Aksha AI tracking bug

In the Bone castle, when you fight Aksha, if you stand on the balcony, her AI will track to below you (if she is out of shadow teleports?) and she won't go towards either staircase to get to you. 

Meaning as of right now, if you have long-range fighters or spellcasters you can get her stuck beneath you, and just easily take her out (as long as you can get around her darkness spells...)


Also, is she supposed to be able to have two darkness areas at one time??

Ps: I have done the fight three times, one with a different party, and all three times her AI did this.

Only fought her once (for now) and had a similar experience. My paladin with 21 AC, shield lit by the Light spell and under Protection from Good and Evil was standing in the balcony doorway, blocking the way. Others stayed behind him and only came to the balcony on their turns to make ranged attacks/cast ranged cantrips and then come back on the same turn. Aksha started a fight with going upstairs, but then retreated (never went for stairs since then) and stayed away until both her servants were killed. Once or twice she came underneath balcony, but from a certain point she was only repeating three actions in the same order:

  1. Teleport to the opposite (from balcony) side ot the room, close to book shelves.
  2. Move towards balcony for about 8 cells, staying on the floor (not going for stairs).
  3. Come close to balcony, one cell away from going underneath it.

She got stuck between two positions (teleporting occasionaly between the two), under the floor, but appearing behind bars in one of the areas ;-)

She cast Darkness in 2 places, so disadvantage for each turn on my side. After more than 75 rounds I could finally kill her. Yes, it was a bit boring.

I'm not sure why the Darkness spell should last that long. 5 people per round makes 30 seconds, so 70 rounds is 35 minutes (fortunately shorter as a player). This spells should last 10 minutes at most and depends on concentration, so even considering she could keep the concentration in spite of the blows, it's a bit long.
