Having just completed the last stress test I monitored my pet using the combat log and Details Addon. I was checking for dps loss and the reported slow responses that have been previously reported.
On a Dwarf hunter, Cat, Bear, Wolf, Boar pets regularly did no damage to a fleeing target meaning that during the time a mob did the emote “… attempts to flee” and death. No damage means did not even attempt to damage, there were no dodges, parries or misses, the pet just didn’t register any damage at all, not even auto attacks.
My serpent sting or other hunter damage killed them but not the pet.
Pets also appeared to take stutter steps at odd and sometimes right angles to the mobs direction of travel and looked very “unclassic” and I’ve never seen pets move this way in any stage of the game.
I have always played a hunter, from launch to current retail so I have seen countless mobs run and die. They never looked like this.
Have other hunters experienced this?? Is this a motion bug wherein the pets constant movements make it face the “wrong” way during a pursuit??
