Randomly Using Special Attack[edit source]

In regards to the Trivia added in this edit: https://runescape.wiki/w/Automatons?curid=450869&diff=7901192&oldid=7822744 . I once came across something like this, but in my (rather small amount of) experience I believe there is a different cause than this happening "randomly": when you attack an Automaton outside of its normal wandering range, it'll retreat (as would any monster). If you don't follow it and continue to attack, eventually the battle between you and the NPC will end. Running around next to the Automaton at this point will not make it attack you. There might be a glitch, where the Automaton still thinks it is in battle, and randomly uses its special attack. After this special attack, it might switch back to its original target, you, and thus start attacking you. Anyone care to test/share their insights? 134.58.179.35 11:11, April 23, 2013 (UTC)
