Chaos patrol uses Shadow Magic to teleport inside very small space [Gone terribly wrong]

Issue Summary:
There are situations where enemy mobs teleport to hidden places to reach players from new positions (players moved via elevater, etc). I think sometimes they should not do that, at least not patrols.
This one happened on Halescourge. Chaos patrol was aggro’ed and we hid in upper floor of nearby tower which had small useful room under its roof. And no, I don’t mean roof where the tome is, I mean roof bit higher than that which allows enemy mobs to spawn and drop down whenever need arises. That is all good but I don’t think such a small room can house whole Chaos patrol. And ladder doesn’t let properly get down to ground level too.
Needless to say that was anticlimactic way to lose

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Play on Halescourge
  2. Aggro Chaos patrol
  3. Go upstairs of small tower
  4. Watch the Shadow Magic show

Ouch :smiley: So the Level Team came back on this one and sorry to say it wont be changing.

  1. It makes for great videos but more importantly:
  2. The Patrol was agro’d. It needed to be killed at that point, but they aren’t able to climb, so they will be moved to the top of the Tower so they can climb down - a skill they do possess.

Yeah, it’s a bit weird, but if you pull a patrol it’s good to encounter it where it stands or backpedal to somewhere they can climb, to avoid them dropping in from above.
