It is so heartwarming to see when your thralls respond. When you see those bow archers you placed some time ago spark into life and don’t let your opponent heal by connecting those poisoned arrows on his face.
You feel very joyful when you see three of your T4 800 armor thralls with endgame weapons corner your human opponent and shred him to pieces. It feels even better when you fight all these people by yourself and functioning thralls.
But sadly most of the time they do not. It is such a wasted potential, a combat thrall with the ability of high customization and strategical placing, go all to the bin because they simply don’t work!
Just standing there like fools taking all the hits.
There was a day where the AI on thralls worked superbly and I made one thrall with legion gear and bow + daggers follow me and lo and behold the thrall did not let the aggressor heal up and put lots of pressure into my opponent. Sadly i still had to get hit for it to react. It reacted way more fiercely when it was on its own however.
I see so many beautifully made bases on the PvP servers, it pains me to see most of them empty with no defenses aside from one naked person running around with a repair hammer. The chances of a player made wall with archers on battlements, the thought of fighter thralls right outside a gate that is about to fall ready to welcome invaders with steel all of it falls short and dumpstered because of this issue that has been around for so long.
It is a shame, just like the purge not working, a big shame that such an awesome feature is never to be seen in the exiled lands.
