Bonus chance given by food item to follower is lost at random

Bug Description:

this has been a problem for months now, i reported this i wanna say maybe like 6 months ago and nothing seems to have been done about it since and its become so much worse. this is despite my previous report being marked as received

i noticed while leveling my rhino and named bearer just now that they’ll eat and not gain the bonus chance to the desired attribute despite literally it going down in their inventory and their health going up. used to be that taking the food out of their inventory and putting it back in would reapply the chance which was tolerable but now even that doesnt work. this makes the game borderline unplayable

please fix it



Steps to Reproduce:

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. Please be as detailed as possible; the more details, the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. feed a follower a specific food item, see that the bonus chance is applied
  2. kill enemies and have the thrall level while making sure it takes some damage
  3. notice that either A the follower doesnt level and loses the bonus chance from the food or B levels and still loses it even while eating to replenish health newly gained from increased vitality
  4. this results in followers losing potential stat increases at random. even taking food out of their inventory and putting it back in no longer works EVEN IF THEY EAT IT. i noticed this with my bearer and rhino im currently leveling who both had a good start then randomly decided to stop getting the bonus chance from their respective food items. worse, it seems to happen every level past level 3. theyre currently at level 5. i have not leveled them further because its just infuriating, not to mention it took some doing to get a rhino and a named bearer with these base stat chances so i dont wanna squander them

am i allowed to bump this? its just really aggravating having to painstakingly level a follower this way while being forced to check way too often if its eaten. its frustrating

its just, this has been a thing for around 5 months now and nothing seems to have been done about it
its really frustrating to level up a follower that way
