    Default Mob pathing post updates

    Is it me, or has there been some strange mob pathing after the recent patches? Specifically mobs getting stuck around doorways.

    Hi Neurik,

    Unfortunately due to the recent updates, the AI movement has been bugging out or glitching. Thank you for understanding!
    We will try to get this patched immediately, but usually takes us a bit.

    But in all seriousness, there has been a bunch of AI issues with pathing and direct movement. The Grotto had Talbron or whatever the sorcerers name on the island a bit buggy. Others seemed to work for me.

    Not just you, there have been three or four threads on this same subject recently, including one with a dev comment asking for loc and timestamp information.

    We are actively investigating this. If you continue to experience inconsistent pathing post today's downtime, we would appreciate a /loc containing a timestamp (essentially just be sure you're copying the full output of /loc) along with your server.

    From what i have seen it is every quest that has pathing issues... Step in any quest, aggro mobs and run around the corner and you will see.

    One thing is sure, Mobs are automatic draw to Hirelings.

    I was doing VoN3. At fight against the Big Trio near the end fight. The Troll, The Caster and The Beholder were draw to the Hireling parked at the Shrine. The first two ignored me so I could kill them with easily, but the Beholder first gave me a Disintegration (land me unconscious) then headed to pursue the Hireling far way the line of sight. The mobs just knew the Hire locations and were draw to it without any aggro action.

    Baba Lysaga's pathing around the battlefield (in all three sections of the raid where you beat on her) has also been affected. She seems to wander off in bizarre directions now, very unlike where she used to go before the last update (or maybe it was the one right before the last one).

    Did the rift quest in the demonweb and all the mobs were there, no bad pathing and no mobs falling to the entrance. Seems fixed!

    Not all of us sit around all day waiting for the servers to come up. I can go check for you later, but other seem to feel it has been resolved.

    /loc Dagg is at work.

    Not sure what that has to do with the price of tea in Korthos. I had shared my own Demonweb complaints before the reset, then the reset happened, I spent 10 minutes and saw it was running cleanly in my experience, then you complained similarly - if it had not fixed it for you, that would have been significant. If you had not checked since then, your comment was indeterminate.

    (And you seem to have overlooked that some people (and myself included) are West Coast, so servers are usually up before any "reasonable hour" one way or another. No waiting involved.)

    My post said LAUGH, nothing in it was of me complaining. But you're right about the "overlook" see the location in my Avatar? California, I think the West Coast? The server were taken down 6:00 am our time give or take on the day of my post. Now if you mean today, then yes, your observation is correct. You win the Golden Cookie Award!

    Ran Just Business twice, once last night and then this morning. Both time Irk runs straight off the ledge. Last night didn't see where he went, today saw with me own bloodshot eyes.

    This must have been what happened to me last life, the quest was not able to be completed, Irk was no where to be seen after engaging him twice. I spent about 10 minutes at the end fight running around and could never find him so I reset the quest. Also a few mob pathing issues still seem to be happening, Bargain of Blood seemed a little wonky with one of the sorc getting stuck behind a wall and also Memoirs had some strange pathing if I recall. Sorry I did not get a /loc.

    In the Korthos quest with that single Cannith Crystal to be protected, I summoned a Winter Wolf - a small one - with the help from that Splinterskjull Staff.
    Meanwhile the wolf was effective in taking out opponents, it did made some strange zig-zag courses in that room until it returned to me. I don't think I have ever seen that before.
