Default Making mages move around

Shadow, is there any way to get mages to move around? As soon as you're in range they just stand there and shoot at you. One way would be to change their behavior stack to simpleRanged like skeleton archers (which uses retreat and approach data), and just add a useSkill behavior. Mages/shamans don't ever use their melee attack anyway since you're always in range of their spells and there's no reuse time.

But even then, if you're a mage or an archer attacking from a range, they won't ever move from their position. With bosses in particular this makes them seem very silly. Any ideas?

Your best bet is probably to make them retreat/approach in some manner. You should be able to give them conflicting ranges but make times high enough that they move fairly often but don't run back and forth.

That's a good idea. I'll give it a try.
