There has been a lot of glitches with the cloning potion. There has been instances where you clones shoot arrows even if you have earned different item from the treasure chest (if you had the bow). There has been times where the clones get stuck in places. Before, the clones were not able to spawn next to you. Now, when you spawn a clone, they have 2 seconds invincibility, and cant move.
There are a lot of problems with clones, and they only last 15 seconds now, so is it worth the trouble of keeping them around and having to fix multiple problems for them?
