    Bug #: 54225. I could repro. Doesn't seem to matter if it is self damage or mob damage.
    @Rinaldi is this something you have experienced as well? I recall you mentioning your water pet yesterday...

    @Lexie in 709 it worked (slower than normal but the water-pet did heal me)

    - seems my setting it to "aggresive" tells him to first attack and then stroll away if it found an enemy and not stay near the avatar (a lot more range than before if i may say so), so it was out of range to heal

    - healing self or my avatar seems to be slower than before

    not checked in 711 (still loading :( )

    PS : why is the steam update 4.3GB and the standalone updates only 30MB (Patcher127) + 294MB (709->710) + 126MB(710->711) ??

    Interesting. This could explain some of the problems that I was experiencing. I did have "some" heals, but not as many as before and it often felt like I was "on my own" with regards to heals, coupled with what seem(ed) like an extreme level of crits from archer mobs.

    It's not 100%. After some fighting (not during), I noticed that the elemental was healing me very rapidly, even when I was full. I tested again in the next scene and received no heals.

    in 713 i had both behaviours - one time i got heals en mass next time after i jumped over some stones and it couldn't follow it didn't heal me while beeing near death after it teleported into the fight (but still did attack with measly 3-12 dmg hits...)....

    I'm actually noticing similar behavior as well. There are times when I will be standing there with full health yet the water elemental is spamming heals on me. However, as I write this, I'm low on health both in and out of battle and yet my water elemental is just standing there.

    @Lexie - I am seeing this also - it seems to heal only OUT of combat.

    @Lexie - this was reported fixed today in the patch notes, however the water elemental is still not healing in build 714.

    i cna confirm that

    @Lexie
    maybe give us some clues about the wanted behaviour for passive/aggressive etc.

    my water elemental is on aggressive and did heal me alot before the actual Release, if that was a bug than we should know this PLEASE

    It will heal in all 3 modes. The way the modes work for all summons, AFAIK, is:

    Passive: Do not attack enemies, but if the elemental is attacked, it will defend itself.
    Defensive: Attack enemies that attack you, or the elemental.
    Aggressive: Attack any nearby hostile enemy

    ah ok - the way it seemed to work pre-R49 bug, was the elemental would heal itself first, then you, and then any party members - in that order of priority.

    FYI @Scrambler and @Lexie - still seeing this in 716 - I did have my water elemental heal me a single time last night tho - but that was it.

    We reopened the issue. I had to fix a more bugs with creature healing and behavior priorities. The primary issue was failure to heal unless it was in combat.

    It's working well according to internal testing, so look forward to better behavior this coming release - It will heal you or itself as needed.
