not sure if this is somethin that was changed or what...

[D'Mare Fin, Lost Caves]
Warm yellow light flickers in from the west, illuminating walls of granite that extend upwards into the darkness beyond your sight. The deafening roar of water reverberates through the area, from a jet of water issuing forth from a crevice midway up the wall. The mineral-rich water crashes into a steaming pool, sending a fine misty spray over the floor, and you.
Other life here: a stone giant, a stone giant, a stone giant, a stone giant.
Obvious exits: west and northwest.

A stone giant just went west.

A stone giant twists the boulder in its hand, adjusting his grip on it.
>look giant
Massive legs fill your field of vision and you have to crane your neck back to see the rest of this creature. The giant is clothed in hides which seem to be entire animal skins patched together and holding a large boulder in one hand.
The giant looks to be in near perfect health.

Yes started a day or so ago critter seem to have gained some intelligence as to when they are outclassed, They try to retreat from you faster if your overpowering and may not advance you if they see you as more powerful...

My guess is this is part of the new NPC controls that have been promised for so long.. To me it's great tohave a bit of a challenge to chase em down now.. just wish my entangle spell was a help.

We're playing with NPCs and preparing them for what's to come...

Necromancers is going to be our next released class (sorry no date available yet) and a lot of their abilities focus on controlling undead and summoning spirits, which requires NPC-vs-NPC combat and a whole slew of new NPC features. As a result, NPCs are getting some upgrades, including getting more intelligent when and who they should advance towards, etc. Liekwise, they no longer have a 100% chance of retreating anymore nor will they try and retreat ALL the time either, especially if they're especially dumb.

I like the idea of them being more intelligant but when I am in a room with 10 stone giants and all they do is run or sit there. It is kinda off annoying. I am 37th level and not ready for jungatha yet so. If this the way it is gonna go be I will deal with it however
