When did they take away the ability to use Herding to drag animals in/out of dungeons?

Seriously not happy about this one. :(

How long ago was this? In my experience with herding, I was never able to lead them out of a dungeon. I have been able to lead them over server lines however, though some herded creatures at the back of the train get stuck on occasion.

I do remember a time herding was nerfed, however. I used to be able to herd creatures and if they ran off to attack something or someone, after the battle, they'd return to my herder, still herded. What's more, if I died, they would still follow my ghost around. I had a blast chasing pvpers in Fel Destard with that, likely the reason it was nerfed.

It is newer than the addition of Greater Dragons, since that was the last thing I used it for - herding them out of Destard to tame without 10 bards running around provoking them onto each other.
(and stealth herding them to the Yew gate in fel)

You shouldn't have been able to herd a greater out of destard.

In trammel I've never been able to herd out of a dungeon. I probably started my herder in 2005/2006.

Not sure on the Fel ruleset.

Yeah, I've never been able to herd them out of dungeons on Pacific. I wonder if it was a Lake Superior glitch which got cleaned up with one of the newer publishes.... It would be awesome if you could, however! So you could herd them through moongates too?

I've played on LS since 2002.

No bugs I know of.

I began using it for that purpose when the GD was a Single spawn at server up in Destard, and for as long after as I had herding (a little over a year)
