    Title: Charlotte Gray barks non-stop when player is in combat mode (z)
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? No
    Details: Saw this the other day also during Sannio's stream and mentioned it - he made a note of the barking. To add to that - I noticed she barks particularly non-stop when you are in combat mode (z):
    "Ow!"
    "Stop That!"
    "It HURTS!"
    .. etc

    She seems to enter this crying animation loop with those barks - instead of staying in combat mode - she will exit combat mode after a few seconds of stopping movement.

    Steps to Reproduce: Enter combat and stay still - observe her behavior. Stay in combat mode and run a bit until Charlotte starts to follow you - observe her being in combat mode and then entering a crying animation loop and start barking.

    That behavior freaked me out as a new character on that path; I kept thinking she was being attacked and looking around to see where the extra enemies were, and how to make her actually stay back at safe range the way I'd already told her to. Annoying as heck to realize no, she was fine, just complaining to get attention. Made me want to smack her rather than rescue her. (Well, okay, maybe smack and rescue, I'm not completely heartless.) But NOT something you want brand-new players to experience.

    Is the problem with Charlotte's barks still happening? I made a small change that I believe is now on the live server that I'm hoping helped her situation.

    @Sannio she's not doing it out of combat anymore - but she still barks non-stop when the player is in combat and she is in combat mode and doing her crying emote in a loop.

    The settings that normally allow me to change bark frequencies aren't working, so I wrote up a new bug for a programmer to look into. Issue #64835
