I think the idea is that they act normally (melee) other than when you are actively firing poison darts. This means that they will run in to attack when you are not firing poison darts, and then shoot a poison dart from their current position when you shoot.
I have not seen a bug where they will not shoot at all. Have you tried backing off so your fetishes re-group around you? This should give you a clear line of sight so you can really see if they just run past you and melee while you are shooting darts.

|Hi Guys, |
just updated the game and noticed while grifting solo that Fetishes will stop after 1-2min in game from shooting darts and they go physical!!??? only way to get them to shoot darts again is by dying and then the new batches restart shooting darts and then again they stop after a min or so! anyone noticed anything since patch?... I tried this 6 times and in all 6 times it happened.
please let me know if you have noticed anything.
yea i tried backing, teleporting to town and come back with the army.. I mean i am shooting the dart and they are not and even when the mobs are dead and i moved to another room they stay in melee state and no dart shooting..it is weird i know but i was wondering if anyone encountered that one before.. this is first time i see this and been playing WD for a long time now. I just went back to SMK and will do more testing on another computer see if this is computer related.
I just had the same issue. Only way I could get them to start firing again was to wait for the cd and resummon them. Cost me a 48 grift.
So to fix the lag caused by carnevil players they made them not shoot at all. Genius!
I had the same problem just now. Except that when I port to town and back, it reset them to normal. But yes it is completely killing any sort of grift progress when you have to waste several minutes resetting your fetish army.

|We're currently looking into an issue where Fetishes sometimes forget to shoot despite the fact the Witch Doctor has a Carnevil equipped. We'll be sure to give you all an update once we have more details to share, but we're not there just yet. Thank you all for the reports, and good hunting out there!|

Well, official confirmation helps. Now we hope for a speedy solution.
For what it's worth I'm playing a Dart Doc in Season 3, so I'm crossing my fingers (hooves?), too.

|We're currently working on a hotfix that should address the problem where Fetishes "forget" to attack targets when a Carnevil is equipped. Right now I don't have a concrete time frame to share for when we expect that hotfix to arrive, but keep an eye on the hotfix list for updates. Additionally, this fix should also positively affect the lag issues some of you have been experiencing. That said, we'll definitely be keeping an eye on things once it has been deployed to make sure everything is working as intended. Thank you for all of the helpful reports.|
