Did any one else notice major changes recently?

I don't know if the following were fixed by mistake but:

With Moles; Before when they did their underground attack no matter how far I ran they'd get me when they resurfaced. 6 times in a row now (in the same Leve) I've unlocked and run from the moles and they missed as long as I wasn't stationary. I got hit once by a 3rd mole when I unlocked target but didn't keep running in circles.

The next thing is before when I'd start to feel overwhelemed in a Leve battle I'd unlock and run away until the mob had a message saying it disengauged. At which point I'd do the same and start to heal. The mob would be healing all this time as well. On my current Leve that I'm in the middle of (ok I'm most likely at full now) healing for I did just that but the mob stayed at its zone line instead of returning where near I got it from and didn't heal at all while I did. *Edit* Mobs are healing just extremely slower than before, slightly slower than PCs heal

While the last I think may be a flaw, the first item I think is a major improvement.

It might be lag?

I've always ran from moles for the past week and (after a certain distance) never got hit.

On the leve thing, I was fighting some assassin Lalafel doods and their placement was the same (I died and came back to the leve spot) but he restarted to heal after a certain point.

Nope not lag (it was hit or miss in Beta for me, but I don't exactly play during congested times since release), but I did edit my second bit, because they are indeed healing, just not as fast as they were. It's slightly slower than I heal when I'm not in battle stance.

Moles aoe move has always been avoidable since Beta2. However if you are in its spawn range still after you have run away this means you may still be hit. A classic example of being out of spawn range but still very close to the mob is the small circular camp near camp Bloodshore (go north of the camp, through the tunnel, out the other side and head north west. There is a group of moles there that you only have to run a short distance from to avoid the move because they have a very small spawn area.

The thing is now I can be like 1 ft away from where it pops up, I've retested multiple times and it seems as long as I'm moving I don't get hit no matter the distance.

*EDIT* NM I see what you're saying, I didn't test it that way as the Leve mole are prespawned before I get to the area.
