FOLLOW DISTANCE. Seiously can't be more clear about this

I don’t know how bad it was before the hotfix (as I didn’t play after the patch until the hotfix), but it’s still a severe issue in my game. My horse/camel is constantly getting in my way when fighting/harvesting. It feels awful constantly hitting your pet while harvesting, because they insist on sticking their head in the way. Let alone having them constantly violating your personal space while moving about the map. Or having to circle around your horse every few seconds in combat because they have yet again decided to reposition themselves immediately between you and your foe.

I end up doing more damage to my horse than the enemy does, as it gets so frustrating pulling my hits to prevent damaging my horse that I just start wailing away regardless. I find it so incredibly frustrating that I actually start wanting to hit my horse. Get out of the effing way dammit it!

I’ve stopped playing the game due to this bug and the combat music bug, in the hope of a hotfix.

If Funcom considers this fixed…

Yes, but they rarely get involved in discussion in the Suggestions forum. A developer reply could be (mis)interpreted as confirming a future feature, or at least as supporting the idea in a misleading way. And as they don’t have time to comment on every thread, it’s fairer for everyone if they don’t comment at all.

But they do read these forums regularly, and good, popular, realistic suggestions eventually make their way into the game.


So something’s changed. I don’t know if there was something hotfixed, or if the AI has developed a new derp, or if my thrall has simply suffered one too many blows to the head. But something has changed. My Mei the Blade is no longer humping my leg, however, she frequently goes missing. I’ve got her tagged with a marker via the Followers tab, and she’s not too far away, but she’s definitely AWOL and not doing her damn job. Her tactics are set to “Guard Me” and “Attack Distance = 30 meters”. She effs off for a smoke break, I get into one fight after another, and she’s just gone. She does not teleport to my side like she used to if I got too far away. However, if I use the “move here” command, she materializes next to me, zips to where I pointed, then comes back to me & it’s like nothing ever went awry.
