    Gated to Tomb of Kings and had a few monsters outside come after Tanivar as he went in to see if I remembered the barrier passwords. Opened the barrier, killed a gargoyle, and found I couldn't gate out. Went out the exit stealthed and a few of the monsters came at him but didn't attack though they followed him until the middle bridge on the way to the Ter-Mer moongate. I'd waited a bit and their health bars had gone away but they still followed him.

    ya this is old bug - getting the lurg or grobu or even minatars tagged to you and when you go back into those cave/laberyth they come running up to you and follow you.
    typically I will summon an earth ellie outside and have it follow me in for them to lose target to me (stealthing)

    An old bug yes, but it was supposed to be fixed with Pub 89
    • Pets/mobs no longer follow attackable players when stealth.
    Now, I have not had it happen to me since, but I know it still has. I have been a couple of places where you can see that mobs are following someone. So no, it did not get fixed as stated.

    The patch note is incorrect and should read the following:
    • Pets no longer follow attackable players when stealth.
    For example:
    Player A tells pet to follow Player B.
    If Player B is attackable by Player A and Player B uses stealth then Player A's pet will stop following Player B.

    If that is the case Bleak, can you please put a note on your to-do list to include a fix to monsters following stealthers. It really is annoying. I was hoping this last patch had finally fixed that problem. Guess not.
