I have just noticed this issue with my fear ability.

When I fear an animal now, turtle, rapter etc; quite often he will run off
with half it's life gone but if it is gone long enough he resets itelf,
heals all the damage instantly and returns to it's previous course.

Is this because I have learned a level of fear or a bug?

I have seen this happen too (without fear) and I don't play a warlock
atm :)

My guess is that if a mob gets too far from its original points, it
warps back to its starting point with full health.

Maybe he is running out of range of you, then proceeds to run back to where
he was and get a fast health regen and you being where he was you aggro him
again. I havent played a priest that high, but don't you mind flay when
they are feared and it stops them going too far away from you?

I would assume this is similar to if something attacks u, but u run away
from it. If you run far away enough, the beastie will reach a point where it
will stop following you, return to its original course/ route and regenerate
its health.

Possibly but they seem to forget they were ever in a fight and go back to
wandering about like they were before i came along.

Annoying if I have wasted a potion or something for nothing

this dont happen, when u stand at the position where the mob was
standing at the moment u attacked it. it only happens if u chainfear a
mob while running behind him. i think this is all because blizzard dont
want u to pull mobs to guards etc...
