    Auto Companions bug

    Today i was questing on my Witchdoctor and i noticed companions were casting stuff when i wanted to to pass. In this instance i wanted to wait for Carcarius to cast his Will buff when the enemy was closer. Instead he casted the buff. Then the following round i wanted him to pass he used the purge magic spell on friendly units.. all those buffs were gone immediately luckily i was able to flee and start just that fight again... What if i was doing team play and my companion got the bright idea to purge all buffs on everyone just cause that can be a nightmare! @One-eyed_ Jack @Ratbeard

    This is not a bug - you need to go into your Settings and turn off Auto Companions.

    I sure your companion is not suppose to cast purge magic on friendly units especially when there nothing to purge. This is programing error on kingsisle less long the fact i ever turned this feature on in the first place as i just logged in and subscribed after nearly a 1 year hiatus. @Swordroll

    It might benefit you to at least check to see if that option is on. It may have been turned on by mistake, or be on by default.

    Fine

    Re: Auto Companions bug

    If you have Automate Companions turned on, there is a place on the Companion power bar where you can click to make them not act on that turn. I think someone may have posted a screenshot of that when it was first introduced, if not, I will try to post a screenshot for you.

    EDIT: I found the picture I was thinking of in the Update Notes from December, 2017 -- you click the Hourglass next to the Flee button and the selected companion will skip their turn.

    Click image for larger version.
