We have all had this happen to us.

You are on a mission and the NPC you are battling all of sudden runs the wrong way and gets lost.

You can't recharge your Nano you can't recharge your health.

It used to be that this would last for only a couple of minutes and then timeout. Now, with the latest patch, it seems as though we have taken a few steps backward since you have to zone and loose your maps before you can use your nano and treatment packs.

As long as we have NPC pathing issues Funcom really needs to bring back the timeout.
