NPC spawn overlaps tent pole, is stuck then pathing is bugged

**Game mode: Online official
**Type of issue: Bug
**Server type: PvE
**Region: Oceanic

NPC spawn point overlaps the pole of the tent over the Pagoda of Boundless Lusts awning near Derkato religion teacher. The NPC dancer spawns trapped inside the pole. He/she runs in place for a short time when a player is detected. He/she then seems to free themselves but walks off the the right towards the bed (west) and disappears.

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Approach the Derkato religion teacher location by going up the set of stairs at the Pagoda of Boundless Lust and face the teacher with the alter between you and her.
  2. Wait until the NPCs in the area detect your presence. Observe that the dancer NPC who spawns at this location: TeleportPlayer 342316.28125 177367.21875 -16170.030273
    … spawns within the pole that is located here. This is one of the locations that Varkin Fleetfoot can spawn, he used to be a guaranteed named dancer spawn at these co-ordinates but now is a rare spawn.
  3. Do not approach the NPCs on the far side of the Derkato religion teacher, but observe that one NPC can run out to you (usually a Cook NPC) and the other (a dancer NPC) is stuck inside the tent pole running in place…and then seems to get free but instead of heading to your location on the far side of fire he/she walks off the the right and disappears.
  4. Go down the hill and along the beach underneath the cliffs below the Pagoda of Boundless Lust structure and find the dancer NPC has teleported down to the ground below the NPC encampment.

This exactly. Happens every time.

Can confirm. This is the old 100% Varkin Fleetfood (Entertainer) spawn, where now any entertainer can spawn.
But the spawnpoint is to close to that small pole, so they get stuck there everytime they stand up as @Kwalya explains perfectly.

Pagoda of Boundless Lusts - Behind Yakira, Priestess of Derketo the Religion trainer of Derketo.
