So I was out in Istan just outside Kamdan in Hard Mode when I noticed something odd. Margrid wasn't really doing much of anything.
She would activate apply poison every time she could and would, from time to time, actually fire one and poison something. The trouble is that after poisoning something she would then stop doing anything, no skills, no attacking after firing that one shot, nothing. What she would do is run up next to my dervish and just stand there waiting for me to move someplace else.
I have taken her out hunting with me in HM several times in the past without any trouble. This was the first attempt I'd made since the last update, and in three attempts at clearing that zone with the same odd behavior each time (if she was set to guard, aggressive or passive, didn't matter) I'm willing to say she seems bugged.
Hoping this is something that gets resolved before too long, I rather like hunting with Margrid.
