Bug: Thralls not blocking with shields


#1

Game mode: Online & Singleplayer
Problem: Bug
Region: All


Per subject, thralls with shields carry them but don’t use them.


Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Find thrall with shield
  2. Attack thrall
  3. Thrall will pull out weapon and shield
  4. Thrall will not block with shield

#2
  1. Thrall will not even attack back sometimes
  2. If its a dancer, they don’t know how to get back to their original position

#3

Yeah what is going on with NPCs not shield blocking anymore? This was a design decision, wasn’t it? From a while ago, not the most recent patch. The game is not as fun, challenging or immersive with this change.
