This is four times now that someone has ninjaed my spot as soon as my golem despawned. Still need the achievement for this and would be nice if the golems in place acted like the shards for Happy Feet please and thank you.
Unfortunately it’s always been a thing. Even back in TSW the Shems that were preparing to dance would despawn if they were out too long.
I doubt they’ll make any changes although I agree it can be quite annoying.
That was changed a bit in SWL; I noticed the other day that if a shem is out dancing, it’s not possible for me to make it stop short of running far away. I couldn’t switch to another pet or despawn it myself while it was out getting ready for the dance.
