Pulling with BowFollow

Alright, was out lvling my RNG with a DRG friend in ERF last night. Came across two goblins (Thug and Weaver) around a fire pit. They both con'd tough, and they were pretty close to each other, so we healed up and I targetted the Weaver, figuring we'd take that out first then deal with the aggro'd thug.
Only, when I shot the weaver, the thug didn't aggro. Did it again, later, with three gobs that were almost on top of each other (little red circles touching in the radar map) and STILL didn't aggro anything but the target.
So, my question - anyone else notice this extremely cool and useful pulling ability when using ranger? I mean, if this holds up for the future, Rangers then become *THE* puller for any party. I know we've got "precaution", but I thought that was just for when moving around; didn't know it applied to active aggro as well.

I've had one goblin follow another one into camp in Burimiru Peninsula, and they weren't THAT close together. Goblins wear these masks, and are entirely unable to see behind themselves. Perhaps when you pulled, the second one wasn't looking at the first.

We do rock at pulling. I can see how useful it would be for high level rangers to have thief and FLEE for subjob :)

Hrm, maybe that was it, but my DRG friend (subbed WHM) cast Dia on one in a similar situation and got aggro from two.
I'll have to try it with other mobs and in other situations. Heading to Ghelspa on a supply run (I need lizard skins, etc., for leatherwork), so I'll try it on a few orcs too.
Let you know how it works out.
