Fix Version/s: None
Whilst a melee-type mob pursues a player/entity, they may stop attacking once in a while when pathfinding towards their targets (This issue is just like the MCPE counterpart,
- Wither skeleton
- Skeleton (without bow, with bow pathfinding is fine)
- Stray (Same as said above for the skeleton, without bow is only when it happens)
- Cave spider
- Zombified piglin
- Zombie villager
- Iron golem
Do note this list may be incomplete. Please let me know if so and I'll update the list.
- Summon a melee-type mob
- Provoke it
→ Notice the mob randomly stopping and starting pathfinding even though it hasn't made it to its target. This happens randomly and can even last up to 5 seconds before it starts to pathfind again.
