Fleeing
My party has been exploring a dungeon today, but more than half of the battles I am in, the monsters flee.  This never happened this often to me before.  And now if I am offline, my party is fleeing at every opportunity.  I want everyone to stay and fight!

But like I said, this just started happening today.  Anyone else noticing this?

Re: Fleeing
If you're beating up on weaker monsters, they will flee.

Your party will flee based on their flee threshold. Got to Tools to set that.

Ah, that makes sense.  Guess I am too much of a bully now.  Will have to move up to the next level dungeon then.

I have two questions about this:

1) My "Flee Threshold" in Tools is set at the default of 70.  What does this 70 mean?  % of hit points lost?  The higher the number, the more likely to flee?

2) In any case, this was the same party that is a "bully" in the dungeon.  They are crushing everyone like the maggots they are and causing them to flee often when I am fighting online. But if I am offline, this party flees every combat without even fighting at all.  This seems like a bug....  Or are they too strong to fight when I am offline?

Yes, it's % of hit points lost. There should really be a tooltip for that.

Your Flee threshold is only taken into account during offline combat. During online combat you can manually decide to flee, so you don't need it triggered automatically.
