I know the lord of beasts Jebbal Sag is coming soon, which means maybe this won’t be as much of an issue then but until then.
I was experimenting with various weapons you can give thralls and on a whim I was like what happens to a thrall if they fight a wolf with a truncheon?
The answer is the wolf wins. Truncheons do no health damage and KO only applies to humans, so you can watch a fighter club a wolf in the face until the fighter dies.
I am actually pretty sure this is what happened to my base last night, either I or someone near me got purged while I was offline and my part base got wrecked in the process killing 4 of my thralls simply because they didn’t have a weapon that did health damage.
My archers were fine as blunt arrows still deal damage to animals, which is why I figure it was an inhuman purge that got me.
