[PC] Bug - NPC weapon skill

[Describe the bug here]

There is inconsistency in thrall combat skills.

The thralls I recruited at the start of the game engage in combat by pressing either left-click, right-click or rarely control at a very slow rate and perform no combos.

At first, I thought that this was just how it was until I recruited a cimmerian berserker.

Watching him spin with his greatsword and pull off combo after combo got me thinking why can’t other thralls do that?

So I experimented with different weapons on each maybe they have some weapon proficiency that’s not shown anywhere in the UI?
After much testing, I assumed it was only Cimmerians who had the ability to combo so I worked for five hours to get Dalinsia Snowhunter.

Only to find that despite being a named cimmerian she could not combo with a two-handed sword.

After much experimenting, I have found that she can however combo with a one-handed weapon.

So either there’s a missing UI element that tells us what weapons a thrall has proficiency in. Or someone needs to take a look at named NPC’s combat skills because as it is Cimmerian berserkers make all other thralls useless.

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. Test 2h sword on any named fighter vs cimmerian berserker for a noticeable combat skills difference

This bug has already been reported and there is a fix on Testlive. 2.3 patch broke the thrall ability to use weapon types other than the type they started with when you first got them. For example, if you spawn in a Berzerker with a 2h sword, they will only do combos with a 2h sword. Put something else in their inventory and they’ll just take 1 swing. This is not intended.
