    Default Decoy attacks random targets

    I noticed today while working on the target dummy that once summoned the decoy would randomly attack something in its line of sight. That something would often be the dummy I was attacking or just as easily could be another dummy or one of the event mobs running around meridian.

    Is this working as intended?

    If it is working as intended do we have to worry about it breaking crowd control?

    If it is working as intended and does break crowd control what use is it?

    Most people use CC on Laethys, Drak, and Rusila.

    It does 12-14k damage over the course of its duration.

    Yeah, I've seen it end up parsing over 270 DPS in raids.

    Wait, would that also be the answer to the "what use us it" portion of the OP?

    Some one pointed out to me, and I actually watched for it, that if you're attacking a target and your target dies, the decoy will pick a random new target to start attacking. No bueno!

    However, When my target that I'm attacking is up, it goes for my target.

    I haven't yet seen it break a CC.

    This is the behavior I've noticed as well, causing me to remove it from my rotation.
    Randomly aggroing mobs is a deal-breaker for me.
    Just wondering how much damage I'm missing out on?
