Fighting the Undermother with summoner is a bit problematic

1. If the Undermother paralyses a meatshield, she switches her aggro on main character. If by any chance she gets stuck on paralysed character (it's not difficult, she's big), she gets almost instantly healed(that's because she's a fast runner)
2. If a meatshield gets paralysed, then you have to run for it. If the paralysis wears off, and the meatshield is on the edge of the screen, he/she stays in that place. It also happens in other situations, where you push the enemy far away with wand, and the meatshield chases after it, and goes too far away. The enemy attacks, but the meatshield doesn't.

This is a known issue caused by a handful of game dynamics, with no easy fix. Summoner Mage Builds may have the hardest time with The Undermother, weakened or not.

The Undermother, and other enemies, heal when stuck to prevent abuse by archers and other range attacks (get the Undermother stuck on some rocks, and just peck her to death).

Enemy AI on who to attack when paralysis occurs has pros and cons no matter how it's worked. Does an enemy continue to attack a stunned player? Does it switch to who ever is hitting it?

Because this isn't a true bug (it's how the game works), I'm moving this to Feedback. It's good feedback, but not a bug.

the inactivity distance being different on foes and allies is actually something I must fix and a valid support request. As for the rest, well, it is the Undermother. Not sure if you mean weakened or not but it is an optional fight after all.

True, but since damaging her takes a little time, such insta heal basically means you have to start a difficult fight from the beginning. Not because the enemy is strong, but because mechanic does it.

Well, all the more reason to do it later, and make summoner+disintegrator hybrid :)

Fighting the weakend Undermother is easy. You can also use the daughter to join the fight

Btw is it possible to kill both with one fight? When the daughter join the fight against Undermother and you let her die, will she respawn or stay dead?

Prophet stays dead if she dies in Undermother Fight. She doesn't drop loot though (or didn't for me).
