Sword of Crom does not drain stamina from Thralls


Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Recruit a Thrall (Votaries T4 Fighter for extra spice)
  2. Give said Thrall the Sword of Crom and the best Armor you can find
  3. Watch in awe as your unstoppable killing machine slaughters everything
  4. Crush your enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamendation of the women.

lol thats not a bug!!!

thralls dont use stamina! hehehehe.

They did back in the day, it was good to see with those mashinegun axe throwers, wo did actually stop and take a break from time to time whenever say did run out.

It was removed with the patch that made them use ammo I believe?

It however really only is a problem with things like the Sword of Crom.
You would hardly notice the diffence with ordinary weapons.

Can confirm… We are removing this item with our server mod as it wrecks any semblance of game balance. If you are in Heavy Armor with Vitality 50 - youre still likely to get wrecked if the thrall hits you

I was assuming this not to be a bug, and the intended use of the weapon? Otherwise it’ll just end up a fancy wall decoration.

But I suppose this is going to be yet another case of PvP concerns removing a fun feature from PvE gameplay.

sword of crom ts a very rare drop, this isn´t a great problem, we did use it with our last Vathis :smiley: or with some of his named brothers and yes, he is so hardest! Well :slight_smile: if you want kill’em use bow mate :wink:

That’s what I’m thinking too. While I hardly propose to be any sort of authority on PvP, I kinda feel that if you can’t outsmart a thrall, you’re doing it wrong™.

Sure you can dodge around them in pvp, but having a single mistake getting you oneshotted seems kinda off balance wise.

On the other hand it becomes ridiculous when you look at pve.

A Votaries T4 with the Sword of Crom annihilates bosses in no time, without breaking a sweat.

You can literally afk farm the kinscourge or the Dragons in the Unnamed City without a reasonable drawback.

I understand it’s convenient, but it isn’t balanced.

we are 6 people farming in this days, and i can say you, that this sword its have a very rare drop, dont worries if after you catch it, you going to have ONE superthrall against mobs.

Why was i so sure about such a post ? :rofl:

Yes, i think it’s intended, and it’s fun so. Because your char can’t handle it anyway.
So yes, you may think it’s OP. But i think it’s also a cool thing that may happen to a soloplayer.

Can do the same with others weapons though.

This is true. My Captain has a dragonbone two-hander and I can just sit back and watch her crush my enemies, see them driven before me and hear the lamentations of their women. But it’s a huge gap in effectiveness between a dragonbone weapon and the Sword of Crom. If it takes me 12 minutes to slay the Red Mama now, it could take only six if my Captain had the Sword of Crom, and then I could go on to kill something else and get more loot faster. Without the stamina drain on NPC fighters, the Sword of Crom’s damage potential is way beyond anything else in the game.
