[Having the thrall Freya follow me I provided her a better melee weapon and better bow and like other thralls to continues to cause them to not attack and only attack with the type of weapon they came with in most part if you for instance have a knock out club to a thrall that came preset with a spear they don’t use it but you swap back and they instead start attacking properly, however because of the recent change to archers to move in closer before shooting a arrow it causes them to walk to the target but by then they are on top of the enemy using a melee weapon and they don’t shoot even if they have the proper distance to do so, another thing to look at is increasing the range of when you can target as a thrall archer and actual player to better improve this.
However after this recent experience and incident I have come to my conclusion that the recent change to how archers shoot their weapons to require them closer is the cause of why the archers don’t shoot at all and in some cases they do but swapping the weapons to a better one causes the issue to make them not attack like normal and I have tried to swap back to the old weapons it doesn’t fix it like the melee thralls.
Some visual help showing she walked up to the enemy and oddly kept walking with the bow and never fired a shot and never even attacked the gorilla she was walking to even though that wasn’t the intended target or even a target that attacked me at any point.
Steps on how to reproduce issue:
1.swap archer weapons
2.archer no longer attacks properly
3.swaping back like the fighter units doesn’t correct issue
4.my conclusion recent archer change to attacking distance is cause of this.
