Description

Issue: The AI in OpenMW will keep attacking you underwater until they drown themselves. This means that you can aggravate an entire town, swim underwater, cast a breathe water spell, and wait for your pursuers to die. In vanilla Morrowind they attempt to resurface before coming back to fight you.

Things that I'm not sure about in vanilla:
1. What happens when they are unable to resurface? Will they try to take you down with them?
2. Do NPCs with breathe water potions/spells try to use them if they are out of options?

IMHO this feature should be "promoted" to bug, because it makes at least one quest very difficult to finish, as described in #1488. At least to finish it we need much more efforts and special spells (e.g. water breathing for NPC if it exists) that were not needed in vanilla Morrowind.
