I frequently get frustrated when Colonel Baktor shows up. His aggro bounces which causes him to teleport over and over causing crippling lag. I’m not sure if it’s technically lag. Lag is defined as ” a noticeable delay between the action of players and the reaction of the server.” All I know is my computers frame rate drops and I have no idea what’s going on. Most of the time the group is done shrining before I can tell that he’s been killed. I usually have enough time to shrine myself though.
I run DDO on an older computer so I thought that was the issue but I’m hearing that people who have newer computers have the same issue. According to the wiki this bug can be fixed by using a skill that causes his agro to reset or to cast mass invisibility on the group both of which only works half the time for me.
All I know is that when this fight comes up I slowly work my way to the area where the shrines spawn and by the time I get there the fight is over and I can shrine. If possible I don’t run this quest on a healer because I could cause the party to wipe and I wouldn’t even know it.
In the upcoming months I will be acquiring a new computer and I’m hoping that this will help with the issue but I’m not so sure.
