Sometimes when a mob starts to flee it will instantly disappear and end up somewhere else in the zone. This usually causes a train of mobs to swarm and attack you after some time and so is pretty bad for player experience. I have noticed it in the following areas

 - SolB near the lava surrounding the efreeti camp
 - CT beneath the temple areas in the tunnel just before the ooze pool
 - Upper Guk AC camp

These areas do have something in common: in each area, there is a body of water preventing the mob from fleeing to some destination by land. I suspect this is the cause of the issue.

I've encountered this behavior as well, particularly in Dulak.

Once the NPC reaches the threshold to begin fleeing, it appears to warp under the world, then appear a short distance away, usually in a place inaccessible to players.  This begins the long path of trains that will usually arrive around 5 or 10 minutes later, depending on how far away the fleeing NPC gets before reaching another mob to share social agro.

Unfortunately we are not sure how to fix this "glitch"  -- at least not at this time  :(
Work like you don't need the money
Love like you've never been hurt
Dance like nobody's watching

Is there any chance you can do something to at least mitigate this? For example in the ooze pool area in CT this is a really big problem. Maybe configuring those oozes not to flee could make that area less of a death trap.
