    Around 6 months ago they fixed it pretty good, so that if you did no damage and took no damage for 7-8 seconds you dropped combat reliably.

    Now it has slowly become worse and worse again to the point where it is as bad as ever.

    If nothing else they should fix it since it must be extra strain on the server keeping track of who is in combat and who isn't based on some extraneous algorithm that has clearly gone rogue.

    No damage done/taken for +/- 10 seconds you drop combat. Simple.

    I subscribe to ESO Plus only to support the game. I don't need any of the extra stuff I get from paying this subscription.

    Until this bug is reliably fixed I will not be subscribing to ESO Plus.

    Last night, I was in Sej when two EP zergs attacked it. We didnt have enough defense to even slow them down. They came in and came up the stairs. Me and and couple others jumped out the back.

    No EP followed me or attacked me. I ran almost all the way back to the Alessia/Niben bridge before I finally got out of combat. It's rediculous.

    One would think this should be possible. It's probably already meant to be like this, but the spaghetti code keeps you in combat somehow.

    Is it intended for locking players out in certain dungeons as well? Such as blackheart and wayrest where players couldn't open the gate due to the group being in combat, locking them out.

    Agree. Each day in pvp I run in this bug :/. Especially if an enemy warden is involved in the battle. This is so frustrating. Without words :/

    Didn't have the issue in PvE yet. What's the problem in these specific dungeons ? I completed them multiple times with no trouble at all. I tend to play my Dk tank and not the Templar for that sort of content though.

    I left combat yesterday. Had to walk on foot from an outpost to the next keep. I was still in combat when I got inside the inner walls of the keep. That is more than a few minutes.

    I had several events similar yesterday. Multiple times yesterday I somehow entered combat when I could not see any player or NPC. Just mysteriously entered combat

    It is not uncommon that I resurrect in a keep that is not being attacked or even the home base that cannot be attacked (and gates are closed) and I am still in combat.

    This has been in the game as long as I can remember, but had gotten worse. It borders on managerial incompetence that Zos ignores this yet implements harsher requirements for changing skills while in combat.
    Really, idk

    You can't proc clever alchemist when you are not in combat. So drinking a potion will not give you the buff. But if you are always in combat anyways...


    Regarding the Netch I always wondered if the game thinks you have been attacked if you resummon the netch since the old one "dies" and triggers the passive that heals you when one of your pets is killed. However just spamming netch often doesn't put you in combat so it's probably a combination of things.

    I get a bug that prevents me looting or interacting with anything every now and then. I don't know if the game thinks I'm in combat but the only fixes are either opening inventory then closing it or /reloadui. (I don't get the red screen border with this bug)

    I've been getting similar things, however reloadui doesn't solve anything, should check if opening inv works. I usually just get myself killed
