This bug fix addresses a long standing problem in Wrath Classic: Guardian AI. If you are a Death Knight or a Shaman, you have probably noticed that your Army of the Dead, Fire Elemental Totem & Earth Elemental Totem don’t always attack when you want them too. This was particularly noticeable on the Yogg Saron encounter while battling the Brain.

This hotfix claims to have fixed those issues, and will now place Guardian pets in defensive mode by default. Quite simply, this means that when you attack a target, your Guardian should also attack that target.

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Fixed a bug that could prevent combat pets from attacking when the player attacks.
    • Developers’ notes: This bug was commonly seen by Death Knights, who reported their Army of the Dead ghouls standing around when they were expected to be attacking the Death Knight’s target. As a result of this fix, all combat pets should now engage enemies as they did in original Wrath of the Lich King. Now, pets in Defensive mode will attack when you do, without requiring that you command them to attack, and pets that don’t come with a pet bar will default to Defensive mode.

    • Paladin
      • Fixed an issue causing Paladins’ Improved Concentration Aura to reduce the duration of friendly Death Knights’ Anti-Magic Shell.
