Subject: Animal Companion RETURN and ATTACK.

A couple of Animal Companion updates have been rolled in this afternoon. The RETURN command will now function properly regardless of the Ranger's visibility. ATTACK was revamped a be a bit more reliable and effective in combat.

Of note, avians now slash with their talons instead of puncture with their beaks, since it never really made sense for them to be diving face first at things. Rodents now puncture instead of slash by default (damage types on their special attack remains the same), due to their biting attacks.

Subject: Animal Companions now follow

For those of you who hunt with your companions, they should now automatically FOLLOW you if you leave the room while they are in ATTACK mode.

Subject: Animal Companions now resume attacking

Animal companions will now auto-resume attack mode while auto-following after an attack.

This is an expansion on the previous update I did, where companions will auto-follow if you leave the room while they are in attack mode.

The window is about three minutes where if you leave while they are attacking, they will auto-engage your new target when they catch up. Please note that they will have to have been in attack mode previously, and when they catch up, will only resume attack mode if you have a current target.
