Mount dismissing necro minions

I don't know if this is a bug or working as intended but I noticed when you mount up twice in a row all your minions get dismissed and go on cooldown.


  • I'm having the same issue, assumed it's a bug since sometimes they stay, sometimes they disappear which is rather annoying if you're being dismounted by mobs and go directly into combat without your healing buddy ;)

  • Not fixed yet. It's very annoying when mobs can kill you and your heal pet on cd.

  • This bug is annoying me to no end as I'm playing a scourge through the new chapter. Any word on a fix, please, Anet?

  • this is such a basic thing that in no way should be in the game still, come on, guys

    at start I was really annoyed like the rest of you guys, wondering why am i keep on losing my minions, then i figured it out, it happens when you dismount and remount too quickly, like switch mount with hotkeys or just continuously tapping the mount key (x)

    but I've grown to actually quite like this unintended 'feature' these days, since you cannot directly control them like ranger's pet
    it's a quick way to dismiss all of them without reskill

    at times i would find myself in situations where I just wanna trespass through an area, and wanting to get out of combat asap after getting hit by mobs, having minions prolongs the time stuck in combat (i.e. the loot phase of Palawadan), and only summons minion at the situation where i really wanting to beat the kitten out of those mobs

  • It's still happening and it's honestly annoying the kitten out of me. Glad you found out the cause. Maybe it doesn't bother you but it's a huge waste of time and annoyance to most of us. I constantly mount and dismount to talk to npcs, gather, swap to bunny to jump, skimmer to swim/brand etc. and it happens a fair amount of the time. It's definitely an easily fixed bug since it keeps your pets if you don't do it too fast. This means that while mounted, the game keeps track of your skills and timers. They need to find out what is causing the issue and fix it.

  • 8 (almost 9) months later - still occurring........

    I've been experiencing this same thing, submitted an in game bug report, suggest every one else to the same, the more reports they see may speed up getting this fixed.

  • Any updates regarding the bug ? As a main minionmaster , this bug really is a game-killer ...

    They really don't bother with fixes that for what THEY consider minor. There are so many that they just ignore, some for years. I get the felling they even read this section.

  • I really hope that it is not the case here.....
