Named thralls change appearance in wheel of pain

Game mode: Online official
Type of issue: Bug

Named thralls apparently change appearance while subjugated in the wheel of pain. I noticed this after KO:ing Cannibal Brute, a named Darfari thrall who before wheel of pain was a humongous 2m tall woman (probably maxed out on height). After she came out of wheel of pain she had apparently lost about 40 cm of height and looked just like any other Darfari woman. I was EXTREMELY disappointed. This has happened with other named thralls as well.

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. Capture a named thrall
  2. Put them in a wheel of pain (T1 and T2 tested)
  3. Wait for it to come out and place him/her

None of the abnormally tall thralls will maintain their abnormal height once broken. It is probably intentional.

But its immersionbreaking, stupid and lame? I would really love to have a personal colossus as bodyguard…

And what do you mean by “abnormally”?

T4 Thralls are significantly larger, to make them more recognizable.

This additional height diminishes upon breaking them.


Yeah, sure, but thralls should not change appearance when in the wheel.
Maybe just a small thing for some, and they don’t care, other will, because they try to chose theyr thralls. Also after a while, when you have catched and seen so many, some change is still nice.

So i can fully understand that some may be frustrated experimenting that.

While a agree largely with the idea, i think the reason is simply more technical.

Different sizes are harder to handle by engine, and animations especially may end up acting wrong if pushed to far. As we know, some physics issue with hair, clothes and such are also related to aleration of body-size.

But yes, would be fun having ever a frost-giant standing at the mighty gate. :wink:
