Please fix the "monsters following me while I am stealthed" bug.

GidgeGidge Posts: 380
It has happened for a billion years now (I am not exaggerating) and although it can be fun to have pet monster of various forms following me all over the lands, when I am trying to do something stealthy and I have a piper's parade following me, It just isn't cool anymore.

On a side note, it can happened out of stealth mode. Yes, this is not game stopping....but it can be game interfering for a stealther when we are trying to STEALTH TO NOT BE SEEN OR NOTICED.

It is really prevalent in Khaldun.

  • It definitely makes Bedlam more interesting.

    Please make the Grizzled Mare a 5 slot mount, it's incredibly rare and deserves it.

    But they are like devoted puppies following you around.  If you leave then come back they come running up to you. :)
  • this "feature" is best when the monsters following also have high detect...
    I found the only way to get rid of these is to reveal, let them target you and then hide again. hope this helps as a temporary work around

    Yes. I have been doing that "temporary workaround" for years, but in Felucca, when the goal is not to be seen, it defeats the purpose. :(

    And a lovely feature it is!

    So this is similar to recalling and returning and a mob follows you at fast speed?

    Also have to let them attack you to make them stop.

    Yup, exactly that. It's like they keep you as a target. Their target list needs to time out based on time and distance, not just distance. And a recall or a hide/invis does not break the distance, just the visual "I can't find you but I still have you targeted".
  • While I hope that there's a fix for this, here's how I deal with it.  The mob following doesn't usually attack the instant you become visible. Cast an earth ele, tell it to follow you, not guard. Hide/invis, stealth off with the earth following, the mob will attack it. When either the ele or the mob dies, stealth off unhindered. If the earth won the fight, release it.
  • You can come out of Bedlam with a ton of these guys on you and invis and sit there for an hour, go back inside and they'll still be on you.
