Rare spawn scritch resets too easily

Bug Report
I have come across Scritch several times now, about 5 or 6 times now. I have gotten about 20 attempts in on him, and managed to only kill him once.

The problem is he goes bananas and then he resets because he got too far from this stupid cubby hole.

Ive probably done enough damage to equal 10-15 kills. Please fix him- its hard enough to kill him on a pvp server, I dont want to spend 5 minutes holding my breath hoping nobody comes by..... or get him down to 25k only to have him reset on me...... again.

By the 3rd attempt or so each rare spawn, im generally too upset and twitchy to avoid the banana and then the horde come on by for something that should have been dead minutes ago.
I don't know mages well but what I do is I send my pet into the hole and have him tank the guy since he doesn't or hasn't jumped out of the hole while going bananas and I just sit outside of the hole and just dps as normal. I am also on a pvp realm and lucky haven't been killed yet. I rarely see him up in my realm.
I know this probably doesn't help much but I thought I could at least try.
This could be a bug with Hozen rares in general.

I had this happen once with Spriggin in Krasarang Wilds yesterday. He used Going Bananas and I avoided his jumps but didn't attack him. He eventually got too far away from his spawn location and reset.

Sorry, I should mention I only play my druid now. She's a tank/feral. I try both but I never have enough dps to get him down it seems. Mostly because I don't have anything with haste on it. Tanking him in the hole usually results in getting hit with the banana. So I do have to leave the hole. I tried using about 3 luckydos too and he still reset!

Pythus, how far away did he get!? Scritch doesnt get very far at all
If you have any stuns, save them for when he starts going bananas.
blah wrong thread
duskwood server 6:35 pm. just got him and no pipe :( did not reset at all was a pretty easy kill actually.
They've made a couple hotfixes to the rare hozen since this thread was made. That's why you generally don't want to bring up several month old threads.
