    Title: POT Sieges spawing liches.
    Reproduction Rate: 3/3
    Blocker? no
    Details: Similar to the NPC towns spawning liches, which was fixed. POT towns seem to spawn only liches. There is one unconfirmed report of a POT town spawning a cabalist, and a chorus of negative responses. Many moons ago, POT town sieges would often spawn liches, but also often spawn cabalists. More recently (for a year?), all POT sieges spawned cabalists (perhaps another way to word it is - POT sieges only occurred when cabalists were on the job). Could you verify that POT sieges are spawning cabalists as intended, and perhaps restore the POT behavior from the last ~10 releases?
    Steps to Reproduce: Enter a POT siege. Clear it. Encounter 3rd string waterboy (Lich Mage).

    Enter issue #63887 for review. Not sure if this is a bug. We did change the siege design somewhat this release in order to accommodate players in parties.

    Just to chime in, I also went 3/3 for Lich Mages at the end of a siege battle for POTs. These were 3 separate POTs, too -- it was NOT the same POT siege three times in a row.

    Before this release, I only encountered the Lich Mage once in my whole career here.

    Now, I stopped doing sieges because I'm pretty sure it'll be a Lich Mage rather than a Cabalist.

    We have been able to identify a bug here and we should be able to get a patch out soon with a fix so that cabalists will once again appear in POT sieges.

    This might be working now as of patch 916? In the two weeks before 916 I soloed at least one POT siege every day. Every single one of them was a Liche Mage. Now for the past two days I have seen Cabalists as before. There is nothing in the patch notes about this so maybe the issue is more intermittent than I thought. But it is hopeful. :)
