Pack instinct bug (or feature?).

    Did anyone else notice that a pack of pets can loose its "pack" bonus while fighting a single target?

    Here's what happens.

    I'm using a pack of hell hounds against the ratmen in the cavern of discarded.

    When i fight the bosses each hound starts dealing 50-60 damage per blow. The boss doesn't hide and the dogs aren't distracted by other targets. After a while the hounds start dealing 20-30 damage per hit. If i say again "all attack" they re-gain the pack bonus.

    It also happens occasionally that when i issue the attack command and the whole pack responds just some of the hounds receive the pack bonus (like 2 of them hitting for 60 and three for 28).

    Anyone else can confirm this?
  2. I wonder if this happens when pets lose their guilded name coloring and turn blue. It returns after you command your pet.

    I don't have any pack instinct pets, so can't test it.
