pet to reflag it to match your flag)

    I'm assuming the notoriety code in UO is a circus, so it's probably really easy to screw a lot of stuff up by tweaking it.

    Sounds like you were training them without any chance of harm to them or you isnt that againt some rules :gun:

    SOrry just getting a dig in, There were a few canges made so pets wont flag and get killed in guard zones, looks like htere are a few isssues with pets after the last PuB.
  4. I am not sure if that is against the rules but i did have to keep healing both of them until they ran out of mana then all they keep doing is poisoning each other but then they cure themselves so I think since they do harm each other then it should be ok

    It's not a bug and it isn't new.

    If you're training and a pet turns blue, or both do, then it's a criminal act to attack them. Hence why you need to tell them to guard before they fight.

    What happens when you try to stop 2 mares fighting (or any casters) is sometimes a spell lands after you tell them to stop. Outside guardzones you can try breaking fights up quite a few times before it works.

    So what probably happened was the stray spell landed on your blue pet after you said stop, which got the pet whacked and you as its controller.

    Best solution is to not pet train inside towns, it's also annoying as heck to listen to 2 mares fighting so it's more considerate to others if you do.

    You can also mount a mare to stop the fight, but don't count on the pet you mounted not dropping a spell if you then dismount. I've done that when I accidentally target a pet with a kill command when hunting, sometimes they've gone at it again :D

    Do you have a macro that says "all stop" then "all follow" by any chance? I'm sure that's how my younger tamer got herself and a kitsune killed during a brief spar lol. I think when she just said stop about 10 times and waited to be sure they stopped, it was ok. But it's much safer to train outside town. Better still, if their skills are up a bit - just hunt with them. Mobs don't call guards ;)
