Huntard Corner: Fixing the Cower & Prowl Problem

Right now, the Cower and Prowl pet abilities are bugged. They'll be on every time you log in, whatever they were at when you logged out, and they'll turn on again when you make major transitions like entering instances or crossing between Azeroth and Outland. If you forget to check it every so often, you will end up with the horror and embarrassment of your pet dumping too much aggro.
The good news is that the fix is simple. It's a one-line command for each ability:
  • /petautocastoff Cower
  • /petautocastoff Prowl

You can put them in a macro, and then assign it a hotkey or button and mash it from time to time, and that'll get you through until the problem is fixed in a lasting way.

OMG THANK YOU!!! I posted blizzard about this, and they acted like I was the only one to have this problem. They told me to reset everything in my interface, delete all my macros, reset my key bindings, and remove and UIs I had.....everything I have is standard, don't use macros that much, and key bindings arn't causing it..their fix was just a joke. Thanks for the macro command. I will be sure to spam that thing!
