AI Enemies will not aggro - Official Server #1531

Game mode: [Online | Multiplayer - Official Server #1531]
Problem: [Bug - AI enemies will not aggro]]
Region: [All]

AI enemies of all sorts, Animals and Humans alike will not attack me on sight like they used to. There are occasions where they will attack as normal but most the time all enemies are bugged so they will just stand there and do nothing unless you damage them, then they will attack you.

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Log in
  2. Stand in front of an enemy that should aggro naturally (Rocknose, Crocodile, Enemy human, etc)
  3. Observe AI enemy not attack you.
  4. Be aware that occasionally server AI enemy function will work normally (Stutter lag present sometimes)

Some attack, some don’t, very strange. No pattern that I can see.
Worse when they don’t look like they are going to attack, then seem to teleport to you and get the first hit.

Same bug on Official Server #1053 (PvE). Sometimes they attack as they used to, and sometimes all the mobs are not attacking (like in kasper301’s case). Even dungeon bosses (Kinscourge for example) dont attack!

And sometimes when my character stays in front of NPC, the mob waits for 7-10sec and then attacks me.

This bug was actual after MOAP and i dont understand why it’s still not fixed.

Same server PVE-1053. Same issues. And players across the realm report the same:

  1. NPC not gaining agro at all unroll you got them (tested in EVERY biome and several dungeons)
  2. NPC only start attacking after several seconds of standing in their direct line of sight and within a meter.
  3. NPC acting passively in the entire biome and then suddenly SOME become aggressive and others - don’t. Depends on the part of the biome.
  4. Thrall completely disabled from time to time. No matter how much you move them and change their positions - they still won’t fire anything. If they see a potential threat - they just charge towards an enemy and stand close without drawing weapon. And no matter how much you’re hit by that npc.

I dunno what’s the reason for that but it’s getting really frustrating to run across completely passive biomes where you can enter and dungeon and any resource location freely…
Two minipatches have been released since then…and the picture is still the same

The server I am playing on is having the same issue. Sometimes the AI aggro as normal, but most of them are not aggroing until attacked,

On my rented server it happens as well. Work around this problem, restart server x2 times. Must be done 2 restarts in a row.

Ok, and when this bug will be fixed on the official servers? PVE #1053 Server is still in “Pacifist mode”. Sometimes all the NPCs are attacking and sometimes all of them are not aggressive. That is annoying

Same for Official pvp server 1115… takes a lot of the fun from the game

Private vanilla server:
Some mobs will agro right away, others are delayed by 5-10 seconds, others rarely agro.

While I understand complaining about this for the sake of developer intent, I cannot fathom why one would find this to be a bad bug worth reporting from a player perspective. This was a godsend for me when I was running naked for POI xp.

I miss the survival aspect of this survival game, that’s all.

Yeah, +1. And the most disappointing moment is dungeon bosses that are not aggressive. That is boring(

Also why there is no information about status of this issue in the Issues status thread? There is only information about thralls aggro bug, but this is not only about thralls - this is about all the mobs.

yeah I just went through the volcano dungeon, and not one mob attacked me. even the end boss, the apparitions just popped up and stood still. just walked around killing them one by one. This is on official 1504.

the current state of the game makes me very sad. Hopefully they can turn things around.
