Question Pet sometimes leaves guard spot

When I place my pet in the guard position like next to the spawn point for a mob Iím camping, sometimes my pet will randomly return to me despite me never telling the pet to follow me again.

Mob spawns > Pet attack > I stand > Nuke mob twice > I sit > Pet finishes killing mob > pet returns to guard spot OR sometimes returns back to me.

First noticed this when camping AC. Why the heck is it doing this? [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

are you sitting your pet? if you sit your pet after you guard it the pet will go back to following you unless you guard it again after the sit

Ahhhh. Believe you just solved the mystery for me! Thank you so much for that information. And in the process of looking this up, I just read that at this level, sit is pointless anyways for regen so I can just nip that in the bud. Thanks, baub!

I didn't realize that:
Code:
/pet sit
was only useful for certain levels. Can you point me towards where you found that, I'd like to see the details?

Detail: works exactly like the /pet guard here command with a few minor exceptions, low level pets will regen slightly faster. Once pets get their innate regen boost in the low 30's this additional regen becomes inconsequential.

It has to do with lag, much like when they take off and go somewhere else or appear to.

Or for those of us that actually read the thread, itís because sit breaks guard unless you reguard after sitting the pet.

My Shadow Knight pet quite often changes to follow from "guard" without any command (certainly not /pet sit, which I never use). Happens a few times per session typically and has been going on for at least a couple years, now. Slight nuisance but not too big a problem, certainly not the biggest glitch on the server.
