I think it would make sense that bosses would find an alternative route to attack you. Otherwise you could easily safe spot them.
I got a couple scenarios that confuse me.
So normally, npcs will not walk through eachother, but would a larger NPC find an alternative route around if its a smaller NPC blocking the current route?
Also, in which scenarios does an NPC walk around an object that blocks its path?
Just like no NPC in OSRS can run(client supports it, server doesn't), no NPC can actually use the smart pathfinder. It is an engine limitation. Private servers often use smart pathfinders cause it's the easiest way out of safespots; It is not the way RS does things though.
As for the issue in the OP, certain monsters(most bosses, some other monsters included) are defined to ignore entity clipping. They will walk through any NPC, and any NPC(even those defined to follow clip strategy) will be able to walk through them. All godwars generals and their minions are defined to not clip behind each-other.
The way way this entity clipping works is pretty straightforward; There are server-side clip flags defined for the purpose of npc, player clipping, and the line-of-sight equivalents for both(I assume the latter anyways). Entities that are defined to clip will set the respective flag to true on the tile they walk to, and will set the flag to false when they walk off the tile(EVEN IF the tile contains another entity - this is how RS does the stacking of NPCs). Entities who are defined not to clip will also not unclip the tile when they walk off it; They just ignore the clipping entirely.
The line-of-sight assumption for the previous paragraph is based off of Brawler NPCs in Pest Control - They will block NPCs as well as players from being able to see through them; Using a dedicated clip flag is the most efficient method of accomplishing that, making it the most probable go-to method of handling it.
But isn't this how people safe spot jad?
If you applied a smarter path finding technique, it would not be the same as what RS does.
1) no, an example of this is the lvl 22s in fight cave block the 180s
2) go on rs, attack something and have a look...
