Hello Funcom. I just heard the upcoming follower cap and I think it is not a good idea the way you want to make it. My idea to make this ( if it really happens) better! A Barrack system!
So let say you can have only 60 placed fighters, but you want to have more. You craft a barrack and place it in your base like a wheel of pain or a vault. And you can store the thralls in it that are over the limit or not needed. Only for fighters, archers, dancers and bearers off course! You just go to an unneeded thrall and press E, and there would be a “Send to Barrack” option. The thrall then transported to the nearest barrack.
There would be 3 tier of barracks.
Tier 1: Simple barrack, can hold 10 thralls. (10 slots of inventory)
Tier 2: Barrack, can hold 20 thralls. (20 slots of inventory)
Tier 3: Improved barrack, can hold 30 thralls. (30 slots of inventory)
If you select a thrall icon in one off the slots you can view that thrall and its armour and weapons on the right just like you do with placed thralls when pressing “E” on them to see their inventory. That way you can add or remove their stuff even if they are just stored thralls.
On PvP you could use this to have more fighters so if a purge or raid is going on and your fighters die you could just grab some reinforcements from the barracks.
Well this would be my idea to make this cap thing a little more endurable for players who don’t want to loose any of their thralls.
Please Funcom consider my idea, because I think this would work.
