Diablo® III

Followers and Treasure Goblins

(Locked)

Can we make them not so friendly?

There are times when I'd really love my beautiful Enchantress/Templar/Scoundrel to not play patty cake with my silly goblin/mana battery from Golden Axe.

PS This makes me batty.

PPS They're so from Golden Axe.

We agree that it would be awesome if followers didn't auto-attack monsters are that in an idle state (i.e. treasure goblins). We think it's a great idea and are definitely looking into changing that AI behavior, but we don't have any solid idea as to when a change like that might make it into the game. We'll keep you updated. :)
Hopefully this means summoned pets as well? I really hate when my ferrets run off and engage elite packs and goblins. Never ends well.
Do the pet options from Hunters on WoW

They should always be on Defensive. They don't attack unless you get hit or attack.
Now hold on a min... A tank should inicate and grab agro, and that is exactly what my tanklar does...

At least in the lower level difficulties.
AAArrg. Followers and pets attacking treasure goblins makes me want to punch my kitty.

That is not a euphemism.

This is what a ferrets do, have you not seen Beast Master?
Can you make it so they don't jump into a portal if you're beating on them also? Some classes have less dps...

Remove enrage timers while you're at it because that's another thing that discriminates against certain classes.

u cannot make the followers defensive or only attack the target ur attacking because ranged classes use the templar as a tank and a tank needs to be able to get aggro from EVERYTHING i nthe area, not just the 1 target im attacking at the time.

id rather see something like a pet bar that allows me to command the follower

Yes, but I only want him to go after stuff that is aggro'd on me, not stuff that is just sitting there idling. I don't want him pulling more stuff into the fight. When he does that I yell, "Stupid derplar!" at the screen.

Off-topic I know, but someone remind me the name of the Sega Genesis game that was a co-op, top down, action RPG, very similar to Diablo... Anyone?
While their added MF is nice, the first time this happened I dismissed it as it chased the goblin away from me

Edit: still not using them as their bonus isnt even worth that happening again
