Yeah this issue has been plastered all over the feedback forums. Its a known issue that I hope they fix soon. I know tanks, and even myself, would love the leeching taunt gems.

Bump the speculative fix did not work. Same issue remains where taunting with a leeching carn does not pull aggro. however switch to a regular carn and all the adds come running.

Are people still posting about it on the forums? I’ve yet to get in game and try it myself. I know AGS said they would continue to monitor but the fix was 100% confident

This is still an issue with rune carnelians. It’s less than before, but it still misses about 50% of the time.

Unfortunedly this is still an Issue. 18.11.2022
I got it a minimum of 1 up to 7 times during Expedition runs.
I swapped the runeglass carnelien with a regular one and it works 100% of the time.
This is something that makes the role as a Tank even worse.
How is this still a bug after 21days of knowledge? This wipes groups and lead to some people flaming Tanks can you please fix bugs like this one, that make a unpopular role even more unpopular?!

There apparently was a fix in the last patch but they were not 100% confident in it. I will continue to bump this

I actually had to change the leeching runeglass out for carnelian during Dynasty mutations day before yesterday because taunt wouldn’t affect enemies. Once I changed it out everything worked fine. Bumping
