The characters in my team pick a hostile and auto-attack it when their original target dies or whatever. It would be nice if the list of hostiles to pick a target from did not include my charmed/confused companions. I would rather the AI controlled companion stayed idle if the only targets it could pick were temporarily hostile friendlies (or neutrals ?)

 

I don't mind the micro-managing but preventing this is an added hassle,.. beside it is immersion breaking when the enemies are dead and 5 of the team pile one the poor companion who is temporarily hostile.

Yeh happened to me too. It makes no sense, sometimes the characters don't even auto-target enemies once their intiial target dies but when their ally gets charmed they just go rogue on him. Looked funny at first, now it's becoming a nuisance with the limited resting.

I agree. This is something that should be changed. I understand the Confused ailment, that's all good. But why would/should my party start attacking him? It's ridiculous!

Well, if a friend suddenly started attacking you with deadly intent, you'd probably at least try to defend yourself and might have to hurt them a little, even if you were trying not to harm him in the process. :lol:

...the AI just tends to attack whatever is attacking them. I haven't noticed, in my game, them attacking Charmed/Confused party members unless that party member actually engages them first.

And if you've paid a little more attention you might've noticed some gratuitous crazy disengagement attacks going  off against your hapless charmed allies as they PEACEFULLY stumble around the place ...  AUTO ATTACK is a blight!!!

 AUTO ATTACK is a blight!!! 

Honestly, can we have an option that completely turns off the Ai of party members? Thats the one thing that ruins all the encounters.
